"Our revenue growth is gaining momentum as we generate more revenue through the sales of our patented LFS scintillation crystals," said Dr. A.F. Zerrouk, Chairman, President, and CEO of Zecotek Photonics Inc. "Our business continues to grow as PET medical device OEMs, homeland security companies and scientific organizations are choosing high performance LFS crystals for their programs. In the third quarter of fiscal 2016 we received orders for our LFS crystals from all three sectors: CERN ordered LFS crystals for its PET medical device program, a Chinese OEM ordered LFS crystals for new line of PET medical scanners, and an OEM ordered LFS crystals for advanced radiation monitoring and detection devices it is developing. These organizations recognize the superiority of our crystals, the reliability our product and our supply. The Beijing Opto-Electronics Technology Company is increasing their production capacity to deliver our LFS crystals to the growing market. We have over $2 million of orders booked and continue to be actively building on the strong momentum. Moving forward Zecotek Imaging Systems will continue to experience revenue growth with the addition of revenue from the sales of our latest version of MAPD/MAPT photo detectors as they become available this summer. We are very much looking forward to capture a major portion of the imaging industry market."
