    Clement Forget , President and CEO of Clemex Technologies Inc. declared: "The industrial sector continues to improve in the United States , and this reflects in increased sales for that geographical sector. Our profitability has been affected this third quarter by the increase in our operations costs. We have sustainably continued our efforts of commercial development and R&D activities of our Hematology instrument while investments have also been carried out for the development of a new corporate Web site. These initiatives will contribute to structure and promote the future developments of the Company. As far as for the development of the new instrument for Hematology, we have recently made important progress and we are close to complete a working prototype."

    He continued; "Even if carrying out this project has taken longer than anticipated, we are very satisfied by the work achieved. We have overcome important technological milestones which encourages us for the next step of the project. We expect to test our first units this spring and reach a commercial deployment later this fall".
