ANN ARBOR, MI / ACCESSWIRE / June 15, 2022 / Zomedica Corp. (NYSE American:ZOM) ("Zomedica" or the "Company"), a veterinary health company offering diagnostic and therapeutic products for companion animals, today announced it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire substantially all of the assets of Revo Squared LLC ("Revo").
Revo's innovative MicroView digital cytology platform will provide veterinarians with best-in-class image quality while providing the first in-clinic automated slide preparation system. Slide preparation is a critical part of cytology, and slide preparation errors are the number one reason cited by pathologists for being unable to read a slide. The MicroView platform improves practice workflow efficiency by automating the process to assure a consistent smear and stain in order to produce a readable slide.
Bill Campell, Chief Executive Officer of Revo Squared stated "We are excited to join the team at Zomedica; this deal will bring our MicroView product offering into the forefront of veterinary medicine. For the first time clinicians will be able to have hematology and cytology slides automatically smeared and stained inside a microscope, eliminating human error in slide preparation. Implementing MicroView in veterinary hospitals enhances diagnostics and reduces the wait time."
"We're excited to work with Bill and his colleague Negin Ghassemian as they join Zomedica as Vice President, Imaging Systems and Senior Director, Product Development," said Zomedica Chief Executive Officer, Larry Heaton, "They have done a great job of developing the MicroView system to this point, and we look forward to them leading the effort to integrate the MicroView system into the MyZomedica customer interface, commence manufacturing at our Zomedica manufacturing center in Alpharetta and bring it to market."
The Microview platform is intended for veterinary clinics of any size, especially those where a dedicated pathologist is not available on-site. The MicroView system allows veterinarians the option of reading the slide, and making a diagnosis themselves, or sending it digitally to the MicroView pathologist team for an expert second opinion.
"We're excited to reach a definitive agreement with Revo Squared and intend to close the transaction within 30 days." said Zomedica Vice President of Business Development and Strategic Planning, Greg Blair, "This furthers Zomedica's commitment to bring innovative technologies and tools to market that improve pet outcomes and pet parent satisfaction while also improving veterinary practice workflow efficiency and economics."
