Year end report 2018

Word from the CEO

”2018 has been an exciting year for AroCell with several major events. In April, AroCell signed a global non-exclusive license agreement with F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd (Roche). Roche is the market leader in diagnostics and the diagnostics part of the company has sales of just over SEK 100 billion and a global market share of around 20%. The license agreement gives Roche global sales rights for which AroCell receives royalties from future sales. Through the license agreement and the future cooperation with Roche, AroCell has very good prospects of making TK1 a standard biomarker in diagnostics and treatment primarily on analysis platforms intended for larger central laboratories.”

Michael Brobjer, CEO
