These results were driven by business growth in our Bioprocessing Systems Operations of 201.1% for the quarter and 3% business growth from our core Benchtop Laboratory Equipment Operations despite significant vendor supply chain disruptions, particularly in the beginning of the quarter, which led to some production inefficiencies. Our Bioprocessing Systems Operations continued their integration efforts, and implementation of their growth strategies.'
John Moore, Chairman of Scientific Industries said, 'We are encouraged by the strong revenue growth and future prospects of our Bioprocessing Systems Operations. We are highly focused on delivering Digitally Simplified Bioprocessing to our customers, as we rollout out our new sensor platform. Our goal is to become a leading provider of real-time monitoring with smart sensors, actuators and data analytics for cell culture and bioprocessing to improve yields and time-to-market.
We also successfully raised $3 million of capital primarily from new shareholders which provides us additional funding for product development and the growth of the Bioprocessing Systems Operations. This is an exciting time for Scientific Industries and I want to thank our team for their hard work and dedication.'
