 CellaVision AB : CellaVision and Sysmex announce a jointly-developed product
                             for hematology labs

This information was released for public disclosure on April 16, 2013 at 3.00
pm CET.

CellaVision today announced that the company and its partner Sysmex have
co-developed a product which integrates CellaVision Digital Cell Morphology
technology with the Sysmex XN-series hematology platform. The product, DI-60,
will be part of the global Sysmex product portfolio for hematology
laboratories.

For the first time, digital cell morphology has been successfully integrated
with a cell counter and slide preparation device, eliminating the need to
manually load the slide for analysis, thus further streamlining the hematology
workflow and providing highest testing efficiency.

Since 2001, CellaVision has had a successful distribution arrangement with
Sysmex and together both parties created the market for digital microscopy
analysis. With this joint product development, Sysmex and CellaVision have
demonstrated a new level of excellence in cooperation.

The target market is primarily clinical laboratories with medium to large
sample volumes. With the DI-60 product Sysmex enhances their product portfolio
of digital cell morphology products, including the CellaVision DM96 and DM1200
systems. Similar to CellaVision's other products the DI-60 automates work
traditionally performed manually under a microscope. Test results are stored
digitally with images of blood cells and other patient information, increasing
the efficiency while improving the quality of the manual differential.

Sysmex plans to present the DI-60 for the first time at the trade fair IFCC
EUROMEDLAB 2013 in Milan, Italy, on May 19-23, 2013.
