The company will and has already begun to adjust the company structure and organization. Together with identified partners that are already established in the market the Antrad company will be able to significantly shorten lead times for product development and commercialisation. Within the technology area we have identified a number of areas for improvement which potentially will lead to faster and more robust instruments that can be manufactured at a lower cost. Within the market feasibility area we have additional confirmation for the need of a new device not only in blood banks.
