Revenue for the third quarter of 2011 was $6.9 million, decreasing from $7.5 million for the same period in 2010. The Company’s core Life Science and Food Safety businesses continued to grow, with combined revenues increasing 6% compared to the third quarter of 2010 despite a small decline in Food Safety revenue compared to the prior year.
Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 was $21.5 million, increasing 2% from $21.0 million for the same period in 2010. For this nine month period, Life Science and Food Safety revenues increased 13% and 16%, respectively, over the same period in 2010.
Net loss for the third quarter of 2011 was $694,000, compared to a net loss of $29,000 in 2010.
