Commenting on the Company's strong financial performance, Lawrence Siebert, Chembio's Chief Executive Officer, said, "Our second quarter results continued the strong momentum begun earlier in the year, with product sales that nearly doubled compared with the second quarter of last year. These gains were led by increased purchase orders from the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (FIOCRUZ), our license and technology transfer partner in Brazil, and from continued strong demand for our rapid HIV tests in the U.S. We look forward to continued growth of our Dual Path Platform (DPP®) product line in Brazil by FIOCRUZ and expect this collaboration to drive revenue growth throughout 2012 and 2013.
