The KTH Professor Jan Linnros is one of the founders of the company Scint-X.

The company will use the capital for international expansion and to build up large-scale production of the unique scintillator products in Kista.

Scint-X, which has its origin in KTH Research in Kista, has developed a patented scintillator technology for the radiology industry, which means that you get better picture quality through a higher resolution image. With scintillator technology it is possible to reach the next level of resolution in the x-ray industry.

“The capital increase will give Scint-X a flying start to build a stronger organization so we can support our current and future customers. Our goal is to become a de-facto standard in the market,” says Mikael Andersson, Managing Director of Scint-X.

Today - 5 May - you can meet Scint-X at the network event STING Day in Kista.
