SciBase has recently taken over the production of its single use electrodes and is moving towards a launch of Nevisense on the US market. As part of this process, the Company has chosen to strengthen the management team with Niklas Jakobsson who is responsible for the Company’s Quality management system and Regulatory issues.
Niklas previously held the position of Quality manager at Ginolis AB in Uppsala where the electrode was manufactured before it was transferred to SciBase. This and his experience with the US market makes him a natural addition to the management team.
Niklas brings a wealth of other experience to SciBase with almost 20 years working in the MedTech industry. He has held positions within R&D, Production and Quality management for a number of different MedTech companies; many of which have been active on the US market.
This information is information that SciBase Holding AB is obliged to make public pursuant to the EU Market Abuse Regulation. The information was submitted for publication, through the agency of the contact person set out above, at 08.00 CET on November 22, 2016.

About SciBase and Nevisense
SciBase AB is a Swedish medical technology company, headquartered in Stockholm that has developed a unique point-of-care device for the accurate detection of malignant melanoma. Its product, Nevisense, helps doctors to detect malignant melanoma, the most dangerous type of skin cancer. SciBase was founded by Stig Ollmar, Associate Professor at The Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. Nevisense is based on substantial research and has achieved excellent results in the largest clinical study ever conducted on the detection of malignant melanoma. Nevisense is CE marked in Europe, has TGA approval in Australia, and is awaiting FDA clearance in the United States. Nevisense is based on a method called Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS), which uses the varying electrical properties of human tissue to categorize cellular structures and thereby detect malignancies. SciBase is listed on Nasdaq First North (“SCIB”). Avanza is the certified advisor. Further information is available on www.scibase.com.
