Ultrasound developer Longport of Swarthmore, PA, has received its first commercial order for its Longport Digital Scanner (LDS), a portable ultrasound scanner that captures and reproduces images of soft tissue down to 2 cm (SCAN 1/13/99). The order is for 25 of the systems, and comes from UltraScan East of Allentown, PA.

The order is the latest good news for the company. In April, Longport signed an agreement with Healthlink International of Westerville, OH, in which Healthlink will invest $5 million to support Longport’s R&D efforts (SCAN 5/26/99). The firm then received clearance for LDS from the Food and Drug Administration in June. In September, Longport formed an international subsidiary to begin worldwide marketing of LDS, and applied for listing on the Pacific Stock Exchange.
