The Management Board of Sygnis S.A., based in Gdańsk (hereinafter: Sygnis), informs that today it has concluded an agreement with the Marcel Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology of the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAN), based in Warsaw, for the sale and delivery of a super-resolution microscope of the GSD (Ground State Depletion) type, together with equipment, for the net amount of PLN 1.6 million (payment will be made after the object of the agreement has been fully executed). As part of the contract, Sygnis is also obliged to install and commission this microscope, provide calibration slides, and train employees of the Institute of Experimental Biology in its operation. Sygnis will provide a 36-month warranty for the microscope and is obliged to provide at least 36 months of warranty service. Sygnis is obliged to complete the contract in full within 90 days from the signing of this agreement. The agreement also contains provisions for contractual penalties, the amount of which will not exceed 30% of the net remuneration.
