MicroFluidic Systems' current pipeline of potential government contract opportunities exceeds $40 million, some of which are expected to be awarded over the next several quarters. We remain confident that over the course of the next several months we will have positive news relating to our iglucose product and homeland security opportunities within our MFS subsidiary," continued Caragol.
