Zecotek’s Imaging Technologies Showcased in Partnership with Hamamatsu Photonics at the Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference in Seoul, Korea

October 25, 2013

SINGAPORE, Oct. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Zecotek Photonics Inc. (TSXV: ZMS) (OTCPK: ZMSPF) (Frankfurt: W1I), a developer of leading-edge photonics technologies for medical,
industrial and scientific markets, today announced that the Company
will be attending the Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging
Conference in Seoul Korea from October 27 through November 2, 2013 in
Seoul, Korea. Zecotek will join Hamamatsu Photonics to showcase
patented imaging technologies including an assembled integrated
detector module (IDM) composed of LFS arrays and corresponding
solid-state MAPD photo detectors.

“We are very pleased to be joining our strategic partner Hamamatsu
Photonics at the prestigious Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical
Imaging Conference in Seoul, Korea,” said Dr. A.F. Zerrouk, Chairman,
President, and CEO of Zecotek Photonics Inc. “This is the major
conference of the year for medical imaging and attendees include
vendors, customers, and scientific leaders, all in one single
location. Hamamatsu will showcase an assembled IDM module and the
underlying individual technologies: scintillation crystals, solid-state
photo detectors and addressing electronics. Zecotek will also be
presenting the novel Data Acquisition Board. We have scheduled meetings
with positron emission tomography (PET) OEMs and will also meet with
representatives from CERN. We continue to make significant progress
with the commercialization of our patented and patent pending
technologies and expect further adoption by industry and scientific
leaders alike.”

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers holds an annual
conference which includes three areas of focus: medical imaging,
nuclear science and room-temperature semiconductor detectors. The
Medical Imaging Conference is the foremost international scientific
meeting on the physics, engineering and mathematical aspects of nuclear
medicine based imaging. As technologies advance, multi-modality and
new-generation approaches are becoming increasingly important. There is
a growing emphasis on the methodologies of PET, x-ray, gamma, optical
and MR imaging as they relate to nuclear imaging techniques. Zecotek’s
new IDM design is a patent pending layered structure made of three
principle components: an array of LFS scintillation crystals, an array
of solid-state photo detectors, and a readout system. It is a cost
effective and scalable design, ideal for new PET scanner configurations
and various types of detection devices.

The Nuclear Science Symposium provides the opportunity for scientists
and engineers, actively working in the fields of nuclear science,
radiation instrumentation, software and other applications, to meet and
discuss new developments from around the world. The program emphasizes
the latest developments in technology and instrumentation and their
implementation in experiments for space sciences, accelerators,
homeland security, and other radiation environments.

The Workshop on Room-Temperature Semiconductor Detectors represents the
largest forum of scientists and engineers developing new semiconductor
radiation detectors and imaging arrays. Room-temperature solid-state
radiation detectors for x-ray, gamma-ray, and neutron radiation are
finding applications in fields such as medicine, homeland security,
astrophysics and environmental remediation. The workshop provides a
forum for discussion of the state-of-the-art of material development
for semiconductor, scintillator, and organic materials for detection,
materials characterization, device fabrication and technology,
electronics and applications.

About the NSS/NIC/RTSD

The 2013 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference,
and Room-Temperature Semiconductor X-Ray and Gamma-Ray Detectors
workshop is in Seoul, Korea, from October 27th – November 2nd, 2013 at
the COEX convention center. “Beyond the Imagination of Future Science” is the theme with a commercial exhibition showcasing state-of-the-art
products and services from a wide range of companies held in parallel
with scientific sessions. The exhibition allows both the exhibitors and
attendees ample space for discussions and exploration of common
interests. In addition to the presentation of new technologies, the
conference also provides extensive educational opportunities via short
courses reviewing current topics of special interest. As in past years,
the conference will be making special efforts to obtain support grants
for students to attend this important meeting and take full advantage
of this unique scientific and educational opportunity. This meeting has
always been a great opportunity to get together with old friends and to
make new ones, to exchange ideas and share knowledge and experience in
the nuclear science, medical imaging, and room-temperature
semiconductor X-Ray and Gamma-Ray detector fields. This meeting expects
to bring more peoples from Asia-Pacific areas to make 2013 conference
very special and meaningful so that the IEEE NSS/MIC/RTSD is promoted
greatly. For more information please visit: http://www.nss-mic.org/2013/NSSMain.asp.
