BOHEMIA, N.Y., Nov. 15, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Scientific Industries Inc. (OTCBB:SCND) reported net income of $2,200 ($.00 per basic share) on net sales of $1,255,500 for the three months ended September 30, 2010 compared to net income of $43,500 ($.04 per basic share) on net sales of $1,244,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2009. The reduction in net income between the three month comparative periods was primarily due to the lower gross margins of the Company's Catalyst Research Instruments Operations.
Ms. Helena R. Santos, CEO, stated that while the operating results, particularly for the Catalyst Research Instruments Operations, may have been affected by the general economic slowdown, she notes the satisfactory results of the Company's Benchtop Laboratory Operations for the three months ended September 30, 2010, and an order backlog for catalyst research instruments of $692,000 as of September 30, 2010, all of which is expected to be shipped in the current fiscal year.
