Helena Santos, Chief Executive Officer of Scientific Industries, stated, 'We are delighted by the financial performance for fiscal 2022, driven by the continued sales momentum from Genie and Torbal brand products, particularly the market acceptance of our VIVID automated pill counter.

John Moore, Chairman of Scientific Industries and Scientific Bioprocessing, Inc., ('SBI'), said, 'Fiscal 2022 was a year of tremendous progress as we advanced our vision of creating digitally simplified bioprocessing with our newly introduced DOTS platform. We are in the process of creating a new category of real-time smart sensors and systems for cell culture and bioprocessing laboratory workflows driving operational efficiencies and improved yields. We continue to make positive strides in developing key research collaborations, as we have our DOTS platform at six of the top 15 academic synthetic biology pilot plants in the U.S.'
'Subsequent to the end of the fourth quarter, we received very positive feedback indicating growing acceptance of the DOTS platform. This is an important indicator for the potential of future revenue growth as we continue to introduce greater efficiencies to the bioprocessing function in the months and years to come,' concluded Mr. Moore.
Fiscal 2022 Financial Review
Net revenues for fiscal 2022 increased $1,625,300, or 16.6% to $11,400,500 from $ 9,775,200 for fiscal 2021, reflecting increases of $937,500 and $687.800 in net sales of Benchtop Laboratory Equipment Operations and Bioprocessing Systems Operations. Driving sales for the year was in part due to continued COVID-19 related research and testing, increased sales of the VIVID automated pill counter, and the increase in Bioprocessing' revenues was primarily due to a full year of sales of products from Aquila biolabs GmbH, which was acquired by the Company in the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2021. The gross profit for fiscal 2022 was 50.3%, approximating fiscal 2020's gross profit of 50.9%.
The Company realized a loss from continuing operations before income tax benefit of $5,648,800 for fiscal 2022 compared to a loss of $3,110,000 for fiscal 2021, primarily due to increased operating expenses of its Bioprocessing Systems Operations. reflecting a significant increase in personnel and related costs, across all departments which include product development, administration, and sales and marketing; partially offset by the profits generated by the Benchtop Laboratory Equipment Operations.
As a result, the Company reflected a net loss of $5,644,400 (or $(0.85) per share) for fiscal 2022 compared to a net loss of $3,672,500 (or $(1.15) per share) for fiscal 2021 based on a weighted average number of shares outstanding of 6,637,471 shares and 3,189,602 shares for fiscal years 2022 and 2021, respectively.
