Hamilton Thorne Announces Passing of Diarmaid Douglas-Hamilton

BEVERLY, Mass. and TORONTO, Jan. 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hamilton Thorne Ltd. (TSX-V: HTL) ("Hamilton Thorne" or the "Company"), a leading provider of precision instruments, consumables, software and services to the Assisted Reproductive Technologies ("ART") research, and cell biology markets, today announces the passing of Diarmaid Douglas-Hamilton, Cofounder and Chief Technology Officer of Hamilton Thorne.

Diarmaid passed away on January 19 at age 82, at his lab in Beverly, MA, after a heart attack. He was a well-respected inventor, entrepreneur, amateur pilot, and physicist with an endless passion for research and innovation.
