No Idea whats pushing this up , i have shares at 0.9 so nice to see it mopre than double but little buying , no chat and lack of news feeds .. seems very strange
Top of the leader board so I came on here expecting to see lots of posts and particularly advice of not wanting to be out of PPIX this afternoon. That the MM's want your shares and treeshake when it retraces a little. Can't be long now though. :)

Some higher priced trades put through NEX
And 2 years ago it was 12p
The last time I was in this with a good amount was July 2017, the shares price then was 8.5p. I have been buying in again over the last number of months as it is undervalued but they don't push the company much or use PR.
£1.4m in the bank in May '20 - I did not expect that. this is a high risk share at a low market cap, so I expected them to have much lower than that.
The little lights now packing a deadly punch
By Jessica Bown
Technology of Business reporter

"The tech we are working on could transform water sanitisation techniques and offer access to clean drinking water to even remote developing regions via portable systems," says Christian Zollner from the University of California in Santa Barbara.
Mr Zollner has been working on light emitting diodes (LEDs), the long-lasting technology in modern lightbulbs. They are probably in the lightbulbs in your house, or the headlamps of your car.
Because they are tough and energy efficient, researchers are always trying to find new ways of using them.
Mr Zollner and his team have been working on LEDs that emit ultraviolet light, in particular UV-C light, which is deadly to bacteria and viruses, including the coronavirus.
His goal is to make those LEDs more powerful, robust and cheaper.
"Right now, UV LEDs are capable of a few milliwatts of power. Our aim is to make them 10 to 20 times more powerful.
"Our focus previously was mainly on using them for water sterilisation, but the Covid-19 pandemic has made us realise there is also a big market for sanitising surfaces and equipment. If there is another virus situation in say five or 10 years, this technology could be very useful."
At the moment his lights are powerful enough to cleanse a closed cabinet, but need to be 20 times more powerful to zap a whole room.
The light can also damage human skin and eyes, so the commercial applications are limited.
But one firm has found a use. Californian firm LARQ makes what it says is the world's first self-cleaning water bottle.
Its solution to prevent exposure to UV-C light is to ensure the tiny UV LEDs in the lids of its bottles only come on when the bottles are screwed shut.
Users must then push down on the lid to activate the technology, which the company claims eradicates more or less all bacteria and viruses in 60 seconds.
It might look like an ordinary bottle, but it can zap viruses
LEDs have come a long way since the first were produced in the 1960s.
Back then, the only light the semiconductor devices could generate was an infrared light invisible to the human eye.
Now, they cover the entire visible spectrum, as well as infrared and UV light and come in a dazzling array of forms.
Micro-LEDs that measure less than 1mm across are another of the latest variants.
Designed for use in high-end screens, micro-LEDs promise blacker blacks, brighter blues.
Samsung's giant new screen uses micro-LED technology
Samsung has been showing off its massive screen made of micro-LEDs at consumer electronics shows.
"Micro-LED display technology offers a huge improvement to standard LED panels due to its optimum brightness and image definition," says Damon Crowhurst, head of display at Samsung UK.

and where are they listed ?
Check out AYTU they are the company looking in to uv light etc
i think they could be looking into this kind of stuff sharepicks well done good find

BOOOOOM Covid 19 cleaner for planes

Well unfortunate but the report on the 18th this month:
UV Lasers Market to Witness Massive Growth
Would be excellent for PPIX but covid has slowed it all. However this is a company with a market cap of just below 900k and turning over $14million. Its UV LED technologies may well be applied.
Possibly so. With a market cap of this size, any news linked to Covid-19 where they can help fight the virus would go down very well. I suppose we will wait to find out as they would have to RNS the news if it was material.
The march rns states that PPIX were going into a consortium for UV water disinfection and would apply those technologies once appropriated.
I think this is another area where uv LED tech will be used.

ProPhotonix's award under the grant amounts to €500,000 - subject to the terms and conditions of the grant. The total grant awarded amongst all participants of the consortium totals more than €2.1 million. The entire project is expected to be completed within 48 months from inception. REWATERGY is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie European Industrial Doctorate (EID) training network funded by the European Commission within the Horizon 2020 research and innovation action. The consortium comprises three universities; University of Cambridge (UK), Rey Juan Carlos University (Spain) and Ulster University (UK) as well as two other partner companies; Delft IMP (Netherlands) a designer and manufacturer of nanostructured catalysis materials and FCC Aqualia (Spain), a global water management company, who offer collection, purification, distribution, and treatment of the water collected from the natural environment. ProPhotonix's role in the project will be to deliver a number of UV LED based systems for these applications. Ken Reynolds, Business and Technology Manager of ProPhotonix Limited (Ireland), commented: "Working in close co-operation with our partners, we will deliver a number of novel UV LED solutions for the photo and electro disinfection and decontamination of wastewater and drinking water. Upon completion of extensive field testing and refinement, UV LED based systems are expected to be commercialized at the end of the project. Further, the additional expertise developed for REWATERGY will enhance ProPhotonix's offering for broader applications."

Interesting but do we know if PPIX is involved in this or wanting to? this share was on my watch list about 4 years ago and I have only revisited it because of its tiny market cap. Are results due?
