These new shares will rank equally with Bluechiip’s existing ordinary shares that are currently on issue.

“The directors are very pleased with the applications received under the SPP and thank shareholders for their continued support of Bluechiip,” Managing Director and CEO Andrew McLellan commented.

Bluechiip is a developer of IT-based temperature and identification tracking solutions for biosamples in the health and life sciences industries.
It has developed a wireless tracking solution for the healthcare and life science, defence, security and manufacturing industries.
This represents a generational change from current methods such as labels, barcodes and microelectronic integrated circuit based radio frequency identification.
The unique tag is based on MEMS (micro-electromechanical systems) technology and contains no electronics.
The tag can either be embedded or manufactured into a storage product such as vials or bags.
Easy identification, amongst other information, can be detected by the reader which can also sense the temperature of the tagged items.
Bluechiip has ended the day down 5.56 per cent with shares trading for 17 cents apiece in a market cap of $100.5 million.
