The group added that its Service sector has continued to grow as it integrates its existing business with the Platinum Medical Imaging business that it acquired last year.

"Save as described in this statement, there has been no significant change in the financial position of the group in the period," the company told investors.

"Our broad spread of geographies and technologies, and our strong pipeline of new products help us to remain resilient in the current uncertain economic environment.

"The board anticipates that Oxford Instruments will continue to make good progress, in line with its expectations for the remainder of the financial year and consistent with its 14 cubed objectives."

The share price has risen over 58% in the past year, equal to 643p.
