OAK RIDGE (WATE) -- IPIX Corp., founded in Oak Ridge, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy Monday.

The last sale of stock on the Nasdaq was .50 a share on Friday.

Its 50 week high sale price was $4.70.

The earnings per share are .78 in the red.

IPIX was founded in July 1986 in Oak Ridge. It developed the first commercially available system that produced 360 degree images viewers could navigate.

In January 2005, IPIX technology was used to help enhance security at President Bush's inauguration after his re-election.

However, the company reported a $3.86 million loss earlier this year.

The company closed its Oak Ridge operations in November and moved its operations to Reston, Virginia.
