Curetis

The firm had been distributing BGI's SARS-CoV-2 test kit but will stop distributing it effective immediately, OpGen's CEO said.

A partnership with Menarini Silicon Biosystems to market Menarini’s portfolio of COVID-19 related products was among its key quarterly milestones.

The additional €5 million from the European Investment Bank will co-fund R&D across the platforms and product portfolios of Curetis and Ares Genetics.

The firm recently announced a collaboration with Sweden’s Karolinska Institute to test COVID-19 pneumonia patients for bacterial co-infections.

The institute will use Curetis' Unyvero Hospitalized Pneumonia panel on high-risk patients admitted to the ICU for COVID-19 pneumonia.

The company's revenue was largely attributed to its Acuitas AMR Gene Panel and Acuitas Lighthouse informatics platform.

OpGen also reported full-year growth was driven by revenue increases for its Acuitas AMR Gene Panel and Acuitas Lighthouse informatics platform.

OpGen, which is acquiring Curetis, said that combined revenue for both companies would have been about $6 million in 2019 had the deal been completed last year.

The company also inked a deal with an investment bank to publicly offer from time to time up to $4.2 million of its stock.

The deal with Quaphaco includes minimum Unyvero A50 instrument and infectious disease test cartridge purchases of €1.9 million over the initial three-year term.
