The company will rely more on distribution partners in Europe for its Unyvero product line while continuing highly targeted commercialization efforts in the US.

The company is developing a new gold standard comparator test after it encountered problems with typical culture methods it used in developing a new pneumonia assay.

The BioFire FilmArray Pneumonia Panel was cleared by the FDA while the BioFire FilmArray Pneumonia Panel Plus was CE marked.

The drug-device combination measures activity of live organisms by detecting metabolites, and can be used to indicate virulence and guide treatment. 

The three-year extension increases the minimum purchase commitments for the Unyvero system, resulting in an increase in potential revenues of €30 million to Curetis.

The Envisia test uses RNA sequencing and machine learning to diagnose idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.

Sales were driven by a strong flu season and growth in Asia-Pacific business.

The firm also received approval from the Singapore Health Sciences Authority to market the Unyvero blood culture cartridges.

The company reported that it signed agreements for 337 instruments , while revenue-generating placements totaled  78 across the US, European, and Middle East regions.

The PCR-based cartridge is designed to detect 21 pneumonia pathogens and 19 genetic markers of antibiotic resistance, and runs on the company's Unyvero system.
