Latest Biocept News

In Brief This Week: Biocept, Thermo Fisher, Biodesix, More

Nov 23, 2022

Save for later NEW YORK – Biocept this week reported that its third quarter revenues shrunk more than threefold year over year to $5.6 million from $17.5 million in Q3 2021, primarily due to a drop in revenues from RT-PCR COVID-19 testing. Excluding this testing revenue, Biocept's Q3 revenues fell 10 percent to about $900,000 from $1 million a year ago. The San Diego-based company said that Q3 orders for its CNSide assay for detecting tumor cells in cerebrospinal fluid in patients with suspected CNS metastases increased 176 percent year over year and 8 percent sequentially. Biocept's Q3 net loss swelled to $5.5 million, or $.33 per share, from $625,000, or $.04 per share, a year ago. The company finished the quarter with $18.0 million in cash. Thermo Fisher Scientific this week issued €1.25 billion ($1.29 billion) worth of senior notes in a public offering. According to the company, €500 million of the notes are due in 2026 with an interest rate of 3.20 percent, and €750 million are due in 2034 with an interest rate of 3.65 percent. Thermo Fisher said interest for both notes will be paid annually. Biodesix said this week that it has raised $40.3 million in gross proceeds from its previously announced public offering of 35,075,000 shares of its common stock at $1.15 per share. This includes the exercise in full by the underwriter to purchase up to an additional 4,575,000 shares at $1.15 per share. William Blair was the sole bookrunning manager for the offering. Castle Biosciences said this week that the College of American Pathologists (CAP) has accredited its clinical laboratory facility in Pittsburgh following the necessary on-site inspection. Castle took on the Pittsburgh lab through its acquisition of Cernostics in December 2021. BGI Group said this week that it has signed three memorandums of understanding — with the Indonesian Ministry of Health, the University of Indonesia, and the Del Institute of Technology — in the lead-up to the G20 Summit in Bali. The memorandums of understanding cover genomics development initiatives, the construction of related laboratories, and joint research and personnel training, according to BGI. Malaysian Genomics Resource Center this week reported a 59 percent year-over-year decrease in revenues for its fiscal first quarter 2023. For the quarter ended Sept. 30, the firm recorded RM 3.81 million ($830,000) in revenues, down from RM 9.32 million a year ago. Earnings per share for Q1 were SEN .68 compared to SEN .20 the year before. The Petaling Jaya, Malaysia-based company said it has been refocusing its biopharmaceutical business on immunotherapy and cell therapies and pushing growth of its genetic screening business. It also seeks to acquire assets or invest in firms that will support the expansion of the genetic screening business. The firm said it is equipped with a high-throughput sequencing lab, a microarray facility, and a cGMP cell processing lab for cell therapies, including immunotherapies for various cancer types.
