Simoa HD-X Analyzer
Quanterix is re-engineering
ultra-sensitivity with the launch of the HD-X, its latest fully
automated Simoa bead-based immunoassay instrument model. The HD-X
replaces the HD-1, launched in 2013, which first made Simoa’s
ultrasensitive digital biomarker measurements available to researchers
around the world and which has led to over 500 peer-reviewed
publications. The ground-breaking Simoa HD-X Analyzer leverages many
decades of collective technical expertise and leadership experience on
Quanterix’ management team to transform technological innovation into
practical reality for researchers. The new flagship HD-X has been
designed to deliver significant productivity improvements, greater user
flexibility, unparalleled sensitivity, and best-in-class assay
performance across a broad assay menu to empower biomarker research and
accelerate drug development.

“Making pioneering breakthrough technology both consistent and
reproducible is no small feat,” said Kevin Hrusovsky, Chairman and CEO,
Quanterix. “It is only by creating a formidable ecosystem of clinicians,
researchers, and investors compelled by the promise of precision health,
coupled with incredibly talented engineers and assay scientists at
Quanterix, that we have been able to achieve the advances embodied in
the new HD-X. This new instrument is a huge step forward for our company
but more importantly for the researchers at leading academic
institutions and pharmaceutical companies around the world who depend on
Simoa technology to deliver new breakthroughs, develop safer and less
toxic drugs, and accelerate the time to get life-saving therapeutics to

The company is now taking orders for the HD-X, and expects to begin
shipping instruments in the fourth quarter of this year. A trade-in
program is also available for current HD-1 customers. For more

QTRX Capital Raise
Since Quanterix’ IPO in 2017, the company
has reported significant growth in every quarter. Quanterix filed a
shelf registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission
in March 2019, which included a $50 million at-the-market equity, or
ATM, facility to provide the company with the funds to continue
investing in innovation and commercial growth. Last week, the company
sold approximately 2.2 million shares of common stock under the ATM
facility at an average price of approximately $22.73 per share, for
gross proceeds of $49.7 million. The proceeds of the newly issued shares
will be used to fund additional commercial expansion, particularly in
China, to accelerate R&D efforts focused on delivering another 100x in
sensitivity improvements, and to support new product acquisition and
development. Quanterix’ share price has increased 12% from a close of
$22.23 the day before the first shares were sold under the ATM to $25.00
by close on Friday, May 31.

“We are thrilled to have been able to attract new investors through our
growth momentum and vision for changing healthcare,” continued Kevin
Hrusovsky. “Since our IPO we have had numerous investors who have wanted
to participate in our value creation but could not due to limited
liquidity in our stock, so we are very pleased to have been able to
attract some new quality investors, while at the same time putting
additional cash on our balance sheet to further fuel our disruption.”
