The company had $8.1 million in revenues, down from $9.7 million during the same quarter in 2003. Third Wave said that more than half, or $4.7 million, of total revenues were derived from clinical molecular diagnostics, meaning that this business segment grew almost 90 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2003.
