Quanterix Q1 Revenues Fall 4 Percent as Instrument Sales Decline

NEW YORK – Quanterix's first quarter revenues dropped 4 percent year over year, driven primarily by lower instrument revenues, the company reported after the close of the market on Tuesday.

Product revenues ticked down to $19.3 million from $20.7 million in Q1 2022, and service and other revenues slid to $8.6 million from $8.8 million, while collaboration revenues grew to $368,000 from $86,000, and grant revenues rose to $222,000 from none.

The Billerica, Massachusetts-based firm posted a net loss of $6.1 million, or $.16 per share, in Q1 2023 compared to a net loss of $18.2 million, or $.49 per share, a year ago. The consensus Wall Street estimate was a loss of $.38 per share.

Quanterix lowered its R&D costs 33 percent year over year to $4.7 million from $7.0 million and decreased its SG&A spending 19 percent to $20.9 million from $25.7 million.

The company ended the first quarter with $329.4 in cash and cash equivalents and $2.9 million in restricted cash.

Quanterix revised its full-year 2023 revenue guidance to a new range of $104 million to $111 million from an earlier range of $103 million to $109 million.
