Cantor Fitzgerald

The Tucson, Arizona-based company previously raised $20 million through a public offering of its shares and a purchase deal with certain investors.

The investment bank, which maintained its $60 price target for the company's stock, said it is looking for signs of revenue acceleration.

The investment bank initiated coverage on Rosetta Genomics and Veracyte, rating the molecular diagnostic firms' shares speculative buy and buy, respectively.

The company also said that its cash burn rate for Q2 is estimated to be about $4.8 million, or $1.3 million more than its average cash burn. 

Cantor will offer PacBio's stock in an "at-the-market" offering, though the investment bank may also sell the shares through other methods.
