The company's revenue was largely attributed to its Acuitas AMR Gene Panel and Acuitas Lighthouse informatics platform.

The method can be used with isothermal amplification and paper-based readouts to detect infectious disease drug resistance in low-resource areas.

OpGen also reported full-year growth was driven by revenue increases for its Acuitas AMR Gene Panel and Acuitas Lighthouse informatics platform.

The kits can detect more than 1,000 antimicrobial resistance gene variants, including mobilized colistin resistance (mcr) and extended-spectrum beta lactamases.
