The Polish company recently received 9 million Polish złoty ($2.4 million) from the country's National Center for Research and Development to support its activities.

The company will rely more on distribution partners in Europe for its Unyvero product line while continuing highly targeted commercialization efforts in the US.

The company's third quarter revenue increase was driven in part by strong growth in its molecular biology clinical applications.

Smaller multiplex molecular panels of five or fewer targets will be covered, while a determination of gastrointestinal panel coverage is expected soon.

The technology works directly from clinical samples and can potentially be multiplexed to detect tens of targets, according to the firm.

The firm plans to use the funds to develop a five-minute point-of-care molecular diagnostic system for multiplexed infectious disease detection.

The researchers are testing the method in a clinical trial of hospital-acquired pneumonia and are working on tests for meningitis and prosthetic joint infections.

The company beat the consensus Wall Street estimate on the top line but missed it on the bottom line. It placed 39 net new ePlex analyzer during the quarter.
