NEW YORK – SomaLogic reported on Monday morning that its Q3 2021 revenues were up 40 percent year over year, driven by an increase in assay service revenues.

For the three months ended Sept. 30, the Boulder, Colorado-based company posted revenues of $20.0 million, up from $14.2 million in the year-ago period.
