SAN DIEGO, July 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- ProciseDx Inc. announces a $13 million convertible note financing to support international commercialization of the ProciseDx platform and US regulatory approval. Participants in the financing round included existing major shareholders (Nestlé Heath Science, Biosynex SA) management and new investors.
"We're investing to bring the ProciseDx Point-of-Care platform to the US market and to accelerate international growth." said President and CFO, Peter Westlake, "This funding round enables us to move forward with FDA submissions for the platform and to expand our test menu for gastroenterologists."
ProciseDx has obtained CE Mark on its instrument and on four gastroenterology (GI) assays which were launched in Q3 2020. ProciseDx has established distribution relationships in more than 15 countries in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and expects to continue its market expansion for the rest of 2021. These relationships are driving rapid growth. Already over 100 instruments have been shipped to EMEA and further growth is expected in the second half of 2021. The company expects revenues of between $2 million and $3 million for 2021.
ProciseDx has submitted a 510k application to the FDA for its instrument and Procise CRP assay. Further submissions for additional assays are expected in 2021 and will create a compelling menu for GI's in the US.
"The ProciseDx platform has been generating impressive data in Europe and the US," noted Dr. Larry Mimms, CEO and CSO.
So far this year, there have been three publications in ChemRxiv on the performance of ProciseDx assays for C-Reactive Protein (Procise CRP), fecal calprotectin (Procise FCP), therapeutic drug monitoring of infliximab /Remicade (Procise IFX) and adalimumab /Humira (Procise ADL). Five scientific posters on ProciseDx assay performance were presented at the European Crohn's and Colitis Organization meeting in July.
