Recent Highlights

  • Generated core sepsis test revenue of $1.2 million during the second quarter, a decrease of 3% compared to the prior year period.
  • Received a $0.6 million order in July, the largest single sepsis order in company history, including 4 T2Dx Instruments that are expected to ship in the second half of 2022, and sepsis test panels.
  • Received Breakthrough Device Designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the T2Lyme™ Panel and submitted for funding through the LymeX Initiative.
  • Advanced product pipeline under Option 2B of BARDA contract, including the U.S. clinical trials for T2Resistance® Panel and T2Biothreat™ Panel, and development of next-generation products.
  • Formed a Scientific Advisory Board, comprised of leading clinicians and researchers in the areas of infectious disease, laboratory medicine, and pharmacy, to provide strategic guidance.
  • Implemented cost of goods improvement initiative for the T2Bacteria® Panel and the T2Candida® Panel, resulting in a reduction in the manufacturing costs of those products in future quarters.

  • Strengthened our balance sheet by raising $27.4 million of net proceeds through ATM facility, including $4.5 million in the second quarter and $22.9 subsequent to the end of the second quarter.

“Our second quarter results demonstrate continued execution across our three corporate priorities: accelerating our sales, enhancing our operations, and advancing our pipeline,” stated John Sperzel, Chairman and CEO of T2 Biosystems. “While we have seen an expected decline in sales of COVID-19 tests, we are pleased with our continued progress driving adoption of our T2Dx Instrument and sepsis test panels, while improving operating efficiency and advancing the U.S. clinical trials for the T2Resistance Panel and the T2Biothreat Panel. We strengthened our balance sheet during and subsequent to the end of the second quarter, allowing us to achieve our near-term milestones and keeping us well positioned to drive sustainable, long-term growth.”
