2019 Fourth Quarter and Full-Year Financial Highlights

  • Commercially contracted instruments were 137 in the fourth quarter and 304 for full-year 2019

Jack Phillips, incoming Chief Executive Officer of Accelerate Diagnostics, Inc, commented, “We are pleased with our overall placement trajectory after doubling our contracted Phenos in 2019 and we remain confident in our outlook for continued strong adoption in 2020. However, our revenue in the fourth quarter fell short of our expectations due to continued delays of multi-site contracted customers going clinically live and beginning to generate consumable revenue. A top near-term priority is successfully implementing our now-reengineered go-live process and ensuring that our customers are able to bring this life-saving technology to their patients as quickly as possible upon adoption of the Pheno.”
