Genetic Analysis AS: Publication of Q1 report January – March 2024

OSLO, NORWAY – May 29, 2024: Today, Microbiome DX company Genetic Analysis AS (“GA” or the “Company”) hereby publishes the interim report for the period January 1 – March 31, 2024. The interim report is available as an attached file to this release and on the Company’s website. Below is a summary of the report.

Ronny Hermansen, CEO of Genetic Analysis, comments:
“During Q1 2024, GA has continued to onboard new laboratory customers by implementing the GA-map® assay on their instrument. A key objective for GA is technology implementation in laboratories since this generates recurring reagent kit sales and the establishment of key account customer relationships. GA has established a new important customer in the German market and preparations are ongoing to install the GA-map® assay in yet another German laboratory during May. Both customers will strengthen GA’s position in this strategically important territory. This further builds on a growing and international install base of the GA-map® assays at laboratory customers with the prospect to offer new add-on GA biomarker assays as they are launched.”
