  • Four strategic distribution agreements with major global IVD companies achieved in 2022, including one announced in 4Q for GCAL

“Even in uncertain times, the global demand for diagnostics continues to be robust and for the fifth consecutive year Gentian delivers sales revenue growth above 20%. While the company is now free cash flow positive pre R&D, we will continue to invest in profitable growth. This to maximise the potential of our established products and the ones in market development, while also bringing new high-impact diagnostic tests to market,” says CEO Hilja Ibert of Gentian Diagnostics.

Gentian converts existing biomarkers to the most efficient automated, high-throughput analysers, which contributes to saving costs and protecting life. The company’s go-to-market strategy has been proven through successful and long-lasting partnerships with globally leading IVD companies such as Beckman Coulter and Roche through Bühlmann Laboratories.

“In 2022 we entered into four partnerships with leading IVD companies, including a contract for GCAL with Siemens Healthineers which has been off to a good start. In Q4, we added another undisclosed partner for international roll-out of this product. In 2023, we plan for continued sales growth enabled by additional proof of clinical evidence, endorsements from key opinion leaders, regulatory approvals and development of existing and new partnerships,” says Ms Ibert.
