Quidel Clocks More Than Three-Fold Jump In COVID-19 Products

  • Quidel Corp's QDEL Q1 sales more than doubled to $1 billion, beating the consensus of $890 million and meeting management expectations.
  • The company attributed the increase to significantly increased sales of rapid immunoassay products, specifically QuickVue At-Home OTC COVID-19 tests, Sofia Influenza + SARS, and Sofia Influenza tests.
  • "Our diverse suite of assays, increasing brand strength, and growing installed base of Sofia analyzers continue to propel our market expansion, broadening our post-pandemic opportunities," said CEO Douglas Bryant.
  • Rapid immunoassay product revenues increased by $655.1 million to $892.8 million from $237.7 million, primarily due to significant QuickVue At-Home OTC COVID-19 test sales.
  • Cardiometabolic immunoassay revenues declined 25% to $50.2 million due to the impact of the transition agreement with Beckman Coulter for Beckman's B-type Natriuretic Peptide assay business.
  • Molecular diagnostic solutions revenues declined 23 percent to $46.0 million from $60.3 million, while specialized diagnostics solutions increased 22 percent to $13.3 million from $10.9 million.
