Secures and Consolidates Unrestricted Rights for Simoa Technology in
Diagnostics Market

Quanterix
Corporation
(NASDAQ:QTRX), a company digitizing biomarker analysis
with the goal of advancing the science of precision health, today
announced the consolidation of its licensing position and
reestablishment of control of its intellectual property in the in
vitro
diagnostics (IVD) field. The termination of the license
agreement by bioMérieux reinstates to Quanterix all rights and
privileges associated with its Simoa technology.

"While we have benefited from our six-year strategic relationship with
bioMérieux for commercializing Simoa into IVD markets, this development
unlocks our long-term value creation opportunity in the estimated $30B
IVD market," said Kevin Hrusovsky, Chief Executive Officer, President
and Chairman of Quanterix. "Over the last several years we have built a
formidable business and momentum in research use only (RUO) markets
validating our technology's disruptive potential in neurology, oncology,
infectious disease, inflammation and immune disorders, while
bioMérieux's investments have been integral in advancing the Simoa
technology in IVD. Quanterix now has strategic optionality to capitalize
on a broad range of IVD markets and opportunities beyond bioMérieux's
primary focus of infectious disease and immunology. We look forward to
continuing our close collaboration with bioMérieux as it remains one of
our strongest customers for Simoa."
