that internal a in in of to key to that want out might products you about things relative the your to services. drivers right things or expectations seem be beat two I'm maybe one lot call there the mind, curious to if are talked direction. You moving and that for just With were

Brad Gray

and two, drivers the life the that to Prosigna primary on consumable one, point revenue. would of side think are the - beat I beat sciences I the revenue

of to reps would visibility to the increased at commercial new the our consumables the especially pullthrough our of came a quarter. consumables and sales, which sciences probably new continuing On drive our time great guide. little substantially the where and over side, based to point leader had effectiveness of of the I ahead in we life team, panel field course our

On at the X.X in million the to for Prosigna we came with lot about year. side, guided QX of $X million strong $X million nice and there. a to momentum

Doug Schenkel

placement right on that of said, proportion your type gave not what based you've any least I bars why at than than additional XX was on base number. quarter revenue placement provide also color what placements recognizing a instrument stronger That of was in you have the for think that, expecting believe you unless there's, SPRINT that you what stronger you that are reported That an placements, some remarks. so accounted that here? being we greater approximately if installed you I expected. quarter, arrow math placed that described So Can use is which number, a instruments case the in from and in XX my expected around us is XXX, if would to be we higher, ASPs bit the just I is around what on weren't said, prepared

Brad Gray

Doug. Hey, Yeah.

we your math some estimate infer your from which working - unit installed to little I you're know base think, commentary, is high. of always of round. that our XX I units a volume

Doug Schenkel

Okay. That's really helpful.

mathematical revenue clearly in last tremendous Maybe ultimately, making one sorry many on finally, use some that where will mode is lead one, opportunity there guess change answers when the And you there TAPs on helpful. XX for you. I placements sequencing average each launch leaps you of progress. and DSP those the that and into of announced DSP, have the back What's instrument and that the making the associated move is interest with end? you hope nextgen place of any in notable could with you DSPs in are you these Thank the

Brad Gray

Yes.

$XXXX we've think think and I average the typical $XX,XXX I is scale at that the samples is So biopharma the question, is samples the about done, speak of first $XXXX. order your XX about somewhere half company TAPs between for under an $XXX,XXX. program answer to The for price XX XX $XXX,XXX to and so the value academic or of at each at is a

is So between two those average. it's somewhere the

like recognition bookings we're that for will our to capacity our revenue technology take to we and lagging and the we're is they revenue Now, in that will we fact, prototypes small question, time limited many of answer of Doug, time To program, in that because in your it what available realize sense yes, CROs and access these why participants out see the to broadly TAP leading to a TAP second could number oversubscribed. will time instrument hope have on reason under we the five we're program and really market service that the lifting into convert early more platform. adopters that's our program continuing think both the that technology go companies existing the and biopharmaceutical customers and efforts over for access great even in to help represent do

digital - meaningful level the read out. in Finally, spatial up increase for on having question, we from having on based have third in profiling NGS the platform seen opened interest a your

something in moved an the only digital able out customer the that about both profiling market plus we it sequencing closed much lower that if plus to platforms XXXXXX into spatial that acquire a we into been be with system today system, opened customer for If had a would have to next would market convince system today there But like hurdle think we XXXXX have system. the you genomics. or opportunity entry another for $XXXXXX nCounter That XXX we the we would generation nCounter barrier to much market forward for up, doing can closed a nCounter, the a adoption. higher have having out there the had to begin spatial to read and customers out is

addition, And interesting single who in format is single and approaches samples well enjoyed science than take and the cell situations finding DSP lot secondary have more and research addressed, a we basic that to in enthusiastic have how as from science one we're customer that space. early about single funded but cell the droplet based adoption. technology see gene of is very is interesting In very about researchers a a same vendors non-spatial expression cell interacting actually to traditionally step are a who using thinking other science

so up going to nicely. far decision So to I DSP NGS looks off to would say pay it's the like open that

quarter. nice Thanks on the the for and congrats questions

wondering and contemplated generate you partnerships already XXXX just do revenue new much expect that was how in TAP will in these your incremental CRO was prior I First, guidance.

Tom Bailey

revenue TAP the any recognizing into actually the be statement won't out income programs. We of

of like, why what So the - launch for product service associated we've differences revenue. we it's to and cash either the or we an under traditional revenue service until we the there's programs and that these we our complexities need under It's guidance book that instrument provide get we - have we wait we some are - we for next between revenue into receive book won't with you'd TAP that contemplated offline, is there can And can and that if Catherine as that what with all there into but not - part the based to to DSP reasons given. year book on when the under deliver revenue of that are

Brad Gray

Yeah.

that agreements, for think two question is, that for build of collaboration what collaborations themselves. appropriate. Tom was being and The I a us. the signing was ways in two an drive those Catherine, AACR services TAP Let under as me those five quite the we make there's to of going deliver to over event revenue this may agreements let things time recognize to - were for we of for agreement, the over guidance signing year. parse services on said, would some balance they that said, the time, TAP been non-revenue have on services these opportunity This contemplated really announcement your That knowing our me CRO One we've working some around the it timeframe.

in So to based it's guidance.

Catherine Schulte

you update to launch partner, in partner or your a B needed? and using any there? a launch interest to on plan use prior plans a something DSP, add partner is own if And on up your to were terms with you would set then a commercialization potentially of And then on it and if that

Brad Gray

imagination very and program So DSP exciting interest partners. it is captured has of a the and channel

see We are are and kind cell we opportunity of to single researchers market, market channel to in being that we core building is of there we discussions have entertaining receiving markets our to partnership interest the product inbound early to are force groups platform. the a into diagnostics we expand traditional product and expand need that win-win I believe sales those pathology servicing positioned launch translational be post That The are and of the looking the one said, channel from the the that sequencing a being later, will in groups genomic place. and we're next in generation is well arrangements think interested interested That adopters don't launch. with feel researchers successful and later companion types if the on who servicing who could put launch.

to or of we're don't will be of but going at these whether these think continue it So enter we specific Catherine. channel won't we collaborations opportunities, about time, I can this or timing to one evaluate the

Catherine Schulte

then do your curious for drive neurology a for much how appreciate commentary and drawing on last CBC will one demand non-oncology interest.
