Recent Highlights

  • Drove operational efficiencies and headcount reductions through our Reduction in Force (RIF) resulting in a $4.3 million reduction in operating expenses compared to Q1 2022, representing a 14% reduction which includes $3.7 million of nonrecurring restructuring expense.

  • Revenue of $4.0 million for the second quarter 2022, representing a 7% decrease from the corresponding period of 2021

  • Trailing twelve months revenue of $18.7 million represents a 31% increase vs the prior year period

  • Sold 20 new instruments in the second quarter, bringing the installed base to 254 total instruments, with systems at 100% of the top 15 global pharma and 78% of U.S. Comprehensive Cancer Centers

  • Reprioritized product pipeline to focus on the effortlessly automated bulk proteomic CodePlex product suite, which runs on existing instrumentation, to launch in the first quarter of 2023.   

“Our team has continued to adapt to realize the large opportunities in cellular and proteomic analysis we have ahead of us. We continue to streamline and simplify our business to take advantage of this opportunity and produce more profitable growth.” said Sean Mackay, Co-founder and CEO of IsoPlexis. “We are excited for key initiatives involving continued commercial expansion with our land and expand strategies, consumable gross margin improvement, and the launch of our new CodePlex product. In particular, the CodePlex product suite with its ability to effortlessly automate proteomics for any lab represents a large, mainstream customer opportunity. Our team continues to have strong conviction in our products and growth prospects based on validation of the high need amongst customers for easier access to key cells and the proteome.”

Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Revenue was $4.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022, a 7% decrease from $4.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021. These results were primarily driven by the China lockdown due to the re-emergence of Covid-19, overall economic slowness and inflationary challenges in both the U.S. and Europe, and our own reorganization and RIF, which, while proving to be effective, took time to execute and process.

Gross margin was 52% for the second quarter of 2022, as compared to 53% for the corresponding prior year period.

Total operating expenses were $26.4 million for the second quarter of 2022, which included restructuring expenses of $3.7 million. Excluding the restructuring expenses of $3.7 million, non-GAAP adjusted operating expenses (representing operating expenses less restructuring expenses) of $22.8 million were $7.9 million or, 26% lower than the first quarter 2022 as we streamlined our commercial and operational structure to support sustainable growth.

Operating loss was $24.4 million for the second quarter of 2022, as compared to $18.4 million for the corresponding prior year period.

Net loss was $25.6 million for the second quarter of 2022, as compared to a net loss of $20.6 million for the corresponding prior year period.

Cash was $71.6 million as of June 30, 2022.

2022 Guidance

IsoPlexis now expects full year 2022 revenue to reflect at least a 20% increase over full year 2021, or $20.7 million.
