Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Revenue was $4.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022, a 7% increase from $4.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021. This increase was driven by higher consumable revenue and service revenue, which was partially offset by overall economic slowness and inflationary challenges, particularly outside the U.S., that resulted in slightly lower instrument revenue.

Gross margin was 50% for the third quarter of 2022, as compared to 47% for the corresponding prior year period.

Total operating expenses were $19.2 million for the third quarter of 2022, representing a 12% reduction from the third quarter of 2021 and a 27% reduction from the second quarter of 2022.

Operating loss was $17.0 million for the third quarter of 2022, as compared to $19.9 million for the corresponding prior year period.

Net loss was $18.5 million for the third quarter of 2022, as compared to a net loss of $20.2 million for the corresponding prior year period.

Cash was $53.1 million as of September 30, 2022.

2022 Guidance

IsoPlexis now expects full year 2022 revenue to increase by 11%-15% over full year 2021.
