Agreement Enhances Precipio’s Product Reach to US Laboratories
NEW HAVEN, Conn., July 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Specialty cancer diagnostics company Precipio, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRPO), today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Fisher Healthcare, a part of Thermo Fisher Scientific to distribute its proprietary HemeScreen assays to its customers.
As one of the largest distributors of laboratory and diagnostic products nationwide, the Fisher Healthcare channel will enable Precipio to expand access to laboratories across the United States for Precipio’s HemeScreen suite of products. This partnership is a logical expansion of Precipio’s distribution strategy, the leveraging of industry leading sales channels rather than building its own sales force.
“Entering into an agreement with the Fisher Healthcare channel will expand access to customers and drive distribution and revenue for our HemeScreen product suite”, said Keith Meadors, Precipio’s Senior Vice President of Products. “Now more than ever, it is important for laboratories to have products that are accurate, decrease turnaround times and are cost-effective. The HemeScreen technology excels in these areas and will support the Fisher Healthcare channel in its commitment to serve its customers.”
Precipio has built a robust specialty cancer diagnostics platform that enables the rapid development of highly differentiated, proprietary clinical diagnostics products which provide superior clinical, operational, and economic benefits to laboratories worldwide. Precipio leverages its relationships with world-class academic institutions, coupled with its in-house clinical laboratory which enables its internal product development and testing engine to create and offer proprietary tests and reagents that enhance diagnostic accuracy, and improve patient care.
