Additionally, the money will support the commercialisation of BD1’s EXO-NET products, including RUO EXO-NET which is a research use only tool.

CEO Leearne Hinch said the funds raised would accelerate development, validation and planned commercial launch of these products as laboratory developed tests in the US with a laboratory partner in 2023.

The company’s shares resumed trade today, dropping 6.39 per cent to $1.69 at 2:51 pm AEST.
