The company added that its strategic agreement with bioMerieux gives its worldwide exclusive rights to Quanterix’s Simoa technology in clinical laboratories and for industrial applications.

Under the agreement, Quanterix is eligible to receive upfront and milestone payments as well as royalties on future sales. The agreement calls for bioMerieux to take an additional equity stake, contingent upon the achievement of the agreement’s milestones.
