2. Mai 2018

Utrecht, The Netherlands – Gilde Healthcare announced it has sold its shareholding in molecular diagnostics STAT-Dx (Barcelona, Spain) to QIAGEN N.V. (NYSE: QGEN; Frankfurt Prime Standard: QIA). QIAGEN has agreed to acquire all shares of STAT-Dx for $147 million in cash and additional payments of up to $44 million based on the achievement of regulatory and commercial milestones.

Gilde Healthcare acted as lead investor in the EUR 31 million growth financing round in 2016. The financing enabled STAT-Dx to accelerate the growth of the organization, build in-house manufacturing capabilities, expand its product pipeline, obtain European market approval and to prepare go-to-market activities.

Founded in 2010 in Barcelona, Spain, STAT-Dx focuses on the development, manufacturing and commercialization of “Closer to Care” diagnostic solutions in areas where fast and accurate diagnostic results are crucial, such as infectious diseases and critical care. On April 19th, Qiagen announced the European launch of QIAstat-Dx (formerly STAT-Dx DiagCORE), a next generation multiplex diagnostics platform for one-step, fully integrated molecular analysis of common syndromes. QIAstat-Dx is a versatile, easy-to-use platform that consolidates molecular and immunoassay techniques in a single device. The first two tests are extensive respiratory and gastrointestinal panels. Additional tests are in development.
