  • Strengthened balance sheet by converting $30.0 million of term loan debt with CRG Servicing LLC (“CRG”) in exchange for shares of T2 Biosystems equity, reducing both total debt and quarterly interest payments to CRG by approximately 80% percent from the balance as of May of 2023.
  • Extended multi-year capital equipment supplier agreement with Vizient, Inc., the largest member-driven health care performance improvement company in the U.S., through March 31, 2025.
  • Signed an international distribution agreement in Qatar to further expand commercialization in the Middle East.
  • Cash and cash equivalents totaled $6.2 million as of March 31, 2024.

Recent Pipeline and Clinical Highlights

  • Received FDA 510(k) clearance for the expanded T2Bacteria Panel to include the detection of Acinetobacter baumannii.
  • Advanced discussions with potential LDT partners to initiate commercialization the T2Lyme Panel in the third quarter of 2024 as a laboratory developed test (LDT).
  • Submitted a 510(k) premarket notification to the U.S. FDA to expand the use of the T2Candida Panel to include pediatric testing.

  • Real-world use of the T2Resistance Panel in the EU published in the Journal of Clinical Microbiology, demonstrated the T2Resistance Panel’s high sensitivity and specificity, reductions in the time to detect resistance by approximately 90% compared to standard methodology and positive impacts to clinical decisions for antimicrobial therapy.
  • New data presented at the ECCMID 2024 conference found improved patient outcomes with T2Candida compared to conventional blood culture testing and the ability for T2Bacteria to detect persistent S. aureus infections better than blood culture.

“We believe T2 Biosystems has reached an inflection point, having achieved double digit sepsis product sales growth in the first quarter, made significant advances across the product pipeline that we anticipate will drive further growth in 2024, and transformed the Company’s balance sheet to better support the continued advancement of our corporate priorities,” stated John Sperzel, Chairman and CEO of T2 Biosystems. “Looking ahead, we plan to launch T2Lyme Panel and file the FDA submission for the T2Resistance Panel during the third quarter of 2024.

First Quarter 2024 Financial Results
Sepsis product revenue for the first quarter of 2024 was $2.1 million, representing a 25% increase compared to the prior year period, led by T2Candida Panel sales and strong T2Resistance Panel sales internationally.

Research and development expenses were $3.7 million, a 17% decrease compared to the prior year period, driven by decreased BARDA contract activities. Selling, general and administrative expenses were $6.7 million, an 8% decrease compared to the prior year period driven by decreased headcount.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2024 was $13.5 million, $2.66 per share, compared to a net loss of $18.0 million, or $131.77 per share, in the prior year period.
