Pacific Edge Reports Continued Growth in FY19

Cancer diagnostics company, Pacific Edge (NZX: PEB) has today released its audited financial results for the year ended 31 March 2019, reporting accelerating demand from new and existing customers in the second half of the financial year, particularly from New Zealand customers in the final quarter of the year.

Pacific Edge’s Cxbladder tests continue to provide a compelling value proposition for healthcare providers, patients and clinicians alike. Test adoption, coverage and reimbursement is expected to grow in FY20 as clinical evidence continues to accumulate in favour of Cxbladder.

CEO of Pacific Edge, David Darling, said: “Many of the foundations for commercial success have now been completed. We have a proven business model and a growing list of compelling clinical evidence published in toptier international journals. This published evidence is the key ingredient in driving widespread reimbursement and adoption of Cxbladder with customers globally.

“Adoption of Cxbladder is growing and commercial sales are increasing. We remain focused on further accelerating the adoption of Cxbladder by large healthcare organisations in New Zealand and internationally. Gaining inclusion in the Local Coverage Determination remains a priority.”
