Third Quarter 2022 Results and Financial Highlights
- Our revenues during the three months ended
September 30, 2022were $0as compared to revenues of $50,901during the three-month period ended September 30, 2021, representing a decrease of $50,901, or 100%. During the three months ended September 30, 2022, no revenue generating activities were performed, nor were any grants provided to us compared to revenue in the same period of 2021 with $15,937of product sales and grants of $34,964. The decrease in revenue was due to the reduction in research services and business activities due to our relocation to Billerica, Massachusetts. This relocation, which was finalized in September 2022, resulted in our temporarily not having facilities that were sufficient to perform our research services and business activities. We expect to resume normal operations in the final quarter of 2022. In addition, there was no grant revenue during the three months ended September 30, 2022due primarily to 2022 being the final year of the award.
- Gross profit for the three months ended
September 30, 2022was $0, as compared to gross profit of $46,852for the three months ended September 30, 2021, due to the fact that we had no revenue in the three month period ended September 30, 2022.
- Research and development expenses increased by
$338,113, or 373%, from $90,658for the three months ended September 30, 2021to $428,771for the three months ended September 30, 2022. The increase in expenses was a result of our progressive return to research and development activities to levels of pre-COVID-19 pandemic. We expect these expenditures to increase over the final quarter of 2022 and beyond as we increase our research and development efforts to pre-pandemic levels.
- General and administrative expenses increased by
$128,785or 36%, from $360,944for the three months ended September 30, 2021compared to $489,729for the three months ended September 30, 2022.

About True Single Molecule Sequencing (tSMS) Technology
SeqLL’s collaborators are thoroughly committed to using only our tSMS platform in their scientific research due to its unique RNA and DNA sequencing and related services. Our true single molecule sequencing platform is NGS technology offers maximum flexibility and avoids many of the challenges common for standard NGS approaches. It that enables direct sequencing of millions of individual molecules not requiring PCR amplification at any stage of the process and a simple, economical sample prep protocols. Therefore, it captures a precise sample composition, without bias and loss of diversity and rare species. Our tSMS platform is ideally suited for RNA biomarker discovery and diagnostic assay developments, including challenging applications for the standard NGS platform, such as low quantity, difficult or degraded samples of cell-free DNA, FFPE-isolated nucleic acids, ancient DNA and forensic samples.
