NanoString Provides Preliminary Financial and Operational Highlights for Second Quarter of 2023

- Record Q2 Revenue of Over $44 Million, 37% Year on Year Growth and Above Upper End of Q2 Guidance Range -

- New Orders for CosMx Instruments Grew Sequentially and Year on Year -

NanoString Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:NSTG), a leading provider of life science tools for discovery and translational research, today reported preliminary financial and operational highlights for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023.

“We are excited to report that our teams delivered strong preliminary revenue results for the second quarter, with preliminary results exceeding consensus estimates and the upper end of our guidance ranges,” said Brad Gray, President and CEO of NanoString. “Customers are focused on the potential for spatial analysis to advance science, and value the RNA-plex and protein capabilities our spatial platforms provide. During Q2, a competitor launched a campaign using a ruling in the Munich regional court to try to frighten customers to cancel orders for our CosMx Spatial Molecular Imager, even though the preliminary ruling was limited to Germany. Despite this challenge, through the strength of our technology and the hard work of our team, we fulfilled or retained approximately 97% of our cumulative CosMx instrument orders and captured orders for new CosMx instruments at a faster pace than in Q1.”

Preliminary Second Quarter Financial Results

  • Revenue is expected to be over $44 million, representing year on year growth of approximately 37%, above the upper end of our guidance range of $40 to $42 million and the consensus revenue estimate of $41 million
  • Spatial biology revenue is expected to be over $23 million, at approximately the midpoint of our guidance range of $23 to $24 million, and in line with the consensus revenue estimate of $23 million
  • nCounter revenue, inclusive of all service and other revenue, is expected to be approximately $21 million, above the upper end of our guidance range of $17 to $18 million and the consensus revenue estimate of $18 million

Second Quarter Highlights

Spatial Biology

  • Accelerated CosMx shipments during Q2, resulting in Q2 spatial biology instrument revenue growth of approximately 188% year-over-year
  • Successfully defended substantial CosMx instrument order book, fulfilling or retaining approximately 97% of cumulative orders as of June 30, 2023
  • Captured new orders for spatial biology instruments at a rate exceeding the Q1 pace, and retained more than $30 million in CosMx instrument order backlog as of June 30, 2023
  • Recorded spatial biology consumables revenue growth of approximately 44% year-over-year, and approximately $85,000 of annualized pull-through, driven by a steady GeoMx consumable pull-through over a larger installed base supplemented by growing shipments of CosMx consumables


  • Recorded nCounter consumables revenue growth of approximately 8% year-over-year and approximately $46,000 of annualized pull-through

These preliminary results are based on management’s initial analysis of operations for the quarter ended June 30, 2023 and are subject to further internal review and review by the company’s external auditors.


Management reiterated its full year revenue guidance of $175-185 million, representing annual revenue growth of 41% at the midpoint of the guidance range.
