BTIG Research analysts commented, "Neutral AXDX reported Q1 revenue of $1.75M, short of consensus’ $1.9M forecast. Revenue was down sequentially by 4%. Although we had expected a revenue stepdown given the typical cadence of placements-to- conversions, the magnitude of the decline was less than we expected. In Q1, the company added 75 commercially contracted placements vs. 133 in 4Q18; to clarify, commercial placements refer to customers that have agreed to install and run tests (may or may not be active users). The company still sees a 4-9 month lag before instruments become active.
