Market capitalisation


OpGen is primarily a lab diagnostic manufacturer focused on identifying and treating bacterial infections. It has the technology to detect pathogens and predict resistance. Through the dual platform offering of the AMR Gene Panel and Unyvero, it can provide diagnostic results in hours instead of days.

It currently takes days to test a patient sample to find out if they have an infection, what they are infected with and to which drugs that infection might be susceptible. This can lead to a delay in treatment or the wrong treatment being prescribed. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are over two million cases of drug-resistant bacterial infections every year.
