GAITHERSBURG, Md., Aug. 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As disclosed in OpGen, Inc.’s (NASDAQ: OPGN) (“OpGen” or “the Company”) July 13, 2020 press release, we have commenced marketing and promotion, on a non-exclusive basis, of certain products offered by Menarini Silicon Biosystems (MSB) to infectious disease healthcare providers and researchers.  As part of the co-promotion relationship, OpGen is marketing and promoting the CELLSEARCH system, CELLSEARCH CEC kit, and certain COVID-19 related products that are sold and distributed by MSB on a non-exclusive basis.  OpGen is authorized to market and promote such products in the United States, Canada, and Mexico under a strategic co-promotion agreement entered into by OpGen and MSB.  As described in our tweet on August 7, 2020, the COVID-19 related products include an IgG/IgM Rapid Test Cassette that is manufactured by Healgen and sold by MSB, which is an antibody test that provides results in as fast as 10 minutes.  As further described at http://www.siliconbiosystems.com/covid-19-tests, the IgG/IgM Rapid Test Cassette has been authorized by the FDA under an emergency use authorization for use by authorized laboratories.  The test has been authorized only for the presence of IgM and IgG antibodies against SARS-CoV-2, not for any other viruses or pathogens.  Under the terms of the co-promotion agreement, OpGen is entitled to certain payments based on MSB’s net sales from customers referred by OpGen for such products, including the IgG/IgM Rapid Test Cassette.  The parties expect to continue to expand the portfolio of COVID-19 products available as part of the non-exclusive co-promotion relationship.
