Biodesix Closes Series E Financing

BOULDER, Colo., December 2, 2013-- Biodesix, Inc., a fully integrated molecular diagnostic company dedicated to personalizing medicine, today announced that the company closed an $8.3 million Series E preferred equity financing. New funds accounted for $4.3 million of the round and the remaining $4 million came from the conversion of a convertible note. Existing Biodesix shareholders provided all of the capital.

The investment will be used for ongoing development of the company’s technology platform and expansion of sales and marketing efforts to support Biodesix’ first product, VeriStrat®. VeriStrat is a serum protein test that helps physicians guide therapy for patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

“Biodesix is a growing company with a strong pipeline,” said David Brunel, Chief Executive Officer of Biodesix. “In securing this investment we are well positioned to effectively deliver game-changing diagnostics to guide physician decisions and improve patient outcomes.”
