Fluidigm Corporation (NASDAQ:FLDM) today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012.
Product revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $15.4 million, an increase of 25% from $12.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Product margin was 72% in the fourth quarter of 2012, up from 67% in the fourth quarter of 2011 and in-line with 72% in the third quarter of 2012. Total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $15.7 million, an increase of 21% from $13.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $3.6 million, compared to a net loss of $3.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $2.1 million, compared with $1.9 million non-GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of 2011 (see accompanying table for reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP measures).
For the full year, product revenue increased by 27% to $51.5 million, compared to $40.6 million in 2011. Total revenue increased for the full year by 22% to $52.3 million, compared to $42.9 million in 2011. Full year net loss was $19.0 million compared to a net loss of $22.5 million in 2011.

“In the quarter, we experienced significant momentum in the single-cell genomics market. The availability of the C 1™ Single-Cell Auto Prep System is catalyzing new areas of biological exploration by simplifying the handling and sample preparation of individual cells — a major roadblock to routine single-cell analysis. Since the C 1 launch through year end, we sold 36 C 1 systems and expect interest to continue to build in 2013 as we expand our menu of single-cell applications. In addition, approximately 60% of our BioMark™ HD system sales in the quarter were motivated by single-cell research,” said Gajus Worthington, Fluidigm President and Chief Executive Officer.“We are also seeing healthy demand from our production genomics customers who utilize our technology for high-throughput repeat testing applications, both in the human and agricultural genomics markets. Analytical systems (BioMark HD and EP1™) sales rebounded from the previous quarter and grew approximately 50% sequentially, driven by single-cell applications. Furthermore, Access Array™ system placements grew sequentially, driven by clinical laboratory applications such as HLA typing,” continued Worthington.
