* The Swoop total installed base consists of three components: Commercial system installations (which make up total revenue), grant fulfillment installations, and research unit installations. The Swoop total installed base (or total installed units) is the number of Swoop devices deployed to hospitals, other healthcare providers, and research institutions. We view the total installed base as a key metric of the growth of our business and is measured from period over period.

2022 Financial Guidance

  • Management expects revenue for the full year 2022 to be $10 to $12 million.
  • Management expects 50 to 60 commercial units installed in 2022.
