The Company reported total revenue of $6.8 million for the first quarter of 2019 compared to revenue of $7.7 million in first quarter of 2018, a decrease of 10.8% or $0.8 million.

BioPharma services revenue totaled $4.0 million in the first quarter, compared to $3.7 million during the first quarter 2018, an increase quarter over quarter of 8.4%. BioPharma projects are dependent on the timing, size and duration of our contracts with pharmaceutical and biotech companies and clinical research organizations, and can fluctuate in comparable periods. During the first quarter we completed and delivered two larger projects offset by the start-up of multiple smaller contracts.  The BioPharma business had more than 200 clinical studies and trials it is supporting at the end of Q1 2019.   The Company’s book-to-bill ratio for Q1 2019 was 1.61 on $6.4 million of new contracts signed in the period.

​Clinical Services revenue decreased by approximately $1.0 million in the first quarter of 2019 compared to the same period in 2018, the result of a reduction in the clinical services sales team and hence, reduced test volume, as the Company shifted focus in its strategy.

The Company’s Discovery Services contributed $1.5 million in revenue for the first quarter of 2019 compared to $1.7 million in 2018 due to a decline in revenue from our India subsidiary which was sold in April 2018. This represents a decrease of approximately 8.8% or $0.15 million.

Gross profit margin was 32.2% or $2.2 million in Q1 2019, compared to 33.7% or $2.6 million in the same period of 2018, a decrease of 1.5 percentage points.  The lower gross profit is attributable primarily to lower Clinical Services revenue in the current period and a slight increase in lab supplies and shipping costs of $0.2 million, partially offset by an overall reduction of approximately $0.6 million in fixed cost of revenue.

The Company reduced research and development expenses by 33.3% or $0.23 million, general and administrative expenses by 37.1%, or $2.0 million, and sales and marketing by 30% or $0.48 million from the first quarter of 2018.
