Why Is T2 Biosystems (TTOO) Stock Up 29% Today?

T2 Biosystems (NASDAQ:TTOO) stock is rising higher on Thursday after the company announced a new sale of instruments in Poland.

According to a press release, this sale covers a multi-year deal for its T2Dx Instruments and sepsis test panels. The company says the initial order includes seven T2Dx Instruments, which are valued at $450,000. There’s also an option for another nine of these devices to be bought.

“Our sepsis test revenue increased by 67% in Central Europe during the first quarter of 2023, compared to the prior year period, and we believe there is enormous potential to further expand the adoption of our sepsis products in Poland and throughout Europe.”
