Revenue was $223.7 million for the third quarter of 2021, compared to $137.4 million for the prior quarter and $4.7 million for the prior year. The increase over the prior quarter was made possible by growth in both the public and private sector.
Public Sector revenue was $129.5 million, compared to $105.0 million for the prior quarter. The increase over the prior quarter was driven by additional deliveries to DOD / HHS under the existing agreement.
Private Sector revenue was $94.2 million, compared to $32.4 million for the prior quarter. The increase over the prior quarter was driven by significant additions to the enterprise and provider customer base.
Disposable test cartridge revenue was $179.0 million for the third quarter of 2021, up 74% from the prior quarter.
Product gross margin was 60.2% for the third quarter of 2021, up from 59.9% in the prior quarter due to the increase in production partially offset by higher labor and material costs.
