COMPANY ANNOUNCEMENT - No. 13-2022 – Change in the Board of Directors - 30 May 2022
BIRKERØD, DENMARK - ViroGates A/S, a medical technology company developing blood tests for better triaging in hospitals to improve patient care and reduce healthcare costs, today announces that, as part of a renewal of the Board of Directors, Lars Kongsbak will step down as Chairman with immediate effect and that Patrik Dahlen, currently elected as Non-Executive Director, has been appointed by the Board to succeed Lars Kongsbak as Chairman of ViroGates’ Board.
Lars Kongsbak was appointed as Chairman of ViroGates’ Board in March 2015 and has chosen to stand down as Chairman so that he can focus on his growing responsibilities as CEO of Samplix A/S. Lars will continue to serve as a Non-Executive Director on ViroGates’ Board.
Lars Kongsbak says: “It has been a pleasure and an honour to serve as Chairman of ViroGates and I am very proud of the work we continue to do to develop and commercialize suPARnostic® as a valuable biomarker to make a difference in the hospital systems throughout Europe. My decision to step down has been difficult, but growing Samplix A/S is my primary duty and I look forward to continuing to work with ViroGates’ development as a non-executive member of the Board.”
Patrik Dahlen says: “I am honoured to join ViroGates’ board as a Chairman following my recent election at the Annual General Meeting in April of this year. I have been following the company for years and have been impressed with its progress and dedication to solving vital medical needs in the acute care sector. I look forward to working with the team to develop ViroGates even further.”

About suPAR and suPARnostic®
suPAR is a biomarker detected by ViroGates' suPARnostic® products. It is a protein found in the plasma. suPAR is considered a general risk status biomarker indicating inflammation and can indicate disease presence, severity, and progression across disease areas such as cardiovascular diseases, kidney diseases, type 2 diabetes, cancer, etc. Strong scientific evidence from more than 800 clinical trials and studies shows that the higher the level of suPAR, the worse the prognosis for the patient.
The suPARnostic® products can be used to support healthcare professionals in making clinical decisions on hospitalization or discharge of acute care patients. The increasing global demands on health systems and tightening healthcare budgets necessitate efficiency improvements and innovative hospital solutions. The use of suPAR in clinical routine in emergency departments can improve patient care and reduce healthcare costs by increasing the number of discharges by up to 34% and reducing the average hospital length of stay by up to 6% without affecting mortality. suPARnostic® TurbiLatex is currently available on Roche Diagnostics' cobas® instruments, Siemens Healthineers ADVIA® XPT and Atellica® instruments and the Abbott Labs Architect™ and Alinity™ instruments. ViroGates works with partners to develop solutions for other platforms.
Prospects about the future reflect ViroGates' current expectations for future events and results. The statements are by nature inherent in risks, uncertainties and other matters that are difficult to predict or out of control. The actual results may therefore differ from the expectations expressed.
