Abaxis, Inc. is a worldwide developer, manufacturer and marketer of portable blood analysis systems that are used in a broad range of medical specialties in human or veterinary patient care to provide clinicians with rapid blood constituent measurements. Our mission is to improve the efficiency of care delivery to and the quality of life of patients in the medical and veterinary markets. We provide leading edge technology, tools and services that support best medical practices, enabling physicians and veterinarians to respond to the health needs of their clients at the point of care while operating economical and profitable practices.
Our primary products are as follows:
• point-of-care diagnostic instruments and consumables used in the medical market; and
• point-of-care diagnostic instruments and consumables used in the veterinary market.
Abaxis is a California corporation and was incorporated in 1989. Since our company’s formation, our sales have increased in part due to the increased installed base of our blood chemistry analyzers and the expansion of test methods that we provide to the medical and veterinary markets. Additionally, over the past several years, we have expanded our diagnostic products and service offerings in the veterinary market. While we offer our direct customers a range of diagnostic products and services, our business and revenue model is focused on recurring revenue. Recurring revenues consist primarily of consumable revenue. We believe that the breadth of our product portfolio enables us to compete in the worldwide healthcare market.
Until March 2015, we provided veterinary reference laboratory diagnostic and consulting services for veterinarians through our Abaxis Veterinary Reference Laboratories (“AVRL”) division.

We have reclassified the assets and liabilities of AVRL as discontinued operations on our consolidated balance sheets for all periods presented and the results of operations of AVRL as discontinued operations on our consolidated statements of income for all periods presented.
