OraSure and its subsidiary DNA Genotek specialize in the lean production of home DNA spit tubes. OraSure extracts core genetic information from microbiome saliva samples and then provides discreet DNA diagnostic test tubes and kits for liquid biopsy, hepatitis, cancer, and HIV etc. In the meantime, OraSure and its subsidiary DNA Genotek serve as a quasi-monopoly with secure economic rent protection in the new biotech market for DNA spit tubes.

As there has been a substantial increase in international demand for cost-effective and affordable DNA tests over the past decade, OraSure gains much from its R&D-driven royalty revenue. As of April 2019, the small-cap stock OraSure trades at a P/E ratio of 16.6x near most long-term average stock market benchmarks. Further, the current stock market capitalization of OraSure is almost 3.4x times total sales and 2.2x times total book assets. From a fundamental perspective, OraSure enjoys juicy profit margins: the gross profit margin of 62.5% exceeds most stock market benchmarks, and the net profit margin hovers in the healthy range of 11%-15% in recent times. As its broad biotech patents and trademarks represent fundamental competitive moats and niches, OraSure continues to dominate in the new specialty market for DNA diagnostic test tubes.
