Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.

As previously reported by Biocept, Inc. (the “Company”) in its Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 12, 2022, Mayer Hoffman McCann P.C. (“MHM”), the former independent registered public accounting firm of the Company, declined to stand for re-appointment as the independent registered public accounting firm of the Company. MHM remained the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm until May 24, 2022.

On June 24, 2022, the Company engaged RSM US LLP (“RSM”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, effective immediately. The engagement of RSM was approved by the Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors.

During the Company’s two most recent fiscal years and the subsequent interim period preceding the engagement of RSM, neither the Company nor anyone on its behalf consulted with RSM with respect to: (i) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company’s consolidated financial statements, and no written or oral advice of RSM was provided to the Company that was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to the accounting, auditing, or financial reporting issue; or (ii) any matter that was either the subject of a “disagreement” (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions related thereto), or any “reportable event” (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).
