Nemaura expects an additional rolling monthly purchase order for the next 24 months of 15,000 transmitters and 2.1 million sensors, with an option to increase volumes based on customer response.

sugarBEAT, a CE mark approved Class IIb medical device, is a non-invasive and flexible continuous glucose monitor, providing actionable insights derived from real-time glucose measurements and daily glucose trend data.

Cocrystal Pulls Back On Stock Offering: Cocrystal, which jumped about 73% Tuesday due to the momentum imparted by an announcement regarding its COVID-19 program on Monday, is giving back some gains Wednesday.

The weakness comes on the back of the company entering into an underwriting agreement with H.C. Wainwright & Co, under which the latter has agreed to purchase 26 million shares of the company, at a price of $1.54 per share.

Cocrystal was last seen slipping 32.31% to $1.449.
