Why ISpecimen Shares Continue To Move Higher Today

ISpecimen Inc ISPC is trading higher Tuesday on continued upward momentum after the company announced it has been contracted to support new advanced research on COVID-19 seeking insights on its transmissibility, variants, outcomes and testing validity among multiple population segments.

ISpecimen's work on COVID-19 began immediately after the outbreak last year when it began helping researchers monitor antibody development for possible guidance on immunity.

Over the last ten months, the company has partnered with multiple research and health care organizations on a range of diverse projects requiring a variety of COVID-19 samples.

"COVID-19 has claimed more than 5 million lives, and it will require a lot of additional research to control the pandemic and improve society’s ability to contend with future outbreaks of infectious diseases," said Christopher Ianelli, founder and CEO of ISpecimen.

"We embrace the challenge and are gratified that researchers are coming to us for the specific biospecimens they need from the types of patients they’re focusing on," Ianelli added.
