Empower Clinics Subsidiary MediSure Submits Health Canada Application For Its Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Tests
That took the gains made by the stock to as much as 25% for the past week. In this context, it might be a good move from investors to consider taking a look at an announcement from the company last Friday.
Empower Clinics is an integrated healthcare firm and last Friday, the company made an announcement regarding its subsidiary company MediSure Canada. It was announced that the subsidiary had sent in an application to Health Canada for the purpose of getting approval for the manufacture and sale of MediSure Canada Lateral Flow Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Tests.
It was a major announcement from the company considering the fact that the Omicron variant has led to even more tests in the United States. It now remains to be seen if the Empower Clinics stock can continued to add to its gains in the coming days.
“We acquired MediSure precisely to support their plans to diversify their medical device portfolio. This Health Canada submission demonstrates how these goals are being achieved.” said Steven McAuley, Chairman and CEO of Empower. “As a Canadian company, we’re proud to provide made-in-Canada testing solutions as we navigate another challenging winter. We’re working closely with Health Canada, so we can begin distribution as soon as possible.”
