  • TearLabs - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Jun 6, 2013 5:58 PM | about stocks: TEAR

    The Chart of the Day is Tearlab (NASDAQ:TEAR). The stock has soared and still has 96% Barchart technical buy signals as well as a Trend Spotter buy signal. I found the stock by sorting today's New High List by frequency and using the flipchart function.

    The company is an ophthalmic device company developing and commercializing novel, lab-on-a-chip technologies that enable eye care practitioners to test for highly sensitive and specific biomarkers in tears at the point-of-care. They are commercializing a proprietary in vitro diagnostic tear testing platform, the TearLabTM Osmolarity System, which is capable of accurately and rapidly measuring biomarkers in tears at the point-of-care. The TearLabTM System requires nanoliters of tears for testing, potentially reducing collection time and simplifying the tear collection process.
