TearLab (NASDAQ: TEAR) shares are up 84% mid-day following news that the company’s commercial version of its TearLab Discovery™ System has met all the applicable provisions of In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices Directive 98/79 EC required for CE Marking. Regulatory clearance enables the company the ability to market in the European Union and European Free Trade Association member countries and expands regulatory clearance beyond the previously-cleared discovery device to include the first commercial test card. The company is expected to use this clearance to build a clinical data package in support of a 510(k) submission to the FDA, which is expected in the second half of 2017. “The CE mark for the TearLab Discovery(TM) platform represents a breakthrough in ophthalmic diagnostic technology and will help usher in a new era in eye care that leverages the power of molecular diagnostics at the point of care, which has long been standard of care in other medical specialties to both diagnose diseases and guide treatment,” TearLab CEO Seph Jensen stated in the news release.
