Bluejay Diagnostics shares down 31% after rising Thursday

Bluejay Diagnostics Inc. shares reversed course from Thursday’s gains, dropping 31% to $1.12 one day after saying the Food and Drug Administration has agreed to consider its plan to pursue a De Novo submission for its Symphony IL-6 test.

The stock ended Thursday’s session up 26%, and hit its 52-week low of 82 cents on March 8.

In written feedback to a January submission of a FDA pre-submission briefing package, the FDA said that Bluejay’s Symphony IL-6 test could be considered for the De Novo pathway.

Bluejay said it is continuing to advance the Symphony IL-6 test toward its anticipated marketing application with the FDA, expected by the end of 2022.

If a device is determined not to have a legally marketed class I or class II device upon which to base a determination of substantial equivalence and a device is considered to be of low to moderate risk, the FDA may make a determination to classify the product candidate as a De Novo application, rather than the more conventional 510(k) marketing application.
