Shares of Catenae Innovation PLC (LON: CTEA) surged 50.5% after signing a contract with ProMake Limited to provide data management services to the company exclusively.

ProMake is a global company specialising in material science and medical innovations and has unique technologies for collecting medical samples from patients.

Catenae share surged higher on the news as investors bought the stock based on the company’s leading position as a provider of COVID-19 vaccination passports, which are now mandatory in many countries.

The emergence of the virulent Delta variant of the coronavirus has forced many governments to require COVID-19 passports from passengers arriving from other nations to stop the spread of different variants of the coronavirus.

Catenae is now part of the consortium led by PreMake under the UK’s PHE Framework Agreement, which has been tasked with providing Research and Development Goods and Services under Lot 2 and Clinical Laboratory Diagnostic Testing Services under Lot 4.

The company will be tasked with securely capturing and processing patient and test data while controlling access to the data in a compliant manner and providing reporting services via dashboards, mobile apps, web and blockchain networks.

ProMake partnered with Catenae innovation to automate its entire supply chain and ensure that its Pre-Vent tubes, made of graphene and other nano-materials, are delivered and used by other firms in the PHE Framework Agreement.

ProMake has also partnered with Applied Graphene Materials to form its consortium.

Catenae Innovation shares have surged off a significant support level and are approaching a major resistance zone. Therefore, I would not open any new position until the price break above the resistance level or falls and retests the support level.
