Shares in Genedrive PLC rose 15% on Wednesday after the company said that it has begun the process for regulatory approval for its MT-RNR1 ID Kit with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The molecular-diagnostics company said the MT-RNR1 assay is a rapid point-of-care test to screen infants in urgent care for a genetic variant that could cause life-long hearing loss when carriers are given certain antibiotics.

Shares in Genedrive at 0721 GMT were up 1.60 pence at 12.60 pence.
