Biomerica, Inc. (BMRA), a biomedical technology company, has declined by 4.83% in the premarket trading session. As a consequence, BMRA stock is changing hands at $5.91 at the time of this writing. On Friday, BMRA stock closed the day at $6.21 after increasing a massive 38% during the regular trading session. The increase is partly attributable to the Biomerica Supplier agreement with Walmart.

BMRA agreement with Walmart

On Friday, BMRA announced that it had entered into a General Merchandise Supplier Agreement with Walmart. The agreement was meant for the sale of the Company’s EZ Detect™ colorectal disease screening test in the Walmart retail system. The company said that it had shipped its first orders of the EZ Detect™ product to Walmart. Walmart would begin selling its products through its online sales this week. Biomerica also said that it was in the final phase of working with Walmart to stock and sell the EZ detect on its stores. The company revealed that it is in negotiations with some of the big distributors for the distribution of EZ detection in Asia and Europe. EZ detect is a colon disease screening test. It’s a simple at-home test or detection of occult blood in an individual’s stool. That could be a warning sign for colorectal diseases. Commenting on the development, Zack Irani, CEO of Biomerica, stated that the agreement for online sales of EZ Detect with Walmart could bring significant exposure to the product among the masses.
