Outset Medical Inc. Common Stock (NASDAQ: OM)
On May 5, 2022, the Company disclosed negative results for 1Q2022, which, among other things, analysts attributed to the untested nature of Tablo, its flagship product which is a dialysis machine that purifies tap water and then artificially purifies and removes toxins from the blood of patients suffering from kidney failure.
