Shares of Victoria, British Columbia-based Immunoprecise climbed C$0.01 to C$0.81 in Friday’s Canadian trading. They gained US$0.01 to US$0.60 on the OTC Markets.

Absano is developing antibodies for therapeutic and diagnostic applications in the field of cancer, autoimmunity and infection. It’s working with TACPA BV, a clinical-stage company focusing on a Phase 1 anti-inflammatory antibody candidate directed at multiple diseases that was developed using ModiQuest's antibody technologies.

In addition, ImmunoPrecise said Debby Kruijsen is the new general manager of ModiQuest Research. In 2012, she joined ModiQuest Research as a scientist supervising hybridoma antibody discovery projects. A year later, she became responsible for contract research projects.

In February, ImmunoPrecise announced that its common shares were now eligible for electronic clearing and settlement through the Depository Trust Co in the US.
