The company said clinical services revenues and diagnostic testing volumes fell during the quarter due to the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The GenomeWeb Index rose more than 9 percent in May, following an 18 percent climb in April, a marked contrast to its negative performance in February and March.
