We’re talking about Lucid Diagnostics rather than Lucid Group (NASDAQ:LCID). However, Lucid Diagnostics is certainly a company with a product offering that many investors have been intrigued by. The company’s EsoCheck and EsoGuard products allow for the collection of cells in the esophagus without an endoscopy. Given the move the healthcare system is making toward technology-driven cost improvements, this company’s offering is one that many early investors have been bullish on.

That said, LUCD stock is not feeling the love in the markets today. Currently, this med tech company has seen its shares drop more than 18% at the time of writing. Let’s dive into what investors may want to know about this company’s IPO.
