SAN LEANDRO, Calif., July 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nanomix Corporation (OTCQB: NNMX) (“Nanomix” or the “Company”), a leader in the development of mobile, affordable, point-of-care diagnostics, today announced that it has entered into a distribution agreement with Biotron Ltd. (“Biotron”), an Israeli medical diagnostics distributor. Biotron will market and distribute the Nanomix eLab® system in Israel including the Nanomix S1 Panel cartridge and future new product cartridges for the eLab system.
John Hardesky, Chief Commercial Officer, stated, “Israel is widely known for healthcare innovation and we are proud to partner with Biotron to jointly bring our solution into this important market. Improving sepsis patient outcomes is a global initiative and the Nanomix eLab® system provides timely, mobile and accurate diagnostic results to support the critical need of earlier patient diagnosis.”
Aviram Aziel, Managing Director of Biotron, commented, “Biotron is very excited to launch the eLab system in Israel. This is major step forward to help doctors and their patients have the fastest, accurate results to help in the fight against critical infections and sepsis.”
Sepsis is a recognized global health crisis. Early identification and treatment is a need and a challenge for healthcare professionals around the globe. For many reasons, sepsis can be difficult to identify and is frequently under-diagnosed in the earliest stages. It affects as many as 50 million people every year, leading to approximately 11 million deaths annually.
The Nanomix eLab® system is a mobile, hand-held immunoassay and chemistry diagnostic system designed for the needs of rapid point-of-care testing. The Nanomix eLab® system offers a variety of benefits, including results in minutes, lower cost, and portability, while providing accurate, quantitative results comparable in quality to those provided by central lab testing. Furthermore, the S1 Panel Cartridge was developed as an aid in rapidly diagnosing critical infections including sepsis. The panel provides quantitative test results for procalcitonin (PCT), C-reactive protein (CRP) and lactate (LAC) from a single venous whole blood or plasma sample type. The assay runs on the eLab Analyzer with results available in approximately 12 minutes from sample to answer, versus the current diagnostic solutions which can take hours to provide a test result. The S1 Panel assay has received the CE marking in Europe and has UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) registration.
