SAN LEANDRO, Calif., Nov. 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nanomix Corporation (OTCQB: NNMX) (“Nanomix” or the “Company”), a leader in the development of mobile, affordable, point-of-care (POC) diagnostics, today announced that it has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with Woodley Equipment Company, Ltd. (“Woodley”), a global veterinary distributor. Under the agreement, Woodley will work with Nanomix to develop species specific ranges for the S1 critical infection panel and distribute the eLab system in the veterinary market for regions outside of the United States.
Thomas Schlumpberger, Chief Executive Officer of Nanomix, stated, “I am honored, to not only be working with Mike Wickham and Woodley again, but also for Mike’s equity investment which shows confidence in Nanomix and our technology. Woodley brings a significant product development expertise and structure that allows us to expand our efforts into the veterinary market earlier than planned. Woodley also has a clinical research division where the Nanomix POC solution will broaden their Clinical Research Organization offering. We are thrilled to add Mike’s proven experiences and history of success to our launch and development efforts of the Nanomix eLab® system for the veterinary market and beyond.”
Mike Wickham, Managing Director of Woodley, commented, “Woodley supplies equipment for all aspects of laboratory diagnostics in the veterinary market with a specialization in emergency and critical care devices. We are excited by the possibility to help develop the eLab to be suitable for animals and the impact that this can have worldwide in the healthcare provision for animals. Currently, sepsis in animals has no reliable markers which have a predictive indicator and certainly not at the POC. We are excited that a POC device can be developed to treat animals and Woodley is proud to be involved with Nanomix.”
Sepsis is one of the most important causes of morbidity and mortality in humans and it is also associated with high mortality rates in dogs and cats. Sepsis can develop if an animal is affected by an infection that is left untreated or undertreated. The infection may originate in many different areas contributing to the difficulty in diagnosis, for example, in the ears or even in the skin.
The Nanōmix eLab® system is a mobile, hand-held immunoassay and chemistry diagnostic system designed for the needs of rapid point-of-care testing. The Nanōmix 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.
