Cell Phones Are Now Personal Diagnostic Tools That Can Monitor Fertility, Pathogens, AIDS, Drugs, and Allergens
Date:12/15/2010

WASHINGTON, HAARLEM, Netherlands, SHENZHEN, China and HUIZHOU, China, Dec. 15, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- GENTAG, Inc. and its partners have just demonstrated a new disposable wireless diagnostic test platform for consumer cell phones. The technology, based on immunoassays, can test for pregnancy, fertility, pathogens, AIDS, drugs, allergens and even certain types of cancers.

"This technology breakthrough will enable much more rapid diagnoses for diseases and make diagnostics more accessible and affordable for more people worldwide," announced Dr. John Peeters, the founder of GENTAG.

GENTAG started with well-established immunoassay technology and made it wireless and compatible with Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, which enables consumers to use their cell phones as diagnostic tools to instantly test for pathogens, allergens or common medical conditions at any time, no matter where they are.

This new technology is expected to broadly impact major women's health markets, including ovulation, fertility, and PROM (labor); the men's health market, including a urine-based prostate cancer test (PCADM-1); and tests for common food allergens.

NFC is currently being integrated into all major cell phone brands, and GENTAG is working with major OEMs worldwide to promote the uses of its disposable wireless sensor platform for consumer markets.  

The new wireless immunoassay technology is expected to rapidly impact the multi-billion dollar markets for OTC diagnostic tests, consumer markets, food safety markets, and homeland security.

For a demonstration of the technology or for information about manufacturing or licensing partnerships, please contact Dr. John Peeters at (240)-994-2236 or at john.peeters@gentag.com
