Universal PropTech $UPI Provides Update on SpotLight-19(C) – Designed to Detect COVID-19 in Under 20 Seconds and at a Cost of Approximately $1 Per Test $AAT.ca $LPS.ca $EGT.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:48 AM on Tuesday, March 9th, 2021
  • ISBRG Corp (“ISBRG“) has posted a number of updates on their website (www.isbrgcorp.com) regarding their SpotLight-19© Technology
  • Updated the expected COVID-19 detection time to under 20 seconds, at an approximate cost of $1 per COVID-19 test, an expanded list of solutions, and adding an additional advisor to the Advisory Board.

Toronto, Ontario–(March 9, 2021) –  Universal PropTech Inc. (TSXV:UPI) (FSE:8LH) (“UPI” or the “Company“) is pleased to announced that ISBRG Corp (“ISBRG“) has posted a number of updates on their website (www.isbrgcorp.com) regarding their SpotLight-19© Technology including updating the expected COVID-19 detection time to under 20 seconds, at an approximate cost of $1 per COVID-19 test, an expanded list of solutions, and adding an additional advisor to the Advisory Board.

ISBRG’s SpotLight-19© technology leverages advancements in optics and artificial intelligence to define a state of COVID-19 infection.

SpotLight-19© (which upon testing to establish specificity and sensitivity ISBRG intends to submit for regulatory approval) is designed to screen for a unique infectious state – within 20 seconds of scanning a fingertip with light. ISBRG is undertaking trials to determine SpotLight-19©’s efficacy in detecting COVID-19, and if proven effective, will be subject to further regulatory approvals before it would be commercially available.

The speed and estimated cost of the test (approximately one dollar), combined with the non-invasive nature of light (no body fluid of any kind is required), is intended to accommodate the testing of large numbers of people without the inconvenient delays and environmental damage associated with current chemical reagent-based tests.

Below is an image of a finger over the beam of light from ISBRG Corp’s SpotLight-19 device.

We are very excited that ISBRG has begun to inform the world of the high expectations for SpotLight-19,” commented Chris Hazelton, President and CEO of UPI. “Pending further testing and submission for regulatory approval, a 20-second COVID-19 test will open the global economy, and at an approximate cost of $1 per test, will enable governments around the world to afford and adopt rapid testing for COVID-19. We look forward to the results of ISBRG’s clinical trials and we have high hopes for its success. Once shown to be effective in testing for COVID-19, we expect other applications to follow.”

The global COVID-19 diagnostics market size is estimated at USD$84.4 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.1% from 2021 to 2027[1].

In addition, the ISBRG website adds that ISBRG’s technology is designed for other applications, including for viral infection – screening technology to detect unique infections, including COVID-19; drug impairment – defining a unique state of impairment (such as THC); athletic fitness – defining a state of optimal fitness performance; nutritional health – defining the impact of dietary and / or supplement choices; healthy aging – defining the impact of gradual lifestyle changes and aging; and adolescent health – defining the impact of early stage lifestyle, exercise and nutrition decisions.

VIDEO – Universal PropTech $UPI Secures Investment and Rights To Finger Scan Test Designed To Detect COVID-19 In Less Than A Minute $AAT.ca $LPS.ca $EGT.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 6:04 PM on Thursday, February 18th, 2021

As the name implies “PropTech” is a combination of two words and stands for “property technology.”  As simple as that is, the implementation and importance of PropTech is anything but, which is why many companies are trying to capitalize on the rapidly growing paradigm shift, while Universal PropTech (UPI:TSXV) is actually delivering healthy building solutions developers, owners and operators across Canada. 

More than just lip service, UPI clients include:

· Federal Government facilities for over 40 years 

· Manulife 

· Brookfield 

· Billy Bishop Airport 

· University of Toronto 

· …. and many more 

As a result, UPI has generated $35,000,000+ in revenue over the past 3 year – a number most small cap companies would be very happy with.  But newly appointed Chief Growth Officer, Frank Carnevale sees a much bigger opportunity by winning exclusive licenses and partnerships with providers of great products that can significantly grow company revenues … and he has delivered pretty strongly against this mission statement in 2021. 

BUT TODAY HE TOOK A GIANT LEAP FORWARD 

The press release headline says it all:

Universal PropTech Inc. Invests in and Secures defined Agency Rights for ISBRG Corp.’s SpotLight-19(C) Technology Designed to Detect Covid-19 Non-Invasively in Under One Minute  

In short, this technology takes a non-invasive scan of a person’s finger with a harmless beam of light designed to provide confirmation of Covid-19 infection in less than 1 minute.  

How significant is this announcement and what does it mean to the Company’s growth? 

Watch our interview with CGO Carnevale to learn all about it.
