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.

  • In addition to its minority investment, UPI will act as the exclusive sales agent for the SpotLight-19© technology and other future platform offerings for the government and education sectors in Canada.

Toronto, Ontario–(February 18, 2021) – Universal PropTech Inc. (TSXV: UPI) (“UPI” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has completed an investment in ISBRG Corp. (“ISBRG”) for a minority interest, and secured agency rights to their SpotLight-19© Technology.

ISBRG is a data analytics company which has developed the SpotLight technology platform designed to generate comprehensive health care data non-invasively within seconds at a nominal incremental cost per test. SpotLight-19© is non-invasive, and ISBRG is undertaking trials to determine efficacy in detecting Covid-19. In addition to its minority investment, UPI will act as the exclusive sales agent for the SpotLight-19© technology and other future platform offerings for the government and education sectors in Canada.

“We are proud and excited to be a strategic investor in ISBRG,” stated Chris Hazelton, President & CEO of Universal PropTech. “We have been committed to ensuring safe and healthy workspaces for our clients and facilitating the return of workers to workspaces in the face of the pandemic, and SpotLight-19© as a rapid, inexpensive and reusable testing platform to ensure safe work environments, could be a catalyst to opening global economies. Upon completion of trials and relevant governmental approvals, Universal PropTech expects that it will aggressively market SpotLight-19© products and supporting services to all governmental and education providers across Canada.”

“Our technology stems from the belief that technological innovation and strategic partnerships will restore economic growth globally in the midst of a pandemic that is challenging the speed, accuracy and effectiveness of existing tests” stated Duncan MacIntyre, Founder and CEO ISBRG.

ISBRG’s SpotLight-19© technology platform has proof of concept, and the funding now enables trials to determine the sensitivity and specificity of the device which will be compared to the accuracy of PCR tests in upcoming trials which are subject to authorization by Health Canada and REB review. Several published studies support ISBRG’s proof of concept and the application of light to detect viruses has been well documented in the past, see (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/29806030/).

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].

ISBRG headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario, developed its SpotLight-19© technology platform to monitor health – including a Covid-19 state of infection – using patent pending proprietary applications utilizing machine learning, optics and non-invasive interface design.

SpotLight-19© technology platform features:

  • 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
  • low-cost testing.

ISBRG’s SpotLight-19© technology is intended for use in large venues, such as:

He has assembled a team of medical doctors, Ai specialists, hardware designers, internationally recognized optics experts and an ISBRG Board of Advisors that excel in their respective fields.

  • former Global VP of AMGEN – Michael Kelly
  • former Canadian Astronaut and Author – Commander Chris Hadfield
  • former Director of Emera and Order of Canada appointee – Irene d’Entremont
  • former President of American Eagle Airlines – Peter Bowler
  • former Director General Global Operations CSIS – Allan MacDougall

Michael Kelly, former AMGEN Global VP, Thousand Oaks, California, states: “I became involved in ISBRG because of SpotLight-19©’s Ai and optical design innovations which, subject to confirmation in these trials, have the potential to significantly impact the global economic recovery more than any other technology available today”.
