BioMark Diagnostics Expands Research Development in Quebec

Vancouver, British Columbia – (August 13th, 2020) – BioMark Diagnostics Inc. (“BioMark”) (CSE: BUX) (FSE: 20B) (OTCMKTS: BMKDF), a developer of proprietary, non-invasive, and accurate diagnostic solutions announced today that the Company is moving parts of its lung cancer research and development operations to LE CAMP,  an incubator-accelerator dedicated to tech businesses growth and mentorship.

 

“This move highlights BioMark’s focus on diagnostic development and technological innovation within the healthcare sector,” said Rashid Bux, Chief Executive Officer of BioMark Diagnostics Inc  “The renowned LE CAMP site  offers a diversity of services adapted to similarly sized development stage companies and offers a significant opportunity to form strategic relationships with other industry leaders.  Going forward we intend to invest in human capital and expand our infrastructure in Quebec in order to accelerate the commercialization of our early lung cancer detection platform with IUCPQ (l’Institut universitaire de cardiologie et de pneumologie de Québec) and other excellent strategic partners located across the province. Our institutions have been engaged in clinical studies that have led to very exciting results for potential lung cancer screening.”

 

BioMark’s research and development is based on the science of metabolomics and leverages Artificial intelligence (AI) systems that make advances in omics and molecular technologies, such as liquid biopsy, faster and more accurate. The Company focuses on the pivotal role that metabolomics plays in early cancer detection with an aim to improve patient treatment outcome. Metabolomics gives you a precise chemical read out on a person’s state of health since it involves the rapid, high throughput characterization of the small molecule metabolites found in an organism.  Additionally, BioMark is targeting a Covid-19 screening, which is focused on fundamentally changing how testing will be done on a global basis.

BioMark’s Affiliated Company, Bio-Stream Diagnostics Inc. Announces Partnership with Qatar University ML Team for Development of COVID-19 Testing

The Company will leverage Raman spectroscopy and Machine Learning as part of its diagnostics

 

Vancouver, British Columbia – (July 21, 2020) – BioMark Diagnostics Inc. (“BioMark”) (CSE: BUX) (FSE: 20B) (OTCMKTS: BMKDF) announced today that its affiliated company, Bio-Stream Diagnostics Inc.,  will be working with University of Qatar’s Dr. Somaya Al-Maadeed in the development of its novel COVID-19-detection method, leveraging new generation Raman spectroscopy and the power of machine learning. Raman spectroscopy is a spectroscopic technique typically used to determine vibrational modes of molecules, although rotational and other low-frequency modes of systems may also be observed. Raman spectroscopy is commonly used in chemistry to provide a structural fingerprint by which molecules can be identified.

 

Professor Al- Maadeed heads the Computer Science and Engineering Department at Qatar University with research interests in Pattern Recognition, Image and Signal Processing, AI, Bio-Metrics, Character Recognition, Writer Identification, and Digital Library. Prof Al-Maadeed is a recent recipient of a grant from Qatar University’s Predicting Risk Early in COVID-19 -The PERIL Study which fits very well with Bio- Stream’s research and future commercialization objectives.

 

“We are delighted to have Professor Al- Maadeed and her dedicated group from Qatar University to be part of our research team with a special focus on the use of ML in rapid COVID -19 diagnosis,” said Mr. Rashid A. Bux, President & CEO of BioMark Diagnostics, Inc.  “The additional ML resources and talent that both Professor Al-Maadeed and Qatar University provide will complement our already strong ML group. This collaboration demonstrates our global intent to partner with leading institutions and organizations that are seeking ways to bringing in rapid, effective and economical COVID -19 screening solutions to market.”
