COVID Testing Was Not Developed for a Pandemic

The current COVID testing system is broken, and the problem is extending the pandemic. Most early and asymptomatic infections go undetected due to ineffective rapid tests and barriers to more accurate lab tests. These hidden infections continuously spread the virus and are preventing a recovery. More than 50 percent of current rapid test results are incorrect.

Experts agree that fast, accurate and portable self-tests, combined with new vaccines, are needed to slow the pandemic. There is currently no test on the market with the combined qualities of both high accuracy and immediate access to testing at home, at work or on the go.

But the technology for next-generation diagnostics exists. It is based on electronic nanosensors, and it is in the final stages of development with world-renowned virologists at Purdue University. Soon, anyone, anywhere, can test themselves or their customers, with lab-quality results on a smartphone in minutes.

INVESTMENT OVERVIEW

Purdue University and IdentifySensors Biologics have partnered to create Check4-COVID™: a highly accurate, over-the-counter home test intended to immediately detect COVID-19 RNA in early and asymptomatic infections. The test uses newly developed nanosensors, saliva and a smartphone to instantly pinpoint infections that current home tests miss more than 50 percent of the time.

The reusable test reader is intended to cost $130. Each COVID test cartridge is intended to cost less than $25. Both are intended to be released to the public with FDA approval this year. This patented and patent-pending technology can be easily modified to detect influenza, HIV/AIDS, lyme disease, and other ailments—offering investors long-term value past the pandemic. 

MORE THAN ANOTHER COVID TEST

Early and asymptomatic infections play the single largest role in the spread of the pandemic. CDC reseaerch shows that long waits and false results are allowing the virus to speead at record speeds. Check4-COVID™ is intended to be the solution. It is intended to be an instant, affordable self-test for smartphones that catches spreadable infections other tests miss. It is intended to be used entirely at home, at work or on the go without a lab or a prescription. This test, along with new vaccines, is intended to be the tipping point that finally curbs the pandemic.

Help get this test to market and support the COVID self-test that detects infections most home tests miss.

→ A GLOBAL PROBLEM ←

New CDC research found that people who don't show COVID symptoms may be responsible for 59 percent of transmissions. This includes 35 percent who are presymptomatic and 24 percent who never develop symptoms at all. Check4-COVID is intended to catch these infections instantly and at home or on the go, fulfilling a significant gap in manging the pandemic.

 

→ ANSWERING A GLOBAL NEED←

Antigen test results are wrong most of the time. PCR tests require a doctor, a lab and long wait times for results. A highly accurate, affordable home test that instantly catches early and asymptomatic infections is the breakthrough that will finally slow the pandemic. There is currently no home test that is both accurate enough and accesible enough to sow the spread. Check4-COVID™ uses all-new technology intended to not only slow viral transmission; it is intended to set new standards in over-the-counter home diagnostics for a variety of pathogens. It is intended that consumers will soon have a testing laboratory in their medicine cabinet, forever changing the need for clinical diagnostics.

FUTURE-READY TECHNOLOGY

Check4-COVID™ is inteneded to meet an immediate public need, but our technology has the capability to go beyond COVID-19 testing to provide rapid results among a wide range of pathogens. Our focus for the near future include:

THE GOLD STANDARD IN ACCURACY

Most home tests produce a high percentage of false positives and false negatives. With the help of infectious disease specialists at Purdue University, we’ve designed Check4-COVID™ to meet the gold-standard in hospital-grade molecular testing that is taken entirely at home without a prescription and long wait times.

Why Do Current COVID Tests Give False Results?

The accuracy of current tests depends on:

A good sample or nasal swab that is well preserved and transported to a lab without contamination. Current home tests rely on untrained users.

Amplification of the virus. Current chemical tests can’t detect COVID-19 without amplification. In many cases, samples have insufficient virus material, requiring the test to multiply the virus millions of times.

Preparing the sample. Once a sample safely reaches a laboratory, it is chemically treated. If the wrong reagents are used, or if they have deteriorated, this offers yet another opportunity for error.

What Makes Check4-COVID™ Different from Current Tests?

Check4-COVID™ accurately detects COVID-19 through newly developed nanosensors, without the need for a lab, amplification or chemical reactions. This means:

No need to transport a clean sample to a lab and risk contamination.

No amplification of the virus is needed.

No need to prepare the sample in a lab for machine testing.

Pandemic Questions

22. How will this test help curb the pandemic?
The majority of COVID transmissions are spread by asymptomatic and early infections. PCR tests can take days for the results, and rapid home tests are incorrect more than 50 percent of the time. Check4-COVID is intended to provide immediate results with the accuracy of a PCR lab test. It is the best of both tests. Experts agree that vaccines and the combination of instant and accurate testing holds the key to curbing the pandemic.  

23. How can businesses benefit from this test?
Customers and employees could be allowed into facilities more readily with more frequent testing. Offices, manufacturing facilities, and restaurants, for example, could require self-tests of their employees. Sports facilities, airlines, and concert halls, for example, could require fans to display their self-test results on their smartphones before entering.

24. How will the test benefit hospitals, health care facilities, and nursing homes?
The self-tests are intended to be fast, accurate and affordable. Frontline workers and nursing-home employees, for example, could test themselves, and their patients daily, and isolate positive cases. Slowing the spread of the virus can help hospitals manage the best use of their facilities.

Investment Questions

25. Why did you use Regulation A+ and not venture capital or other types of funding?
Regulation A+ opens investment opportunities to anyone, regardless of their wealth or income. IdentifySensors biologics wanted to offer this opportunity to everyone interested in this exciting project. IdentifySensors Biologics is particularly well-suited for Regulation A+ because of the welcoming atmosphere the company provides.

26. What happens now that I’ve made an investment?
IdentifySensors Biologics will communicate news regularly. Our first messages will be about processing your investment payment and issuing your shares. Beyond that, we will notify you regularly about company milestones. As a Regulation A+ company, we are required to make annual and semi-annual filings with the SEC, all of which will be available on the SEC’s EDGAR filing system. The filings include:

  • Annual filings on Form 1-K, which are due each year and include audited financial statements for the previous fiscal year.
  • Semi-annual filings on Form 1-SA, which will include unaudited financial statements for the previous six months.
  • Form 1-U will announce important company events, such as leadership changes, a change in auditors, or certain types of capital-raising.

 

27. Can I invest if I am outside of the United States?
Yes. Investors around the world are welcome to invest. However, certain country restrictions might apply. Investors should consult their legal advisers about their ability to invest. Investors in Canada are prevented from investing in Regulation A+ by Canadian securities regulations.

28. How do I sell my shares?
These shares are not intended to list on a major exchange after the Regulation A+ offering. Because the shares are currently not listed on a stock exchange, there is no active market. However, these securities will not be restricted and can be freely traded to the extent any market develops for them from the date that an investor receives their shares. This is an advantage of Regulation A+ compared to other public offerings of private companies because securities regulations allow investors to sell their shares immediately. We intend to list our shares on a new Regulation A+ aftermarket listing services, which we intend to select after we complete this offering. We expect initially that there will be limited liquidity in this market. The company currently has no plans to seek listing or quotation of the securities on the NASDAQ, NYSE, or the OTC markets. In the future, the company may choose to list the company on a major public stock exchange to bring liquidity to the shares

29. Can I still invest if I am not an accredited investor?
Yes, investors of any wealth level over 18 years of age may participate in the Regulation A+ offering.

30. Do my shares have voting rights?
Yes, one vote per share.

31. Can I add shares to my initial investment?
Yes, but each new investment must be at least $300.

We were asked about liquidity: The company intends to list the Regulation A+ shares on one of the Regulation A+ aftermarkets when the offering has completed. This is called Alternative Trading System or ATS. We are in the process of evaluating aftermarket options that will work best for our investors. These aftermarkets allow Reg A+ investors to buy and sell their securities. Because these markets are relatively new, we do not yet know how much liquidity they will provide. In the future we may elect to list the company on a major exchange like the NASDAQ. There can be no assurance that such a listing will occur.

IdentifySensors Biologics on December 23
We were asked if these shares will pay dividends. At this time, we expect the company will invest any profits back into its business. However, if the operation of the company produces sufficient profits that the Board of Directors determines the company should make distributions of profits to shareholders, the company will make dividend distributions to it’s Reg A+ shareholders.
