With biotech technology progressing at an ever increasing rate, the question has changed – instead of merely focusing on curing various illnesses and conditions, prevention has taken the spotlight.
In fact, according to Trust for America’s Health (TFAH) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), 71% of Americans are in favor of increased investment when it comes to disease prevention. More accessible healthcare, early detection and genetic screening have become popular topics of discussion and have the public wondering what could be next…
Early detection of cancer, liver disease and alzheimers could potentially change medical industry forever
Early detection of conditions, diseases and varying illnesses can be challenging, but numbers show that it has an incredible impact on health and survivability. In terms of cancer, early detection has been the key to survival – 90% of people survive bowel cancer if it is caught at the earliest stage, according to Professor Jane Warle and that’s merely one area.
Despite statistics like that, however, the rate of people who get regularly tested is low and that’s in a large part because of the lack of accessible and non-invasive options. Some options include painful or uncomfortable procedures or even exploratory surgery and that’s enough to put a lot of people off. There is, however, one company that has evolved past the need for discomfort – Breathtec Biomedical Inc. (OTCQB: BTHCF – website: here) could become the future of disease detection, specializing in the early detection of life-threatening illnesses and perhaps best of all, in a non-invasive procedure.
How Does This Non-Invasive Disease Detection Device Look?

Recently, the company announced that it plans to begin clinical trials of the core technology for its product. The clinical trials, which will be held at the renowned Innovation Boulevard in Surrey, British Columbia, will be an intensive research review into NA-NOSE, which has been in-licensed by Breathtec and is an advanced stage, nanotechnology-based breath analysis device from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology.
Breathtec first clinical trials – breathtaking results!
Breathtec Biomedical, Inc. has entered into a license agreement with the Technion Research and Development Foundation Ltd., an Israeli private company and wholly-owned subsidiary of the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology (“Technion”), with respect to NA-NOSE, an advanced stage breath analysis technology

Breathtec Device is booming in the news:
Breathtec has been featured on CBC News in Canada and called – “Battling Disease with Breath”
Breathtec has also been featured on FOX35. Dr.Yost explained how breathalyzers could detect diseases on early stages. See the video below:
Recently Global News (globalnews.ca) called Breathtec – “A ‘breathalyser’ for diseases”. Check company’s latest video update and stock quote BTHCF
How Big is The Medical Device Market?
How Breathtec Technology Works?
Michael Bousamra, M.D. and a team of researchers from the University of Louisville developed a silicone microprocessor and mass spectrometer that has shown 95% accuracy in detecting specific compounds associated with lung cancer – in practice, it was 95% accurate when it came to predicting the malignancy of tumors as well. In effect, BreathTec currently owns the University of Florida patent U.S 8,237,118, “Partial Ovoidal FAIMS Electrode”, a mass spectrometry technique that exploits the differences in ion mobility at very high electric fields to separate ions in the millisecond timescale after liquid chromatography separation and prior to introduction to a mass spectrometer.
What this technology can accomplish is the miniaturization of breath testing devices and the development of non-invasive clinical screening which will save lives.
It’s accessible too and can be used in a clinic, a hospital or anywhere else you’d need it, meaning it can be made use of by just about anyone.
What Could This Mean For Consumers and Investors?
The economic impact a technique like this could be measured in the billions – because anything in your body that reaches your blood can be detected in your breathe, it’s only a matter of time before breath tests become the norm in hospitals, clinics and doctor’s offices nation as well as world wide. The ability to early detect conditions like cancer, Alzeimers and Parkinsons, heart disease and diabetes and more will not only improve the overall health of human kind, but take a massive burden of the already overloaded medical industry. Breath analysis is quickly becoming a favored method by health care professionals for it’s rapid results, relatively low cost and it’s safety.
The ultimate goal is to create something affordable and portable in both desktop and handheld sizes so it can be used anywhere, by anyone, with little effort.
Could This Innovative Technology Be The Next Big Thing?
It’s no surprise that medical technology tend to be the hottest niche in 2016, because it’s one of the largest industries on the planet in almost every country on Earth. It’s not just favored in terms of ROI, but because it’s an industry that makes a real difference, promoting the health and well-being of us all, saving and bettering lives. While medical technology giants like Johnson & Johnson eat up a massive market share with $27.5 billion revenue in 2014, others stars are rising and there is a massive push towards diagnostic and prevention care that’s begging for a contender. Diagnostic imaging alone had an annual revenue of $35.6 billion and is expected to increase to $40.9 billion in 2020, leaving room for exponential growth as one of the fastest growing segments of technology.
Significant Growth Have Historically Been Found in the Biotech Market
According to CNN Money, 4 out of 5 of the Best Performing IPOs in 2015 have been pharmaceutical and biotech companies including companies such as Spark Therapeutics Inc and Aduro BioTech Inc.
Perfect Momentum for BreathTec?
The momentum at BreathTec (OTCQB: BTHCF) has been…well, breathtaking. In the first half of 2016 alone, the company began publicly trading on the Canadian Securities Exchange and the OTC Markets, and added a number of industry leaders to its team. In June, Breathtec appointed industry veteran Guy LaTorre as CEO. LaTorre brings with him over 25 years of experience in the healthcare industry, including being a co-founder of Novamin Technology Inc. Novamin Technology Inc. was successfully sold to GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) in 2010 for USD $135 million.
Breathtec Biomedical (OTCQB: BTHCF) is uniquely positioned to propel innovative research in the area of diagnostics with the ultimate goal of furthering early detection technology. Unlike competitors, who use blood and tissue tests, they’re taking advantage of exciting new breath-based analysis and are truly delivering something new and innovative, something bound to change the medical world forever.
