SAN LEANDRO, Calif., Nov. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nanomix Corporation (OTCQB: NNMX) (“Nanomix” or the “Company”), a leader in the development of mobile, affordable, point-of-care (POC) diagnostics, today announced that it has entered into a distribution agreement with Gepa Srl (“Gepa”), a distributor and supplier of diagnostic products in Italy.
John Hardesky, Chief Commercial Officer of Nanomix, stated, “Gepa has significant experience in this increasingly complex and important segment of critical infections, sepsis, and antibiotic stewardship. Over the last decade, their team has actively implemented clinical diagnostic solutions to help caregivers improve patient outcomes and positively impact hospital performance. We are excited to support and align with Gepa on an ambitious execution plan to bring our technology to a competitive market like Italy.”
Riccardo Figus, Business Manager of Gepa, commented, “The GEPA team is very excited to develop the Italian market for the new eLab, a true Point of Care device. The agreement with Nanomix enables us to offer our customers an innovative solution for the fight against sepsis. This is a big step forward for the Italian healthcare system to bring reliable results from sample to result wherever the emergency is.”
Sepsis is a recognized global health crisis. Early identification and treatment is a need and a challenge for healthcare professionals around the globe. For many reasons, sepsis can be difficult to identify and is frequently under-diagnosed in the earliest stages. It affects as many as 50 million people every year, leading to approximately 11 million deaths annually.
The Nanōmix eLab® system is a mobile, hand-held immunoassay and chemistry diagnostic system designed for the needs of rapid point-of-care testing. The Nanōmix eLab® system offers a variety of benefits, including results in minutes, lower cost, and portability, while providing accurate, quantitative results comparable in quality to those provided by central lab testing. Furthermore, the S1 Panel Cartridge was developed as an aid in rapidly diagnosing critical infections including sepsis. The panel provides quantitative test results for procalcitonin (PCT), C-reactive protein (CRP) and lactate (LAC) from a single venous whole blood or plasma sample type. The assay runs on the eLab® Analyzer with results available in approximately 12 minutes from sample to answer, versus the current diagnostic solutions which can take hours to provide a test result. The S1 Panel assay has received the CE marking in Europe and has UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) registration.
