PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

We provide a comprehensive solution that allows diagnosing, treating and managing zoonotic diseases in animals and humans. Our proprietary Molecular Robotic/AI Platform and Therapeutic strategy (MORAPAT) is design to prevent the spread of disease from animals and at the same time, allow to better control of zoonotic infectious agents. More importantly, we believe that our platform could prevent the spread of viruses and bacteria into the food chain and subsequent infection of human population. An important part of this strategy is our ability to detect the presence of a low number of infected particles in different specimen tested for the presence of zoonotic virus and bacteria such as SARS- CoV-2 and MAP. Consequentially, our platform is not only able to detect infected animals, but can also prevent human infections.

 

We have developed a molecular system for the detection of Mycobacterium Avian Paratuberculosis in the milk of infected dairy cows. Samples from milk obtained from supermarket shelves were either ’spiked’ with different concentrations of Mycobacterium Avian Para tuberculosis or ‘naturally processed.’ The bacterial DNA was isolated using both, manual and robotic-based DNA extraction procedures and analyzed using the real time PCR technology. Using this methodology, we can detect between two (2) and twenty (20) bacterial particles from 10 ml of milk. We believe that our test will be very useful for early detection of Mycobacterium Avian Para tuberculosis, both in milk samples and in infected cows.

 

We are currently evaluating several robotic systems for nucleic acid extraction. We believe that we can further increase the sensitivity of the molecular assay by using robotic driven DNA and RNA extraction methods.

 

We are currently developing a vaccine for MAP infection. Our approach for developing this vaccine is based on the use our Molecular Robotic/AI Platform and Therapeutic (MORAPAT) technology which also includes our PURIVAX technology, genetically engineered Adenoviral and AVV, and CRISPR technology.

 

At the present time, we do not have sufficient financial resources to implement further development work; therefore, we will need to secure substantial funding to continue the development of the MAP vaccine.

 

To date, we have developed a prototype computer program to track samples that will be received and processed in our planned commercial laboratory. This program will initially be used to track samples that will be sent out and received by our laboratory. Upon raising the additional requisite funding, of which there is no guarantee, we will then work on improving the system in order to track samples during the different phases of DNA and RNA extraction procedures. In addition, we will continue to develop a database system to store and analyze data collected during sample analysis.
