Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – April 26, 2022) – Universal PropTech Inc. (TSXV: UPI) (“UPI” or the “Company“) announces today that ISBRG Corp. (“ISBRG“), a Toronto-based privately held, data analytics company specializing in health-related applications, in which the Company holds a small equity interest and select exclusive agency rights, has provided a corporate update.
ISBRG’s SpotLight-19© is designed to detect the presence of infection caused by SARS-CoV-2 virus. SpotLight-19© uses light to quickly scan a fingertip. The speed of the test (less than a minute) and cost of the test (approximately one dollar), combined with the non-invasive nature of the test (no body fluid or breath sample is required), has been designed to screen large numbers of people in largely populated venues (such as airports, businesses, arenas, etc.) without the prohibitive delays, cost and environmental damage associated with current chemical reagent, sample-based tests. The outcome of ISBRG’s clinical trial data is currently under evaluation by Health Canada.
For the full details of the corporate update of ISBRG, see ISBRG’s press release dated April 26, 2022.
