The PersOwn Story

Seeing firsthand how life as we knew it was rapidly changing due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, I quickly realized that the only way to navigate the pandemic successfully was through a lot of testing. The testing had to be extremely accurate, it had to deliver results fast, it had to be affordable, and if we were going to stop the spread, it had to be able to detect very low levels of the virus in the patient. In fact, it had to be able to detect the virus before the patient was symptomatic and before they were highly contagious.

Early on in our search for a diagnostic solution that would meet all those requirements, we found that only electrochemistry-based approach could satisfy all the criteria. So we assembled a world-class team of electrochemists and began to review prior applications of electrochemistry to medical diagnostics. We studied what had worked and what had not, many with serious limitations.

What we found was that we could apply the advances in electronics that were driven by the rapid evolution of the smartphone and RFID tags to efficiently eliminate the previously experienced limitations. The result of our efforts was a strong IP supported portfolio that makes the foundation of a powerful diagnostic platform.

It quickly became apparent that we could use this foundation to not only change the course of the current pandemic, but also to provide early detection of heart attacks, concussion, tuberculosis, various cancers and dozens of other conditions .

This powerful realization, coupled with the discovery that 75% of physicians globally do not have access to state-of-the-art diagnostic capabilities, fueled the expansion of our vision.

If we could link the enormous amounts of data created by our test platform to create electronic medical records where they don’t exist, leveraging the advances enabled by the global deployment of smart phones, we could link patients to physicians to treatments – enabling the complete healthcare cycle, resulting in positive transformation of health outcomes around the globe. Our approach to this complete cycle from diagnostics through positive outcome evolved around the patient – enabling the patient to take control of their medical records and to be proactive in managing their own health.

We plan to build a profitable company for our investors that makes health care affordable and available globally. We are on a mission to positively impact health outcomes and improve the quality of life at home and around the globe. We invite you to join our mission with the confidence that your investment will make the world a better place.
