Breath Diagnostic Technologies
Scentech Medical is a company specializing in Breath Test Diagnostics. It has been established on the infrastructure of several successful experiments over the last decade, including clinical trials, for the detection of infectious diseases, cancers, and other illnesses by a straightforward test of the patient's breath sample.
Mapping the Coronavirus Fingerprint
Scentech Medical completed its clinical trial at the Meir Medical Center, during which hundreds of breath samples were collected from healthy and Covid-19 positive subjects. Concurrently, Scentech Medical initiated another clinical trial in collaboration with the Israel Defense Forces. Nowadays, the company focuses on working around the clock analyzing the data to continue developing the test. Already at this stage, Scentech Medical had some success and identified several initial indicators for unique Covid-19 biomarkers, which constitute a distinctive metabolic “fingerprint” of the CoV-SARS-2 pathogen. Simultaneously, the company has commenced a validation study at the Shamir Medical Center utilizing Scentech Medical’s diagnostic device aimed at passing FDA regulation. The company continues performing diagnostic tests to better the accuracy of its findings, thus allowing for the development of a reliable, precise, and fast test. In addition to the clinical trials, the company is in the process of merging with the shell company NextGen BioMed in Israel. (TASE:NXGN)
Samples for the study will be collected using Owlstone Medical's Breath Biopsy®️ platform, which includes the ReCIVA®️ Breath Sampler and CASPER®️ Portable Air Supply. For more information, visit
Real-Time Accurate Disease Identification Breath Analysis
Our technology provides a solution for highly accurate breath analysis in real-time and at the Point of Care. Identifying infectious diseases in their early stages can be critical in preventing the spread of an epidemic like the Coronavirus.
Every living organism has unique metabolic processes that produce a particular signature. With the company’s exclusive technology and methodology for identifying "Volatile Organic Compounds" (VOCs) in exhaled breath, we can identify the direct compounds associated with the virus’s activity.
Scentech Medical’s laboratory, located in the Weizmann Science Park, Ness Ziona, Israel,
is uniquely suited for mapping biomarkers in exhaled breath thanks to its state-of-the-art equipment and a team of highly skilled researchers.
RBT - Rapid Breath Test
Developing a Breath Test for Coronavirus Detection In the last few months,
in light of the coronavirus crisis, Scentech-Medical opened a new division which focuses on the development of a breath test for the detection of coronavirus (SARS-Cov-2) in human breath:
The development is based on the detection and mapping of biomarkers, in the form of VOCs, which are associated with the virus’s activity in the body and are found in the breath of symptomatic and asymptomatic patients. The breath test is expected to offer many advantages over existing technologies, including:
* Detection of asymptomatic patients
* Rapid test with on-the-spot results
* Better accuracy Lower operational costs per test
* Does not require the use of reagents or a trained personnel to administer the test
* Since the test recognizes biomarkers associated with the virus, it can be updated/adapted relatively easily to new mutations or viruses.
* All Pictures shown are for illustration purpose only
