Company’s 13th patent granted strengthens protection for unique and proprietary Intelligent Fingerprinting point-of-care diagnostic drug screening technology
Intelligent Bio Solutions Inc. (Nasdaq: INBS) (“INBS” or the “Company”), a medical technology company delivering intelligent, rapid, non-invasive testing solutions, today announced that the Company has been granted a patent in the United Kingdom (UK) relating to its Intelligent Fingerprinting Drug Screening System DSR-Plus Cartridge Reader. This is the Company’s 13th patent, which further strengthens the protection of its unique and proprietary drug screening technology.
UK Patent No: GB2592432, relates to the proprietary lateral flow test strip reading capability within the Company’s latest DSR-Plus cartridge reading unit. Designed and manufactured in the UK, the cartridge reader features a compact and portable specification that enables even simpler and faster drug testing. It provides organisations with rapid drug screening support wherever and whenever it’s needed. The DSR-Plus reader has been designed with no moving parts, ensuring resiliency when customers transport it between different sites, while improved battery life boosts screening productivity for human resources teams.
“We are very pleased to see that the hard work and dedication of the INBS team has resulted in this patent being granted for our proprietary fingerprint sweat-based technology,” commented Harry Simeonidis, President and CEO of Intelligent Bio Solutions. “This patent demonstrates the value of our innovative technology for the growing number of organisations looking to deter drug abuse in the workplace. It’s also extremely important for us to receive further protection for our intellectual property portfolio as we continue to expand our point-of-care diagnostic solutions business internationally.”
The non-invasive Intelligent Fingerprinting system comprises a small, tamper-evident drug screening cartridge onto which ten fingerprint sweat samples are collected in under a minute, before the portable DSR-Plus reader provides an on-screen result in less than ten minutes. The system can be used in-house and screens the sweat for recent drug use, including cannabis, cocaine, opiates, and methamphetamine.
