New Innovative Technologies
Continue to Emerge in the Fight
Against COVID-19
ven as the world inches foward to
achieving a fully vaccinated population
against COVID-19, innovators are working
hard to develop new technologies that diagnose
and treat this awful virus. The disease
continues to thrive in many parts of the
world, and new variants are still a concern.
E
One such innovative company, for
example, is Medivolve, which seeks out
disruptive technologies and exclusive
partnerships to develop technologies to
help combat COVID-19. The company
teamed with Marvel Diagnostics, the
developer of the noninvasive exhaled
breath diagnostic technology called
BlowFISH. Medivolve announced its
investment in Marvel Diagnostics in
January 2021, providing up to $1 million
in funding. BlowFISH has now successfully
cleared the first milestone in a series of
clinical tests targeting application of an
Emergency Use Authorization (EUA)
from FDA to test for the COVID-19 virus.
During the clinical trial, BlowFISH's
proprietary technology, designed to efficiently
collect a substantial liquid sampling
directly from deep within the lungs, successfully
detected the COVID-19 virus in
three test samples. Developed by Marvel
Diagnostics and funded by Medivolve, the
technology offers the potential for a simple,
inexpensive, noninvasive, massively
deployable, rapid diagnostic system for
detecting respiratory illness and airborne
viral threats in approximately 10 minutes.
" This is an exciting and important
milestone in advancing BlowFISH toward
achieving EUA status in testing for
COVID-19, and providing a noninvasive,
cost-effective, and scalable testing alternative
to nasal swab solutions currently in
market, " says David Preiner, CEO of
Medivolve. " Making testing more accessible
to populations such as children and
the elderly, where it may be difficult to
administer a nasopharyngeal swab test,
will become important in our transition
to resuming daily life in the new normal.
Data obtained from BlowFISH-powered
testing will also further Medivolve's mission
to use innovation and artificial intelligence
to close the loop in health management
for every American. "
Marvel Diagnostics is partnering with
a research team from Louisiana State
University Health Shreveport (LSUSH)
to conduct clinical trials. With the second
phase of testing now in progress,
BlowFISH is currently on the right track
to seek EUA approval from FDA.
" BlowFISH's detection of the COVID-19
virus brings us one significant step closer
to changing the future of diagnostics for
not only COVID-19, but for a wide range
of respiratory illnesses, " says Dr. Pirouz
Kavehpour, UCLA professor and Marvel
Diagnostics co-founder. " We are moving
forward with urgency through proof-ofconcept
clinical trials, as these studies are
a critical next step in making respiratory
testing more comfortable, convenient and
accessible for all ... one breath at a time. "
Technologies like this are changing
the future of the healthcare landscape,
providing diagnosis faster and with more
accuracy than ever before.
