IONIQ Sciences is modernizing early-stage cancer detection. IONIQ Sciences is decoding the science of the body’s earliest response to the presence of cancer. The body’s electrical properties change in the presence of cancer. IONIQ can detect that change in the earliest stages of the disease when it matters most. Their vision is to dramatically improve the cancer landscape with a modern, non-invasive solution at the point-of-care (POC) for early detection of multiple cancers thereby expanding the therapeutic window, significantly improving survivability, and reducing the cost of healthcare. IONIQ is following a strategic course to develop and commercialize the first ever non-invasive, FDA cleared Multi-Cancer Screen. IONIQ’s first planned product utilizing its proprietary analytic platform, the IONIQ ProLung Test™ for lung cancer, has been designated a ‘Breakthrough Device’ by the U.S. FDA. Feasibility clinical trial work is underway in breast cancer and preliminary results have been recently published in the IEEE Access journal. IONIQ Sciences operates at the confluence of its Electrical Impedance Analytics (EIA) or bioimpedance technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI). It has demonstrated the potential to expand the therapeutic window, dramatically improve survivability and reduce the cost of healthcare.
