NEW YORK, New York, March 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Parallax Health Sciences, Inc. (PRLX) (''Parallax'' or the ''Company''), an outcome-driven connected healthcare company, today announced that it has selected the antigens and antibodies that it will use as the markers for its rapid Coronavirus (“COVID-19”) screen test used on its FDA Cleared & Patented Target Diagnostics Test Platform.
“I am pleased to have this stage of the test development process behind us and look forward to getting into a lab and testing these COVID-19 markers on our Target cartridge,” stated Dr. David Stark, President of Parallax Diagnostics, Inc. Dr. Stark continued, “We understand that there is an immediate need for COVID-19 screen tests in the face of this historic pandemic, and believe that this proprietary test would be available at the earliest by summer. As we stated in an earlier communication, our COVID-19 test strategy included proprietary development of a COVID-19 rapid screen test on our patented and FDA approved test platform, or in conjunction with the acquisition or licensing of an existing rapid test to accelerate our delivery of the much needed COVID-19 test.”
Paul Arena, Chief Executive Officer of Parallax Health Sciences, Inc., stated, “We understand there are other companies getting COVID-19 tests to market, and we at Parallax welcome all companies who can help with this tragic pandemic.” Mr. Arena added, “We believe that our 4 stage platform, including (i) testing, (ii) data management and disease tracking, (iii) remote patient monitoring; and (iv) telehealth and behavioral intervention is a strong holistic solution to a pandemic such as the one we face today and will, sadly face in the near future, according to the experts forecasts. We are positioning our proprietary Target Analyzer along multiple paths in our pursuit of testing solutions for COVID-19 and we are currently negotiating with diagnostic firms in and outside of the U.S.”
