Early disease detection saves lives.

Technologies exist for disease screening, yet many people are not getting screened.

Accessible Routine Screening.

There’s a hard truth facing the medical community that we are out to change: too few people participate in screening programs. One of the primary barriers is access.

Standard screening processes typically involve a separate trip to a clinic or other medical facility. Screening is time-consuming and may require patient fasting, contrast or tracers, imaging or blood work, and in some cases, a clinical procedure using sedatives or anesthesia. Many Americans live too far from a screening facility to make routine screening a viable option. Often, it’s a whole-day affair, and some can’t even get there.

With such hurdles, it’s no wonder many skip screening, especially if they show no symptoms.

Oh, and did we mention our test is non-invasive? Just Breathe™.

Coming to A Neighborhood Near You: Making Early Disease Screening Ubiquitous

We are removing barriers to disease screening, dramatically increasing the number of people participating in recommended programs. As patient screening volume increases, early detection of asymptomatic patients will also increase, allowing for earlier intervention and disease management.

Our sampling technology can be placed in doctors’ offices, pharmacies, and even mobile units, providing accessible early-detection options for all populations. All you have to do is breathe: no needles, no contrast, and no radiation.

 

We're Starting with Lung Cancer, the Deadliest Cancer in the U.S. and the World.

Annual screening is recommended for 14 million Americans who are at high risk for developing lung cancer. However, only approximately 5% of those eligible get screened for lung cancer. The current screening standard is low-dose computed tomography scan (LDCT). Breathe BioMedical is working to increase the number of those screened by removing common barriers:

Proximity

Nearly one-third of Americans live more than 30 miles from an LDCT machine.
Our breath sampler is compact and portable, allowing deployment in accessible point of care locations.

Safety

Exposure to radiation gives pause for asymptomatic individuals and health care providers.
Our approach to sampling is non-invasive without any exposure to radiation.

Cost

LDCT instruments are large, complex and expensive, requiring specialized staff and facilities.
Our point of care technology is less expensive and can be administered by non-technical staff.
