About The BioScanIR(R) System:
The Company's BioScanIR(R) System, which is available commercially in the U.S. and Europe, detects diseases that affect changes in blood perfusion by detecting minute changes in the pattern of infrared photon emissions over time. The detector technology used in the system, known as a Quantum Well Infrared Photodetector (QWIP), was originally developed for the Department of Defense's Ballistic Missile Defense Initiative. The Company owns an exclusive, worldwide license to use the technology for biomedical applications. OmniCorder believes that the BioScanIR(R) System will improve disease detection and disease management capabilities in many vascular and cancer medical applications. Both cancer and vascular disease are associated with abnormal blood flow in tissues and organs.
