AXIM Biotechnologies Develops Novel Tear Sample Collector System, Files Patent Application
SAN DIEGO, May 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AXIM Biotechnologies, Inc (OTCQB: AXIM) (“AXIM Biotech,” “AXIM” or “the Company”), an international healthcare solutions company targeting dry eye disease (DED), today announced that it has developed a novel tear sample collector system and has filed for a provisional patent application for it with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
Tear fluid analysis is a non-invasive method to obtain valuable information about the health condition of various ocular and systemic diseases, including Dry Eye Disease, since tear fluid contains several molecular constituents that may be altered under abnormal conditions. However, obtaining adequate samples for tear analysis requires an effective collection method. Most tear sample collectors on the market use capillary designs that are intimidating to patients, difficult for untrained personnel to use, and expensive to manufacture.
AXIM’s novel tear sample collector system provides a more comfortable experience for patients, features an indicator that appears on the strip when enough tear fluid has been absorbed, makes it easy for untrained personnel to use, and is extremely cost-effective to produce on a mass scale. It is especially important that it is easy to mass produce because of the growing prevalence of ocular diseases, including Dry Eye Disease, which affects approximately 6.8% of the U.S. population.
AXIM plans to add this tear collection system to aid the advancement of its four Point-of-Care Biomarker Tests designed to accelerate the diagnosis of Dry Eye Disease. These tests include its recently announced Lacritin test, MMP-9 test, and FDA 501(k) cleared tests for Lactoferrin and IgE.
John Huemoeller, AXIM’s CEO stated, “We are optimistic that this new system will play a vital role in the technological advancement of tear fluid collection and believe that we will provide great value to both patients and eye care medical professionals. We are continually improving what we acquired and what we have internally developed.”
