"Relocation of the corporate headquarters from Tuscon, Arizona is a critical step in establishing roots in one of the country's leading med-tech center concentrations. Availability of highly trained and experienced medical technology field personnel was a key motivating factor in our decision along with access to leading clinicians and physicians in the field of traumatic brain injury and inflammatory disease."

The company's Tbit System is based on a proprietary nanotechnology biosensor to rapidly detect and accurately measure protein biomarkers that are released from the brain immediately following a head trauma or jolt to the body. The portable system allows for testing to be initially performed in the emergency department and eventually, after potential receipt of further FDA clearances, at the point-of-injury. Early diagnosis of a brain injury can support more appropriate treatment decisions while potentially reducing unnecessary head CT scans.
