COVID-19 IQStiks®

Saving Lives in Minutes - Not Days

American Made DiagnoStiks® (AMD), a Medical Device company based in Newport Beach, CA, has developed the IQStik®, an antibody test for the deadly COVID-19 virus with results in just 5 minutes.  

The IQStik® is one of a suite of saliva-based test products developed by AMD. It will be distributed on a global basis for the identification of COVID-19 in its earliest stages (i.e., within 2-3 days of contact). The use of saliva has been studied extensively as a diagnostic tool due to its ease of use and non-invasive accessibility along with its abundance of biomarkers, such as genetic material and proteins. Rutgers University, a top research university located in New Brunswick, NJ, has validated saliva as being a viable source for COVID-19 detection. Rutgers, after an extensive study, is just one of many other universities and laboratories around the world that have come to the same conclusion.

Currently, all experts agree: changes in the way humanity inhabits this planet make the emergence of more aggressive diseases inevitable. The world is in desperate need of a quick delivery testing device that is mobile, accurate, and able to get the results in as short a time possible, not in hours or days; to save lives. 

What Is COVID-19 Virus?

COVID-19 is a new strain of coronavirus that had not been previously identified in humans. This virus is the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness which was first detected in Wuhan, China. Since December 2019, cases have been identified in a growing number of countries. The World Health Organization declared the outbreak of a pneumonia-like disease called COVID-19 has reached a pandemic status, determining exactly how widespread the disease is has been a huge challenge. 

The virus that causes COVID-19 is technically called SARS-CoV-2 and is part of the large coronavirus family.  It’s called this for the way their spike (S) protein appears, under the microscope. That spike protein, along with other proteins (M and E) is embedded in a protective, fatty coating called a lipid envelope. It keeps the viral RNA, which is, in turn, is protected in a nucleocapsid, protected until the RNA can be injected into a host cell.

Sometimes people may be infected by a virus and never know it because their immune system successfully destroys this virus. Others may develop an active infection with symptoms that vary depending on the strength of the infecting virus. These symptoms can involve the gastrointestinal tract, lungs, or central nervous system among other body sites

AMD has patented technology that will help identify the COVID-19 virus on a global basis with its IQStik® with results available in just 5 minutes!

AMD's technology has made significant advances in the delivery of a test that will be available to the public, as well as hospitals, clinics, and more, which allows a simple, low cost, disposable tool to provide immediate, on-site diagnostic results with forensic accuracy and reliability in five minutes. Additionally, no infrastructure, medical professionals, trained technicians, or laboratories are required. The diagnosis is conducted on-the-spot and no longer needs invasive and complicated blood tests or urine samples. All this, in the complete privacy of your own home. The IQStik® eliminates all Chain of Custody issues.

Only one person touches your IQStik® test and results: YOU

The IQStik® has the advantage of eliminating any Chain of Custody issues inherently present in other COVID-19 tests. The term “Chain of Custody” is a term used to refer to the whereabouts of your particular lab sample must always be known. This means that from the moment your sample is collected to the final day delivery of your results, each step must be accounted for. In addition, a neutral third party must be the one collecting the initial sample and then be designated responsible for ensuring that no unauthorized persons come into contact with it.

This involves keeping a detailed log showing who collected, handled, transferred, or analyzed your sample from the moment that it was collected through all the different steps that the sample was put through (ie. the chronological order in which your sample is handled throughout it being tested. This carefully includes documentation, listing all persons who have handled your sample being collected, transported, the numerous times being analyzed, or all other contacts with your sample. The names, dates, times, serial number (your sample is assigned), and descriptions of your sample are standard pieces of information that are critical in you getting the correct answer.

One critical example that most people are unaware of is, that at all times your sample MUST not be allowed to be exposed to temperatures of 800 Fahrenheit or over. Should this happen, your sample, will be destroyed and yet still look to anyone as normal.

These steps as you can see are critical (should you be positive) in determining that you need help immediately (should you be told your Positive), which is why the COVID-19 testing process is held to such strict requirements. These requirements are why a clear chain of custody, is a particularly important factor that can impact the accuracy and reliability of COVID-19 testing results.

With the IQStik®, there is no more waiting for lab results that take up to days, during which time people are subject to unacceptable anxiety or, worse, in mass populations the disease is given additional time to spread, while the pathogens infect more people. The earliest detection of the disease in a person is critical in reducing and stopping the spread of any disease. This without question is the most important step.

Before using other testing products/methods from online or retailers, please read this first:

Part 1. When you purchase the test kit either online or at the retailer, detailed instructions on how to administer the test swab are included. Also included are screening questions, to determine if you have been exposed to the virus, which must be filled out and sent in.

Part 2. The swab type test is designed to be inserted into your nasal passageway to secure an open airway (Nasopharyngeal) or down your throat. You are instructed to insert the swab and move it around for one minute. Then wait a minute, then repeat the same instructions over again.

Part 3. Upon completion of this uncomfortable test, you are instructed to insert the collection swab (collection nasopharyngeal fluids, nasal swab) into a protective vial and mail it to the lab. It takes between 2-3 days for the lab to receive your sample.

Part 4. Once the lab receives your sample, it takes 4-6 hours for the lab to receive results.

Part 5. Finally, the lab needs to locate you and inform you of your results. All adding up to precious time lost for you to get the help you desperately needed. 

AMD's first round of funding will be: $3.5M at $1.00 per share. $50,000 Minimum Investment.

The second round of funding will be $11.5M at $4.00 per share, for a total of $15M.

**AMD will be in full production within 120 days from the date funding is completed**

Some of the key benefits of our test is saving time and money along with the ease of obtaining results. Other products still require the sample material to be analyzed by the costly equipment at a facility, and the consumer still needs to collect a sample, place it into a vile, and ship (1-3 days) off to a lab to analyze. This testing process costs the consumer approximately $185.00 and a week of anxiety and lost time, waiting for results.

We can never stop the spread of infectious diseases until we identify the carriers first.

How many COVID-19 cases have gone undetected? How many people have had a mild case of the virus and may have dismissed it as a cold or allergies, not knowing that instead, a patient may be immune to the infection and could spread the Virus unwillingly to others. 

Unfortunately, the answer won’t come from the RNA-based test that is being administered to most people. These tests look for the presence of Viral genes in a nose or throat swab, a sign of an active infection. 

Labs also need to test a person’s blood/saliva for antibodies of the new COVID-19 Virus, known as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). These tests can detect active infections. Far more importantly, these test results relate to whether a person has been infected in the past because the body retains antibodies against pathogens it has already overcome. Labs and companies around the world now understand this and have raced to develop new antibody tests. 

AMD will offer an alternative to other commercial tests that still, as of today, are antiquated. AMD’s test is the first with detailed protocols that can be widely distributed. AMD could quickly scale its test to screen 10 million people per month and promptly amass more data with accuracy and specificity with the ability to share the information with various agencies around the world via the AMD StikReader®. With the increased availability of our test for over-the-counter use, it will provide meaningful answers to the identification of infected people with the SARS-CoV-2 Virus.

Originally, AMD's research and development of a test for the SARS-CoV-2’s Virus began by designing a slightly different version of the “spike” protein on SARS-CoV-2’s outer coat. These changes allowed the protein to be more stable for use in the test. The stability of the protein is key to the immune reaction against the COVID-19 Virus, as the body develops antibodies to help it recognize the procedure for establishing a chain of custody starts with the collection of the sample. Our researchers isolated a short piece of the spike protein called the Receptor-Binding Domain (RBD), which the virus uses to attach to cells it tries to invade.

Identifying infected individuals requires accurate and specific tests.

The AMD IQStik® is able to identify the COVID-19 virus within 5 minutes from the time the individual submits their sample, well before any other test currently on the market. This is the most advanced test and MUST be utilized as soon as possible to identify the infected and help them recover. 

The first step is a test that can accurately test for the COVID-19 Virus. Sounds simple, it's not. Most tests are only able to identify one type of antibody. The most popular test for antibodies is one that is only able to identify the active antibodies in your system to fight off and kill the Virus.

Unfortunately, the antibodies take approximatively 1-3 weeks to develop and become strong enough to fight the Virus. This lag time of 1-3 weeks comes from the antibodies trying to identify the correct virus in your body. During this time, it also gives the virus time to gain its own strength to fight back.

At this point, when a vaccine becomes available is where the vaccine (correct antibodies) joins in with your own developing antibodies to fight off and kill the Virus. Time is critical at this stage in identifying the infected as soon as possible.

Without proper testing done early on, the Virus will continue to spread. 

Part of the Government’s first testing, was analysis of all antibody testing throughout the country and so far has shown figures of 70 % of people tested positive for the Virus do not have any symptoms at the time of their test, or during the week before or after. Only 21% reported symptoms on the actual day of testing.

Even with ideal containment, the Virus spread may have been inevitable. Testing people who are already extremely sick is an imperfect strategy, (see the information below) because the early stage date proves that people can spread the virus without even feeling sick.

Without proper testing early enough, this Virus will continue to spread quickly. If this disease continues to be as severe as it is now, cold and flu season, could become, the cold and flu and COVID-19 season.

The AMD IQStik® can identify the COVID-19 virus within 5 minutes after taking the test and well before any other test currently on the market.  American Made DiagnoStiks® (AMD) has spent years and millions of dollars developing our range of saliva-based test products. All our products are patented, and patent pending with ten more being filed shortly. Just on the SARS Virus (a family member of the COVID-19 Virus) alone we spent a number of years, the time and efforts spent was a big advantage in the development for the COVID-19 IQStik®.

The IQStik® is an absolute must in identifying the infected.

Below is a quick list of accuracy issues most other companies are having

AMD has addressed these issues from the beginning in the development of the IQStik®. 

There are several factors of accuracy that can lead to false positives or false negatives with different tests, including the most popular PCR - based tests. AMD’s IQStik® has addressed these issues.

#1 The sample is collected too early. Newly infected individuals may have too low concentrations of the virus present at the time of test sample.

#2 The sample is collected too late. If a sample is taken after the disease has progressed too far,the amount of virus that remains in the body might not be enough to be detected by the test, leading to a false-negative result.

#3 The sample is contaminated. Handling samples taken from patients who have high concentrations of the virus brings a greater risk of contaminating other surfaces in the environment (such as gloves, sample collection devices, etc.). This could lead to contamination of other patient samples, so they show up as false positives. 

#4 The sample is stored too long. Samples taken from patients have limited stability over time. If extended storage, transport, or handling causes a long delay before the sample is even tested. This will make it more difficult to detect the virus, leading to a false-negative result. 

#5 The different tests themselves are plagued with high rates of inaccuracy. 

#6 Many people have already been exposed to a common-cold virus and could be carrying antibodies against that virus. So, any Covid-19 test must be able to distinguish between the novel Coronavirus and the more common, less dangerous ones like the cold-flu. 

#7 The findings suggest that the government’s test, track, and trace policy will fail to pick up at least seven in 10 cases and most people who suffer symptoms will not have the virus. 

#8 Most people who tested positive, about 70 percent of them, did not report any at all. One issue that is immediate: Doctors hope that they can transfer the antibodies from a survivor to a person with current Covid-19 so that these antibodies could attack the virus straight away and kill it.

Some of these accuracy issues include: In terms of assessing your behavior and risk-management as we shift out of lock-down, this means that, on average, every time you’re in a crowd of 400 people or more like baseball games, football games, basketball games, etc., one person may be unknowingly shedding the virus.

AMD’s Biodegradable Patented Packaging System

From the beginning, AMD chose to take the most advanced protocol in protecting its IQStik® test with Medical grade packaging materials. Medical grade packaging with single-use products is sterilized on-site by the packaging manufacturer. Key requirements for sterilized medical packaging include fiber-free surfaces, the ability to withstand sterilization (by ETO, steam, or gamma radiation), with clean-room manufacturing. 

As the medical industry and its requirements change, so do packaging methods. Moisture barrier bags, (sometimes called foil bags, or Mylar bags), are one of the best packaging solutions in protecting against damage caused by humidity, moisture, oxygen, salt spray, aromas, dust, and other airborne contaminants. The purpose of the secondary wrap is to enable the non-sterile user (consumer) to transfer the foil packaging without touching it or otherwise compromising its sterility. 

Because of the sensitive nature of the compounds to light, temperature (1000 F), moisture, etc. it is the most expensive part of our production costs, and it's worth every penny. AMD has gone to such great lengths in choosing the very best materials for its packaging as protection for the Stiks that we have, without question, the highest rating of any company in this market space.

Private Labeling and PR Promotion 

Private labeling is an important American Made DiagnoStiks® component to bring the products to market faster and more efficiently. There are opportunities for Fortune 500 companies to place products around the world with their name proudly displayed, which will provide great exposure and PR. Many state Governors are seeking private companies that can make tests to help get citizens back to work. And even when people do return to work, they will need to be tested frequently to keep the workplace safe. 

Donation to Front-Line Workers

Protect Our Health Care Workers

Worldwide, as millions of people stay at home to minimize transmission of Covid-19, healthcare workers and first responders prepare to do the exact opposite. They will go to people’s homes, clinics, and hospitals, 
putting themselves at high risk in our communities for the health of others.

Reports from medical staff describe physical and mental exhaustion, the torment of difficult triage decisions, and the pain of losing patients and colleagues, in addition to 
the infection risk.

Some medical staff are waiting for equipment while seeing patients who may be infected or are supplied with equipment that might not meet requirements. Alongside concerns for their personal safety, healthcare workers are 
anxious about passing the infection to their own families and loveones.

All of us at American Made DiagnoStiks® believe the people on the front lines are truly heroes and should be treated as such. We plan to donate 10% of all production of Stiks to these heroes. These front liners include fireman, police, paramedics, doctors, nurses and hospital staff. 

COVID-19 is going to bring record numbers of new Drugs and Alcohol abuse problems.

AMD also has patented technology for Drugs of Abuse and Alcohol testing with results in 1- 2 minutes. All AMD Stik products were designed to use the same cross-platform machinery and tooling, saving significant time and money for a product to product set up and production.

In April alone, 20,000,000 people lost their jobs to the COVID-19 pandemic. It has caused major fallout in most of our lives and as history has proven, it will trigger additional drinking and drug use. COVID-19 has added to this underlying mental and emotional issues of addiction. The stress, loneliness, depression, boredom, isolation, economics with loss of income and mounting debt, all becoming issues for many drowning their losses, all of which often are closely linked with substance abuse.
