BioIQ® Diagnostics believes that the future of disease management and healthcare lies in disease prevention. The most effective means of preventing disease is by detecting it. Disease diagnosis limits its progression by allowing treatment to begin sooner. And of course, the sooner treatment begins, the more effective and less expensive it is. In fact, there are numerous causative pathogens or initial forms of disease that can be detected early and treated to prevent or delay the severe medical conditions that arise from them:
HIV can be treated with antiretrovirals to avoid AIDS.
HCV (Hepatitis C Virus) and HBV (Hepatitis B Virus) can be addressed by direct-acting antivirals and other drugs to prevent serious liver diseases such as cirrhosis and liver cancer.
Treponema pallidum can be eliminated by antibiotics to halt syphilis before it enters the tertiary stage which brings severe cardiovascular and neurological complications, among other problems.
Earlier stage tumors can be managed with a variety of therapies and surgery before they grow and progress into the later stages with higher mortality rates.
Additionally, people being aware of their infection allows them to reduce the spread of disease; this is particularly important for diseases with long asymptomatic periods such as HIV, viral hepatitis and syphilis.
To prevent disease, fast, accurate and easy diagnostics are crucial. BioIQ® Diagnostics has made breakthroughs in rapid testing diagnostics that increases their speed, precision, availability and effectiveness in the form of our True Dot Technology™. BioIQ® Diagnostics has developed a 60 second, 99.9% specific and sensitive rapid testing diagnostic called the Rapid Test Kits™.
