ANCON: Fast Facts

At ANCON, our mission is to deliver innovative, inexpensive, and non-invasive technology to screen and diagnose a full range of diseases in their earliest stages with the help of Artificial Intelligence.

ANCON Medical has developed a revolutionary technology called Nanoparticle Biomarker Tagging (NBT) alongside Artificial Intelligence that enables medical professionals to detect Cancer and other diseases in a patient’s breath and introduces a promising solution in the effort to stop the spread of disease at very early stage.

Breakthrough Medical Device
The Holy Grail of Medical Diagnosis

Regardless of the disease, early diagnosis provides more opportunities for treatment and for medical personnel to act, while driving better outcomes for patients and increase survival rate.

As the “Holy Grail” of medical diagnosis technology, breath analysis delivers a simple, inexpensive way to identify minute traces of molecular volatile and semi volatile biomarkers within a Point of Care situation. Just 1 minute of breath to establish result in 7 minutes using ANCON’s Artificial Intelligence software on the cloud.

The Potential Advantages of Investment

Breakthrough Medical Device
The Technology

VOC Biomarkers for 400 diseases have been already been discovered using NBT technology.

NBT technology can deliver live results within 7 minutes using Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning within a cloud data environment from just 1 minute of patient breath.

The NBT device has potential to be a powerful tool in stopping the spread of future outbreak diseases such as Ebola.

Early detection of cancer greatly increases the chances for successful treatment and extending the life expectancy of patients.

Screening for Lung Cancer - Lung cancer has a low survival rate, but studies show that with early treatment, 57% of patients can survive for longer than five years, whereas only 9% survive if treatment occurs after symptoms emerge.

NBT can CHANGE this cycle of events and make a difference!

Breakthrough Medical Device
Our Solution

ANCON has developed a medical desk-top device called Nanoparticle Biomarker Tagging (NBT) for use in clinical environments and designed to detect the presence of trace amounts of VOC biomarkers of disease in the breath of patients, it can however also be used on head space of blood or urine to detect as an alternative method of screening and diagnosis, without needs for additional samples.

The patent-protected core technology has been developed exclusively for the medical market and the high sensitivity medical device -- coupled with machine learning software -- enables healthcare professions to screen and diagnose cancers and diseases at an earlier stage, in a quick, non-invasive manner while improving outcomes for patients.

The NBT opens an array of new screening and diagnostics, alongside more traditional methods and by using the NBT technology it offers mobility and multi-dimensional capabilities on a Global scale.

Breakthrough Medical Device
Our Artificial Intelligence Solution (AI)

AI is an essential element of NBT technology. The breath, even a healthy person, contains thousands of different chemical compounds. These compounds contain a wealth of information about the state of health of a person, and identifies diseases including cancers, your current health condition, and functioning of various organs.

AI is a superior analytical tool that does what humans cannot do in such a limited time frame.

The AI completes its calculations in a split second and a clinician can enjoy the diagnosis of a disease in question and all complementary information on the general state of health of the patient within 7 to 10 minutes.

The AI brain learns every time data is assimilated from a patient, and it learns faster than the human brain. Instead of years of human education, the AI brain requires hours of machine learning time.

AI is at the core of NBT technology. All data will be stored in a specialised secure framework and available only for the justified medical use.

Medical Industry Applications

The Problem
Advanced early detection of a range of cancers and diseases are needed to help curtail the spread of disease and drive better outcomes for doctors, medical staff, and patients. Lung Cancer especially continues to plague patients in the US, EU, Southeast Asia, South America and China. No Point of Care Screening technology for early stages of Lung Cancer is currently available.
