Pictor Offer - an update

Three weeks ago I wrote to the subscribers to my Newsletters who had shown interest in our Pictor Offer. In it I reminded them that the lockdown here shows us Covid19 is worldwide and has far from disappeared, even in New Zealand.

Three weeks ago I wrote to the subscribers to my Newsletters who had shown interest in our Pictor Offer. In it I reminded them that the lockdown here shows us Covid19 is worldwide and has far from disappeared, even in New Zealand.
Well here we are (in Auckland) in lockdown again. So I thought it appropriate to update all of you who subscribe to my Opportunities newsletters, with much of the information I included in the email mentioned above.
Australian connection
First you’d be interested to know we’ve extended this Offer to Australia investors via my contacts there. This will be live in the next few days.
And with more, and larger, qualifying “Wholesale Investors” in Australia, I expect this will make a big contribution to shortly completing this capital raising round.
Other news
Meanwhile developments since my last Newsletter include the following:
Dr Tadd S. Lazarus has joined their team as Chief Medical Officer.  As CMO at Roche Diagnostics, Dr Lazarus oversaw the successful development of a specialised diagnostic test kit for HIV.
The business is planning a clinical trial in New Zealand that will show how the Pictor test could be used to identify persons at the border who do not require 14 days isolation, because;

  • they are antibody positive as a consequence of being either vaccinated;
  • or were previously infected, and are now free of the infection.

Such an allowance will benefit everyone; including visitors here as well as New Zealanders wishing to travel outside the country for short term business or holidays.
The Company is now calling for volunteers who are willing to provide a blood sample to participate in this trial.  Volunteers are required who have:

  • Previously been infected but now recovered (30 persons).
  • Vaccinated with first dose. (30 persons).
  • Vaccinated with both doses (30 persons).
  • Neither been infected nor vaccinated (120 persons).
Interested volunteers should contact Howard Moore. His email and phone are given below.
Pictor’s manufacturing capacity has been markedly expanded with the successful commissioning of the iONE1200 arrayer imported from Germany. 
Pictor’s patent for the multiplex COVID-19 antibody test has now entered the PCT phase, which will provide international protection to 150 countries that are party to the PCT treaty.
Meanwhile the patent has been approved by the U.S. Patent Office as one of a limited number of COVID-19 patents that will be fast tracked for approval in the U.S. – and that’s in as little as 6 months instead of the usual 2 to 3 years.
Pictor and German company Scienion, have entered into a collaboration by which Scienion’s CL2 reader will be sold to U.S. labs as part of the platform for using Pictor’s COVID-19 antibody test. The companies will jointly promote the platform to the U.S. market.
