Richard A. Yost Ph.D., Scientific Advisor

Dr. Yost, Col. Allen R. & Margaret G. Crow Professor and Head of Analytical Chemistry at the University of Florida received his B.S. degree in Chemistry from the University of Arizona in 1974. In 1975 he pursued an NSF graduate fellowship at Michigan State University focusing on electronics and computerized instrumentation. He received his Ph.D. in 1979 and assumed the position of Assistant Professor at the University of Florida and went on to become head of the Analytical Chemistry Division.

Dr. Yost’s research has involved over 100 graduate students funded by over $40 million in research grants, and has published over 160 papers and 16 patents. Over $30 billion worth of instruments have been sold based on these patents.

He serves as a member of the Florida Board of Governors (Regents) and as the Chair of the Advisory Council of Faculty Senates of Florida.

He served as Treasurer and Secretary of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry, and on the editorial boards of The Journal of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry and The International Journal of Mass Spectrometry.

Prof. Hossam Haick, Consultant

Dr. Haick is a full Professor in Chemical Engineering and Nanotechnology at the Technion Israel Institute of Technology and an expert in the field of nanotechnology and non-invasive disease diagnosis.  Dr. Haick is the recipient of the prestigious Marie Curie Excellence Award, ERC Award, and the FP-7 and Horizon 2020 consortium Awards. He is also the recipient of more than 56 international honors and prizes for his achievements. Prof. Haick has published over 170 articles and serves on the editorial board of several peer-reviewed journals, and is a senior scientific advisory member of several national and international companies and institutes. Prof. Haick’s ground-breaking research has led to the development of the NA-NOSE nanotechnology-based breath test technology for detecting biomarkers of disease. Certain disease conditions produce chemicals called volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which easily evaporate into the air and produce a discernible scent profile. The Na-NOSE chip detects the unique “signature” of VOCs in exhaled breath. As a consultant to Breathtec, Prof. Haick will guide the company’s development of the NA-NOSE disease detection system and design the clinical trials to be undertaken by the company.


Michael T. Costanzo, Ph.D., Chief Technical Officer

Dr. Costanzo enjoys a passion for science that has directed his career path firmly into the field of analytical chemistry. Over the past five years he has investigated a variety of advanced experimental methodologies and instrumentation with the Yost Research Group at the University of Florida. During this period he utilized UV spectroscopy to help in standardizing procedures for manufacturing respiratory medications, employed novel ion mobility spectrometric techniques and devices to analyze exhaled breath, and performed multiple metabolomics studies of melanoma. Through his efforts, he acquired a vast knowledge of analytical techniques and methodologies and an immense desire for scientific progress.

Previously, Costanzo obtained his Bachelor of Science in chemistry at the State University of New York (Buffalo). During this period he conducted research under Dr. Troy Wood utilizing mass spectrometry to examine products of enzymatic protein digestion in the interest of studying metabolic markers of autism in children. Upon graduation in 2010 he moved to the University of Florida for Ph.D. studies and as a result of his efforts has recently joined with Breathtec Biomedical to propel his own bioanalytical research through the development of revolutionary clinical devices utilizing his background in ion mobility, mass spectrometry, and exhaled breath analysis.

Breathtec Biomedical Provides Corporate Overview


-- Company offers update of events and outlook for near term opportunity


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – October 17, 2016 – Breathtec BioMedical, Inc(CSE: BTH.CN) (CNSX: BTH) (CSE: BTH) (XFRA: BTI) (OTCQB: BTHCF) (the “Company” or “Breathtec”), a medical diagnostics company focused on developing, in-licensing and commercializing proprietary, innovative and best-in-class breath analysis devices for the early detection of infectious and life threatening diseases wishes to address recent corporate events and to provide an update regarding its immediate outlook and future plans.


In response to recent volatility in its share price, the Company notesthat fluctuations are an example of development stage market volatility which in Management’s opinion should be viewed in the context of the Company’s underlying financial health and strength of its product portfolio. Breathtec maintains a healthy working capital position of $1.3M. Additionally, management of the Company have voluntarily escrowed a significant number of shares with no insider sales having occurred or contemplated.


Breathtec’s technology portfolio continues to move ahead with all licensing and development agreements in-place and a number of ongoing achievements and development phases underway. A brief summary of recent and ongoing activities is summarized below. 


FAIMS Technology:

Breathtec continues to progress its flagship FAIMS technology with the recent completion of a V2 prototype breathalyzer design. The latest design has significant advances over the previous prototype including larger dynamic range and improved efficiency in the square waveform generator, greater sensitivity achievable by the detector, improvements in the design, implementation of the novel ionization source, and is overall more than 10X smaller than the V1 prototype.The current design is well under development and includes features to allow for the addition of an onboard processor, touch screen and rechargeable battery in a handheld device configuration.


NaNose Technology:

The Company anticipates receiving requisite IRB regulatory approval in order to commence clinical studies in Surrey, BC, Canada this month. The study has been designed to determine if the NaNose technology can identify differences in the breath signatures of patients with bacterial infections versus patients with viral infections. The ability to differentiate between bacterial versus viral infections at the Point of Care is anticipated to greatly assist physicians with treatment recommendations which could significantly and positively impact the excessive prescribing and resulting overuse of antibiotic-based treatments.


Regulatory Pathway:

Management has engaged regulatory consultants with extensiveexperience in medical device and in vitro diagnostics strategies to evaluate potential regulatory options to propel both the FAIMS and NaNose technology platforms to market. The Company has furtherengaged experienced product development consultants to initiate the design controls, and quality systems processes to meet regulatory approval and to lead the establishment of product manufacturing protocols as a precursor to commercialization.


Professional Collaboration:

Dr. Michael Costanzo, Breathtec’s CTO recently gave a well-received presentation Developing a Point-of-Care Device for Breath Analysis Utilizing FAIMS and FAIMS/MS,” to a prestigious group of leading experts in the field of breath analysis in Zurich, Switzerland. At the event, Dr. Costanzo affirmedBreathtec anticipates completion of a prototype of the FAIMS device in Q4 of 2016 and will work alongside our partner to advance the technology towards the clinic.” Dr. Costanzo’s presentation can be found here:


Company CEO, Guy LaTorre comments, “We earnestly appreciate the continued interest and support of all our stakeholders, partners, affiliates and shareholders alike. As such, I wanted to take this opportunity to recap our continued technical achievements as we continue to be motivated daily with overwhelmingly positive feedback as regards the need for a Point-of-Care device such as ours as a means to save countless healthcare dollars and untold numbers of lives in the foreseeable future. These factors compel us to move ahead as quickly as possible with this exciting endeavor and we sincerely thank our supporters for the means to do so.”
