Vox Biomedical Receives Contract for Exhaled Breath Marijuana Detection

Vox Biomedical has received a new NIH contract to continue the development of breath analyzer technology for the detection of marijuana and opioids.

(PRUnderground) September 24th, 2021

Vox Biomedical announced that it has received a new contract from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to continue the development of breath analyzer technology for the detection of marijuana and opioids at the point-of-measurement using a simple exhaled breath test.

In an earlier contract, the Vox team validated the ability of this technology to detect ∆9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in a controlled laboratory setting at McLean Hospital in Belmont, MA. The preliminary data has shown that THC can be detected in the exhaled breath of impaired human subjects at sub-nanogram concentrations.

This NIH contract will expand the clinical study from marijuana to other drugs including opioids. Vox Biomedical will acquire human subject data from marijuana smokers, while demonstrating that its technology can also detect opioids in exhaled breath of recent users.

Successful results will provide a strong basis for the commercialization of Vox Biomedical technology.

Vox Biomedical will offer a drug detection instrument for real time exhaled breath drug analysis to law enforcement agencies and workplaces. Vox Biomedical is collaborating with DRAPER, a leading research and development organization in Cambridge, MA to rapidly bring this instrument to the market.
