Company Summary

We have a line of devices for sinus and nasal health and diagnostics. They target 120 million sufferers of sinusitis, rhinitis and the colds and are FDA cleared for professional and home use. Kids can't use drugs and there are problems with currently available nasal wash solutions. There is also development around the integration of viral assays in our disposable wash head. This makes the testing (flu) more accurate, quicker and safer.
