Todos Medical, Ltd. (OTCQB: TOMDF), an in vitro diagnostics company focused on distributing comprehensive solutions for COVID-19 screening, diagnosis and immune support, as well as developing blood tests for early detection of cancer and Alzheimer’s disease, today announced the successful installation of automated lab equipment and completion of training for a lab client in Brooklyn, NY. The implementation of the Todos automation solution has expanded the lab’s processing capacity to 6,000 PCR tests per day from 500 PCR tests per day, with the potential to quickly expand to up to 12,000 PCR tests per day. The lab will be implementing EUA approved PCR testing for COVID-19 testing, as well as COVID + influenza A & B PCR testing upon request for select clients. Additionally, through the future implementation of pooling, the lab could potentially increase processing capacity to in excess of 40,000 PCR tests per day at a 4:1 ratio.
The Todos automation solution is expected to be instrumental in helping this lab client service a new contract recently entered into with the State of Kentucky to conduct testing for nursing home clients. The Company expects nursing homes to continue to conduct surveillance testing for COVID-19 for at least the next several years.
“After considerable work helping to complete the installation process, our Brooklyn lab client has successfully completed training and is now able to report PCR testing results utilizing our process,” said Gerald E. Commissiong, President & CEO of Todos Medical. “We are now focused on continuing to serve our lab clients, with a hyper-focus on helping them upgrade their saliva PCR testing capabilities to meet the needs of new testing populations that we expect will be conducting COVID testing for the foreseeable future, such as schools, skilled nursing facilities and sports & entertainment venues.”

About Todos Medical Ltd.
Founded in Rehovot, Israel with offices in New York City, Todos Medical Ltd. (OTCQB: TOMDF), engineers life-saving diagnostic solutions for the early detection of a variety of cancers. The Company’s state-of-the-art and patented Todos Biochemical Infrared Analyses (TBIA) is a proprietary cancer-screening technology using peripheral blood analysis that deploys deep examination into cancer’s influence on the immune system, looking for biochemical changes in blood mononuclear cells and plasma. Todos’ two internally-developed cancer-screening tests, TMB-1 and TMB-2, have received a CE mark in Europe. Todos recently entered into an exclusive option agreement to acquire U.S.-based medical diagnostics company Provista Diagnostics, Inc. to gain rights to its Alpharetta, Georgia-based CLIA/CAP certified lab currently performing PCR COVID testing and Provista’s proprietary commercial-stage Videssa® breast cancer blood test. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2020.
Todos is also developing blood tests for the early detection of neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease. The Lymphocyte Proliferation Test (LymPro Test™) is a diagnostic blood test that determines the ability of peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs) and monocytes to withstand an exogenous mitogenic stimulation that induces them to enter the cell cycle. It is believed that certain diseases, most notably Alzheimer’s disease, are the result of compromised cellular machinery that leads to aberrant cell cycle re-entry by neurons, which then leads to apoptosis. LymPro is unique in the use of peripheral blood lymphocytes as a surrogate for neuronal cell function, suggesting a common relationship between PBLs and neurons in the brain.
Todos has entered into distribution agreements with companies to distribute certain novel coronavirus (COVID-19) test kits. The agreements cover multiple international suppliers of PCR testing kits and related materials and supplies, as well as antibody testing kits from multiple manufacturers after completing validation of said testing kits and supplies in its partner CLIA/CAP certified laboratory in the United States. Todos has formed a strategic partnership with Integrated Health LLC to deploy mobile COVID-19 testing in the United States. Additionally, Todos has entered into a joint venture with NLC Pharma to pursue the development of diagnostic tests targeting the 3CL protease, as well as 3CL protease inhibitors that target the reproductive mechanism of coronaviruses.
