The company has hard assets which include prototyping machinery, tooling, electronic equipment, test equipment, and computer software and hardware. Computer-controlled precision manufacturing equipment and its tooling have been purchased to provide the capability to rapid prototype
and to supply initial production quantities of disposable tips. The company has obtained high-end electronic equipment and software to generate and analyze test signals. The prototypes are constructed from standard modern components and engineered to be easily built and assembled without
the development of special processes. The prototypes will be optimized by comparative testing on tissue substitutes (phantoms), animal tissues, and actual patient examinations. The components of the bioprobe system that contact the cervix will be manufactured and assembled at very low cost so that the tip will be disposable. Two or three styles of tip will be built as necessary to fit a range of canal sizes, depending on such factors as previous births.
The Preciva system will incorporate all signal generation and data capture within the handpiece and connect wirelessly to a standard desktop or laptop. This will make the system portable, inexpensive, and available for other office functions. The bioprobe system handpiece will have a modern profile and in addition, the disposable tip has a high-tech appearance. The color graphics generated by the bioprobe software will further enhance the bioprobe’s marketability.
