WellMetrix has filed or is in the process of filing, various patent applications for proprietary chemistry and immunoassay formulations including but not limited to the basic concept of the WellMetrix product, and including up to 12 biomarkers designed to create a comprehensive picture of an individual's metabolic state.
We also have other patent applications in development for several of the bioassays present on the WellMetrix panels.
We are in the final stages of U.S. national phase and expect to have a patent issued in mid-2018.
Wellness Panel – USSN 13/812,220, USSN 61/367,486
As part of the asset purchase of Wellness Indicators, Inc. in August 2013, WellMetris was to be re-assigned the patent application “Wellness Panel”, which had been previously assigned to the now-defunct Wellness Indicators.
The application describes the health and wellness test panel and a basic concept of using urinalysis to assess metabolic status. Andrew Dahl, as named inventor, has agreed to assign his rights to WellMetris, LLC. This filing is expected to issue as a US patent in early spring 2017.
CUPRAC Reducing Antioxidant Capacity Assay – USSN 62/116,766
As part of the asset purchase of Wellness Indicators, Inc. in August 2013, WellMetris was to be re-assigned a license to “CUPRAC”, previously licensed to the now-defunct Wellness Indicators.
The application describes a specific reagent and reaction to elicit a semi-quantitative measure of an individual’s ability to absorb free radicals. However, the dry chemistry was significantly reworked by WellMetris scientists over the course of 2014, and a new patent app has been submitted by Kohn & Associates under the application number appearing in the above header.
This is an example of an individual assay where chemistry and its use is filed as its own patent.
Smartphone Urinalysis Device – USSN 62/136,764
A provisional patent was filed March 23, 2015, by its inventor, Andrew Dahl. The claim describes a peripheral device that is powered and controlled by an Android or Apple smartphone, specifically to gather, analyze and compile wellness data similar to the original Wellness Panel patent application.
Urine Collection Device – USSN 62/154,892
A provisional application was filed April 20, 2015, by its inventor, Andrew Dahl. The claim describes a novel urine sample collection device that is used to precisely saturate test strips without creating a biohazard. Prototypes for testing and focus groups have been created.
