How is Check4™ different from other pathogen tests?
Check4™ is new patented technology that moves medical testing from a chemical reaction to a digital readout. It uses electronic nanosensors to measure precise levels of micro-electric currents that pass through viruses and bacteria. Each disease carries a digital signature, which now can be quickly identified in saliva and decoded through a small portable reader. When used, the reader transmits results wirelessly to the user’s smartphone in minutes.
In May 2021, this proprietary and patented technology moved from development stages at Purdue University to the commercialization stage, where new devices soon will be manufactured by the millions for governments, health care systems and corporations.
IdentifySensors Biologics and Purdue University have partnered to create Check4™ — a highly accurate, over-the-counter device intended for anyone quickly self-test for multiple diseases. Anywhere, anytime.
The system is a major breakthrough because it does not rely on the current chemical-based hospital tests developed 50 years ago. Instead, patented nanosensors electronically pinpoint viruses and bacteria with ultra-high accuracy in minutes. The system requires no doctors, labs or high costs. Tests are performed entirely at home or on the go. Results appear on a smartphone in about 10 minutes.
Each test cartridge is intended to cost less than $25. This patented technology is close to FDA EUA approval. However, IdentifySensors has started marketing the product to corporations and governments that do not require FDA approval for testing their employees or citizens.
This new digital technology is intended to significantly disrupt the $50-billion chemical testing industry. It is intended that consumers soon will have a testing laboratory in their home medicine cabinets to test for multiple diseases.

In Partnership with Purdue University
When IdentifySensors developed the concept for digital disease testing, the company knew it needed a world-class academic institution to verify the discovery and move the technology to the next step.
In 2019, IdentifySensors partnered with the world-renowned Department of Inflammation, Immunology and Infectious Diseases at Purdue University. The department’s leading scientists have personally overseen the research and have served as company advisors ever since.
In the spring of 2021, IdentifySensors moved the technology from the research lab the commercialization stage, where the work as Purdue is being optimized for large-scale, roll-to-roll manufacturing.
Proprietary and Patented Technology
Soon into the development stage, researchers realized the technology could serve as an all-new disruptive platform that could forever change the medical testing industry. Check4™ currently has several utility patents, with others pending.

Results In Hand
To use the test, download the smartphone app and complete the form. Simply place saliva into the reader. Minutes later, the test intends to show results on the smartphone app. That’s it. It was developed so the reader can be used multiple times, by multiple people utilizing different cartridges for different infections.
What does IdentifySensors Biologics do?
Check4™ is intended to be a fast, accurate and affordable saliva self-test for COVID-19 and a host of other infections. Results are displayed within minutes on a smartphone app, with accuracy that far exceeds current rapid home tests.
How is Check4-COVID different from all other COVID tests?
New CDC research shows that current rapid home tests give false results more than 50 percent of the time. Check4-COVID is intended to an over-the-counter rapid test with the accuracy of a PCR test. Reducing false negatives rapidly by this margin will be critical to slowing the spread and allowing people to return to normal.
Do healthcare professionals need to administer the test?
No. Check4-COVID™ is intended to be a simple self-test, similar to a home DNA test. Check4-COVID™ allows consumers to test their saliva on a device that connects to a smartphone. Results appear on the app within minutes in the privacy of a user’s home.
How does the test work?
Consumers buy a small, simple device and download the free smartphone app. A saliva sample is placed in the device, and the results appear within minutes on the app. It is intended that inexpensive replaceable cartridges will allow endless, affordable testing on each device.
How accurate is Check4-COVID™?
Following FDA approval, Check4-COVID™ intends to meet the gold-standard in hospital-grade molecular COVID testing with minimal false positives. This is significantly better than current home rapid tests.
Why does the test notify health authorities?
By law, all COVID test results must be reported to health authorities to help manage the pandemic. Check4-COVID™ is an electronic-based, self-test that fulfills legal reporting requirements automatically through smartphones.
Why does the test use a smartphone app?
Chemical-based tests often rely on visual indicators. Check4-COVID™ uses an electronic circuit, which enables a signal to be sent to smartphones. The app then reports results to health authorities, which is required by law.
What if I don’t have a smartphone?
The smartphone app allows multiple users on a single device. This enables family members who do not have smartphones to use the device and app belonging to someone with a smartphone.
Do I have to buy multiple devices to test other family members?
No. A family can share the same device. The smartphone app is intended to allow multiple users so family members can share the same app and device, while interchanging different test cartridges.
Is the Smartphone app HIPAA compliant? What happens to my personal information?
By law, all test results must be reported to state and federal health authorities. All information collected by the IdentifySensors app is confidential and shared only with government agencies that require it. Some test results are de-identified, meaning that names are removed from the test results. All data is treated by the same high standards as secure hospital records. The app is securely encrypted and fully HIPAA compliant.
Can I turn off the reporting function of the app?
No. By law, all test results for contagious diseases must be reported to state, and federal health authorities. All information collected by the Check4-COVID™ app is encrypted, confidential, and follows high hospital standards for HIPAA-compliant privacy.
