BioDtech, Inc. (BDTI) was formed in September 2003 to accelerate the development of technologically advanced products geared toward the endotoxin market. Three key factors differentiate BDTI from other organizations involved in the detection of endotoxin:
Shortly after its founding in 2003, BioDtech conducted extensive marketing research in the existing endotoxin marketplace. We discovered an opportunity existed to develop new technology based on existing patented research (Factor C Peptide Reagent). BDTI negotiated a license agreement with the National University of Singapore (NUS) for the exclusive worldwide licensing rights to develop specific research products and technology as related to endotoxin detection, neutralization and removal.
In addition to this partnership, BDTI has begun to scope out strategic partnerships with other biopharmaceutical, pharmaceutical and medical device companies that could utilize our technology with their existing portfolio of products. In the years ahead, BDTI anticipates that our technology will possibly change forever the way in which infectious disease management is practiced.
