Further update re Paraytec Limited

Braveheart Investment Group (AIM: BRH), is pleased to provide an update concerning progress with proof of concept for a COVID-19 test that Paraytec Limited is conducting with the University of Sheffield.

As announced on 5 October 2020, proof of concept was achieved for the Optical Detection System.  Since then the focus of the Proof of Concept trials have has been on the Capture & Signal Generation Modules. 

Braveheart is now pleased to confirm that Proof of Concept has now been achieved for the Capture & Signal Generation Modules, which successfully completes the Proof of Concept trials. The directors of Braveheart believe that this test will be the first to combine a rapid result with very high detection sensitivity. Work will now turn toward the acquisition of clinically relevant data, to facilitate optimisation of the functional capabilities of the test, together with a programme of product refinement and development. Meanwhile, regulatory approval for live virus trials and the acquisition of clinical data is being sought.

Trevor Brown, CEO Braveheart Investment Group, commented "This is a phenomenal achievement for all concerned. The inspirational leadership and innovative brilliance of Professor Carl Smythe and his talented team have resulted in proof of concept in a little over four months"
