REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Biotricity Inc. (OTCQB:BTCY), a medical diagnostic and consumer healthcare technology company dedicated to delivering innovative, biometric remote monitoring solutions, has witnessed a phenomenal fourth quarter; the Company achieved 510(k) clearance for its Bioflux device with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and it successfully raised approximately $2.5 million in a registered direct offering. The Company is on schedule to bring Bioflux to market within the next quarter and has already expanded its research and development efforts to capitalize on artificial intelligence (AI), which could be used to optimize its proprietary remote patient monitoring (RPM) platform for future use.
“The FDA clearance is a monumental milestone for our company and allows us to bring the Bioflux solution to market and start generating revenue,” said Waqaas Al-Siddiq, Biotricity’s Founder and CEO.
Shortly after announcing that it had achieved 510(k) clearance last December, the Company closed a registered direct financing with existing shareholders. The proceeds are being used to accelerate Biotricity’s go-to-market commercialization plan, including on-boarding new sales staff, expanding strategic partnerships, developing the company’s brand and corporate positioning, and starting sales of Bioflux.

“Through their investment, our existing shareholders have shown confidence in the platform we are developing and have enabled us for rapid progress,” said Al-Siddiq.
While commercialization of Bioflux is underway, Biotricity is expanding its R&D effort to include AI in its RPM platform to help improve detection quality and patient outcomes while driving down costs.

“We believe Artificial Intelligence will form a mainstay of biotechnology, and Biotricity is developing a cutting-edge platform utilizing AI technology,” said Al-Siddiq.
Mr. Al-Siddiq continues to offer informative and directional industry perspectives in leading health IT and medical technology publications. Mr. Al-Siddiq wrote an article for Internet of Things North America discussing the emergence of the patient-consumer. He also wrote an article for Inside Big Data explaining how AI could move healthcare towards a preventive system, asserting: “AI’s ability to learn from experience and offer personalized and predictive feedback to patients and physicians is its greatest value proposition for preventive healthcare systems which improve diagnostics while catalyzing patient adherence through engagement.”
