Along with a default set of products, there is a space for premium line like chromosomal age tests, toxicity, oxidative stress, inflammation, etc. This full suite will become available on BurstIQ healthcare marketplace and be based on BurstIQ monetization engine - BIQ token.

Upon expansion, the blockchain platform will implement its advanced machine intelligence layer and offer such platform to FlowMetric's customers. Eventually, this flow will create a secure and auditable chain of custody of clients' samples and data.

We're thrilled to partner with FlowMetric. Our partnership with them will create the first cryptocurrency-enabled personalized medicine marketplace for consumers. In addition, we will be able to successfully demonstrate how blockchain solves the institutional data challenges impacting the biopharma sector. It opens the door for an entirely new way of doing business.
