First – how would you define product? (go through different teams)
We initially believed we were a visualization company with a novel approach to characterizing cancer Create value by enumerating and characterizing the aggressiveness of CTCsTarget customers in hospital (i.e., pathologist, oncologist, patients) Use a CLIA-based service model to deliver value to customersUse direct sales channels to reach customers in the hospital
Leading up to this slide, we need to be developing the case for a pivot into a cell culture company. John didn’t seem clear on how/why we decided this.
Change technology column to: Dead vs live cellsThe point of this slide is simply that right now culturing is a unique proposition. Do not focus on all competitors or what they do or how we will compete. Make the simple point of for now we have a unique proposition.
Value Proposition of Cell CulturingCell culture node in the middleBubbles appearing around showing value prop of cell culturingSimilar to mammoptics slide 19

Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs): Initial
IdeaCirculating tumor cells Oncologists & Pathologists Cancer cells that have Does my patient have any detached from the CTCs? tumor and are How aggressive are they? circulating in the blood stream Capture and grow CTCs Video technology to characterize aggressiveness 5 5

The Problem & Our Solution
De-mineralization X Problem: No products that reverses demineralization Our solution: effectively Remineralization peptides that restore lost mineral
