We invented Polymodal Biological Sensor (PBS) technology to provide reliable zoonotic vector detection and reporting to appropriate parties in the healthcare industry. Zoonotic vectors are pests ( insects and animals) which carry diseases that can be transferred to humans. Reducing human suffering is the pinnacle goal for PBS technology. Healthcare markets include hotels, university, military housing, cruise ships, transit quarters, hospitals and healthcare recovery facilities, to name a few. In addition, PBS networks can support global health programs such as the One Health Initiative (http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/about.php).
PBS technology also benefits the Ag Biotech industry. High-value assets such as food crops and stored food products will suffer much less economic loss when protected by a PBS sensor network. The PBS detection method offers more accurate pest detection results and near real-time reporting to pest management professionals (PMP) and other appropriate parties.
PBS systems offer continuous electronic monitoring to many industry sectors. Forestry and turf grass are further examples of potential beneficiaries of early detection and reporting of specific pests.
We are a US-based collaboration of scientists and researchers in multiple disciplines. We apply the best R&D practices to prototyping PBS detection technology for our customers. Providing polymodal detection networks and reporting detection of each specific pest target is the core competency at Global PBS™.
All PBS networks (worldwide) report target acquisition data to the Global Learning System (GLS) component of our PBS system for validation and automated reporting. Target pest data is archived along with detection site environmental conditions to be used as benchmarks for future pest detection queries.
Commercial application of PBS detection can be applied to many markets around the world. The common thread is ‘early detection and reporting’. Our passion is reduction of human suffering . Therefore, R&D in healthcare markets will occupy a continuous and permanent parallel track with all other development.
PBS systems offer proprietary detection technology along with the option to immediately disperse the preferred pest treatment for the target species. Existing systems used by pest management professionals (PMP) and others can exploit the benefits of PBS technology through strategic partnerships; enhancing operational capabilities to deliver better results to their customers.
When humans are in danger the threat should be addressed as soon as possible - and shared. PBS networks can collect pest detection data from locations around the world in the normal course of business. Therefore, we will become a key asset in support of 1st Responders for imminent threats and potential pandemics.
We plan to provide forecasting and modeling reports of dangerous pest concentrations and movements to global health organizations and other interested parties.
