Nutra Pharma Corp., a biotechnology company that owns rights to intellectual property related to the development of drugs for HIV and Multiple Sclerosis, has announced that it has created a new wholly-owned subsidiary for the purpose of marketing diagnostic test kits designed for the rapid isolation and identification of infectious diseases such as Tuberculosis (TB) and Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare (MAI). Nutra Pharma acquired the rights to these diagnostic test kits in a definitive agreement signed with NanoLogix, Inc. (Pink Sheets:NNLX). The new subsidiary is wholly owned by Nutra Pharma and has been formed as a Nevada corporation under the name Designer Diagnostics, Inc.
"Nutra Pharma's business plan is very straightforward," commented Rik J Deitsch, Chief Executive Officer of Nutra Pharma. "We are creating two distinct areas within Nutra Pharma: medical devices and drug discovery. Designer Diagnostics is a company that will market and distribute medical devices and other technology, providing a revenue stream that will help fund our ongoing drug discovery, which is being conducted by ReceptoPharm," he added. "This allows Nutra Pharma to utilize our strengths in bringing a solid business foundation to biotechnology," he concluded.
The Company has also announced a new comprehensive website for this medical device division at www.designerdiagnostics.com.
