BLOS# Pilot Study

BLOS# Method

A simple clinical test is being developed for use in diagnosing patients with chronic and acute BLOS.  Currently, Flow Cytometry is the only method to measure the %ROS-positive blood cells, but the estimated cost is greater than $500/sample.  The BLOS# method provides the same information as the Flow Cytometry method at a fraction of the cost (see table below).  Compared to tests available for diagnosing diabetes, the laboratory cost of the BLOS# method is comparable.  The three conventional diagnostic methods evaluate symptoms of diabetes (AIC, plasma glucose, oral glucose), while the BLOS# method evaluates the causative agent (ROS-positive blood cells).  It is anticipated that the BLOS# method will be approved as a Lifestyle choice and then a Disease Diagnostic, which will make it the preferred blood test for evaluating human health.  The BLOS# method may also be part of a new, comprehensive approach for Personalized Medicine.

The BLOS# method uses a simple laboratory protocol that compares ROS production of the sample to a maximally induced subsample.  Raw sample data is processed by a proprietary and patent-pending algorithm that is integrated in software hosted on a cloud server.  The BLOS# value is calculated from the input data and provided to the Medical Laboratory and subsequently to the physician and patient.


Non-Provisional U.S. Patent Application is currently in review

Title: Methods and Systems for Controlling Oxidative Stress in Humans and Animals

14/929,124 (2015-10-30)

Update October 8, 2016:  The Patent (pending) was assigned to Western Autotroph Company LLC DBA HemaGnosis.

February, 2018: The USPTO announced that the BLOS# patent application will be allowed and a patent issued in the coming weeks.


Update December 2016:  HemaGnosis started a new Crowdfunding campaign to raise $17,000 needed for a pilot-study conducted by Colorado State University.  This pilot-study will evaluate the new BLOS# test for patients that are normal weight, overweight, and Type 2 Diabetics.  Rewards include a free future FDA approved BLOS# test and BLOS Eval of 5 food items with donations of $25 or more.  Use the following link to make a donation:
