Hotzone Solutions today announced a partnership with ProQares, a leading provider of testing, evaluation and certification services for protective equipment against chemical hazards; to deploy ChemTox in numerous countries throughout its international network.

This partnership will accelerate the deployment of this break-through technology and ensure that governments and other organisations charged with protecting the public from a chemical weapons attack have the most sophisticated tools available.

ChemTox is the first of its kind point-of-care diagnostic test for human exposure to chemical poisons in the blood, including Soman, Sarin, Tabun, and VX, and is capable of detecting low-level chemical nerve agent exposure in 10 minutes or less with only a simple finger-stick blood sample.

The partnership with HZS complements ProQares’ mission to contribute to the protection of humans against toxic threats by providing fast and reliable test results.
