Work done and new markets

American and European patent applications filed. Prototype alpha with preliminary clinical testing results. New markets not tapped include: (1) healthcare field masking the patients, (2) mass transportation industries such as: airline, subways, bus, trains, (3) enclosed populations such as daycare centers, college dorms, military installations, (4) employees exposed to public such as postal workers, mall
