About Lexington Biosciences, Inc. (CSE: LNB / OTCQB: LXGTF)
Lexington Biosciences, Inc. is a medical device company developing the HeartSentry, a new non-invasive diagnostic device to measure and monitor cardiovascular health by assessing the function of a person’s vascular endothelium - the vital innermost lining of the cardiovascular system. Currently, the standard of care is measurement using expensive external ultrasound by a highly trained technician. The HeartSentry core technology was developed at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory over a fifteen-year R&D period involving many research studies and product iterations resulting in a portfolio of multiple pending and issued patents licensed to the company. Our aim is to make HeartSentry accurate, quick, and cost effective so it can become the standard of care for cardiologists, general practitioners, and ultimately patients for first line evaluation of a person’s cardiovascular health.
