Organization and Business Organization and Business
ProPhase Labs, Inc. (“ProPhase”, “we”, “us”, “our” or the “Company”) is a diversified company that offers a range of services including genomics testing, diagnostic testing and contract manufacturing. We are also focused on licensing, developing and commercializing novel drugs, dietary supplements, compounds and diagnostics. We currently conduct our operations through two operating segments: diagnostic services and consumer products.
Until late fiscal year 2020, we were engaged primarily in the research, development, manufacture, distribution, marketing and sale of OTC consumer healthcare products and dietary supplements in the United States. However, commencing in December 2020, we also began offering COVID-19 and prepared to validate other Respiratory Pathogen Panel (“RPP”) molecular tests through our diagnostic services business. In August 2021 we began offering personal genomics products and services and in July 2022 we began focusing on the licensing, development and commercialization of novel drugs, dietary supplements, compounds and diagnostics.
Our wholly owned subsidiary, ProPhase Diagnostics, Inc. (“ProPhase Diagnostics”), which was formed on October 9, 2020, offers a broad array of clinical diagnostic and testing services at its Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (“CLIA”) certified laboratories including polymerase chain reaction (“PCR”) testing for COVID-19. Critical to COVID-19 testing, we provide fast turnaround times for results. We also offer rapid antigen testing for COVID-19. On October 23, 2020, we acquired Confucius Plaza Medical Laboratory Corp. (“CPM”), which included a non-operating but certified 4,000 square foot CLIA accredited laboratory located in Old Bridge, New Jersey. In December 2020, we expanded our diagnostic service business with the build-out of a second, larger CLIA accredited laboratory in Garden City, New York. Operations at this second facility commenced in January 2021.
On August 10, 2021, we acquired Nebula Genomics, Inc. (“Nebula”), a privately owned personal genomics company, through our new wholly owned subsidiary, ProPhase Precision Medicine, Inc. (“ProPhase Precision”) (see Note 3, Business Acquisitions). ProPhase Precision focuses on genomics sequencing technologies, a comprehensive method for analyzing entire genomes, including the genes and chromosomes in DNA. The data obtained from genomic sequencing can be used to help identify inherited disorders and tendencies, help predict disease risk, help identify expected drug response, and characterize genetic mutations, including those that drive cancer progression.
Our wholly owned subsidiary, ProPhase BioPharma, Inc. (“PBIO”) was formed on June 28, 2022, for the licensing, development and commercialization of novel drugs, dietary supplements and compounds beginning with Equivir (dietary supplement) and Equivir G (Rx). In July 2022, PBIO announced a second licensing agreement for two small molecule PIM kinase inhibitors, Linebacker LB-1 and LB-2, with plans to pursue development and commercialization of LB-1 as a cancer co-therapy.
In January 2023, the Company acquired exclusive rights to the BE-Smart Esophageal Pre-Cancer Diagnostic Screening Test and related intellectual property assets.
Our wholly owned subsidiary, Pharmaloz Manufacturing, Inc. (“PMI”), is a full-service contract manufacturer and private label developer of a broad range of non-GMO, organic and natural-based cough drops and lozenges and OTC drug and dietary supplement products.
We also develop and market dietary supplements under the TK Supplements® brand.
