Business and Organization and Composition of certain Financial Statement Caption [Abstract]  


We are a multi-national pharmaceutical and diagnostics company that seeks to establish industry-leading positions in large and rapidly growing medical markets by leveraging our discovery, development and commercialization expertise and our novel and proprietary technologies. We are developing a range of solutions to diagnose, treat and prevent various conditions, including molecular diagnostics tests, laboratory developed tests, point-of-care tests, and proprietary pharmaceuticals and vaccines. We plan to commercialize these solutions on a global basis in large and high growth markets, including emerging markets. We own established pharmaceutical platforms in Spain, Chile and Mexico, which are generating revenue and which we expect to generate positive cash flow and facilitate future market entry for our products currently in development. We also operate a specialty active pharmaceutical ingredients (“APIs”) manufacturer in Israel, which is currently generating revenue and positive cash flow, and which we expect to play a valuable role in the development of our pipeline of peptoids and other molecules for our proprietary molecular diagnostic and therapeutic products. We continue to actively explore opportunities to acquire complementary pharmaceuticals, compounds, technologies, and businesses.

We are incorporated in Delaware and our principal executive offices are located in leased offices in Miami, Florida. We lease office and lab space in Jupiter and Miramar, Florida, which is where our molecular diagnostics research and development and oligonucleotide research and development operations are based, respectively. We lease office, manufacturing, research and development and warehouse space in Woburn, Massachusetts for our point-of-care diagnostics business, and in Nesher, Israel for our API business. Our Chilean operations are located in leased offices and a leased warehouse facility in Santiago, Chile. Our Mexican operations are based in owned offices, manufacturing facilities and in a leased warehouse facility in Guadalajara, Mexico. Our Spanish operations are based in owned offices in Barcelona, Spain and in an owned manufacturing facility in Banyoles, Spain.
