TPI research note on Integumen plc (SKIN.L) & Modern Water plc (MWG.L).

The technological collaboration, marketing and production agreement signed last month between Integumen (‘SKIN’) and Modern Water (‘MWG’) has already resulted in a significant joint product offering capable of uniquely addressing one of the world’s obvious current and post-Pandemic needs.

To date, investment markets have almost exclusively focussed on the human race’s most immediate demand – that of COVID-19 detection, diagnostics and vaccination – and so has awarded a significant premium to the wider healthcare development sector in anticipation of its potential to deliver on these ambitions. Recognising that the virus (or at least some mutated form of it) is likely to exist for many years to come, however, and that international governments henceforth will need to invest significantly in order to avoid similar future calamities, major new, long-term funding will become available to address these challenges.

Having rapidly combined their individual technologies, laboratory and customer experience, SKIN and MWG have now jointly developed a new, unique and particularly timely product – its ‘Microtox CTM and VIRIMID Artificial Intelligence Real Time COVID-19 Alert System’.

Using substitute agents for ACE-2 (‘angiotensin-converting enzyme II’) to capture the SARS-CoV-2 virus and Integumen’s AI-driven identification protocols, this offers an early warning detection system for governments, health organisations, utilities etc. seeking a rapid means to monitor, detect, geolocate and quantify COVID-19 in wastewater for hotspots of infection before reaching the general population, thus curtailing the spread of the virus.

Potentially this is the ‘right product at the right time’ for the current and post-Pandemic world, suggesting it could even become transformative for both companies.
