Chapter 11 provides the company the opportunity to reorganise its business under the supervision of the court. Lifestream has signed an agreement with Polymer Technology Systems (PTS) for the latter to acquire substantially all of its assets for $750,000, subject to higher and better offers. Indianapolis, Indiana-based PTS makes the CardioChek self-testing system, which can be used to check cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose and ketones.
