Cannabix Technologies (CSE:BLO) announced the completion of their breathalyzer prototype for law enforcement and the workplace.
As quoted in the press release:
This device is designed to operate both independently or coupled in tandem directly to a conventional Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer (MS) device used in forensic labs.
The Beta 3.0 prototype incorporates several key technological improvements which include enhancements to the ion source which, for portability, has been reduced in size with sustained stability, providing improvements to transmission and overall device sensitivity. The Beta 3.0 prototype also incorporates its own tunable self-contained detector which can be used in both independent FAIMS operation or in “pass-through” mode for tandem coupling directly with a MS device.
Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Raj Attariwala, states, “With completion of the modular Beta 3.0 prototype, Cannabix has achieved several key developmental milestones allowing this technology to be directly tested against the accepted laboratory standard of mass spectrometry.”
