FluroTech Achieves Another Milestone and Completes Test Kits That Measure THCa and CBDa with Accuracy and Repeatability
FluroTech (TSXV:TEST), (“FluroTech” or the “Company”), has successfully completed the development of the test kits for THCa and CBDa. When used with the Company’s flagship quality control and potency optimization testing device, the CompleTest™, accurate, reliable and consistent THCa and CBDa testing results can be achieved onsite within 15 minutes with this user friendly solution.
By having onsite cannabis testing, companies can save the time of shipping samples to the lab, improve the accuracy of labeling and cannabis sorting, pre-validate lab testing results, and optimize potency yield and cannabis curing techniques by testing the cannabis multiple times during the production process.
“FluroTech’s science team has developed a straightforward testing protocol to accurately measure the concentrations of THCa and CBDa. Each test can be done with as little as 0.10 grams of cannabis,” commented Dr. Elmar Prenner, Chief Technology Officer. “I am not aware of any other affordable technology that can achieve the same degree of accuracy without the use of trained lab technicians and relatively expensive lab equipment.”
In preliminary data comparisons for the test for THCa and CBDa, the CompleTest™ results were very close to the results obtained for the same test sample by the current industry standard equipment, High Performance Liquid Chromatography or mass spectrometry. Unlike, the current testing equipment which often requires more data interpretation by scientists which may lead to cross-lab variability, CompleTest™ yielded the same test results on multiple test samples in a row.
The Company expects to obtain independent, third party validation of the THCa and CBDa test kits and the CompleTest™ device in the month of September and allow beta users to provide feedback prior to commercialization in late October.
“This milestone is significant for the Company. I believe that, it advances FluroTech from a research and development company to a position of achieving commercialization. In addition to the now completed heavy metals tests, the test for THCa and CBDa represents the completion of the second of seven prospective revenue streams the Company is actively developing” says CEO, Danny Dalla-Longa.
CompleTest™ is FluroTech’s flagship brand and product line. CompleTest™ is a portable, cost-effective, state-of-the-art cannabis testing device, able to provide quick, accurate and consistent testing results. It is designed for cultivators, dispensaries and anyone with a vested interest in consumer safety to test the quality and safety of their cannabis products and to optimize potency yield.
FluroTech is a technology and marketing company whose core business is focused on the commercialization of new technologies in the cannabis industry. FluroTech‘s proprietary spectroscopy-based technology allows for the testing and identification of organic and inorganic compounds contained within biological samples. Using the technology that was developed at the University of Calgary in conjunction with the University of Alberta, FluroTech has developed a two-part solution comprising an instrument called the CompleTest™ and consumable testing kits.
