FluroTech (TSXV:TEST), (“FluroTech” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has finalized the engineering & design of its flagship product, CompleTest™, and engaged a third party manufacturer to produce the first commercial production run of the housing for the CompleTest™ Series 1 device.
The desktop device will commence commercial production July 2018 and is expected to be available for sale in Canada by October 2018, along with the first of a series of test kits that will be made available sequentially to the Cannabis industry over the next year and a half. Sales to international markets are expected in the first half of 2019.
“Over a decade of research has gone into the development of the CompleTest™ devices and test kits,” stated Dr. Elmar Prenner, Chief Technology Officer. “We believe this disruptive technology is a step change when compared to conventional high-performance liquid chromatography and mass spectroscopy, which require trained lab technicians to perform experiments and interpret complex sets of data.” Dr. Prenner explained that because the CompleTest™ allows users to obtain highly accurate results within minutes rather than waiting days or weeks for results from third party labs, it may allow cannabis producing companies to move from a compliance mindset to optimizing production by providing them tools to produce the highest quality products for their consumers.
Cross lab variability and a desire to understand one’s product before sending it for third party certification has led Canadian licensed producers and international growers to express a keen interest to be able to carry out in-house quality control and THC/CBD potency optimization.
“Opportunities for effective cannabis testing technology continue to expand with the recent legalization of recreational cannabis in Canada,” explained Danny Dalla-Longa, Chief Executive Officer. “CompleTest™ will fill a gap in the testing market, enabling growers, retailers and regulators to employ a user friendly, in-house option to affordably test cannabis, resulting in fast, accurate and repeatable results.”
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’s 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.
