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.”

(CSE: LOBE) (OTC Pink: GTSIF) (“Lobe” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the launch of preclinical research studies using psilocybin and N-Acetylcysteine (“NAC”) for the treatment of mild traumatic brain injuryconcussion (“mTBI”) with post-traumatic stress disorder (“PTSD”). The study is in collaboration with a multidisciplinary team of scientists and physicians at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine under the lead of Michael E. Hoffer, M.D., professor of otolaryngology and neurological surgery.

NAC has been shown to be safe and efficacious in a phase I human clinical study in treating military personnel who had suffered mTBI. The initial research focus is to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of the combination of psilocybin and NAC using broadly accepted rodent models. Final results are expected in 2021. Once this is established, more specific work can examine dose response, medicine uptake, and medicine levels. The research team at the Miller School of Medicine has conducted prior studies involving NAC with mTBI and has a license from the United States Drug Enforcement Administration to conduct research using Schedule I controlled substances, which includes psilocybin.
