FluroTech (TSXV:TEST)(OTCQB: FLURF), (“FluroTech” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide a technology update. The Company previously disclosed the pause of sales after the company detected a contamination of certain test kits due to packaging materials. Finding alternative packaging, the issue has been resolved. Extensive testing internally and by beta testers validated the test kits perform with the accuracy and repeatability as intended. The CompleTest’s™ accuracy for CBDa and THCa testing is within a 2% variability range, when compared to reference data. This accuracy exceeds the performance of other competitive alternatives available to producers. In addition to high accuracy, the CompleTest™ consistently demonstrates repeatable results of the same sample.
With the resolution of the packaging issue, the Company has executed on its staffing plan to build out the sales and marketing team through the addition of Eric Entz to its sales team. Eric has built an extensive network in the cannabis industry. In addition to his commitment to FluroTech, he is the Vice President of Western Canada Leaf Forward, the Treasurer and Secretary of The Alberta Cannabis Collective and a Senior Manager of Operations at Cultivated Solutions.
“I welcome Eric to the team,” commented Danny Dalla-Longa. “Although determining the proper packaging material for our product took longer than expected, I’m very pleased with the product we can now deliver. I believe the CompleTest™ accuracy will be enhanced as we continue to refine our testing protocol. Our device will go a long way in fixing the pronounced cross-lab variability issues that currently exist in the marketplace.”
FluroTech’s sales representatives will be attending the Lift & Co. Cannabis Business Conference (“LCBC”) in Toronto commencing June 7th where they will be conducting test demonstrations. LCBC brings together leading experts from across the industry to tackle subject matter from a uniquely Canadian perspective.
FluroTech has a number of revenue streams to pursue, currently focused on CompleTest™ sales, finalizing the development of a low concentration THC test for hemp and the commercialization of the biomarker technology for seed to sale tracking. For more information on FluroTech please refer to the Company’s annual MD&A posted on April 25th and recent interim Q1 MD&A posted on May 29th.
