FluroTech (TSXV:TEST), (“FluroTech” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce it has submitted its letter of intention to submit saliva-based roadside drug screening equipment for approval evaluation in early 2019 to the Drugs and Driving Committee (“DDC”), a committee within the Canadian Society of Forensic Science. The role of the DDC is to act as an advisory body to the Department of Justice with respect to issues of drug impaired driving. The DDC makes vital recommendations for the selection of the devices the police forces may use for roadside impairment testing for ∆9-tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”), methamphetamines and cocaine. FluroTech has designed a device to meet the requirements of the DDC and will actively work to ensure the product meets their current and future needs.

“Since August, the Company has accelerated its development efforts for its roadside testing device. Prototyping is well underway and the Company has successfully designed test kits to meet the objectives of law enforcement. Importantly, the test kits are being designed to address the issue of controlling the saliva interferences that are causing technical difficulties for many of the devices on the market,” commented Dr. Elmar Prenner, Chief Technology Officer at FluroTech. “We are confident we will have a best in class roadside device to submit to the DDC in early 2019.”


It is anticipated that FluroTech’s roadside testing device, which can also be used in industrial testing, will produce accurate results to the parts per million in a wide range of ambient temperatures. The testing process has a short wait time, with saliva swabs being completed in under five minutes and sample analysis in under eight minutes. Additionally, the device has been designed for ease of use requiring minimal training, and is durable, allowing for use in police vehicle settings.
