Sixth Wave Innovations Inc. (CSE: SIXW) (OTCQB: SIXWF) (FSE: AHUH) ("Sixth Wave", "SIXW" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on the development of it's Accelerated Molecular Imprinted Polymers (AMIPs™) and ongoing collaboration with York University.

Sixth Wave has successfully integrated its AMIP technology into a multicomponent microfluidic device with fluorescent detection. The prototype device, created by Dr. Pouya Rezai's and Dr. Satinder Brar's groups at York University, coats a thin layer of AMIPs polymer onto fluorescent magnetic microparticles. As the ultra-thin AMIP polymer shell binds the target pathogen, a change in the fluorescent signal is detected by the device. The integration of the detectors with microfluidics devices and "lab-on-a-chip" designs allow screening for multiple pathogens with a single test/device.

"The integration of the AMIPs™ technology into a complex multi-component system is a key deliverable as we continue to expand the capabilities of our product development," explained Dr. Garrett Kraft, Vice President of Innovations at Sixth Wave. "The technologies and components integrated into this device include Molecularly Imprinted Polymer coatings on non-flat surfaces, magnetic fluorescent microparticles, microfluidics with magnetic field manipulation, and fluorescent imaging with integrated image analysis software."

Further research and development will characterize the device's technical parameters including sensitivity and specificity. Sixth Wave is building a fundamental foundation that will allow the integration of other advanced technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, machine learning, and automation with AMIPs technology. It is envisioned that Sixth Wave technologies will be especially useful when managing a large network of devices and monitoring metadata from large populations in real-time. The current device can run in a continuous monitoring configuration.

The recent advancements of Sixth Wave's AMIPs technology and demonstrated integration into electrical and fluorescent detectors have proven the flexible nature of the technology. With a solid fundamental foundation established, work continues towards developing the necessary technical specifications for each end-use application. Applications include personal diagnostics as well as high-throughput screening of air, surface, and water systems. The applications, in different environments, pose separate and unique challenges. Recent work directly contributes to novel solutions for the challenges in each of the aforementioned end-use applications.

The prototype is a result of the intellectual property detailed in the patent filed on September 28, 2021. The patent application Titled: MOLECULARLY IMPRINTED POLYMER COATINGS AND SENSORS FOR BIO DETECTION, covers the intellectual property generated by the collaboration with York University. The work with York University is an expansion of Sixth Wave's efforts with the AMIPs product line and covers the capabilities of detecting both viral and bacterial-based pathogens in fluid samples. The early-stage results are a part of SIXW's long-term plans to expand the AMIPs technology to detect a wide range of target pathogens and biomarkers that determine a change in health status and continuous real-time monitoring.

The Company continues to progress through an aggressive R&D program geared toward developing a wide range of AMIPs Virus/Bacteria rapid detection devices. The spectrum of prospective products will include SIXW's SmartMask offerings, in addition to smart-clothing, PPE applications, airborne sensors, breathalyzers, ELISA-based technologies, cartridge/lateral flow designs, and others.

As previously reported, SIXW has filed three patents regarding the AMIPs™ technology and its application to specific products that can utilize AMIPs. The Company is not making any express or implied claims that its current AMIPs product has the ability to eliminate, cure, contain, or detect, at a commercial level, COVID-19 (or SARS-2 coronavirus) at this time.
