Kontrol BioCloud a Safe Space Technology™
TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / October 29, 2020 / Kontrol Energy Corp. (CSE:KNR)(OTCQB:KNRLF)(FSE:1K8) ('Kontrol' or 'Company') is pleased to provide an update on its Kontrol BioCloud (or 'BioCloud') technology. As initially referenced in the press release from September 10, 2020 Kontrol is providing an update on lower detection limits and commercialization.
Lower Detection Limit
'We are pleased to continue to advance towards production of BioCloud units in November,' says Paul Ghezzi, CEO Kontrol. 'The lower detection limit is an important benchmark to provide potential customers with the operating sensitivity of BioCloud.'
As part of its commercialization of the BioCloud technology, Kontrol has currently established a lower detection limit of 50 SARs-COV-2 virus particles. This represents a sufficient sensitivity to the SARS COV-2 virus for commercialization.
The determination of lower detection limit was tested under independent laboratory conditions over multiple tests. The BioCloud virus collector was exposed to live SARs-COV-2 virus (virus that causes COVID-19) at multiple levels of virus ranging from 10,000, 5,000, 1,000, 100, 50 and 5 viruses. These tests were conducted multiple times to ensure repeatability of the response, and under laboratory conditions the detection of the live SARs-COV-2 virus was repeatably identified at 50 virus particles.
Based on feedback from potential customers and potential distribution channels Kontrol is seeking multiple certifications concurrently to meet regional requirements. These include CSA, CE and UL. CSA is a Canadian certification; CE mainly applies to European electronic products and UL is typically required in the USA.
Kontrol currently has approximately $3.0 Million of cash on hand as of October 28th, 2020 and has sufficient resources to complete the commercialization of BioCloud.
National Research Council of Canada
Kontrol has submitted all of its required research and files for potential National Research Council of Canada funding.
