Welcome to beyond the press release of production of AGORACOM which we speak the small cap executives right after they put up for news today we’ve got not 1 but 2 companies on Empower Clinics trade on the CSE and the stock symbol CBDT and the U. S. under EPWCF we got Steve McAuley of Empower Clinics for those who knew the story that’s gonna be a lot you can get a lot of market attention a vertically integrated health and wellness company their server database but 165,000 patients through clinics in the southwest US plus a telemedicine platform and a world class medical diagnostics lab more than just lip service they’ve out they’ve shown continued growth on patient revenue income side for Q. 4 Q. 1 Q. 2 the other company with us Loop Insights trades on the stock symbol M. T. R. X. and for friends the U. S RACMF a provider of contactless solutions and artificial intelligence to drive real time insights enhance customer engagement automated contact tracing to the brick and mortar space again more just lip service there they’ve had tremendous success also just recently announced a great agreement would tell us we’re going to resell their their products all over Canada Vegas bubble were gonna be providing venue tracing a contact based solutions as well as are a number of other ones they rob believe what you guys have been able to do in the last 30 days. The headline we’re talk about today these companies have combined venue tracing with Covid-19 expertise to create the first ever travel bubble solution for the global travel industry that’s set to lose 3B, gentleman welcome to the show. George thanks for having us.  Guys this is a great press release in fact it’s almost unimaginable how big this is the 2 Canadian small cap covers gonna be able to tackle it before getting some the details you guys are 2 parts of this troubled solution so let’s walk through it briefly so people understand how this practically applies to the let’s start with the loop because you’re the front end facing part of the solution rob so maybe you can walk through that and they will move on to start a Steve on the Empower side with the Covid 19 testing part. Sure and and I’ll use the airline San Juan to Sam I guess with the cruise ships but. The challenge right now is our government needs to wake up I mean Dam they’re shutting down economies one of the only countries I’m not blaming Canada. But you know then to have no plan in place to eliminate the 14 day quarantine is absolutely absurd you know now there’s articles coming out that the Canadian government’s looking to buy a position. So I’m not really sure what agenda our government’s looking out for but it’s most definitely not about small business and that’s a fact so providing their lines the cruise ship the hospitality industry the ability to re open now is what Empower so in our case we have an end to end solution for tracing for payments for contactless engagement as we’ve talked about before when you add now the power of what Empower in the lab testing capabilities there is no need for 14 day quarantine. The minute that that you know person comes off the plane there’s ability now to have testing set out that complete security around all of the results and I have anonymity and what I mean by that is right now all of these news articles and I keep reading and on the on the radio on global too in other news at 90. It’s just a cry and it’s Hey we’ve had exposures come out by us and you know everyone just gets more anxious there’s no need for that with our platform the audience is 100 percent segmented and it’s only notified directly to your phone whether it’s an email a voice call whatever it may be there’s no need for this generalized red alert oh my goodness. Steve your side is the testing side which is easier obviously equally critical this because with loops are I’ve got on my phone it’s a wallet pass I can get on the plane I could be identified I can be alerted. Where does Empower fit in all this. Yeah this is this is a great partnership for us I mean we have been spending some time working with rob and his team going through the platform and understanding and I could tell you on this is state of the art technology on its effective but most importantly it’s simple and it’s it’s easy to use that’s functional so when we think about what our strengths are so think of the supply chain of testing so there’s the front and specimen collection however that might take place in and you’ve seen without prior releases you we are now you’re deep in our 4 stage national rollout of our testing platform but then the others great asset that we have in our books now is trying medical laboratory it has the capability of not only providing rapid tests are to be deployed at point of collection but also to do the back and PCR testing of which we can process for thousands of specimens per day right now that’s our current capacity so given the capacity that we have the scientific expertise having the ability to run the specimen collection at points all of us at that point all with the patients or the consumer might be and then combining with large testing capability we think putting the 2 yes assets together is it is a tremendous solution to help open up the economy and Steve you say simple and easy but that’s only because you made it simple and easy it’s not something very many companies can do don’t don’t sell yourself short that’s for sure. Rob I’m gonna go I’m gonna take a excerpt from the press release here because this is not just too small cap companies getting together and saying Hey let’s slop or solution together and see we can come up with a quote the company advises discussions are already underway with major airlines cruise ship operators and hotel rob can you give us a little bit of insight into what those conversations are looking like what the urgency is like and the acceptance of of this travel bubble solution. Sure it says its dynamic because there’s just so many so many challenges right now George we got boats that are traveling around the ocean empty you’ve got airlines that are struggling to gain confidence you’ve got people that are looking to go you know see family I mean I’ve I’ve got a buddy his you know down in the US is on his deathbed love not not nothing more to go see him but. 14 day quarantine. Like it’s it’s it’s asinine so the challenges are all everybody and it’s not just these these industries here the mom and pop grocery store and convenience store on the corner everyone has to remain remain open. Where where today in an article here with Steve is. To put a plan in place to present. Container again to the government to show them exactly now how we can reopen the private sector because right now putting your head in the sand sending everybody home for 2 weeks again in Toronto is doing anything that there’s still no good at all sell resulting in factors be there either protest mystery now people saying you were just not going to do it it is it’s nonsense and you know the next couple weeks here I think you’re absolutely imperative from government and to see someone stuff up Alberta is is starting to be some of that article when their health minister I mean they’re even more rougher shape so it’s not going anywhere putting that in the sense not solving anything so we’re providing them a turn key solution that starts that can be replicated over and over and over. So it’s not just airlines and cruise ship operators talk to but also governments that these discussions about it and if you don’t mind can you give us a sense for what those conversational like are they well advanced on the right the very beginning and what is what’s the what’s the excitement on the other side that you you guys may have a solution. Well I mean to be honest with you and of course I can’t say too much but that were way down the path we know that’s not a surprise to anyone you know they’re there the belief that the federal tracing apps gonna solve all the problems we know that’s not reality we all knew was gonna take a multitude of solutions and the private sector is going to play a big part of that I mean this this look back in time for decades and decades this is not a surprise to anyone so we’re way way down the path of the escalation of called it in phase 2 phase 3 depending upon how you’re talking to is here upon us and inevitable to grow look at the global numbers in the press release how many countries are shut down it’s not just here in Canada this is a global issue. On that note Steve there is also part of the press which word you guys make a joint statement says  empower believe the travel bubble combination of frequent testing robots in national trade platform provides the antenna production nested to spark a strong global economic recovery I mean you know that’s all I’m gonna play devil’s advocate say that almost seems too good to be true but the fact of matter is someone has to save the day and someone has to save the world at the end of the day and looks like it it may be you guys can you speak more to that as to you know whether that’s done almost intimidate you as the as the size of the problem or your confidence level that yeah we can actually solve this. It did the size of the problem is has incredible magnitude it doesn’t necessarily intimidate us all we know we can’t solve every country’s problems are but we know that we can definitely get to private sector public sector and bring this solution to the table as as rob and I were discussing you know how to put an implementation plan in place yeah we quickly realized that we’re both having independent conversations with small medium and large entities and if we could cross reference those opportunities and bring in more viable young cohesive solution together because you need contact tracing and testing you know one without the other isn’t a complete solution so again it was really relatively obvious for us that if we can find a way to really collaborate and work together we got a fighting chance to make a difference and to make an impact we think we can make a scalable impact on to this right now it’s about getting awareness out but I can tell you that I go right from this call into a large group that owns elder care facilities in all the southwest United States there are thousands of patients and their families that are impacted just by this one conversation that I’m having rocks having the same conversations with large organizations like U. N. C. to weigh in and the tech bubble is coming up and will be on the bubble is coming up in Las Vegas we’ve already been in discussions with cruise lines we know that rob’s been in discussions with cruise lines so as your rob used the word dynamic a little bit earlier that’s what it’s like for us right now it’s it’s it’s kind of wild and dynamic and crazy but we’ve got a solution that we believe is extremely viable and is going to make an impact to getting this economy back up and running Hey rob is a tiny perfect here because if you guys try to you know do. This 6 months ago you would have had tell us third party validation the Vegas bubble for the NC double a the university of Houston Steve would have had the time to show Q. 4 Q. one Q. 2 growth the acquisition of this massive lab in Dallas Texas right in the heart of the medical world there so when you’re having these conversations how much does your success with some of these names come into play because I got assume that’s very important  just can’t come along so we got a solution even if we have it. This that faith in conference might not be there but you guys have it because of you’ve got third party validation. What is time is everything in business and life and it’s much like our ticker symbol people always ask me what is matrix as evidence the watch the movie everything always happens for a reason and you know let’s say 7 not that I’m taking credit for you know cold it but its foresight around digital transformation and you know what without a transformative solution or future proof roadmap we’re gonna be hung out here high and dry for decades to come the financial burden that this is put on by the Canadian population areas it’s it’s still it’s sickening and then out there’s no need to go hire more people throw more money at it this is what artificial intelligence and automation is about. Is about machine learning it’s about managing these processes like we build here was Steve. It it’s it’s it’s a little frustrating they can tell their yeah I’d like to tell you are we all are on I’m glad yeah I think it right it is and you know right now is the perfect timing and like I said when. When when we get in these conversations we deliver and at the end of the day you know there’s a a global problem anyone just punching Covid-19 revolt protest whatever maybe I mean you see videos of you know cities burning burned down again I mean it’s it’s it’s rather alarming at its time here that groups like Empower and Lop come together and deliver something that’s. Black and white in front of them here we go Steve is it fair to say that in phase one. We’ll put their faith in government to do the right things and help us get through all this but now in phase 2 are you hearing from you know you are you said useful to cruise ship operates for example and many other major film studios I mean you you’re you’re you you’ve already announced testing for major film studio we already know that is it safe to say that enterprise is much more willing now in fact almost demanding that you guys come forth with the solution because they’ve lost the faith in government. Well I mean I think to keep in mind here the markets you know my current law on major markets are in the US and the US are doesn’t have a cohesive federal strategy to address these issues that we’re talking about right now even at the state level state by state their success or failures very dramatically but there is one consistency in the United States in all states the numbers are out of control again and they’re not getting worse they’re not getting better getting much worse for sure there is our first region there is dissent I’m at all levels and the other thing is happening now in the U. S. this is becoming a legal matter you know we see our society the U. S. as more litigious than perhaps we see back home here to Canada all but we’re we’re seeing and we’re hearing not and to go but we have have not see this going on is that employers are getting sued by employees if that employer is not demonstrating that they’re doing all they can to provide protect or provide health and safety not only for employees but for customers and vendors so you’ve got industries now that are all putting regulation and so if you take film and television you’ve got the screen actor’s guild who are dictating policy if you look at the cruise ship industry the our cruise line international H. R. association are established policies for cruise lines going forward which say all crew staff and passengers must produce a negative coping 19 task 5 days before boarding or they will not be able to board and indeed a very comprehensive contact tracing solution just to pull it all together make it work so is becoming regulated now whether. Federal government’s comment or state governments come in is almost irrelevant at NY times the big industries are now legislating themselves to bring these solutions to market. Hey Rob any decision like this still comes down ROI no matter what money still matters at the end of the day we know the bad though the losses are massive you gave in to you do you get anything stop the other day off on a call about just how much the Ontario or the Canadian government was losing from foreign students not being able to be here talk a little bit to that if you don’t mind and then does that mean does that give you guys pricing power down today because of the losses are so massive known to be bickering over cost they just want a solution to get back to business. Well most definitely I mean no matter what angle you look at it whether it’s from a federal government standpoint. The impact by not having students foreign students attending school in Canada this year will surpass 1B so just think about not just that’s just foreign students. Looking to still reside in Canada to go to university. The numbers are absolutely staggering. Sell side you know I said to you Hey George I can make your headache go away instantly across on $1000000 and look at the numbers you’ve got last. I mean. You know what is some of what is the what is the value that’s what someone’s willing to pay. And right now we’re we’re in a very strong position. And you know it’s the same side of it my my call before this one was one of the major universities in in the south we’re at 50 percent capacity for the ball season coming up. We have very limited revenue now because of it they’re all not just looking for today George in the US where we’re seeing these large enterprise organizations are looking for 2021-2022. 3 year roadmap because they understand this is not going anywhere just like 911 changed the way security and travel covid pandemic right now is forcing digital ID digital wallets and the complete end to end solution so you’re gonna see testing. I guarantee you you mark my words you will see testing in every major airport in our country in the next 6 months to one year. Do you think you guys play a major role in that Steve and rob do you guys think that you know if you’re able if you got this travel bubble that did you guys be a big part of that well I think part of it and once again I think that that’s the reason easy answer yes we’re going to be a part of this for sure you know the the the volume and scale this is substantial and to the extent that we can you know from a business perspective in our partnership I gain some of that market share then I think people are going to quickly realized that we have that capability we have the operational skill set we have the sciences and the diagnostic testing capability and we have an elegance A. I. driven solution for contact tracing so I definitely think that we can play a role in that part of it but as we’ve been discussing here there are so many large assets not for us to to talk about you know we together you know we are already you know independently talking to your division one universities and colleges in the states and their athletic programs you know some of these big division one colleges you know they have their generate in excess of $1B U. S. on their programs per year so that is a significant revenue that has been lost and they’re not going to regain it that’s read on walks so now is as we’re rob says. How are they going to plan to resolve this business problem that they have in years ahead there to figure out how to regain it in a safe and healthy manner again for all of the people who are in their system your players and coaches and staff but also the fans and without the fans attending then they really can’t generate the revenue streams that they they normally expect. Jets jets I know you both have I mean you’ve done it everyone a great service here by jumping on the middle day you both have hard stops in 2 minutes which is great because you speak to potential customers so rob maybe I’ll ask you is it is it safe to assume that you know you can expect to see some kind of uptake commercialization coming out of this. In the near future or is it still going to be up a long sales cycle in order to get this done. No I I think it’s it’s it’s very near I mean that. The the the thing that we’ve built here George this can be replicated in every city across the world I mean it’s it’s where our data platform that can connect to any lab testing group globally so doesn’t matter which government doesn’t matter it’s private sector independent whatever maybe and so now this is something like this said here that we are we see great opportunity and we’re going after. There’s so much more we could talk about we’re pretty sure the fact the took out your 20 minutes of your time you know the day congratulations.  Pretty soon their future goes sounds like you’ve already got irons in the fire and not your some shareholder point of view but from a system point of view thanks to you guys have done so far and if you can really you know make this happen then you’re gonna be helping out everybody not just financial mental health stress anxiety all that so good luck to you guys and thanks for joining us right thank you George .  you’ve been watching Steve McAauley of  Empower clinics trades on the CSE and the stock symbol CBDT and for a friends of the US under EPWCF. likewise you been watching Rob Anson of Loop Insights trades of TSX venture exchange of the stock symbol MTRX go watch the matrix if you haven’t you can answer the question and for friends the U. S. RACMF thanks for joining us everyone have a great day see you next time.

VIDEO – Loop Insights $MTRX.ca and Empower Clinics $CBDT.ca Team Up To Create First Ever “Travel Bubble” Solution For Global Travel Industry $VMD.ca $VPT.ca $ADK.ca

The COVID-19 Pandemic has wreaked havoc on the global economy but perhaps no industry has suffered worse than the travel industry which could suffer an unfathomable loss of $US 3.3 TRILLION (Not A Typo) if it can’t find a practical solution to replace the shut down and / or quarantine measures mandated around the world.  Specifically, as of today, travel restrictions by country are as follows: 

  • 58 countries are completely closed
  • 124 countries are partially open with MANDATORY quarantine upon arrival

Unlike the restaurant business which can mitigate losses through alternative models such as take-out, delivery and outdoor patios, the travel industry has no mitigation solutions.  Countries are either shut down or implementing such strict quarantine requirements that they might as well be shut down.  The only solution is a complete solution that combines venue tracing, contact tracing and rapid testing to give government, airlines and cruise ships the comfort they need to know that travellers are not spreading COVID-19 to each other, or to other countries. 

Loop Insights CEO, Rob Anson confirmed this when he said:

“We have heard from stakeholders in the entertainment, travel, and hospitality industries that have stressed the importance of an end-to-end integrated solution capable of protecting employees and customers to facilitate a safe economic recovery.”

ENTER THE “TRAVEL BUBBLE”

Earlier today, Empower Clinics (CBDT:CSE) and Loop Insights (MTRX:TSXV) announced they have combined forces to provide an end-to-end COVID-19 mitigation solution complete with venue tracing, real-time automated guest exposure notifications and frequent testing with rapid results in 15 minutes.  More than just lip service, each company brings a strong recent track record of success in their respective parts of the bubble as follows:

LOOP INSIGHTS

As the front facing part of the Travel Bubble solution, Loop Insights is a powerful Artificial Intelligence company whose industry leading venue tracing has gained significant traction towards reopening the tourism, hospitality and entertainment industries in the United States with the likes of University of Houston and the NCAA Basketball #VegasBubble, as well as, recently being recognized by TELUS as one of the most advanced IoT solutions in the world for their customers.

EMPOWER CLINICS

Empower’s rapid antigen and antibody tests produce results in only 15 minutes, providing airlines, cruise ships and the 182 countries currently in full or partial shutdown with the safety and security necessary to fully reopen their borders to international travel. Moreover, Empower’s KAI Medical Laboratory is a high-complexity accredited laboratory that provides reliable and accurate testing solutions to enterprise level clients, including the gold standard COVID-19 RT-PCR testing  with the capacity to process 4,000 tests per day. Empower recently announced a deal to provide a major film and television studio with 1,000 such tests.

Together, the two companies believe the Travel Bubble combination of frequent testing and a robust international tracing platform provides the end-to-end protection necessary to spark a strong global economic recovery.

Sounds too good to be true?  Both companies still have to execute but they advise that advanced discussions are already underway with major airlines, cruise ship companies and hotel operators.

Watch or listen to this powerful interview with Empower CEO, Steve McAuley and Loop CEO, Rob Anson to learn more about their potential game changing Travel Bubble solution.

  • Partnership to provide an end-to-end COVID-19 mitigation solution complete with venue tracing, real-time automated guest exposure notifications, and frequent testing with rapid results in 15 minutes.
  • Together, Loop and Empower have created a system built on the pillars of:
  • Venue tracing
  • Frequent testing with rapid results
  • Real-time reporting to ensure the travel bubble provides end-to-end protection

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 19, 2020 — Loop Insights Inc. (MTRX:TSXV) (RACMF:OTCQB) (the “Company” or “Loop”), a provider of contactless solutions and artificial intelligence (“AI”) to drive real-time insights, enhanced customer engagement and automated contact tracing to the brick and mortar space, is pleased to announce a partnership with Empower Clinics (CBDT:CSE) (EPWCF:OTC) (8EC:FRA) to provide an end-to-end COVID-19 mitigation solution complete with venue tracing, real-time automated guest exposure notifications, and frequent testing with rapid results in 15 minutes.

TRAVEL BUBBLE SOLUTION SOLVES CURRENT QUARANTINE REQUIREMENTS THAT ARE SHUTTING DOWN INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL
As a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, mandatory 14 day quarantine periods, and the lack of any travel bubble solutions that could reliably track and mitigate the global spread of the virus by plane or cruise ship, countries have been forced to take drastic measures that are leading to significant damage of the global travel industry.

Specifically, as of today, travel restrictions by country are as follows:

  • 58 countries are completely closed
  • 124 countries are partially open with MANDATORY quarantine upon arrival

(Source – https://www.ca.kayak.com/travel-restrictions)

Together, Loop and Empower have created a system built on the pillars of:

  • Venue tracing
  • Frequent testing with rapid results
  • Real-time reporting to ensure the travel bubble provides end-to-end protection

Empower’s rapid antigen and antibody tests produce results in only 15 minutes, providing airlines, cruise ships, and the 182 countries currently in full or partial shutdown with the safety and security necessary to reopen their borders to international travel fully.

Moreover, Empower owns KAI Medical Laboratory, a high-complexity CLIA and COLA accredited laboratory that provides reliable and accurate testing solutions to enterprise level clients, hospitals, medical clinics, pharmacies, and employer groups.

KAI has taken an active role in COVID-19 testing, battling the pandemic through RT-PCR testing and serology testing with the capacity to process 4,000 RT-PCR test specimens per day. COVID-19 RT-PCR testing is the gold standard due to its high degree of accuracy and will play an important role in the Travel Bubble solution.

As the front-facing part of the Travel Bubble solution, Loop Insights is a powerful Artificial Intelligence company whose industry-leading venue tracing has gained significant traction towards reopening the tourism, hospitality, and entertainment industries in the United States with the likes of University of Houston and the NCAA Basketball #VegasBubble, as well as, recently being recognized by TELUS as one of the most advanced IoT solutions in the world for their customers.

Loop Insights CEO Rob Anson stated: “We have heard from stakeholders in the entertainment, travel, and hospitality industries that have stressed the importance of an end-to-end integrated solution capable of protecting employees and customers to facilitate a safe economic recovery. In partnership with Empower’s rapid testing technology, Loop has established a comprehensive solution capable of establishing a travel bubble and reopening a significant portion of the global economy.”

Steven McAuley, Chairman and CEO of Empower Clinics, stated: “As we expand our efforts on the Get Back To Work testing initiative, it has become apparent that businesses of all types, large or small, private or public sector require not only fast and accurate COVID-19 testing, but also a comprehensive solution for contact tracing. Establishing a partnership with Loop, working with the RT-PCR and rapid testing capabilities of Kai Medical, allows our companies together to establish a safe and viable economic recovery solution.”

AIR CANADA ADVOCATES FOR TEST-BASED APPROACH AND DROPPING 14-DAY MANDATORY QUARANTINE
The Travel Bubble solution comes at a time when both major industry participants and economic experts are calling for solutions beyond quarantining to reopen industries and stave off economic collapse.

On October 6th, Air Canada (AC:TSX) (ACDVF:OTCQX) called for increased testing in lieu of mandatory quarantine periods,

We believe that a test-based strategy may be a safe alternative to the 14-day quarantine.”

On October 15, 2020 a panel of Canadian economists proclaimed the “economy must remain open despite second wave” or suffer the very likely outcome of bankruptcies and business closures “with hospitality, travel and tourism set for the harshest impact.”

By providing testing, tracking, and real-time reporting, Loop and Empower have created a safe and secure Travel Bubble solution to allow enterprise level businesses to return to full operations, particularly those in the hospitality, travel, and live entertainment industries.

$3.3 TRILLION IN LOSSES FOR GLOBAL TOURISM INDUSTRY

Without a solution to replace the drastic travel measures currently in place around the world, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) reported that COVID-19 may cost the world tourism sector losses of US$ 3.3 trillion.

In Canada alone, according to Statista, the Canadian tourism industry contributed close to $40 billion to the economy in 2019. This year, the COVID-19 pandemic has had devastating consequences for the industry.

Loop and Empower believe the Travel Bubble combination of frequent testing and a robust international tracing platform provides the end-to-end protection necessary to spark a strong global economic recovery.

(CSE:KNR)(OTCQB:KNRLF)(FSE:1K8) (“Kontrol” or “Company“) is pleased to announce it has won a new order for its smart building technology across four buildings and has been recognized as one of Canada’s top growing companies by the Globe and Mail Top Growing Companies 2020.

New Smart Building Technology Win
Following a number of pilots for its SmartSuite® technology the Company has received an order for four apartment buildings located in Ontario, Canada. The contract win was awarded after a comprehensive Request for Proposal (RFP) process that involved other competitors. For industry competitive purposes revenue details and size of the order will not be disclosed.

“We’ve selected Kontrol and their SmartSuite® technology to help us control, manage and reduce in-suite heating costs in four of our multi-unit residential (apartment) properties in Ontario,” says Cam Murchison, Vice President, Property Standards at Q Residential (a leading private real estate asset manager and operator). “Their smart building technology attracted better than expected incentives from the local utility and allows us to understand what is happening within the suites when it comes to temperatures and open windows and doors across the four buildings. With their system providing cloud access to in-suite temperatures and settings, using our mobile devices and laptops, we no longer need to enter our tenant’s spaces to troubleshoot and make changes, allowing us to avoid unnecessary and expensive truck rolls. This is a big advantage and benefit under the environment we now operate in.”

Globe and Mail Ranks Kontrol 81st in Top 400 Growing Companies

We are thankful to all of our customers, employees and partners for their support as we continue to develop our technology solutions to build a better future for all,” says Paul Ghezzi, CEO of Kontrol Energy.

  • Internal goal is to have BioCloud units commercially available in November 2020
  • Selected a number of suppliers that will form part of BioCloud supply chain
  • Building global supply chain with the goal of being able to supply the market with up to 20,000 units per month

TORONTO, ON / September 23, 2020 / Kontrol Energy Corp. (CSE:KNR)(OTCQB:KNRLF)(FSE:1K8) (“Kontrol” or “Company“) is pleased to provide a corporate update.

“Our team at Kontrol has been very busy since the completion of pre-commercialization testing through the independent labs,” says Paul Ghezzi, CEO of Kontrol. “We have now moved to the commercialization phase for the Kontrol BioCloud® analyzer (“BioCloud analyzer” or “BioCloud”) which includes further lab testing to establish the lower detection limits.

Commercialization of BioCloud

As part of BioCloud’s commercialization plans, Kontrol will provide lower detection limits and operating specifications for the analyzer. Initial expectations, based on lab testing completed to date, is that BioCloud will be effective in small to medium space settings with 3 or more people, and therefore would be suitable for applications in many environments such as classrooms, offices, airplanes, trains, buses, long-term care facilities and hospitals.

Like all electrical products, BioCloud is required to operate with a CSA approval in Canada. The Company is in the process of seeking CSA approvals as part of commercialization. CSA is a leader in Standards Development and in Testing, Inspection and Certification around the world including Canada, the U.S., Europe and Asia. The CSA registered mark shows that a product has been independently tested and certified to meet recognized standards for safety or performance. The Company has a long history of success in achieving CSA approvals in our established continuous emissions business.

Operating Subsidiaries, Trademarks and Patents

Kontrol BioCloud Inc., which was recently incorporated, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Kontrol, and will be the primary sales and marketing entity for BioCloud. CEM Specialties Inc. (“CEMSI”), also a wholly owned operating subsidiary of Kontrol, will be the primary research, development, and integration entity for BioCloud.

Kontrol has commenced the trademark of the term Safe Space Technology and has initiated the patent registration for its intellectual property related to BioCloud.

Securing Supply Chain

Kontrol has selected a number of suppliers that will form part of BioCloud supply chain, and we will be announcing those names in the coming weeks, following the issuance of applicable purchase orders.

“While we are not making any claims about revenue at this time, we are building our global supply chain with the goal of being able to supply the market with up to 20,000 units per month,” says Gary Saunders VP of Kontrol. “We plan to have this substantially completed over the coming weeks.”

Strengthened Balance Sheet and Discussions for Additional Government Funding

As of September 22, 2020, the Company has received approximately $1 Million in cash from the exercise of common share options and warrants which has strengthened Kontrol’s balance sheet to advance BioCloud’s commercialization.

BioCloud Wall Unit Game Changer In Fight To Manage Pandemic

  • Launched BioCloud, an unobtrusive wall-mounted technology which detects the presence of COVID-19 in the air and triggers an alert system to provide real time notifications of the pathogen’s presence to facility managers, with the aim of allowing outbreaks to be contained before they occur
  • Immediate applications in schools, hospitals, long term care facilities and mass transit vehicles including planes, trains and buses represent a game changer in the fight against COVID-19
  • “There’s no doubt in my mind that this technology can quickly and effectively detect an array of airborne pathogens, including the virus that causes COVID-19. Our results are absolutely conclusive,” confirmed Dr. Heinrichs

TORONTO, Sept. 11, 2020 – Kontrol Energy Corporation, a Canadian public Company (CSE: KNR) (OTCQB: KNRLF), has launched BioCloud, an unobtrusive wall-mounted technology which detects the presence of COVID-19 in the air and triggers an alert system to provide real time notifications of the pathogen’s presence to facility managers, with the aim of allowing outbreaks to be contained before they occur.

Immediate applications in schools, hospitals, long term care facilities and mass transit vehicles including planes, trains and buses represent a game changer in the fight against COVID-19.

“There is a critical need for technology that can provide us with assurances that the workplaces, schools, healthcare environments and other spaces we physically occupy are safe and free of infectious disease. Today, we have that in BioCloud,” said Paul Ghezzi, Chief Executive Officer of Kontrol. “Our team has been working day and night since the onset of the pandemic to bring this exciting technology to market. It will be an invaluable tool to enhance the existing system of individual testing and contact tracing.”

This breakthrough announcement comes after extensive and independent lab testing in tandem with some of the country’s foremost experts in the field, including Dr. David Heinrichs, Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at Western University.

“There’s no doubt in my mind that this technology can quickly and effectively detect an array of airborne pathogens, including the virus that causes COVID-19. Our results are absolutely conclusive,” confirmed Dr. Heinrichs. 

With COVID-19 cases expected to spike across the country this fall and into the winter season, BioCloud commercialization and distribution plans are in high gear.

Gary Saunders, VP of Kontrol, confirms that supply chains for the technology are already prepped to deliver tens of thousands of units monthly.

“We are thrilled to have our hard work validated in the lab with a fully-tested detection chamber that can be moved quickly to market. We anticipate having the first working units in Canadian schools by November of this year,” said  Saunders. “We’re currently on track to have the required manufacturing capability to meet the production volumes of up to 20,000 BioCloud units per month.”

With the breakthrough technology coming on the heels of the Federal Government’s $2 billion dollar announcement to help schools reopen and operate safely, BioCloud aims to play a vital role in the education sector and beyond.

“We can now detect the virus and assess the effectiveness of HVAC systems by continuously sampling air quality in real-time. As a father and Independent School board member, I understand how this technology can help bring some much needed peace of mind to parents who want to ensure the safety and well being of their kids and loved ones,” added Ghezzi. “BioCloud will not just monitor air quality, it seeks to create the conditions for Canadians to safely and confidently return to their jobs and their schools.” 

Kontrol Energy Corp estimates a $12,000 USD per unit cost for BioCloud based on supply chain components. The detection chamber is fully replaceable after it comes in contact with the SARS-CoV-2 virus and can be disposed of safely and replaced for continuous use.

About Kontrol Energy Corp.
Kontrol Energy Corp., a Candian public company, is a leader in the energy efficiency and air quality sector through IoT, Cloud and SaaS technology. With a disciplined mergers and acquisition strategy, combined with organic growth.  Kontrol Energy Corp. provides a combination of software, hardware and service solutions to its customers to improve energy management, air quality and continuous emission monitoring.
