Cannabix Technologies Provides Update on Marijuana Breathalyzer Development

UF startup Cannabix Technologies Inc., developer of the Cannabix Marijuana Breathalyzer for law enforcement and the workplace, is pleased to report that recent characterization work with Cannabix’s FAIMS (field asymmetric waveform ion mobility spectrometry) THC detection device with human subjects has shown the ability to consistently discriminate unwanted ions from complex human breath background matrices allowing for THC (∆9-tetrahydrocannabinol) detection.  In particular, recent testing with updated FAIMS cell geometries has shown the ability to consistently suppress several compounds that are commonly found in breath like nicotine, garlic, onion, meats, ethanol, and volatile flavorants such as methyl salicylate and menthol (commonly found in gum) allowing for discrimination and mobility of THC in exhaled breath.

The Company is also pleased to report that engineers have developed a new atmospheric pressure chemical ionization source that provides significantly improved ion control in terms of intensity, stability, and focusing.
