Cannabix Technologies Correlates THC in Breath and Blood Using Proprietary Sample Collection and Analysis Hardware in Experimental Study

UF startup Cannabix Technologies Inc. (the “Company or Cannabix”) developer of marijuana breathalyzer devices for law enforcement and the workplace reports it has successfully tested a supplemental version of its FAIMS technology for detection of ∆9-tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”) and related analytes in human breath in an independent experimental study. The study showed excellent correlation between breath samples collected and analyzed with Cannabix hardware and blood plasma levels of THC.

The Company’s handheld Breath Collection Unit (“BCU”, Fig. 1) and newly developed laboratory “MS Breath Sampler” (Fig. 2) were used together to provide a new ground-breaking method for drug detection that complements gold-standard mass spectrometry (MS), and has the potential to significantly decrease laboratory analysis times and operating costs, while maintaining sensitive, precise results. The Company has developed a unique breath analysis system, capable of sampling breath for low volatility analytes, like THC, and can be completed within seconds, with no sample preparation needed.

This novel system, developed by Cannabix scientists and engineers was recently tested in an independent study conducted by pioneering scientist, Dr. Phillip Olla, of Audacia Bioscience in Ontario. Dr. Olla is one of only a handful of scientists globally who has historically ever conducted THC analysis in blood and breath.
