BEND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EVIO Inc. (“EVIO” or the “Company”), (OTCQB: EVIO), a leading provider of cannabis testing and scientific research for the regulated cannabis industry, is pleased to announce that EVIO Canada’s Keystone Labs in Edmonton has received a grant from the German-Canadian Centre for Innovation and Research (GCCIR). The overarching goal of the Alberta-Europe Technology Collaboration Fund is to help participants become more globally competitive by developing innovative technologies and research-based alliances with the potential to foster economic growth.
The grant will allow Keystone Labs to partner with a German company, Mildendo Gesellschaft fur mikrofluidische Systeme mbH, to complete the development of an innovative real-time testing platform. By using real-time testing technology throughout the grow cycle, cultivators can monitor cannabinoid profiles, potency and other important markers of plant development. The technology will also aid with monitoring factors which impact plant health and allow for adjustments throughout the grow cycle.
“We are excited to collaborate with our global partners on this game changing testing technology. Technological advancement in cannabis cultivation will keep Canada at the forefront of the global industry,” stated Jodi McDonald, President of EVIO Canada’s Keystone Labs. “The two-year commitment of the GCCIR grant will take the product from development to commercialization for the global cannabis market.”
EVIO Canada acquired 50% stake in Keystone Labs in May 2018.
