TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kontrol Technologies Corp. (NEO:KNR) (OTCQB:KNRLF) (FSE:1K8) (“Kontrol” or the “Company”), a leader in smart building technology, is providing an updated version of the BioCloud operating software, adds a new health care distribution partner and advances the BioCloud replacement cartridge longevity.
“The most recent software update for BioCloud adds a number of new features based on customer feedback and demand. In addition, we have advanced the BioCloud technology to approximately double the longevity of the replacement cartridges,” said Paul Ghezzi, CEO of Kontrol Technologies. “We have learned a great deal from our operating units in the field and we continue to develop enhancements which are driven by the needs of our customers. We are also pleased to add a new health care distribution partner as BioCloud continues to attract global interest as a leading ambient air monitoring technology for viruses and pathogens.”
BioCloud Software Update
The updated version of the BioCloud software includes important improvements to the overall operation of the technology including advanced optical response data and analytics in real-time. Additional smart algorithms have been developed to map sensitivity against established baselines with the ability to reset baseline sensitivity in real-time. The software update will be issued as an OTA (over-the-air) update on or around December 13, 2021.
Replacement Cartridge Longevity Enhancement Reduces Operating Costs by up to 50%
Prior to the most recent software updates the BioCloud replacement cartridges were able to operate continuously until a singular positive viral or pathogen detection event. With the new version of the software the replacement cartridges can now be deployed for up to 2 detection events in the majority of cases.
“Our customers had requested that the BioCloud replacement cartridges be designed for potential multiple detection events. This important enhancement can effectively reduce the long-term operating costs of BioCloud by up to fifty percent,” said Gary Saunders, President of Kontrol BioCloud. “We are continuously working with our customers to deliver advances which are important to them and how they use the BioCloud technology.”
New Distribution Partner
Kontrol BioCloud has added a health organization in the Middle East as a new distribution partner. Under the terms of the distribution agreement the distribution partner will receive certain regional Government exclusivity for any Government orders for a period of up to 6 months. The new distribution partner operates health clinics in the Middle East with more than 20,000 doctors, healthcare workers and caregivers. The distribution partners name will remain confidential for industry competitive purposes.
