University of Florida Key Developments
Cannabix Technologies Inc. Partners with University of Florida to Develop Marijuana Breath Test Devices
Aug 11 15
Cannabix Technologies Inc. announced that it has entered into a research and option agreement to develop a cutting edge breath detection device based upon high-field ion mobility and mass spectrometry in collaboration with the Yost Research Group at the University of Florida. The objective of the research and collaboration between University of Florida and The Yost Research Group and Cannabix will be to develop FAIMS and FAIMS-MS systems that would be used in the field by law enforcement and in the workplace to test for individuals under the influence of marijuana. the Yost Research Group has been actively working on THC detection using mass spectrometers since early 2015. The Yost Research Group has advanced the ability to detect THC in simulated breath using their novel FAIMS cell with mass spectrometry. Researchers have successfully isolated THC and some THC-related compounds in simulated breath samples using a unique method. Work is ongoing to ultimately develop a hand-held instrument based on FAIMS that will capture breath and identify the signatures for THC in real time. The research and patent option agreement immediately allows for Cannabix to seamlessly carry on development work that has been done by the Yost Research Group using the FAIMS and FAIMS-MS systems. The agreement provides Cannabix the option to acquire an exclusive worldwide license to University of Florida US Patent 8,237,118 in the area of breath analysis of controlled substances and to work with the Yost Research Group to develop THC-specific FAIMS and FAIMS-MS devices.
