(AUSI), and we also highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Aura Systems, Inc. designs, assembles, tests, and sells proprietary and patented axial flux induction machines. The Company offers patented mobile power solutions, including AuraGen for commercial and industrial applications; and its solution for military applications.

These include Military, Law Enforcement, First Response, Refrigeration, Construction, Telecom, Entertainment, Oil & Gas, Infrastructure, and Medical. Aura Systems has its head office in Stanton, California. The Company’s shares trade on the OTC Markets.

The Company was established in 1987 as a defense industry think-tank. From infrared projection and gamma-ray surveillance to space-based missile launch, for more than three decades, Aura Systems’ history of technology-forward innovation has seen its technology launched into space to repair the Hubble telescope, dive to the ocean’s depths on board Los Angeles Class Nuclear Fast Attack Submarines, and ascend through the air aboard F-16 reconnaissance jets.

Aura Systems’ AuraGen® technology has brought reliable green power around the world. AuraGen® weighs less than 96 pounds and is roughly two feet in diameter. In most cases, the AuraGen® is small enough to fit under the hood of a vehicle.

The AuraGen® is integrated directly into the vehicle; no separate trailer is required, unlike traditional systems. Likewise, because the AuraGen® is fueled by the vehicle’s own standard fuel tank, no separate fuel is required. The AuraGen's small size and light weight thus translates into reduced fuel consumption and increased maneuverability versus traditional power solutions.

In December of 2019, Aura Systems announced that it fulfilled the balance of CBOL Corporation's first order of 115 AuraGen® units on schedule during the Company's Q3 ending November 30, 2019.

Sayona Mining Limited, together with its subsidiaries, engages in the identification, acquisition, evaluation, and exploration of mineral assets in Australia and globally. The Company chiefly explores for lithium and graphite. It formerly went by the name DiamonEx Limited. It changed its corporate name to Sayona Mining Limited in May 2013. Listed on the OTC Markets, Sayona Mining is based in Paddington, Australia.

Sayona Mining’s focus is on sourcing and developing the raw materials required to make lithium-ion batteries. The Company’s primary emphasis is the development of the advanced stage Authier Lithium Project in Quebec. The Authier Project is 45 kilometers northwest of the city of Val d’Or, a major mining service center in Quebec. Authier mineralization is hosted in a spodumene-bearing pegmatite intrusion with more than 18,000 meters of drilling in 139 holes.

The Authier Lithium Project has advanced, near term development potential. It has a Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS) demonstrating technical and economic viability. The Project area comprises 19 mineral claims totaling 653 hectares. It extends 3.4 kilometers in an east-west, and 3.1 kilometers in a north-south direction, respectively. The location of the Mineral claims is over Crown Land. Sayona Mining completed greater than 8,000 meters of drilling during 2016 and 2017.

The Authier Lithium Project is amenable to simple open-cut mining and processing methods. The project is in close proximity to development infrastructure. In July 2016, Sayona acquired 100 percent of the Authier project for CAD$4 million. In addition, the Company controls a portfolio of lithium and graphite exploration projects in Western Australia.

Concerning Western Australia, Sayona Mining has 17 tenements in the Pilbara Region, covering a total area of 1918km2. Of these, nine were acquired by way of a deal with Great Sandy, with the Mallina Project – E47/2983, being the flagship project.

The East Kimberley Graphite Project is Sayona’s strategic entry into the graphite market. In 2015, the Company announced a strategic entry into the large flake graphite market through securing a large ground position in the East Kimberley area of Western Australia. The Kimberley region is a proven province for high purity, large flake graphite.

The East Kimberley project is 240 kilometers south of Wyndham Port and 220 kilometers south-south-west of the regional center, Kununurra. The Project includes one granted tenement and three separate tenement applications. The Project covers 278 km2. It comprises two areas, Keller and Corkwood. Sayona Mining has 100 percent of the graphite interests across four tenements in the East Kimberley, following the completion of two option-to-purchase agreements.

This past June, Sayona Mining reported the start of a testing program to produce lithium carbonate and lithium hydroxide from the Authier pilot plant lithium concentrate. The Company recently completed a pilot plant program that processed five tons of Authier drill core into greater than 400 kilograms of spodumene concentrate.

This program demonstrated that a 6 percent Li2O concentrate could be produced at a metallurgical recovery of 79 percent. SGS Canada, Inc. will perform the downstream testing program.

Sayona Mining Limited (DMNXF), closed Monday's trading session at $0.013, up 18.1818%, on 372,770 volume with 4 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 182,352 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0035/$0.0215.

A.I.S. Resources Limited (AISSF)

Wall Street Analyzer, Stockhouse, Barchart, Business Insider, The Street, YCharts, Morningstar, MarketWatch, InvestorsHub, GuruFocus, Stockwatch, and Penny Stock Hub reported on A.I.S. Resources Limited (AISSF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

OTCQB-listed, A.I.S. Resources Limited established in 1967. The Company is managed by experienced, highly qualified professionals who have a long record of accomplishment of success in lithium exploration, production and capital markets. They identify and develop early stage projects globally that have strong potential for growth. A.I.S. Resources has its head office in Nassau, Bahamas. The Company also has a Canadian office in Vancouver, British Columbia.

A.I.S. Resources concentrates on developing significant lithium resource projects in Argentina’s world-renowned Lithium Triangle. The Company has two large projects, Chiron and Guayatayoc. The Chiron Project is 2,732 Ha. The Guayatayoc Project is 5,225 Ha. A.I.S. Resources also has its Vilama Project in the Lithium Triangle. Vilama is 2,500 Ha.

Guayatayoc is an approved borate mine. It encompasses all industrial minerals including lithium. Guayatayoc and Guayatayoc III are in Jujuy Province, 5 kilometers from the town of Abralaite in the Puna plateau. This property encompasses about 5,000 hectares of the Guayatayoc Salar that hosts favorable geology for lithium and boron, positioned adjacent to the El Aguillar mountain range, the source of lithium and boron.

The Chiron Project comprises four concessions in the Salar de Quirón in the Province of Salta, roughly 10 kilometers from the township of Pocitos. Very encouraging results from other, close by, explorers classifies the Chiron Project as having considerable prospectivity.

Recently, A.I.S. Resources Limited announced it was granted an exploration license for seismic and drilling at its Chiron project. This allows A.I.S to quickly progress to a TEM seismic program and then drilling immediately thereafter.

The Company entered into a contract with Quantec Geoscience Argentina S.A. to conduct a 19 point TEM (VES) seismic survey in early January 2018. This work will be completed by February 2018. Preliminary tenders have been received from several drilling companies for an eight hole program of 3,200 meters.

A.I.S. Resources has also announced that seismic testing detected three distinct aquifers over a wide-ranging region at its Chiron Project in the Pocitos Salar, Salta Province, Argentina.

Mr. Phil Thomas, A.I.S. Resources’ Chief Operating Officer and Exploration Director stated: "This initial seismic data from Chiron based on the TEM geophysics strongly supports our case for acquiring these strategic concessions. Together with our Guayatayoc Project to the northwest in Jujuy province, where we've made excellent progress with our pilot plant production chemistry, A.I.S. is on track for a breakthrough year as an emerging new producer in the lithium brine space in Argentina."

A.I.S. Resources Limited (AISSF), closed Monday's trading session at $0.04343, up 60.8519%, on 235,915 volume with 27 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 28,616 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.008/$0.094999998.

The QualityStocks Company Corner

Knightscope, Inc.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Knightscope, Inc..

InvestorBrandNetwork, a multifaceted communications organization engaged in connecting companies to the investment community, on Friday announced Knightscope’s achievement in setting a new record as the single largest round on StartEngine. According to the update, Knightscope, with more than 10,000 investors, over $40 million raised since inception and several Fortune 1000 clients with prepaid contracts, is poised to be an industry leader in the future of public safety and security. Knightscope has opened investing to the public on StartEngine at $8 per share. “As the entire nation is focused on public safety and ‘robots are immune’ – we certainly find ourselves in a unique set of circumstances,” William Santana Li, chairman and CEO of Knightscope, stated in the news release. “We are profoundly grateful for the over 10,000 investors in Knightscope who are supporting our mission to make the United States of America the safest country in the world.” To view the full press release, visit http://ibn.fm/bEm88.

Knightscope, Inc., founded in 2013 and based in Mountain View, California, is a leader in the development of autonomous security capabilities and are on target to disrupt the $500 billion security industry. Knightscope’s technology uniquely combines self-driving technology, robotics and artificial intelligence.

Knightscope designs and builds Autonomous Security Robots (ASRs) that provide 24/7/365 security to the places you live, work, visit and study. The company’s client list covers public institutions and commercial business operations, including ten Fortune 1000 companies to date. These ASRs have been proven to enhance safety at hospitals, logistics facilities, manufacturing plants, schools and corporations. ASRs act as highly cost-effective complementary systems to traditional security and law enforcement officials, providing an additional advantage by continuing to offer uninterrupted patrolling capabilities across the country, despite the pandemic (note: robots are immune).

The company’s ASRs have assisted in the arrest of suspects involved in crimes ranging from armed robbery to hit-and-runs. Their machine-embedded thermal scanning capability even aided in preventing the breakout of a major fire.

The company has achieved several milestones since its creation in 2013, including:

  • Establishing itself in a 15,000-square-foot facility located in Mountain View, California, in the heart of Silicon Valley, where Knightscope designs, engineers and builds its technology;
  • Operating for more than one million hours in the field and securing contracts across five time zones;
  • Navigating through the global pandemic without interruption by continuing to operate on a daily basis across the nation and supporting clients classified as essential services; and
  • Continuing its hiring processes despite the current societal and economic disruption.

Growth Capital

With more than 10,000 investors and over $40 million raised since inception, Knightscope is poised to be an industry leader in the future of public safety and security.

The company is presently in the process of raising up to $50 million in growth capital as it prepares for a potential public listing. Knightscope has reserved ticker symbol ‘KSCP’ with Nasdaq.

Investors can buy shares exclusively through the company’s managing broker-dealer, StartEngine (http://nnw.fm/l9GLX) until July 20, 2020. Concurrent with this live offering and contingent upon various factors, including raising a sufficient amount of funds and meeting applicable listing standards, the company intends to begin preparation of an S-1 format Form 1-A and Nasdaq Capital Market application in anticipation of a possible public listing of the stock at the conclusion of the Regulation A+ offering.

Company Mission – The Greater Good

Knightscope’s long-term vision has an eye on the greater good. The company’s mission is to make the United States of America the safest nation in the world while supporting millions of law enforcement and security professionals across the country.

Crime has a negative economic impact in excess of $1 trillion annually. As crime is reduced, positive impacts will likely be realized across several aspects of society, including housing, financial markets, insurance, municipal budgets, local business and safety in general.

Knightscope CEO William Santana Li was recently interviewed by Kevin O’Leary, more commonly known as Shark Tank’s Mr. Wonderful. When asked to explain how the benefits provided by the ASRs outrank a human doing the same job, Li said, “First, just the simple presence of a physical deterrent causes criminal behavior to change. Second, the machines are self-driving cars that patrol all around and recharge themselves. They also generate 90 terabytes of data per year. No human would ever be able to process that. The robots are intended to be eyes and ears for the humans, not a one to one replacement.”

The Knightscope solution to reduce crime combines the physical presence of ASRs, sometimes referred to as proprietary Autonomous Data Machines, with real-time onsite data collection and analysis. The ASRs are fitted with eye-level 360° cameras, thermal scanning, public address announcements and various other features that work in tandem with humans to provide law enforcement officers and security guards unprecedented situational awareness.

Those 90 terabytes of data are then formatted in a useable way, so law enforcement can leverage that information and execute their responsibilities more effectively.

Public Safety Innovation

The company’s recurring revenue business model is set up to mimic the recurring societal problem of crime, and it takes into consideration the fact that innovation in the security and public safety industry has been stagnant for decades. Because the traditional practices of the sector have remained unchanged for years, automation has potential to drive substantial cost savings – and significant improvement in capabilities.

Human security guards are one of both the largest expenses and the largest liabilities for companies. Knightscope’s robots are offered at an effective price of $4 to $11 per hour, compared with approximately $85 and $30 per hour for an armed off duty law enforcement officer and an unarmed security guard, respectively.

This innovation has the potential to drive considerable cost savings. Based on these estimates, manufacturing costs can be recovered as soon as the first year of operation.

Product Offerings

The company has four patents and a framework of unique intellectual property. Knightscope currently offers a K1 stationary machine, a K3 indoor machine and a K5 outdoor machine. A K7 multi-terrain four-wheel version is in development.

The ASRs autonomously patrol client sites without the need for remote control, providing a visible, force multiplying, physical security presence to help protect assets, monitor changes in the area and deter crime. The data is accessible through the Knightscope Security Operations Center (KSOC), an intuitive, browser-based interface that enables security professionals to review events generated by the ASRs providing effectively ‘mobile smart eyes and ears’.

The ASRs and all the related technologies were developed ground up by the Company and are Made in the USA.

DarioHealth Corp. (NASDAQ: DRIO)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight DarioHealth Corp. (DRIO).

DarioHealth (NASDAQ: DRIO), a pioneer in the global digital therapeutics market, today announced its entry into a new strategic partnership with Williams Medical to make the DarioHealth Remote Patient Monitoring (“RPM”) digital therapeutics platform available to Healthcare Professionals (“HCPs”) across the United Kingdom and Ireland. According to the update, Dario's turn-key RPM solution integrates the company's existing open platform, application technology, and the DarioEngage coaching platform, to allow Healthcare Professionals to monitor their patients remotely. To view the full press release, visit http://ibn.fm/EnSTL

New York and Israel-based DarioHealth Corp. (NASDAQ: DRIO) leads global digital therapeutics (DTx) with its popular, smartphone-centered personalized chronic illness management software-as-a-service (SaaS). The company’s strategic advantages include:

  • AI-powered digital solutions that drive durable behavior change in chronic disease patients, and
  • Personalized user experience at scale to make behavior change the path of least resistance.

Approximately $3 trillion in annual U.S. costs associated with chronic illnesses like diabetes, hypertension and obesity are largely preventable with behavioral therapies. Formerly limited to periodic office visits, these therapies can now scale to millions with tech-enabled, continual and remote health monitoring, as well as AI-driven digital and live coaching. This is all possible while still maintaining the personalization required for success in reducing illness and its related effects and costs.

Roughly 51,000 active, paying users manage their health with Dario’s platform that combines smartphone-connected vitals measurement, remote patient monitoring (RPM), lifestyle management tools, and AI-driven and human coaching to deliver improved clinical outcomes.

Among the most downloaded medical apps, the Dario platform is rated at 4.9 stars on the Apple App Store and features 11,000 reviews, along with a Net Promoter Score (a measurement of consumers’ willingness to recommend the product to others) that’s the highest in its field.

Company Strategy

Clinical studies demonstrate Dario’s direct improvement on users’ health measures like H1AC scores (diabetes) and blood pressure (hypertension).

Patient engagement in therapies leads to health success. Dario’s platform centers on continual maximization of patient engagement through personalization, including ‘nudges’ and live, AI-generated responses to health measures provided by Dario’s smartphone-connected medical devices.

Proprietary data analysis provides valuable insights that not only improve health care providers’ medical capabilities but, through artificial intelligence, encourage patients to take evidence-based and highly personalized preventative measures that reduce risk, emergency room visits and preventable hospitalization.

Dario is now deploying its successful B2C platform in B2B2C, targeting employers and health plans with competitive advantages in cost, software and hardware.

The company estimates an annual addressable U.S. market of $72 billion, only 1% of which has been penetrated with digital therapeutics.

The strategic transition to B2B2C (from exclusively B2B) is intended to accelerate revenue growth by reducing Dario’s cost per acquisition per user and expanding margins.

Dario’s commitment to aggressive growth is also shown by its appointment of a new president, chief medical officer and head of sales for North America, all from a highflyer behavioral health company.

Key growth drivers planned include expansion of the company’s paying B2C subscriber base; lateral expansion into other chronic conditions that overlap with its core diabetes populations, such as hypertension, obesity and depression; and increased B2B2C penetration.

Financial Highlights

The company plans to leverage a massive opportunity for growth, with a global addressable market for digital therapeutics of roughly $108 billion. In the U.S. alone, that number is estimated at $72 billion, and only about 1% of that market has been penetrated.

Dario’s strategic transition to an SaaS membership business model increased gross profit by 87% in Q1 2020, as compared to the prior year. Membership revenue increased from 27.1% to 46.7% in the same period. The company is seeing improved operating efficiencies as it shifts focus to the B2B2C business model, and it expects average revenue per user per month (ARPU), which was $6 and $25 in 2019 and 2020, respectively, to reach $70.

Value to Consumers and Businesses

Dario continually evaluates and optimizes the value and return its platform delivers to consumers and businesses.

Consumers seeking to understand how their everyday behavior impacts their personal health and chronic conditions benefit from actionable feedback on how to improve health and better collaborate with health care providers.

Businesses looking to increase employee satisfaction, loyalty and productivity with fewer health-related absences take advantage of Dario’s services for employers.

Health care providers improve patient compliance using the platform’s interactive services that allow for greater monitoring, which improve engagement with patients at the right times and with the right treatments.

Health plans can leverage DarioHealth’s solutions to improve patient outcomes and lower costs.

Recent Studies

The company recently presented the results of two new studies at the American Diabetes Association’s 80th Scientific Sessions, which showed sustained improvements in blood glucose levels and blood pressure among users of its digital therapeutic platform for chronic diseases. The results of these two studies demonstrate that the use of Dario’s therapeutic platform promotes behavioral modification, enhanced individual engagement and improved clinical outcomes.

Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) Agreements

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services recently approved RPM codes for Medicare patients, which enables physicians to bill for between-visit patient care.

This simplifies implementation of the company’s open and scalable AI-driven platform and further supports transition to the company’s high-margin, recurring SaaS model targeting B2B2C revenue channels.

Emergency COVID-19 FDA Guidelines Allow Self-Test Blood Glucose Meters

In an effort to preserve personal protective equipment (PPE) and reduce contact between health care providers and patients in hospital settings due to COVID-19, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recognized that home-use blood glucose meters, including Dario’s smartphone-connected metering device, may be used by patients with diabetes who are hospitalized due to COVID-19 to check their own blood glucose levels and provide the readings to the health care personnel caring for them.

As a result, hospitals can now allow patients to self-test using their Dario blood glucose testing strips and smartphone-connected devices, or hospitals can issue patients Dario devices upon admission for COVID-19-related conditions.

Irregularities in blood glucose levels are suspected as a factor in the increased severity of potentially deadly COVID-19 complications. As such, a high priority is being placed on stabilization of patients’ blood glucose levels.

Awards and Recognition

DarioHealth’s Blood Glucose Monitoring System was voted as the ‘Best Glucometer for Data Management’ by Top Ten Reviews. Jeph Preece, senior editor at Top Ten Reviews, said, “The Dario app is the best data management system that I’ve seen. Compared to apps by popular brands, Dario’s system looks and feels like it’s years ahead of the curve.”

‘The Global Digital Health 100’, an annual award sponsored by the reputable Journal of Health, recognized DarioHealth as a leader among health technology companies demonstrating the greatest potential to change the way that health care is delivered.

DarioHealth Corp. (DRIO), closed Monday's trading session at $6.91, up 12.9085%, on 123,250 volume with 487 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 72,701 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $3.01999998/$13.1260004.

Trxade Group Inc. (NASDAQ: MEDS)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Trxade Group Inc. (NASDAQ: MEDS).

Trxade Group (NASDAQ: MEDS) recently released a corporate presentation that highlights the company’s major milestones, increased revenues and earnings, and the growing popularity of its pharmaceutical platform (http://nnw.fm/O6uf8). To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/NT0Lj

Trxade Group Inc. (NASDAQ: MEDS) is an integrated pharmaceutical services company that offers a unique combination of a web-based purchasing platform (www.trxade.com) for transactions between independent pharmacists and drug distributors (B2B); a network of pharmacies with E-Hub software; a mail order pharmacy; and warehouse and drug delivery services. This synergistic combination of product offerings and superior data analytics is poised to benefit all stakeholders and consumers within the pharmaceutical industry.

Trxade will leverage and scale its fully integrated model to execute the following growth strategies:

  • Increase share of pharmacist drug purchasing
  • Additional SKUs and expand product breath
  • Partner with Specialty and International Mfg.
  • Expand mail order licenses to all 50 states
  • Scale Delivmeds for consumer delivery nationwide
  • Integration with telemedicine
  • M&A Opportunities within drug value chain

Founded in 2010 and headquartered in Tampa, Florida, Trxade’s overarching corporate strategy is to penetrate the existing retail independent pharmacy marketplace and diversify the company’s pharmaceutical mix with additional specialty and acute care products. Trxade is advancing on this mission by focusing on three key niches in the health care market.

Business-to-Business (B2B)

The $330 billion U.S. pharmaceutical industry is comprised of more than 65,000 pharmacy facilities and 1,500 state-licensed suppliers. Roughly 24,000 of these facilities are independent pharmacies, which collectively spend approximately $93 billion a year on branded and generic drugs.

Trxade targets these independent pharmacies, leveraging a robust, “E-Bay/Kayak-like” technology platform with optimum buyer/seller pricing algorithms, product availability, and predictive data analytics features.

Trxade currently serves and transacts with more than one-third (10,250) of these independent pharmacies and facilitates over $10 million of drug purchases a month!

Consumer

Trxade also targets the “consumer side” of the pharmaceutical industry, aiming to lower prescription drug costs by attacking the inefficient value chain; offering drug price transparency and efficient buying; and, delivering drugs DIRECT to independent pharmacists and consumers.

The company operates a full-service mail order pharmacy for U.S. consumers, as well as a mobile app called “Delivmeds” (http://www.delivmeds.com) which enables SAME DAY home delivery of dispensed prescriptions.

Retail

Trxade’s Managed Services Organization (“TrxadeMSO”) enables its member independent retail pharmacies to get patients, process orders, and deliver or ship prescriptions to patients. TrxadeMSO provides access to encompassing network of pharmacies through the E-Hub software, allowing for timely and comprehensive medication fulfillment.

These offerings ensure the best-suited pharmacy receives the patient’s information, thereby ensuring appropriate medication coverage based on the patient’s location, payor coverage, and medication access/inventory. This will save the clinicians and their staff time as they benefit from efficiency and enhanced workflow management in script processing and fulfillment.

Health Care Market

The U.S. health care market currently hovers near $4 trillion and is expected to grow as the general population ages. This growth will have greater impact on consumers as out-of-pocket expenses also rise. Additionally, drug costs are paced to increase faster than the overall health care and well above inflation.

Drug pricing is variable, and reimbursement is squeezing profits. This provides significant opportunity for the Trxade model of price visibility and profit optimization.

Trxade’s fair online market platform targets the nation’s retail community and independent pharmacies, of which there are approximately 24,000 nationwide. TRxADE has found that independent pharmacies, in order to be cost-effective, often operate with minimal staff and conduct up-to-the minute price checks. The TRxADE S2P platform gives these pharmacists the ability to easily compare the price of drugs offered by various suppliers and select the most favorable deals, saving money by taking advantage of best purchase pricing.

TRxADE’s programs include:

  • TRxADE Exchange, which opens and widens the distribution channel to the retail, community pharmacy. A purchasing pharmacy can view products from manufacturers, buying groups, and wholesalers on a real-time and continuous basis. This approach significantly enhances the competitive spirit of the exchange where the lowest price exists for each product at any given point in time. TRxADE has become a competitive tool for all progressive entities and is recognized for its easy searching of hard-to-find generic pharmaceuticals at substantially reduced prices.  
  • RX Guru™ is an industry-leading price prediction model that integrates product shortage insight into pharmacy acquisition benchmarks (“PAC”) to ascertain trends and pricing variances that result in significant purchasing opportunities. RX Guru affords members the opportunity to continuously benefit from real price purchasing opportunities that are concealed from the rest of the industry. 
  • Product Shortage Database – TRxADE maintains the most comprehensive retail, specialty and acute care pharmaceutical product shortage database in the country. Other industry competitors mainly restrict their efforts to specialty and acute care product shortages and narrowly research oral generic products. TRxADE’s advanced prediction tools help members source those hard-to-find products at affordable costs in a timely and easy-to-search process. 

Management Team 

Trxade’s management team is rich in expertise within the pharmaceutical supply chain and is supported by a base of advisors and contractors who are experts in related fields of the pharmaceutical sector.

Predictive Oncology (NASDAQ: POAI) was featured today in a publication from BioMedWire examining how The most common cause of hereditary colorectal (colon) cancer is Lynch Syndrome (“LS”). People with Lynch Syndrome have a 70% higher risk of developing colorectal cancer in their lifetime than the general population, and colorectal cancer is the leading cause of death among cancer cases in the U.S. Additionally, people with LS often develop colorectal cancer at much younger ages compared to the healthy population. 

Predictive Oncology (POAI) is a knowledge-driven precision medicine company focused on applying data and artificial intelligence (AI) to personalized medicine and drug discovery. The company applies its smart tumor profiling and AI platform to extensive genomic and biomarker patient data sets to build predictive models of tumor drug response to improve clinical outcomes for the cancer patients of today and tomorrow. The company has several tools that support its mission of bringing precision medicine to the treatment of cancer.

Through its subsidiaries, Predictive Oncology’s portfolio of assets includes the following:

  • A database of clinically validated historical and outcome data from patient tumors
  • An in-house Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA)-certified lab
  • A “smart” patient-derived tumor profiling platform
  • An in-house bioinformatics artificial intelligence (AI) platform
  • A new computerized approach growing tumors in the lab to rapidly develop patient specific treatment options
  • An FDA-approved fluid collection and disposal system

Using these resources, and in collaboration with key players in the pharmaceutical, diagnostic and biotech industries Predictive Oncology is working to determine the best pathways for more individualized and effective cancer treatment.

Subsidiaries

Predictive Oncology leverages the synergies of its three wholly owned subsidiaries to bring precision medicine to the diagnosis of cancer.

Helomics applies artificial intelligence to its rich data gathered from the company’s trove of more than 150,000 tumors to personalize cancer therapies for patients as well as drive the development of new targeted therapies in collaborations with pharmaceutical companies. This database, the largest of its kind in the world, is comprised of ovarian, head and neck, colon and pancreas tumors. Helomic’s CLIA-certified lab provides clinical testing that assists oncologists in individualizing patient treatment decisions, by providing an evidence-based roadmap for therapy.

In addition to its proprietary precision oncology platform, Helomics offers boutique CRO services that leverage its TruTumor™ patient-derived tumor models coupled to a wide range of multi-omics assays (genomics, proteomics and biochemical), and an AI-powered proprietary platform (D-CHIP) to provide a tailored solution to its clients’ specific needs.

TumorGenesis is developing a new, rapid approach to growing tumors in the laboratory without the use of rats or mice, allowing for the identification of biomarkers indicative of cancer. This methodology “fools” the tumor into thinking it is still in the body. As a result, the tumor reacts as it naturally would, thereby increasing the accuracy of the biomarker. Once the biomarkers are identified, they can be used in TumorGenesis’ Oncology Capture Technology Platforms which isolate and helps categorize an individual patient’s heterogeneous tumor samples to enable development of patient-specific treatment options.

Skyline Medical’s patented, FDA-cleared STREAMWAY® System is the first true, direct-to-drain fluid disposal system designed specifically for medical applications such as radiology, endoscopy, urology and cystoscopy procedures. The STREAMWAY system is changing the way healthcare facilities collect and dispose of potentially infectious waste fluid by connecting directly to a facility’s plumbing system to automate the collection, measurement and disposal of waste fluids.

The STREAMWAY minimizes human intervention for better safety and improves compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and other regulatory agency safety guidelines. The STREAMWAY eliminates canisters, carts and evacuated bottles, which reduces overhead costs and minimizes environmental impact by helping to eliminate the approximately 50 million potentially disease-infected canisters that go into landfills annually in the United Sates.

Skyline has achieved sales in five of the seven continents through both direct sales and distributor partners.

Competitive Advantage

Precision medicine has become the holy grail of cancer therapeutics. Data driven predictive models of tumors and their responses are critical in both new drug development and individualized patient treatment. The race has begun to model various tumors, which takes 5 to 7 years of clinical evaluation to establish historical and outcome data.

Predictive Oncology enjoys significant competitive advantage. The company already has a vast historical collection of tumors and related data, plus the ability to obtain existing associated outcome data. While others wait for outcome data, Predictive Oncology is in a unique and powerful position, working to deliver the promise of precision medicine to reality. Predictive Oncology already has the clinical data, including how a tumor responded to certain drugs, an in-house bioinformatics AI platform, and only needs to do the tumor sequencing. The significance is underscored by the collaboration with UPMC Magee-Women’s Hospital, designed to reveal which mutations responded to which drug then develop powerful predictive models for future testing and treatment.

LexaGene Holdings Inc. (TSXV: LXG) (OTCQB: LXXGF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight LexaGene Holdings Inc. (TSXV: LXG) (OTCQB: LXXGF).

LexaGene Holdings Inc. (TSX.V: LXG) (OTCQB: LXXGF) was featured today in a publication from BioMedWire examining how Clinical trials may sometimes be so cumbersome, especially when you are working on it alone. Successful clinical trials require the help of a good Contract Research Organization (“CRO”). The right CRO will add great value to your research, especially while dealing with critical elements.

LexaGene Holdings Inc. (TSXV: LXG) (OTCQB: LXXGF) is a molecular diagnostics company that develops genetic analyzers for rapid detection of pathogens at the point-of-need.

Based in the greater-Boston, Massachusetts area, the company’s fully automated genetic analyzer for pathogen detection, the MiQLab™, is designed to deliver reference-quality data with ease of use. MiQLab’s technology screens samples for up to 27 different targets at once—looking for pathogens and antimicrobial resistance factors—and returns results in approximately one hour. It is designed to be operated at the site of sample collection to avoid the delay associated with shipping and manually processing samples. This technology is designed for use in multiple markets, including human and veterinary diagnostics, as well as food safety testing ($12.9B, $2.2B, and $23.4B markets, respectively).

Portfolio Benefits

Rapid, automated pathogen detection

LexaGene’s MiQLab pathogen detection system offers rapid and sensitive testing to markets in need of better vigilance against pathogens that could endanger health and harm public safety and the bottom line. The company’s disruptive technology is on-demand and offers results in approximately an hour.

End users collect a sample, load it onto the MiQLab genetic analyzer with a sample preparation cartridge, enter a sample ID and press ‘go’.

MiQLab is open-access, which allows users to easily customize their own tests, in addition to running the company’s own validated tests. No comparable technology exists on the market today for automating customized testing. The open-access market is over $20 billion in value and includes industries like pharma and biotech that currently need an automated method of performing PCR testing in a cost-efficient way.

Improved COVID-19 Testing

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to pose a threat to global safety, the need for improved testing procedures has been well established. LexaGene’s technology is automated and designed to be used at the point-of-need, thereby avoiding the 12- to 24-hour shipping time. Plus, it performs sample preparation and the gold standard RT-PCR chemistry for exceptional data quality in about one hour.

Because LexaGene’s open-access instrument can be rapidly configured to detect novel pathogens, it is ideally suited to prevent pandemic spread with its easily deployed testing that facilitates rapid quarantine-related decision making.

This speed is in stark contrast to competitor point-of-care technologies that have reagents pre-embedded into complex and expensive cartridges that are only manufactured at specialized production sites – making it impossible to rapidly meet a swift increase in demand.

According to Dr. Jack Regan, LexaGene’s CEO and founder, the world needs easy-to-use, fully automated pathogen detection instruments operating at points-of-need that can be equipped with tests to detect a novel pathogen within a week of knowing its genetic sequence. For this pandemic, the lack of such technology forced the majority of testing to occur in distant reference laboratories, making rapid decisions on quarantine impossible and making the likelihood of successful containment remote.

Regan explained in a press release (http://nnw.fm/Vz5Ju), “LexaGene expects to be the first company to commercialize an automated open-access microfluidic technology designed for use at the point-of-need that can be configured to detect a novel pathogen in just a week’s time of its emergence – for use on-site to return results in one hour – and improve our chances of successful containment.”

Market Potential

LexaGene’s technology has a wide range of applications across many other markets, including biotech and pharma testing, water quality monitoring, agricultural testing, biodefense, and use at point-of-need at border crossings, military bases, aircraft carriers and cruise ships.

Markets for customized testing solutions are poised for significant growth. Industry analysts forecast considerable expansion of many of LexaGene’s potential target markets in the coming years, including:

  • The genotyping sector, forecast to reach a valuation of $31.9 billion by 2023;
  • PCR assays, expected to make up a $7 billion market opportunity by 2026;
  • The sample prep market, forecast to eclipse $9.3 billion by 2025;
  • Water quality monitoring, set to grow to $1.59 billion by 2022; and
  • Agricultural testing, anticipated to reach $6.29 billion by 2022.

LexaGene’s patented microfluidic system was invented by company CEO Regan, a leading scientist who developed a bio-warfare surveillance instrument that has been adopted by the Department of Homeland Security. Regan is also known for developing an instrument that detects respiratory pathogens from nasal swab samples. The development of these instruments was supported by $20 million in government funding.

Management Team

LexaGene’s experienced leadership team drives company growth with a focus on innovation, pursuing unique market opportunities and providing shareholder value.

Dr. Jack Regan, Chief Executive Officer & Director, is the inventor of the company’s flagship automated pathogen detection technology, the MiQLab. Before founding LexaGene, he led a team of scientists at Bio-Rad Laboratories (NYSE: BIO) in developing tests for detecting pathogens, cancer and neurological disorders using droplet digital PCR. Prior to Bio-Rad, Regan helped QuantaLife, a startup company, bring its product from concept to commercialization, where it was subsequently acquired by Bio-Rad. He has also worked at Applied Biosystems/Life Technologies on automated sample preparation and did his post-doctoral training at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. His doctoral training at the University of California San Francisco focused on influenza viral replication.

Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD).

Sugarmade (OTCQB: SGMD), a product and branding marketing company investing in operations and technologies with disruptive potential, released June numbers for its burgeoning BudCars Cannabis Delivery Service. Of note in the report were sales that topped more than $500,000 and impressive growth for the third consecutive month. Also today, CannabisNewsWire released a report on the company detailing how SGMD is building a diverse brand portfolio through strategic, accreditive acquisitions. The company’s most recent acquisition, BudCars Cannabis Delivery Service, is one such move that is driving success. To view the full article, visit: http://cnw.fm/TvySR. Additionally, the company was featured in the 420 with CNW by CannabisNewsWire. The first half of 2020 has been brutal. After being discovered in Wuhan, China in late 2019, the coronavirus quickly spread to Europe and the U.S., and by late March, billions of people across the world were under lockdown. All but the most essential businesses were ordered to shut down, and within a month, the U.S. was approaching Great Depression era levels of unemployment. The travel and service industries were especially hit, and they have shouldered most of the job losses.

Sugarmade, Inc. (SGMD) is headquartered in Monrovia, California, where the company recognizes new opportunities in the cannabis delivery space and in the market for supplies to the quick-service restaurant industry – both of which have fast-changing dynamics due to the recent outbreak of coronavirus in the United States.

The Coronavirus Cannabis Boom Market

Retailers across the nation are closing their doors and curtailing operations due to the coronavirus pandemic, inherently pinching sales. In the California cannabis sector, however, business has never been better – especially relative to home delivery.

California’s cannabis industry continues to operate, and media reports reveal booming cannabis sales as the state’s citizens stay home to wait out current events. The Los Angeles Times recently published the headline, “Marijuana Sales on Fire amid Virus Outbreak; New York Post “Cannabis sales hit new highs”; USA Today “American Stock Up on Pot” Fox News “California marijuana sales surge”; and ABC News Cannabis Shops thrive in coronavirus pandemic.

The state of California benefits from the ultra-high taxes paid by the highly regulated cannabis industry, and has thus deemed cannabis companies as “essential” businesses, allowing for full operations to continue. While pot shops are seeing strong foot traffic, the real growth action is in-home delivery as consumers seek to embrace social distancing. Many delivery operators are reporting difficulty in meeting demand with sales growth of up to 10% sequentially each week. It is certainly a boom time for the industry.

Sugarmade Growth Strategy

Recognizing new investment and operational opportunities within California’s cannabis market, Sugarmade is strategizing to take advantage of opportunity specifically in delivery services (non-storefront retailer), manufacturing via co-branding, and selective genetic cultivation. The company is taking a highly selective approach, targeting only the best of these opportunities for company growth.

In line with this strategy is northern California delivery service Budcars, in which Sugarmade owns a 40% interest and an option to gain a controlling interest. Budcars connects consumers with premium products sourced from top-tier farms and extractors, offering a curated menu of fully compliant cannabis products. The company maintains a competitive advantage by sourcing premium cannabis offerings and same-day delivery. In addition to maintaining its own cars, California licenses, and fulfillment center, Budcar orders its premium products in bulk at lower prices, enabling the company to rein in costs and maintain competitive pricing for its customers. Currently serving major communities within the metropolitan area of Sacramento, Budcars plans to continue the expansion of the company’s delivery reach.

Sugarmade plans to continue its expansion into burgeoning new sectors of the cannabis market through the following avenues:

  • Geographic expansion of Budcars delivery scope
  • New delivery geographies
  • Cannabis cultivation as a key component of a hybrid vertical integration strategy
  • Product technology expansion—including products containing exotic and lesser-known cannabinoids

 

Diversified Portfolio

Sugarmade has positive market exposure to cannabis delivery, as well as to the restaurant industry, at a time when these businesses are being force to move toward take-out and delivery models in order to survive.

The company has various business operations in diverse marketplaces, including food, safe packaging and sanitary supplies for various industries, and agricultural supplies. Sugarmade entered the industrial hemp and CBD space by investing in Hempistry, Inc., a privately held Nevada corporation. Hempistry began planting an ultra-high cannabidiol (CBD) industrial hemp strain on a land option it holds on 5,000 acres of prime Kentucky farmland. The strain of industrial hemp being grown by Hempistry is ultra-rich in CBD but contains less than 0.3% of THC, the psychoactive ingredient found in cannabis.

CarryOutSupplies.com, the leader in paper and plastic take-out supplies, serves nationwide customers by offering a wide array of high-quality products that are cost-efficient, custom-made and delivered on time. This business unit currently serves 2,000 quick service restaurants, garnering from 30%-40% of the market share. Sugarmade plans to expand operations via the addition of market share and the introduction of new product offerings.

Market Opportunity

There is little doubt among industry participants, and recently confirmed by Forbes, that California is the single largest cannabis market in the world. The state is expected to produce more than $3.5 billion in cannabis sales during 2020, with growth topping 23% annually. The global industrial hemp market size was estimated at $4.71 billion in 2019 and is expected to register a revenue-based CAGR of 15.8% over the forecast period of 2016-2027, according to Grandview Research. Market growth drivers include the 2018 Farm Bill and society’s increasing knowledge of the benefits of hemp products.

Overall industry growth is great, but specific vertical sector growth is even better. Cannabis delivery is clearly the fastest growing sector of the marketplace and with coronavirus fears the already robust growth rate has accelerated.

Sugarmade seems to be in the right industry at the right time in history.

Management

CEO Jimmy Chan is an experienced business executive instrumental in growing multiple business operations with a strong expertise in international trade and banking, and international manufacturing and importation. He is also the founder of CarryOutSupplies.com, a company that revolutionized the custom-printed paper supplies subsector of the quick-service restaurant industry, which merged with Sugarmade in 2014.

Dedicated to getting the highest caliber of THC and CBD to its customers’ door, the company’s priority is to ensure that they receive the highest quality cannabis product free from logistical hassles. Sugarmade specializes in growing and acquiring innovative brands to maximize value for company employees, shareholders and other stakeholders. Sugarmade believes its future is very bright as the company expands operations within the cultivation sector and rapidly increases its revenue base.

History & Management

Jerrick was founded in 2012. Initially a private media company providing online content through a portfolio of brands, Jerrick’s needs quickly outpaced its initial technology and product offering. In 2015, Jerrick partnered with Thinkmill, a premiere, Australia-based product design and development group to create a content management system (CMS) for its brands; that system evolved into the company’s flagship product, Vocal.

Today, Jerrick’s management team is an impressive group of abstract thinkers united by their passion to solve problems. Leading the team are founder and CEO Jeremy Frommer, and Justin Maury, Jerrick’s president and head of product.

Frommer’s career includes two decades in the financial technology industry, working as a hedge fund and portfolio manager, as well as on the sell-side of the financial industry. Frommer started NextGen Trading, a software development company building proprietary equity trading platforms. NextGen was acquired by Carlin Financial Group of which Frommer became CEO. RBC Capital Markets Corporation eventually bought Carlin. At RBC, Frommer was managing director, head of the Global Prime Services group and a member of the RBC Global Equities Operating Committee.

Maury joined Jerrick in 2013, bringing with him 10 years of experience in the creative industry. Since partnering with Frommer to establish Jerrick, Maury led the company’s product development for more than four years. His passion for the creative arts and technology ultimately yielded the vision for Vocal. During the Jerrick’s early formative years, Maury was a driving force in creating the vision, design and architecture for the Vocal platform and managing the oversight of technology development.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTCQX: PQEFF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Petroteq Energy Inc. (PQEFF).

Petroteq Energy (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF), an integrated oil company focused on the development and implementation of its proprietary oil-extraction and remediation technologies, today announced that both Valkor Engineering and Petroteq’s Chairman Alex Blyumkin have agreed to invest in the Company at a premium to the public market price of its common shares. According to the update, Blyumkin has delivered an irrevocable subscription agreement for US$600,000 for 15,000,000 common shares of Petroteq, each at a price of US$0.04 – a 20% premium to the current market price. To view the full press release, visit http://nnw.fm/CEDSV

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTCQX: PQEFF) is a Canadian-registered, publicly traded company engaged in the development and implementation of proprietary technologies for the environmentally safe extraction of heavy oils from oil sands, oil shale deposits and shallow oil deposits. The company is focused on oil sands exploration and production on mineral leases in Vernal, Utah, and in expanding production capacity at its Asphalt Ridge heavy oil extraction facility in Utah.

Petroteq Energy’s patent-pending application is a closed-loop, solvent-based process, which results in significantly lower per-barrel production costs than those incurred with traditional hot water-based oil sands extraction technologies. This green technology utilizes a small, modular footprint, produces no greenhouse gases, requires no high temperatures, leaves only clean dry sand, and could be deployed to unlock heavy oil deposits located around the world.

The Company’s Asphalt Ridge mineral lease on 2,500-plus acres in northeastern Utah features a large contingent oil sands resource base with an estimated 87 million barrels of oil equivalent. In 2015, the company produced 10,000 barrels of oil from the Utah location and plans to increase production are underway. Utah holds over 32 billion barrels of undeveloped oil sands resources, which are also known as “oil-wet” deposits containing a mixture of sand and a dense, extremely viscous form of petroleum referred to as bitumen or tar. A recent upswing in developing domestic energy sources has intensified interest in technological advances such as Petroteq’s Clean Oil Recovery Technology (CORT) System.

The Company continues to evaluate the development of other medium to heavy oil exploration, production and recovery projects on a global basis through a variety of structured agreements. These opportunities or other arrangements with private and governmental entities that utilize Petroteq Energy’s proprietary licensed technologies are expected to generate a significant return on investment.

The Company’s management team, board of directors and officers form an invaluable cross-section of industry leaders with extensive experience ranging from chemical engineering and solvent research, business development, international project management, entrepreneurial achievements, and senior management for global energy companies in North America and the Middle East. This impressive knowledge base covers both conventional and unconventional oil and gas projects and production, both in upstream and downstream industry sectors.

Petroteq Energy is also participating in a blockchain initiative aimed at solving the global transaction needs of the oil and gas industry through the development of PetroBLOQ. PetroBLOQ recently joined the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (“EEA”), the world’s largest open-source blockchain initiative. Membership with the 200-member EEA represents a wide variety of industries and offers 14 industry-focused, member-driven working groups.

“Joining this community of forward-looking enterprises and blockchain innovators is an important step for PetroBLOQ as we develop transformative solutions for the oil and gas industry,” said Petroteq Energy Chairman Alex Blyumkin.

In addition, Petroteq has joined the American Petroleum Institute (API). The API is the only national trade association representing all facets of the oil and natural gas industry, promoting safety across the industry globally and influencing public policy in support of a strong, viable oil and natural gas industry.

“API has led the development of operating standards for our industry, and we look forward to contributing our experience with oilfield technologies in addition to introducing our PetroBLOQ platform to its members throughout the supply chain,” Blyumkin previously stated.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (PQEFF), closed Monday's trading session at $0.0379, off by 0.524934%, on 510,076 volume with 35 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 888,580 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.017999999/$0.337599992.

Kingman Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: KGS)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Kingman Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: KGS).

Kingman Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: KGS), formerly Astorius Resources Ltd., is engaged in the acquisition, exploration and development of gold and silver properties in North America. The Canada-based company is focused on sourcing and developing high-quality properties in favorable mining locations to advance its diverse portfolio of low-cost, lifelong assets.

Kingman Mine

The Company maintains the following projects:

The Mohave Project: Located in the Music Mountains in Mohave County, Arizona. Approximately 35 miles from the town of Kingman, the property consists of 20 lode claims, including the historic Rosebud Mine. The Company has entered into an option agreement to earn 100% over four years. According to historic mappings of the mine, probable ore is 15,560 tons. Possible (inferred) ore is comprised of 176,000 tons, and additional possible (inferred) ore totals slightly over 1,100,000 tons. The total contained gold ounces for all categories is estimated at 664,000 ounces, and contained silver is estimated at 2,600,000 ounces. The Company has recently completed two underground reconnaissance and sampling programs and is in the process of verifying previous resource estimates.

 

The Cadillac East Property: Located approximately 55 kilometers east of Val d’Or, a hub for exploration and mining activities in the Canadian province of Quebec. The Company acquired a 100% interest in the property from an arm’s length vendor. Cadillac East Property consists of 12 claims, and the Company has an option agreement to earn 100% over three years. Having been the subject of numerous geophysical and geological surveys, the Cadillac East Property has been explored and surveyed by numerous companies as well as by the Quebec government. Exploration work done in 2017 by Exploration Facilitation Unlimited Inc. revealed multiple potential targets for future investigation, as results from the soil program identified value in gold, silver, copper, zinc and nickel.

Kingman Minerals is focused on enhancing shareholder value as it continues exploring potential assets and acquiring strategic gold targets. The company recently commissioned mining consulting services company Burgex Mining Consultants Inc. to complete two underground gold exploration programs in the historic Rosebud Mine. Burgex specializes in mineral exploration, mining claim staking, landman services, mining consulting, and the access and documentation of abandoned mine sites throughout the western United States and the world. Burgex’s founders have been active in the industry since 2007 and have identified, secured and consulted on hundreds of thousands of acres of mineral properties spanning a wide range of mineral commodities with billions of dollars’ worth of resources and reserves. The Burgex team has been featured in Forbes Magazine as well as on the Discovery Channel and other outlets. Burgex is at the vanguard of industry advancements in safely accessing difficult vertical abandoned mine workings and continues to pioneer new mineral exploration methods with strategic partners throughout the United States and the world.

Gold’s Predicted Rise

The value of gold is currently on an upward climb due to COVID-19’s upending of the global economy, causing governments to expand their balance sheets. In 2019, as a result of the housing and financial crisis, gold saw its best performance since 2010increasing as much as 20% and hitting a top price of $1,549 per ounce in September of that year. Analysts predict its price will continue to climb due to strong buying by central banks, a weakening of the U.S. dollar, and increasing political tensions. A recent Wolfe Research report predicted gold would hit an all-time high, referencing an ounce of gold that commanded a $1,515 asking price. As the value of the U.S. dollar weakens, the demand for gold is inversely rising. Known as a safe-haven asset, gold tends to see increased levels of demand during times of consumer fear or recession.
