QS Energy, Inc. (QSEP)

RedChip, InvestorsHub, Stockopedia, Equity Clock, Stockhouse, MarketWatch, Marketwired, StockInvest.us, The Street, and Small Cap Exclusive reported previously on QS Energy, Inc. (QSEP), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

QS Energy, Inc. is a developer of integrated technology solutions for the energy industry. It develops and commercializes energy efficiency technologies, which help in meeting rising international energy demands, improving the economics of oil extraction and transport, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. QS Energy’s Intellectual Property (IP) portfolio includes 48 domestic and worldwide patents and patents pending. These have undergone development in combination with, and exclusively licensed from, Temple University.

Established in 1998, QS Energy has its head office in Tomball, Texas. The Company’s shares trade on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB. The Company previously went by the name Save the World Air, Inc. It changed its name to QS Energy, Inc. in August of 2015.

The Company’s AOT™ (Applied Oil Technology) is a group of commercial crude oil pipeline flow assurance products designed to undergo installation at pipeline pump stations in the upstream, gathering, and also midstream sectors. AOT™ is an integrated system. It improves critical operational efficiencies for pipeline operators around the world.

QS Energy has its new strategic plan. The core mission of this plan is to hasten market adoption of its AOT™ technology.

AOT™ is an industrial hardware system. It is totally fabricated in the United States. AOT™ lowers the viscosity of unrefined oil employing low wattage electrical fields (electrorheology) to improve flow while in transit through pipelines.

AOT™ technology delivers performance that can be measured in each of the areas of importance in the movement hydrocarbon stream - from reservoir to the point of sale. QS Energy’s AOT™ stand-alone or supplemental pipeline solutions boost flow rates; lessen power consumption; optimize flow assurance; enhance pipeline integrity; and prevent bottlenecks.

The Company is now positioned to complete its development from research and development (R&D) to commercialization. All through 2017, QS Energy worked to improve the efficacy and efficiency of its AOT technology, executing a retrofit program underpinned by lessons learned while operating its equipment on midstream pipelines under commercial operating conditions.

In April of this year, QS Energy entered into a non-binding Letter Of Intent (LOI) with a second South American oil company to test crude oil samples and, subject to laboratory results, negotiate and execute binding demonstration project agreements. The customer operates capacity-constrained pipelines, producing very heavy crudes (approximately API 8°) with high levels of asphaltene.

At present, the customer is relying on a combination of heat and diluent techniques to maintain production. QS Energy states that based on laboratory tests on comparable crude oil samples, AOT should have a major impact.

In Asia, QS Energy is advancing on a potential demonstration project with an Asian oil company.  The project is proceeding, targeting demonstration project operations before year end.

Furthermore, QS Energy applied for federal and provincial grants in Canada related to pipeline efficiency and GHG emissions reductions programs.  The Company’s aim with the project is to supply partial funding of a demonstration project at a Canadian partner site, providing white paper data in support of commercialization and industry acceptance.

QS Energy, Inc. (QSEP), closed Friday's trading session at $0.0899, up 5.76%, on 1,321 volume with 2 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 65,918 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0615/$0.305.

Saracen Mineral Holdings Limited (SCEXF)

Smart Stock Trading Strategies, YCharts, Stockhouse, GoldStockData, OTC Markets, The Subway Trader, 4-Traders, Stockscores, and Stock Market Watch reported on Saracen Mineral Holdings Limited (SCEXF), and we report on Company as well, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Saracen Mineral Holdings Limited engages in the gold mining business in Australia. The Company also explores for nickel deposits. Its production comes from two WA projects - Carosue Dam and its new Thunderbox mine. Both of these operations have long lives with extensive potential for further growth through exploration. Saracen Mineral Holdings is headquartered in Perth, Western Australia (WA).

Saracen’s vision is to join the Australian mid-tier gold producer ranks through doubling production to 300koz p.a. at an AISC (All-in Sustaining Costs) of less than A$1,075/oz, within the next two years.

Concerning its exploration, all of Saracen’s mines are open along strike and at depth. In addition, all mines are shallow with grades increasing at depth.

Saracen Mineral Holdings also has premier Reserve growth - a 40 percent increase to 2.1Moz at key assets next to processing centers. The Company’s Carosue Dam is surrounded by major miners Goldfields and AngloGold.

At Carosue Dam, an under-explored mine corridor presents opportunity for further repeat deposits. Production growth at Carosue Dam is through a potential mill expansion (to roughly 3Mtpa) and introduction of paste fill at the key underground mines to allow for close to full orebody extraction (improve mine recoveries and efficiencies).

Growth opportunities at the Thunderbox mine include Kailis high grade (2.5g/t open pit, soft ore); Thunderbox Stage 2 underground (518koz over 7 years); Bannockburn (roughly 200koz @ 1.5g/t); and also the Thunderbox D Zone (near surface northern cut-back).

Saracen Mineral Holdings has reported another strong quarter (JunQ) to deliver record FY18 production and surpass revised production guidance. The Company reported FY18 gold production of 316,453oz (guidance 310-315koz), with Carosue Dam (CDO) contributing 171.3koz and Thunderbox (TBO) providing 145.2koz.

Saracen is forecasting more production growth in FY19. The Company has upgraded Group guidance to 325-345koz (previously 300koz) at an AISC (All-in Sustaining Costs) of A$1,050-1,100/oz.

Average gold price received of A$1,655/oz provided revenues of approximately A$136M and implied approximately A$459/oz margin. Saracen Mineral Holdings remains debt free. However, the Company retains an undrawn corporate facility.

Saracen Mineral Holdings Limited (SCEXF), closed Friday's trading session at $1.72, up 6.17%, on 300 volume with 1 trade. The average volume for the last 3 months is 872 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $1.08/$1.76.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Green Hygienics Holdings Inc. (GRYN).

Green Hygienics Holdings Inc. (GRYN) was highlighted today in a report by CannabisNewsWire examining the historic countdown to the legalization of recreational marijuana use in Canada ending yesterday, as retail stores opened for the first time to serve adults who wanted to consume this substance, which has been wrapped in a controversy for decades.

Green Hygienics Holdings Inc. (GRYN) is a full-scope, premium cannabis cultivation company targeting the high-end medical and adult-use recreational market. With more than 25 years of experience in agricultural science and innovation, Green Hygienics is establishing itself as a leader in the advancement of science-driven cannabis cultivation systems. The company will grow by generating revenues from the sales of premium grade cannabis products, developing and licensing valuable IP, making strategic acquisitions, and creating trusted global consumer brands.

The company has integrated and is developing its own IP assets related to proprietary systems and apparatus, software, algorithms and custom-engineered hardware. This provides ultimate efficiencies in a commercially controlled cultivation environment. Utilizing the advantages of hybrid-aeroponics, Green Hygienics creates a sterile growing environment that produces consistent, high-quality product while maintaining the lowest possible carbon footprint. The company utilizes state-of-the-art, quality-controlled commercial cultivation methodology to assure production of pharmaceutical-grade cannabis at much higher yields and greatly reduced costs.

Hybrid-aeroponics produces quality cannabis faster than traditional methods since it doesn’t require natural sunlight or soil and can be operational and produce plants anywhere. Plants grown under aeroponic conditions receive water and nutrients directly to their roots via a fine mist in a controlled environment, dramatically reducing spoilage while keeping the product organic and the environment pest-free. The plants are given the exact amount of nutrients and moisture precisely when needed. Green Hygienics maintains ultimate control over every aspect of this cultivation process, which allows the company to operate with conservation of natural resources in mind. The technology that uses 90-95 percent less water and does not require the use of pesticides or fungicides.

Additionally, the company’s state-of-the-art engineered, controlled environments include electrical, mechanical and HVAC designs that meet mandatory fire and energy codes while improving energy efficiency significantly.

Through these practices, Green Hygienics is establishing itself as a leader in the advancement of science-driven cannabis cultivation systems. The company continues to develop and incubate software as well as engineer hardware to provide additional control over the commercial cultivation method. The company’s science-based approach reveals any growth anomalies before the human eye can see them. This makes it possible to monitor all facets of production, identify cultivation problems based upon scientific data, and implement immediate corrective action, if needed.

The future of commercial cannabis cultivation hinges on using science to control the growing environment in order to remain competitive and deliver a premium grade of product on a consistent basis. The company holds a competitive advantage through its ability to produce premium cannabis products at a significantly lower cost per gram than direct competitors and others in the cannabis industry.

Innovations within the sector that create efficiencies and successful brands will become highly valued. Green Hygienics and its forward-thinking management team are constantly studying the market dynamics of the cannabis industry in North America and abroad while actively pursuing possible expansion opportunities. The company is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada and establishing operations in San Diego, California, targeting the $5 billion California cannabis market.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTC: FTSSF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF).

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX-V: FCC; ASX: FCC; OTCQX: FTSSF) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the filing of a technical report supporting the maiden resource estimate for its 100% owned Iron Creek Project in Idaho, USA, originally announced September 26, 2018. Also today, NetworkNewsWire released an Audio Press Release (APR) titled “Cobalt’s Importance Underscored by Critical Minerals Listing, Rising EV Sales,” featuring First Cobalt. To hear the NetworkNewsAudio version, visit: http://nnw.fm/4Igmo. To read the full editorial, visit: http://nnw.fm/xIy5N.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTC: FTSSF), with headquarters in Canada, is the largest land owner in the Cobalt Camp in Ontario with control of over 10,000 hectares (nearly 25,000 acres) of prospective land and 50 historic cobalt/silver mines. The company’s assets include a mill and the only permitted cobalt extraction refinery in North America capable of producing battery material, providing an integrated solution for cobalt projects. First Cobalt began drilling in the historic Cobalt Camp in 2017 and seeks to build shareholder value through new discovery and growth opportunities.

First Cobalt’s 2018 $C7 million drilling program, which includes testing different styles of mineralized areas throughout the Cobalt Camp in more than 10 past-producing mines known to contain cobalt, is a significant expansion over its 2017 exploration activities. The company received positive test drill results from the Bellellen mine location, with early results confirming the presence of high-grade cobalt and nickel, prompting First Cobalt to increase its drilling program at that site. A prospecting sampling program of existing muckpiles around the camp’s historic mines, trenches, pits and surrounding bedrock could provide an early production scenario.

First Cobalt Corp. is moving quickly to leverage its potential against an economic background that estimates global consumption for refined cobalt is set to grow at an average rate of approximately 5 percent per annum for the next 10 years. The electric vehicle market, in particular, is driving this sector since more than 50 percent of the world’s current production of cobalt is used in the manufacture of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. The global lithium-ion battery market, as estimated by Zion Market Research, indicates the value at around USD $31 billion in 2016 and is expected to generate revenue of nearly USD $68 billion by end of 2022, growing at a compound annual growth rate of slightly above 17 percent.

First Cobalt is embracing innovation in the mining sector, utilizing a digital compilation of 100-plus years of mining and geological data spanning the historically prolific Cobalt Mining Camp’s lifespan. First Cobalt’s management team is also assessing the ability of artificial intelligence to accelerate the discovery cycle. As a member of the Mineral Exploration Research Centre (MERC) and Metal Earth Project, First Cobalt conducts regional geophysical surveys for geological interpretation of structures controlling cobalt-silver mineralization.

The company’s clear pathway to production and cash flow generation includes being one of only four fully permitted cobalt extraction refineries in Canada with significant material and processing infrastructure on site. With the price of cobalt increasing significantly and its importance in the growing battery market underpinning a strong long-term demand forecast, First Cobalt Corp. and its mining interests are primed for success.

First Cobalt Corp. President and CEO Trent Mell, a mining executive and capital markets professional with extensive international transactional experience, is joined by a team of reputable and seasoned deal-makers, mine builders and mine operators with decades of global experience in exploration, business development, geoscience, engineering and finance.

First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF), closed the day's trading session at $0.2116, off by 2.35%, on 155,015 volume with 59 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 218,990 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.1983/$1.3041.

Headquartered in Monrovia, California, a city within Los Angeles county, Sugarmade has various business operations in diverse marketplaces including packaging and paper goods for various industries, agricultural supplies.

Sugarmade has expanded into the European hydroponics supply market with a growing base of orders taken through Amazon UK. Over the past few financial quarters, Sugarmade has seen revenue growth patterns expand geographically. As recently as mid-2017, the majority of hydroponic-related revenue growth was seen from California and other West Coast marketplaces, however growth is becoming more geographically dispersed among U.S. states where legalization has eased restriction. This movement into the United Kingdom further expands the base of geographic growth areas for Sugarmade.

Sugarmade recently launched a new corporate initiative in the booming industrial hemp and CBD, committing up to $1 million in capital over the next 12 months to invest in Hempistry, Inc., a privately held Nevada corporation. Hempistry has begun planting an ultra-high cannabidiol (CBD) industrial hemp strain on a land option it holds on 23,000 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 percent of THC, the psychoactive ingredient found in cannabis. The U.S. hemp industry is expected to produce well over $1 billion in revenues in 2018, with a compound annual growth rate of 14 percent through 2022, according to the Hemp Business Journal.

Demand for industrial hemp and products derived from hemp is soaring, with no let-up in sight, which the company sees as a “tremendous opportunity to become a supplier to this fast-growing sector,” said Chairman and CEO Jimmy Chan, who is also an advisor and minority shareholder of Hempistry.

Sugarmade’s investment into the market for high-CBD hemp is expected to be highly accretive for common shareholders in two ways. First, Sugarmade’s investment will be in the form of common shares in Hempistry allowing Sugarmade common shareholders to possibly benefit from any future initial public offering of Hempistry. Second, Sugarmade is expected to sign a supply agreement with Hempistry for cultivation supplies, which would be additive to corporate revenues.

Sugarmade has also completed a master market agreement with industry leader BizRight Hydroponics, Inc., a leading marketer and manufacturer of cannabis and hydroponic growth supplies, which offers a range of hydroponics-related products including: HPS grow lights, electronic ballasts, HPS bulbs, nutrient mixes, environmental control products, pH measurement and calibration solutions and storage products. BizRight operates the ZenHydro.com website and other e-commerce properties and sells various products to distributors and retailers. BizRight is expected to produce in excess of $30 million in revenues during 2017, with substantial growth expected for 2018.

Sugarmade division 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 percent of the market share. Sugarmade plans to expand operations via the addition of market share and the introduction of new product offerings.

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.

Though boasting a wide range of health benefits, cannabinoids are traditionally poorly absorbed by the body’s gastrointestinal tract. To achieve higher effectiveness, consumers usually default to smoking. Lexaria provides a superior administration method by delivering hemp oil ingredients – or through locally licensed partners, cannabis oil ingredients – through a patented process within food products.

The key differentiator between Lexaria’s products and others on the market is the company’s disruptive technology proven to enhance the absorption of orally ingested cannabinoids while improving the “unusual” taste of cannabinoids and allowing for lower overall dosing with higher efficacy. Lexaria is primarily a B2B enterprise, and is in licensing discussions or has existing agreements with companies in Canada, the largest-market states in the USA, and internationally. Lexaria has also developed its own brands partly for demonstration purposes, utilizing its patented technology to infuse hemp oil ingredients within lipids in popular foods. These brands include ViPova™, Lexaria Energy Foods, and TurboCBD™.

In 2015, Lexaria commissioned an independent, third-party lab to test its technology under carefully monitored in vitro conditions. Results showed that the company’s technological process and lipid formulation both improve intestinal absorption as much as 500%. Additional follow-up studies in human volunteers suggested that Lexaria’s processed, lipid-infused tea may be more effective in an actual gastrointestinal system than in an in vitro simulation with results indicating as much as a 1,000% increase in overall absorption.

Lexaria also has an R&D partnership with the Canadian government’s National Research Council. That R&D is expected to characterize molecular bond formation theorized to occur with Lexaria’s unique technology between the lipid delivery agents and the bioactive substances it processes and combines. Results from this R&D are expected to support accelerating B2B relationships – not just in the cannabis industry, but also to support new B2B business relationships in the fields of vitamins, NSAIDs, and nicotine delivery. All of these sectors expected to offer additional future growth potential.

Aside from testing, a critical component of Lexaria Bioscience’s business model is a strong intellectual property portfolio that utilizes the most commonly used food processing techniques. As of 2017, the company’s patent portfolio includes 19 patent applications filed and pending in more than 40 countries around the world. The most recent patent applications expand Lexaria’s lipophilic food and beverage composition claims to include the processing of cannabinoids, vitamins, NSAIDs and nicotine in many of the world’s most commonly used food processing ingredients. Lexaria is expecting additional new patent awards both in the USA and internationally in 2017 and 2018.

Royalties play a vital role in Lexaria’s revenue-generating business model. The company out-licenses its technology (royalty) to third party partners, and has several deals signed and/or pending. The company’s growth initiatives are guided by a management team headed by CEO Chris Bunka, a serial entrepreneur who has raised more than $50 million in working capital for the companies he has led over the course of his career. He is supported by a team of professionals with extensive experience in pharmaceutical and bioscience sectors, invention, toxicology, consumer goods, and other relevant skillsets.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP), closed the day's trading session at $1.75, off by 2.78%, on 199,491 volume with 263 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 225,555 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.33/$2.54.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG).

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (OTC: REFG) is expanding its footprint and taking advantage of opportunity in the state-sanctioned cannabis space. The news segment provided a small tour of the Colorado facility (http://nnw.fm/Pt2sY).” To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/qSa7C.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG), headquartered in Cheyenne, Wyoming, is a first-tier merchant processing cannabis industry pioneer, offering one of the first and only comprehensive card processing operations of its kind to serve the state-sanctioned medical marijuana industry. The company’s state of the art system, which also tracks sales and tax collection, and eliminates the need to deal in cash-only transactions.

Through its robust, closed-loop merchant processing system, the company’s unique “StateSourced” proprietary system enables authorized operation under FinCEN parameters and complies with all regulatory frameworks. StateSourced is tailored to deliver full-spectrum merchant processing services, providing the convenience of modern commercial card processing resources and making it the first operation of its kind geared to the legal cannabis industry.

StateSourced is not a prepaid or gift card, which is an important variable for merchants since standard banking institutions have not offered this form of payment processing to the legal cannabis industry. Federal law still considers marijuana illegal under the Controlled Substances Act, although 29 states and the District of Columbia have legalized the plant either for medicinal or recreational uses or both. This restriction has kept financial institutions at bay since most banks are federally insured and haven’t been inclined to venture into the nascent industry.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions is able to offer its StateSourced card on a state-by-state basis where the card can be used in purchasing product from a legal, authorized vendor, providing a much-needed option for consumers and businesses alike. In another first, the company is collaborating with First Bitcoin Capital Corporation to integrate First Bitcoin’s cryptocurrency ($Weed) with Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions’ StateSourced payment gateway. This collaboration will allow state-licensed marijuana establishments across the nation to accept both StateSourced debit cards and cryptocurrencies such as WeedCoin and Bitcoin.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions president and CEO Jeremy Roberts and his executive team are working with state lawmakers to introduce legislation in an effort to address the growing problems in banking for the medical cannabis industry. For companies in the emerging legal cannabis industry, where retail and non-retail transactions such as vendor payments and payroll are almost exclusively paid for with cash, the solutions offered by StateSourced can help businesses avoid the inherent risks associated with a cash-intensive sector. Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions has also signed its first StateSourced contract with a Las Vegas-based vertically integrated marijuana establishment.

“We’ve completed our transition from development stage to revenue stage,” says Roberts. “We have just started our business development efforts and the market is responding very well. We anticipate having many more, similar releases.”

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions provides end-to-end management across multiple systems for medicinal marijuana operations. The company solves the fragmentation problem experienced by many of these rapidly growing companies by identifying tools that are important to dispensaries and customizing those tools to meet the specific needs of this unique industry.

Medical Cannabis Payment Solutions (REFG), closed the day's trading session at $0.023, off by 8.00%, on 595,735 volume with 42 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 420,423 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0161/$0.092.

ETST has also launched development of proprietary prophylactic therapies utilizing cannabidiol (CBD) to treat various forms of breast cancer.

In October 2017, ETST announced it is cooperating with the Clinique SIDA Amité (AIDS Friendship Clinic) for a mini-clinical trial, the last trial needed before the MSN-2 device, designed for the detection of STIs, enters molecular diagnostic trials. And in November 2017, the company began pre-launch human trials on a new CBD formula to fight against the U.S. opioid epidemic. The new formula, expected to decrease cravings and the negative effects of withdrawal in addicts, is based on industrial hemp CBD mixed with a known natural ingredient proven to help increase dopamine levels. ETST’s medical devices will first be launched in Vietnam, Djibouti and Morocco while the company awaits regulatory permission to enter the North American market.

The company expects to up-list to the OTCQB in early 2018, which management believes will attract well-funded institutional investors and pave the way to becoming the next billion-dollar-in-capitalization company on the OTC markets. Other highlights include completion of the company’s Scientific Advisory Council with a team of recognized scientists, the launching of several CBD-infused edible products and entry into the medical devices market through collaborative partnerships.

Earth Science Tech has signed a collaborate agreement with Laboratories BNK Canada, a private laboratory that will conduct the clinical studies necessary for MSN-2 medical device-related services to meet regulatory requirements. ETST has confirmed the MSN-2 device’s ability to detect chlamydia, and is working to validate similar results for gonorrhea, both highly infectious diseases that often have permanent consequences for patients. ETST will also add testing for trichomoniasis and a complete body fluid panel to detect the different serotypes of the human papillomavirus (HPV) that causes cervical cancer. These additions will help the company create sales opportunities in the global market for diagnostic testing of STDs that Transparency Market Research has indicated will grow to $108 billion by 2019.

Cannabis Therapeutics is in the development stage of two cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical drugs and three cannabinoid-based nutraceutical products targeting a variety of ailments such as anxiety, depression, triple negative breast cancer, and fatty liver disease, among others. Research into the benefits of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid molecules found in the cannabis plant is supported by ETST’s International Application for Provisional Patent titled “Cannabidiol Compositions Including Mixtures and Uses Thereof,” which was filed on October 8, 2015. Cannabis Thera’s R&D efforts are concentrated on developing CBD-based drugs and nutraceutical products and in working to integrate the CBD molecule with existing generic drug molecules to create more efficient medications with fewer and less severe side effects. A report in Hemp Business Journal predicts the CBD consumer market will grow to $2.1 billion by 2020, while other industry experts expect an increase to almost $3 billion by 2021. A recent report by Statista projects the U.S. consumer market for cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals could reach $50 billion by the year 2029.

The management team at Earth Science Tech brings decades of invaluable experience to the nutraceutical, dietary supplement field as well as the life sciences sectors. Nickolas S. Tabraue, who serves as the president, director and chief operating officer, is an industry veteran with extensive knowledge of supplements, retail management, customer service and sales expertise. He is joined by CEO and CSO Dr. Michel Aubé, a microbiologist whose scientific research in sexually transmitted infections, cancer and stem cell biology has been widely published in several prestigious medical journals. Sergio Castillo, chief marketing officer, and Gabriel Aviles, chief sales officer, bring a wealth of marketing and sales experience to Earth Science Tech, which is complemented by Issa El-Cheikh, Ph.D., and his 25 years in the international finance, accounting, planning and execution of large scale transactions in the public and private sectors.

Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO).

Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO) develops, markets and sells proprietary laboratory instrumentation and associated consumables to the life sciences sample preparation market. Sample preparation refers to the wide range of activities that precede most forms of scientific analysis. It is often complex and time-consuming, yet a critical part of scientific research. The market for sample preparation products is currently estimated at $6 billion worldwide.

The Company’s product line can be used to exquisitely control the sample preparation process. It is based on a patented, enabling technology platform called pressure cycling technology (“PCT”). PCT uses alternating cycles of hydrostatic pressure between ambient (14.5 psi) and ultra-high levels (up to 100,000 psi) to safely and reproducibly control critical biological processes, such as the lysis (breakage) of cells, the digestion of proteins, and the inactivation of pathogens.

Pressure BioSciences’ product line is led by its newly released, next-generation Barocycler 2320EXTREME instrument. Named a finalist in the prestigious 2017 R&D Awards (also known as the “Oscars of Innovation”), the Barocycler 2320EXT is already being touted by some key opinion leaders as an essential element of the $1.8 billion U.S. “Cancer Moonshot” program. For example, Professor Phil Robinson, Co-head of the cancer research center of the Children’s Medical Research Institute (Sydney, Australia), said in a recent interview: “We are collecting the whole proteome on 70,000 tumor samples from all classes where complete clinical outcome is known. Due to its unique capabilities, the Barocycler 2320EXT has become a critical part of our program. It is the primary enabler of the high-throughput component of the project. Without this step, our project simply could not be done. In fact, the Barocycler 2320EXT works so well we have just purchased two more.”

Momentum is building when it comes to the potential for using the Company’s unique PCT technology platform. Leading scientists are intrigued by Pressure BioSciences’ approach, which among other attributes, revolutionizes the process of rupturing cells (lysis) for further study, yielding superior biomolecules for investigation. The Company’s technology transcends current methods of breaking open cells, which use chemicals, blades, metal beads, or other damaging and altering methods that can ultimately adversely affect the result for researchers. Pressure BioSciences’ PCT technology utilizes customized, controlled hydrostatic (water) pressure to rupture cells in a chamber, enabling exquisitely customized levels of pressure to optimally break open different types of cells at prescribed pressure levels—something never before accomplished in a commercial setting. Using this pioneering method, the result is a truer, more legitimate sample, which boosts the efficacy of research and the quality of results. The potential impact of this technology on scientific advancement is enormous, enabling research scientists to begin their studies with biological samples of unprecedented integrity, with the potential to improve research outcomes at the earliest, most critical step. PCT can additionally inactivate pathogens (e.g., viruses, bacteria) using hydrostatic pressure, making the samples safer to study—another innovation with astronomical potential for application in a variety of markets.

The Company’s high-pressure instruments for research purposes are marketed throughout the United States, Europe, China and Japan. To date, Pressure BioSciences has installed nearly 300 PCT Systems in over 165 leading academic, government, biotech and pharma laboratories around the world. Its primary applications are in biomarker discovery, forensics, agriculture and pathology. Over 100 scientific papers have been published on the advantages of the PCT platform, which is also being used in the specialized fields of drug discovery and design, bio-therapeutics characterization, soil and plant biology, vaccine development and histology.

Impressive as their biotech business is, there is more to the PBI story. Pressure BioSciences recently received two patents in China for its novel Ultra Shear Technology (UST), a process that has potential in a wide range of industrial applications, including extending the shelf life of some food products and making two insoluble liquids (like oil in water) soluble. Patents have also been filed in many other countries worldwide. UST is a novel technique based on the use of intense shear forces generated from ultra-high-pressure valve discharge.

This important technology has the potential to play a significant role in a number of commercially important areas through its ability to create high-quality, stable nanoemulsions. Scientific studies indicate that improved absorption, higher bioavailability, greater stability, lower surfactant levels and other advantages can be achieved with nanoemulsions – all hugely important factors in the fields of nutraceuticals, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and in various medical products. There is an enormous opportunity in the cannabis market, since the technology can potentially reduce oil droplets containing cannabidiol (CBD) to nanoparticles, after which they can be safely suspended in a stable water solution—something many companies have endeavored to achieve without success. Researchers looking for a way to increase the bioavailability of cannabinoids in the body will find this technology a game changer.

The Company’s UST technology also has possibilities in the production of clean label foods, which are currently processed using several innovative methods, including high-pressure treatments (such as Starbucks’ Evolution line of juices). In 2015, the worldwide market for high-pressure processed (HPP) food was estimated at U.S. $10 billion. UST uses ultra-high pressures and certain valves to generate intense shear forces under controlled temperature conditions to produce nanoemulsions, and which also significantly reduces food-borne pathogens. Pressure BioSciences’ initial focus with this technology will be to evaluate UST for the production of high-quality dairy products and beverages.

Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO), closed the day's trading session at $3.55, up 2.90%, on 2,072 volume with 6 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 2,233 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $2.70/$5.00.

Auscrete’s unique process produces a medium that is cost-efficient, extremely soundproof, offers high insulation values, requires very low maintenance, won’t burn, non-toxic, highly resistant to insects and mold, and resists damage from hurricane forces and earth tremors. It’s a more affordable, energy-efficient “green” construction material that can be utilized for building residential housing and commercial structures.

Affordable homes are increasingly becoming more difficult to purchase in the U.S. with the median price of a new home consistently rising while wages stay stagnant in many areas and mortgage rates rise. The average price of new homes sold in the U.S. in 2017 was nearly $385,000, according to Statista. The homeownership rate in the U.S. has been in decline since 2004, the report states, and now amounts to a little more than 64 percent of Americans.

Auscrete’s lightweight concrete product is described as an aerated concrete material following infusion of a specially designed foaming agent during manufacture. This technology enables the product to have millions of minuscule air bubble “aggregates” introduced and evenly distributed throughout the cast sections, which creates a unique, lightweight product without compromising strength or structural integrity. Each hybrid panel also incorporates a distinctive XPS insulation amalgamation that guarantees greater comfort in a wide range of climatic conditions and a reduction in heating and cooling costs. The final product is a light and strong concrete panel with an extremely high insulation value, as well as excellent fire resistance and sound-proofing qualities.

Auscrete’s product also offers a high strength-to-weight ratio, allowing architects and engineers to develop new design and construction concepts that take advantage of the product’s reduced weight, which is nearly half that of normal concrete. Each panel can be cast in large sections, a common size being 16-feet by 8-feet, for easier transportation and faster construction on site. Savings are enhanced, not only by the energy efficiency of each panel, but through the use of mass production techniques. Auscrete estimates the company can produce a ready-to-move-in turnkey house for around $100 per square foot, which is significantly less than the 2017 median list price of $148 per square foot in the U.S., according to a report by Zillow.

Auscrete is constructing its flagship, 10-acre facility in Goldendale, Washington, on initially 5 acres the company recently purchased with the option to purchase another 5 adjacent acres. This new campus will ultimately comprise of 6 buildings, including 3 production buildings of 25,000 sq. ft. with each production buildings’ capacity of 100 homes annually, giving this flagship facility the ability to produce 300 homes or equivalent commercial structures per year.

During this construction phase, Auscrete has leased a commercial building in Goldendale. The facility will be used as a temporary headquarters and will also serve as a refurbishing station for production equipment the company has developed and used in its prior production plant. John Sprovieri, CEO and founder of Auscrete Corporation, is at the helm of the company with Mike Young serving as vice president of internal operations and Otto Paulette controlling the in-house mechanical services.

Auscrete’s Investor Relations Director, Lee Odom said, “The company’s construction process has already attracted interest from many developers, contractors and builders, some with large tracts of land looking to make available, significant numbers of Affordable Homes throughout the Country. Additionally, there have been significant commercial projects offered including 300 room destination hotel resorts, correctional facilities, a shopping complex, and a court house along with a flood of inquiries from people who are looking for more affordable building options”.

“This could really launch the commercial aspect for?ASCK, apart from residential home production which so many investors are not yet aware of,” Odom said. “A strong combination of both will lead?ASCK?to better performance through all business cycles, thus continuing to enhance the shareholder values, which is always the ultimate goal of Auscrete Corporation.”

Auscrete Corp. (ASCK), closed the day's trading session at $0.029, off by 3.33%, on 20,501 volume with 3 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 23,669 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.009/$32.90.
