TORONTO, July 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Datametrex AI Limited (the "Company" or "Datametrex") (TSXV: DM, FSE: D4G, OTC: DTMXF) is pleased to announce that it has received a purchase order (the “PO”) for COVID-19 test kits and services from Canadian based mining company TMAC Resources Inc. (the "Purchaser") with operations in Nunavut, Canada. The initial pilot PO is approximately $200,000.
The Company has secured all requested test kits, swabs, tubes, PPE and the lab time. All of the items will be delivered directly to the mining company at their muster site in Edmonton, Alberta.. Testing services are conducted by Transpharm Canada Inc. (“TCI”). The Company does not anticipate any costs associated with the sale of these kits.
"Datametrex is pleased in assisting TMAC with implementing testing for response to COVID-19, and keeping its employees, the community in Nunavut safe." says Marshall Gunter, CEO of the Company. "The thinking is simple; an individual who tests positive before arriving in Nunavut can be isolated until they recover, effectively negating the rate of transmission in the community."
Under the terms of the PO, Datametrex will deliver to the purchaser an initial 2,000 units of the Health Canada authorized COVID-19 qPCR Detection Kits manufactured by 1drop Inc., and 3 mL Univesal Transport Medium (UTM®) Sterile Swabs with 16x100mm Skirted Tubes. The testing is being conducted by Dr. Alexander MacGregor and his team from Transpharm Canada Inc. (“TCI”) at the TMAC’s muster point.
TMAC stated that they are focused on ensuring the health, safety and well-being of local communities, all employees, contractors, and visitors, including;
providing safety training and education to ensure a capable and resilient work force;
promoting healthy work practices, work organization and a culture of health and wellbeing in the workplace and in local and Inuit communities;
participating in emergency response training to protect the health and safety of the work force, visitors and local and Inuit communities; and
maintaining occupational health programs and emergency preparedness.
