"We were very pleased to receive an order of 5 BioCloud units and we are excited to announce that we will be supporting Canada's great athletes on the world stage," says Paul Ghezzi, CEO of Kontrol.

BioCloud is a real-time air analyzer designed to detect airborne pathogens. It has been designed to operate as a safe space technology by promoting air circulation, monitoring the air quality and sampling continuously for pathogens like viruses, bacteria and fungi.

These safe space technology units will be used at the Olympic Games within Team Canada's residential areas including the Athletes' Village.

"Protecting the health and safety of Team Canada, which has always been a top priority, needs innovative solutions in our current global context," says Dr. Mike Wilkinson, Team Canada's Chief Medical Officer. "The addition of Kontrol BioCloud really complements the stringent protocols put in place by the COC, International Olympic Committee and Tokyo 2020 Organizing Committee to protect the health and safety of our team. This technology provides another layer of protection with air quality monitoring so that our athletes can focus on their pursuit of the podium."

"In addition to the purchase order, Kontrol will be donating a number of BioCloud units to provide our athletes with safer spaces," continues Ghezzi.

Kontrol BioCloud is an air quality technology and not a medical device. The Company is not making any express or implied claims that its product has the ability to eliminate, cure or contain the COVID-19 (or SARS-2 Coronavirus).
