I just had a brief conversation with Bret. Asked him for some insight into why we don't know the name of the company doing the testing (Cholera, etc.). He said that these standard testing agreements signed with these entities typically don't allow the parties to reveal their name.
Just sharing what I found out. Sounds like this is typical operation within the industry.
The web site update states "NanoLogix has engaged the services of a major biodefense and biomedical research corporation to evaluate the NanoLogix BNF technology for detection and identification of six types of bacteria." IMHO, Batelle could be that "major corporation". But even if it is someone else, this is good stuff.
Trace, Hope you had a good thanksgiving. I agree that it is probably Battelle in my opinion. They have used "major biodefense and biomedical" in the past to desribe Battelle. The key word for me is biodefense since that is relatively uncommon. There are many biomedical corporations. It would, however, be intersting if it was another company. I guess in due time we will find out.
I’m always guilty of picking words apart in a PR, and the answer to this makes little difference to anything, but. Do you think they would have used the phrase “a major biodefense and biomedical research corporation” if referring to Battelle?
It seems the word “corporation” technically does not apply to Battelle. It could be an easy and honest mistake to make,
