VANCOUVER, British Columbia, October 6, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Victory Square Health Inc. (“VS Health” or the “Company“) – a portfolio company of Victory Square Technologies Inc. (“Victory Square”) (CSE:VST) (OTC:VSQTF) (FWB:6F6) is pleased to update stakeholders on the Company’s progress in Canada.
Victory Square Health has taken the critical extra steps to improve the accuracy and specificity results for its Safetest Covid-19 Rapid Test, so its clinical performance meets Health Canada’s standards. Based on these improved results, the Company has now formally submitted its Safetest Covid-19 Rapid tests to Health Canada for formal review and approval.
Victory Square Health previously announced in September, 2020 that it had engaged with a Government-recognized manufacturer, and also acquired its own additional lab and manufacturing facility to increase monthly production of its Covid-19 Safetest Rapid Tests. The Company is confident that it will deliver upon orders in a timely manner and without delay in Canada following Health Canada approvals.
Victory Square Health has combined its Safetest Covid-19 Test with a turn-key testing-as-a-service suite of products and services including providing companies with certified on-site testing teams, medical professionals, lab analysis, and a digital health passport with encrypted and secure data of testing date, time, results. Victory Square Health can provide Covid-19 testing-as-a-service to large and small scale companies, government organizations, the public as well as for border agencies, airports, and public entertainment spaces. This turn-key testing-as-a-service is in addition to its proprietary Safetest Covid-19™ Test. This service will alleviate the pressure that companies and Government agencies would face having to deal with the logistics of initiating testing on their own.
“Victory Square Health is ready to assist large and small companies, organizations, government, and public agencies through our Covid-19 Safetest turn-key testing-as-a-service,” said Shafin Diamond Tejani, CEO of Victory Square. “As a proud Canadian Company, our commitment to our fellow Canadians is paramount during this wave and future waves of this pandemic.”
Victory Square recently announced that it had entered into a distribution and partnership agreement in Canada with The Canadian Police Association and TM Safety Supplies following Health Canada approvals. These sales and distribution announcements are the first in Canada of which the Company expects to be many in the coming weeks and months. The Canadian Police Association and its 60,000 plus members work day and night in contact with countless people. Their safety and knowledge from our Safetest Covid-19 Test is a priority. TM Safety Supplies provides a complete catalogue of personal protective equipment, sanitization items, gowns, critical supplies, and is now adding the <15 minute Safetest Covid-19 Rapid Test to its product arsenal.
VS Health was founded in 2016 to accelerate the development of personalized medicine and technology solutions including diagnostic tests to support patient’s care and improve health outcomes. Its first product, the Leishmaniasis Rapid Test, was developed in partnership with the UFMG, Federal University of Minas Gerais.
