Manganese X Subsidiary and JV Partner PureBiotic Air Inc. Provide Virginia State University Testing Update on Biofilm Deconstruction of Pathogens Including COVID-19

·4 min read

Montreal, Quebec--(Newsfile Corp. - May 18, 2021) - Manganese X Energy Corp. (TSXV: MN) (FSE: 9SC2) (OTCQB: MNXXF) ("Manganese X", "MN" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Disruptive Battery Corp. ("DBC"), in conjunction with its US JV Partner, PureBiotic AIR, Inc. ("PureBiotic"), has received additional positive preliminary results from its ongoing research study with Virginia State University (VSU). Early results indicate that PureBiotic AIR Mist Solutions can potentially be effective in causing the deconstruction of biofilm, calculated by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to be responsible for 80% of all infections, thereby reducing the risk of infection from pathogenic bacteria and viruses, including SARS-CoV-2 virus, cause of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Manganese X Energy Corp. CEO Martin Kepman said, "There were some delays caused by the COVID-19 restrictions in accessing VSU testing facilities, as well as staff availability. We have now been notified that testing will resume on a regular basis with their staff as long as there are no additional COVID-19 interruptions."

The initial VSU testing also included the successful production of the biofilm growth required to advance its research and testing of DBC's PureBiotic AIR HVAC Delivery System for the mitigation of infection risks, including COVID-19 and other contaminants. Applications of the PureBiotic AIR Mist Solutions are currently being tested on the biofilm grown from specific pathogens selected from the common human environment. The company's ultimate goal is to create a product for FDA certification.

With test results now indicating the possibility that the PureBiotic AIR Mist Solutions can be effective in causing the deconstruction of the biofilm, the VSU research team will continue its study to document the reduction in infection risk. This component of the research will cover a wide range of infection types, addressing some of the current concerns due to the COVID pandemic and its variants, as well as that of the extensive range of Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI's).

Background Information on PureBiotic AIR Mist Solutions

This research studies the possibility of utilizing an easy and safe removal of biofilm at the microscopic level by testing many other types of infections which may currently be eclipsed by COVID. These infections cause millions of hospitalizations and tens of thousands of deaths as well as costing hundreds of billions of dollars annually around the world. Utilizing the PureBiotic AIR Mist Solutions both on surfaces and in the air, could potentially help reduce the viability of COVID-19 transmission and of other infections by deconstructing the microscopic biofilm that is present on all surfaces.

A number of previous studies from universities and hospitals have documented the significant ability of PureBiotic AIR Mist Solutions to control a very wide range of pathogens, as well as the ability to safely deconstruct Biofilm. Biofilm, which is found on almost every possible surface, as well as on and in all life forms, is the defensive environment grown as protective housing by microorganisms.

One of the other significant advantages PureBiotic AIR Mist Solutions have over chemical solutions in cleaners and disinfectants, is that it is basically organically suspended in purified water. The mist has been proven time and again to be totally safe and beneficial to all life forms (and has been certified by a number of Organic Organizations as approved for use on Certified-Organic animals). Applications of PureBiotic AIR Mist Solutions should provide ongoing continuous protection long after the initial application. The PureBiotic AIR Mist Solution also is extremely environmentally friendly and its formulation has met all the major certifications for being Green Seal Certified, as well as NFS and other certifications.

Another important additional benefit of PureBiotic AIR Mist Solutions, is that it is not like other disinfectants which are basically poisons with toxic ingredients that normally stop working as soon as they are dry. This leaves untold billions of dead microscopic life forms impossible to remove from the cleaned surfaces and these become a continuous "Free Lunch" for the first opportunistic organism (like the extremely ubiquitous staphylococcus) that lands on that "cleaned" surface. But, even far more important, is that chemical disinfectants kill everything, including the protective good bacteria that are needed, so "all the competition is gone" resulting in Staph Colonies that can happily have huge growth spikes. However, PureBiotic Air Mist Solutions keep working after drying for days after each application which potentially protects and removes contaminants 24/7.

The company is not making any express or implied claim that it has developed a COVID-19 air management solution at this time.
