Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – March 24, 2021) – Therma Bright Inc. (TSXV: THRM) (“Therma” or the “Company”), developer of the AcuVidTM COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Saliva Test and other progressive diagnostic and medical device technologies, announces that it has entered into business agreement with Ridge Global, the consultancy founded by Governor Tom Ridge, the first U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security. The agreement focuses on supporting the Company’s reach across the United States and Global marketplace business community along with extending policy advisory services in the U.S.
“We’re excited to add Ridge Global to our growing advisory team,” expressed Rob Fia, CEO of Therma Bright. “Governor Ridge will serve as a Senior Advisor and support his team in corporate strategy and business development on behalf of Therma Bright.”
Therma Bright believes its AcuVidTM COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Saliva Test ideally meets the new March 16 FDA Guidance for test developers seeking emergency use authorization (EUA) of certain tests for screening with serial testing. Serial testing involves testing the same individual multiple times within a few days, and can increase chances of detecting asymptomatic infection that might not always show up with a single test. CDC recommends serial testing at least once per week, along with other mitigation measures, such as masking and social distancing, to reduce disease transmission. In addition, with the recent American Rescue Bill passed by President Biden, there are opportunities to assist the U.S. and its citizens detect, contain and mitigate COVID-19 and its growing variants with Therma Bright’s, “Made in the USA”, AcuVidTM COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Saliva Test once approved under the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the FDA.
Therma Bright is not making any express or implied claims that its test product has the ability to eliminate or cure COVID-19 or the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
