Vivione Biosciences Inc. launches PC Bio energy solution at Unconventional Resources & Technologies (URTeC) 2014 conference

Vivione Biosciences Inc. (“Vivione”) (TSXV:VBI), through its wholly owned subsidiary, Vivione Biosciences, LLC, launched its Petro Chemical Bio-Diagnostics (“PC Bio”) bacterial identification and enumeration solution this past week at the Unconventional Resources & Technologies (URTeC) 2014 conference held in Denver, Colorado.

PC Bio is a strategic alliance between Vivione and the Institute for Environmental Health, Inc. (“IEH”) that offers a bio-diagnostics solution that quickly identifies and quantifies bacterial contamination levels in multiple oil & gas environments. It currently offers the oil & gas industry three critical solutions: 1) a characterization test which allows companies to identify and enumerate each bacteria species from sample wells, fields and/or other locations; 2) a bio-treatment efficacy test which allows companies to determine the effectiveness of a given treatment of a sample by measuring changes of bacterial activity pre- and post-treatment, and 3) periodic monitoring of changes in bacterial activity of a given environment so that remedial actions can be taken in a timely manner with greater precision. These services can be performed individually or as part of an ongoing “wellness” plan for a field or individual well.

“Given our experience setting new standards for rapid identification of bacteria and pathogens in food safety and clinical applications, we knew that we could provide the oil & gas industry with a rapid solution that positively impacts the decision making process, usually extending equipment life, reducing downtime and yielding higher well production” said Vivione’s Chief Executive Officer, Kevin Kuykendall. “We were very pleased with the industry’s response at the show to our new offering. Our booth was very busy and the demonstrations held in our hospitality suite were well attended, leading to more than a dozen requests for specific sample testing as well as multiple requests for follow-up meetings.”

What does it look like when you have access to cloud infrastructure and platform under the same roof? Let’s talk about the different layers of Technology as a Service: who cares, what runs where, and how does it all fit together. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Lead Technology Evangelist at SoftLayer, an IBM company, spoke about the picture being painted by IBM Cloud and how the tools being crafted can help fill the gaps in your IT infrastructure.
Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...
One of biggest questions about Big Data is “How do we harness all that information for business use quickly and effectively?” Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or spatial technology is about more than making maps, but adding critical context and meaning to data of all types, coming from all different channels – even sensors. In his session at @ThingsExpo, William (Bill) Meehan, director of utility solutions for Esri, will take a closer look at the current state of spatial technology and ar...
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable.

The result reduces complexity, significantly lowers cost, and provides IT organizations with improved efficienc...
