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.”
