TEMPE, AZ--(Marketwired - Mar 4, 2014) - Tranzbyte Corporation (OTC Pink: ERBB) (http://www.otcmarkets.com/stock/ERBB/quote) announced today that after several successful tests in California, the Altitude Organix division (which includes the ZaZZZ machine) has begun an official test with Bloom Dispensaries (http://www.bloomdispensary.com). The proprietary technology has been in use in a variety of applications for over four years including Canadian grows and organic farms in both countries. The technology dramatic increases the parts per million of oxygen in water and has several benefits including reductions in grow time and increases in yield.
"Results of the early testing on marijuana grows have been spectacular and have borne out our claims," states Dr. Mayur Dev, the company representative assisting in setting up the tests. "We are excited to more formally demonstrate the positive impact of our technology to an industry leader like Tranzbyte." A second, larger controlled test began on March 2 in California. Based on the results of preliminary tests, Tranzbyte executed a Letter of Intent on February 12, 2014, to license this patent-pending technology for distribution throughout the marijuana growing industry in the US. We are in the process of negotiating a formal Licensing Agreement with the owners of the technology pending the results of the tests which began in Phoenix and California last weekend.
"Basically we re-create atmospheric conditions from prehistoric times. Think: the Jurassic era. Think of accomplishing the mythological 'fifth grow.' This serves to increase product availability and adds profit straight to the bottom line for the grower," says Stephen Shearin, Tranzbyte's chief operating officer. "An apparent side benefit is that several common pests associated with grow operations don't seem to favor the higher O2 environment. It was an unintended consequence of the process, but it could be as big a feature as achieving radically increased growth. Most states are 'seed to sale' -- meaning every group we talk to about ZaZZZ is also a candidate for the AO water," Shearin concludes.
"Bloom Dispensary's first priority is always how to best serve the needs of our ever-growing patient population. We are regularly approached by people promising grand opportunities -- few if any, pan out. After seeing the results of the informal California test and speaking with the engineers, we are excited to test the AO watering apparatus. Bloom Dispensary currently serves over 10,000 of Arizona's medical marijuana patients with their 3 retail locations. Anything that will allow us to do that more safely or effectively is always worth exploring," says Lezli Engelking, Executive Director Bloom Dispensary, Phoenix. Please direct all queries to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not call the retail locations for information regarding the AO water test referenced in this press release.
