Zenosense, Inc. Reports Manufacturing of Pre-Commercial Lung Cancer Detection Device

VALENCIA, SPAIN--(Marketwired - Nov 4, 2014) - Zenosense, Inc. (OTCQB: ZENO) ("Zenosense," the "Company"), a healthcare technology company primarily focused on developing and marketing devices to detect the MRSA "Super-Bug" and to detect signs of lung cancer in exhaled breath, is pleased to announce the manufacturing of a pre-commercial prototype device to be evaluated for the detection of lung cancer in exhaled breath ("Device").

Prototyping manufacture is well advanced. The work has been undertaken by the Company's contracted development partner Zenon Biosystem ("Zenon"), which is part of the Sgenia group. In line with the protocol design for an anticipated lung cancer detection trial to be held in a clinical setting, two pre-commercial Devices are currently being manufactured of the same design to ensure reproducibility of results. The completed Devices are expected to be ready during the second half of the current month.

The Device incorporates components designed to filter out Volatile Organic Compounds ("VOCs") not of interest in order to optimize the detection of target VOC biomarkers found in exhaled breath and associated with the incidence of lung cancer.

These components and their elements include molecular sieves incorporated in complementary layered and mixed sensor structures to screen incoming VOCs, and nanometric sensing mesh to maximize the detective area. During this optimization process Zenon has developed new metal oxide materials and combinations of metal oxides that cannot be found in commercially available sensors. A complementary quartz crystal sensor employing a gas sorbent substrate has also been designed, along with a micro gas chromatography chip, for pre-detection screening. All components are of a relatively low cost consistent with the Company's intent to create cost effective products.

The Company looks forward to the testing of the Devices in the planned lung cancer detection trial. Work is ongoing by Zenon to establish the necessary collaborations to carry out the trial. The Company believes that a cost-effective lung cancer detector analyzing exhaled breath proven as meeting or exceeding the accuracy of low dose Computed Tomography (CT) scanning will have wide appeal and be in significant demand.

About Zenosense, Inc.

Zenosense, Inc. is a detection device development company based in Valencia, Spain. Its mission is to develop effective medical devices targeting the early detection of both deadly bacteria and certain cancers in the exhaled breath of patients and market and sell these products to hospitals and primary healthcare facilities. Two devices are currently under development; a device intended to detect the Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus "Super-Bug" (MRSA); and a device intended to detect Lung Cancer. Using a common Electronic Nose technology platform, the devices analyze Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) which are present in the exhaled breath of patients, scanning for certain biomarkers which can indicate the presence of infection/illness.
