LA JOLLA, Calif., April 05, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MyDx, Inc. (OTCQB:MYDX), producer of its patented MyDx™ (My Diagnostic) product line, the first battery operated, handheld, chemical analyzer for consumers, today announced it has signed a major distribution deal with Nanolux Technology, Inc. (“Nanolux”) valued at over $4 million.
Petaluma, California-based Nanolux produces one of the world’s leading brands of horticultural lighting ballasts. With over 1,000 retail shops in its distribution network, it has an extensive footprint throughout the US indoor agriculture and hydroponic marketplace concentrated in states with cannabis sales legalized in some form -- especially California as the US’s largest legal cannabis market (www.nanoluxtech.com).
Under the terms of the Agreement, Nanolux has already placed an initial purchase order for the first 100 units being used for training and demonstration purposes. Nanolux will have exclusive distribution rights within the US retail hydroponic market and anticipates first-year sales of at least 10,000 units.
MyDx will provide comprehensive marketing support, collateral materials, training, customer and warranty service. The Agreement is for one year, with automatic renewals subject to mutually satisfactory sales and service performance.
The Company’s MyDx portable analyzer and CannaDxTM sensor kit includes its sophisticated, CannaDx smart phone app. It is the first-of-its-kind portable chemical analyzer, allowing the consumer to affordably identify the chemical composition of cannabis at the point of care. The CannaDx sensor will deliver a Total Canna Profile™ (TCP) that goes beyond THC to encompass 20 or more key cannabinoids and terpenes. These compounds can be measured and their combination analyzed to correlate to a user’s feeling and ailment relief (www.cdxlife.com/cdxshop).
MyDx targets three market segments to reach the three primary classes of beneficiaries for its CannaDx kits: (1) Consumers, through e-commerce affiliates and direct online sales; (2) Growers, through distribution to retail sellers of commercial grower equipment; and (3) Legal cannabis dispensaries. The Nanolux Distribution Agreement provides immediate, deep market penetration throughout the US legal grower market.
Commenting on the Agreement, Keith Harrington, Nanolux President, said, “Nanolux is an innovator, first to market with world class horticultural ballasts and related technology. Distributing a breakthrough technology to growers who want a proven, inexpensive method to test their final product and adjust growing conditions in their commercial grows is well aligned with our business model and philosophy.
“We’re excited to offer CannaDx, which affordably puts the power of chemical science into the hands of growers. Early pilot testing sales completed last month indicate this will be a strong seller through the retail shops in our distribution system.”
Daniel R. Yazbeck, MyDx Chairman and CEO, said, “Having just launched a revolutionary new, consumer technology just a few months ago, this Agreement represents a major success in our commercialization strategy by penetrating the grower market nationwide. It will serve to build brand awareness and value on the ground, while the cash flow funds completion and commercialization of the next generation MyDx Analyzer sensors in our development pipeline.
“Nanolux is a terrific company with strong insight into one of our three primary target markets, and we’re delighted to be in business with them and look forward to a long and productive relationship,” concluded Mr. Yazbeck.
