FendX and McMaster Collaborate on NSERC Alliance Grant Application for Pathogen-Repelling Spray Nanotechnology Scale-up Development

Oakville, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – March 15, 2024) – FendX Technologies Inc. (CSE: FNDX) (OTCQB: FDXTF) (FSE: E8D) (the “Company” or “FendX”), a nanotechnology company developing surface protection coatings to reduce the spread of pathogens, is pleased to announce that McMaster University (“McMaster”) has submitted an application for a Natural Sciences and Engineering Council (“NSERC”) Alliance grant with FendX as the industry sponsor.

FendX, in collaboration with McMaster, has been advancing development of the spray formulation which it licensed from McMaster as announced on May 17, 2023. If awarded, this NSERC Alliance grant will contribute to funding the advancement of the spray nanotechnology, including scale-up and testing, as FendX continues to pursue the development of a commercial spray product to protect high-touch surfaces from contamination and curb the spread of pathogens.

Dr. Carolyn Myers, CEO of FendX states “We are pleased with our successful collaboration with McMaster and as we jointly advance our development programs, we support sponsoring grants that can contribute to funding for the advancement of our products under development.” Dr. Myers continues “If granted, this would mark the second NSERC Alliance grant received by McMaster with FendX as the industry sponsor. The initial grant, awarded in May 2022, supports the development and scale-up of our innovative product REPELWRAP™ film.”
