Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada – February 10, 2021 – Core One Labs Inc. (CSE: COOL), (OTC: CLABF), (Frankfurt: LD62, WKN: A2P8K3) (the “Company” or “Core One Labs”) a biotechnology research and development life sciences enterprise focused on advancing psychedelic medicines to market, is pleased to announce preparations for filing a patent application encompassing its proprietary biosynthetic psilocybin production system.
With the completion of its initial studies, Core One’s subsidiary has assembled the necessary data from its research and development program on biosynthetic psilocybin production systems in order to commence the process of preparing and filing its first patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
The initial filing is the first in a series of upcoming patent filings aimed at protecting valuable intellectual property that underpins the proprietary fermentative production process for active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) grade psilocybin.
The Company’s research team is continuing to develop new strategies to optimize expression of its proprietary DNA expression system that encodes the enzymes responsible for native psilocybin production in psychedelic mushrooms. Core One Labs intends to expand its patent portfolio with each milestone achievement as it works toward maximizing the output of psilocybin from its process development.
Joel Shacker, CEO of Core One Labs states, “We are proceeding towards the filing of several patent applications that will help safeguard our development efforts and protect the inherent value generation our work represents. The science that supports our extended research into biosynthesized psilocybin introduces multiple scenarios for the creation of different strains and potencies. These formulations hold promise for the manufacture of formulations offering enhanced and targeted efficacy. Our advanced production methods are designed to cut costs and production timelines which, combined with our scientific advancements, represent fundamental drivers propelling the company towards near term goals and opportunities. Protecting our valued intellectual property is critical to our strategy for success, and our patent efforts are of significant importance to the growth of the Company and the concurrent creation of shareholder value.”
