Synodon, Inc. (SYD.V)
Today we are highlighting Synodon, Inc. (SYD.V), here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Founded in 2000, Synodon, Inc. is a remote sensing technology company whose shares trade on the TSX Venture Exchange. The Company developed a leak detection system to detect ground-level gas concentrations. They also focus on the provision of an assortment of datasets. This includes aerial imagery, thermal and terrain mapping, and vegetation and ground type to energy companies. Synodon has their headquarters in Edmonton, Alberta.
Synodon developed the Simultaneous-View Correlation Radiometry (SVCR) technology. They implemented it in the realSens™ gas detection system. SVCR is a variant of the Gas-Filter Correlation Radiometry (GFCR) technique. GFCR is a remote sensing technique. It is used to measure the amount of a gas of interest in the section of an atmosphere located within the field of view of an instrument that employs this technique. It has been used since the 1960's in airborne and space-borne devices - most notably for the MOPITT instrument on-board NASA's Terra polar orbiting satellite.
MOPITT is a radiometer that uses GFCR to measure carbon monoxide (CO) and methane (CH4) in the lower atmosphere. Its main goal is to monitor pollution and its effects in the troposphere. Synodon acquired the rights to expand the technology MOPITT validated in Space to commercial devices and services. The realSens&trade project is Synodon's first undertaking in this respect. It aims primarily at creating an industry standard for the remote sensing of hydrocarbon leaks and emissions.
The realSens™ gas detection system is used for the remote measurement of ground-level gas concentrations from an aircraft flying up to 300 meters in altitude. This includes hydrocarbon emissions, pollution monitoring, industrial emission inventory, hazardous gas monitoring during emergencies, greenhouse gas emission inventory, illegal drug manufacturing detection, chemical weapon monitoring, and other military and security-based applications.
In late April, Synodon announced that their realSens™ technology completed a successful third-party organized blind test. Over the course of the technology development and especially in the last three years, Synodon completed a large number of laboratory and field tests with their realSens™ system. These tests demonstrated the efficacy of the technology at detecting natural gas leaks as low as 100 scfhr (standard cubic feet per hour) and under diverse environmental conditions.
This month, Synodon announced that TECTERRA, Inc. committed an investment of up to $220,000 for the next generation development of the realSens™ technology. The funded improvements to the realSens™ technology are closely based on the recently issued United States patent which Synodon announced on February 21, 2012. They revolve around developing new data analysis methods that use surface reflectivity profiles to improve the accuracy of GFCR measurements. By using this method in their current realSens™ GFCR implementation, Synodon estimates that they can improve the gas detection sensitivity by a factor of up to 10 times.
In addition, this month Synodon announced that in recent flight tests, their realSens™ technology successfully detected simulated ground level liquid hydrocarbon leaks while undergoing deployment at 300 meters altitude in a helicopter flying at 120 km/hr. The Company will now begin marketing this new and innovative leak detection service to liquid hydrocarbon pipeline companies in parallel with their natural gas pipeline leak detection services.
Synodon, Inc. (SYD.V), closed Monday's session at $0.40, up 14.29%, on 16,889 volume. The 52-week low/high is $0.15/$3.00.
Casey Container Corp. (CSEY)
Daytrader Zack, Buying penny stocks, HotStockChat, and FeedBlitz reported previously on CaCasey Container Corp. (CSEY), and we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Trading on the OTC Bulletin Board, Casey Container Corp. engages in the design and custom manufacture of biodegradable PET, HDPE, and other plastic polymer preforms, bottles, and containers. These products are for use in the bottled water, beverage, and consumer products industries. The Company offers biodegradable plastics packaging solutions using the science of the EcoPure® additive and technology. Founded in 2010, Casey Container is based in Scottsdale, Arizona.
For Preforms, the Company manufactures bulk and custom PET preforms, ready to be blown into bottles at a client's facility. For Plastic Bottles, they manufacture finished PET food-quality bottles. They also manufacture Plastic Containers for household cleaners, shampoos, facial cleansers, lotions, as well as other products. Casey Container includes the best-of-class Eco-Pure® additive in all of their plastics. They do this through a strategic alliance with Bio-Tec Environmental. Casey Container blends innovative biodegradability technology with traditional plastics manufacturing to deliver an environmentally responsible product. PET plastic will be available initially. The Company plans to expand rapidly into other thermoplastics such as HDPE (high-density polyethylene).
EcoPure® is a second-generation additive. When added to a resin type during the manufacturing process, it renders plastics biodegradable. The EcoPure™ technology used to make the Company's plastic packaging solutions biodegradable are useable with polystyrene (PS), polypropylene (PP), polyethyeleneterapthalate (PET), polyethylene (PE), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and most other types of polymer.
The EcoPure™ technology adds nutrients and other organic compounds that weaken the polymer chain. This allows microbial action to colonize in and around the plastic. The bottles, now completely metabolized, turn into inert humus (biomass), biogas (anaerobic), or Co2 (aerobic).
Casey Container bottles have a shelf life of normal plastic. When placed in an aerobic or anaerobic landfill, their bottles biodegrade in 2-10 years. This depends on the amount of biodegradable additive in the bottle, the gram weight of each bottle/container, and the microbial activity of the landfill it is in.
The Company's bottles can mix into the standard PET recycling stream, while bioplastics cannot. They designed their biodegradable plastic packaging solutions to meet strict standards for shelf life, appearance, and longevity. This makes them especially suited for retail product environments. Casey Container is presently seeking funding to build manufacturing facilities in Florida and Arizona.
Last week, following on their April 2, 2012 Letter of Interest press release, Casey Container announced that they received a Business Valuation Report for their biodegradable plastics business. The Report concludes that a reasonable estimate of the Fair Market Value of a 100 percent interest in Casey is $82.8 million, as of December 31, 2011. Based on their current status, Casey management anticipates beginning production in early October 2012.
Casey Container Corp. (CSEY), closed Monday's trading session at $0.17, even with yesterday’s close, on 2,100 volume. The average volume for the last 60 days is 18,786. The 52-week low/high is $0.03/$0.24.

RXi Pharmaceuticals Corp. (RXII)
StreetInsider, Greenbackers, The Momentum Traders Network, PennyInvest, StockRich, BullRally, CoolPennyStocks, StockEgg, HotOTC, PennyStockVille, and MadPennyStocks reported previously on RXi Pharmaceuticals Corp. (RXII), and today we are reporting on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Founded in 2011, RXi Pharmaceuticals Corp. is a biotechnology company that lists on the OTC Bulletin Board. The Company focuses on discovering, developing and commercializing innovative therapies based on their proprietary, next-generation RNAi platform. Therapeutics that use RNA interference, or "RNAi," have great promise because of their ability to 'silence,' or down-regulate, the expression of a specific gene that may be over expressed in a disease condition. RXi Pharmaceuticals has their corporate headquarters in Worcester, Massachusetts.
RXi Pharmaceuticals announced on May 10, 2012 that the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc., also known as FINRA, approved RXi Pharmaceuticals' common stock for trading under the stock symbol "RXII" on the OTC Bulletin Board. RXi Pharmaceuticals stock began trading, May 10, 2012. The listing of RXi Pharmaceuticals' stock completes their spin-off into an independent, publicly-traded company from former parent Galena Biopharma, Inc. (NASDAQ:GALE). The spin-off transaction was previously announced by Galena in September 2011, and, on April 26, 2012, Galena paid a dividend of one share of RXi Pharmaceuticals common stock for each outstanding share of Galena common stock.
RXi Pharmaceuticals is building on the pioneering work of scientific founder and Nobel Laureate Dr. Craig Mello. RXi Pharmaceutical's first RNAi product candidate, RXI-109, which targets CTGF (connective tissue growth factor), is scheduled to begin human clinical trials in anti-scarring this year. RXI-109 is a self-delivering RNAi compound (sd-rxRNA) for the reduction of dermal scarring in planned surgeries. It reduces the expression of connective tissue growth factor, a critical regulator of several biological pathways involved in fibrosis, including scar formation in the skin. The design of RXi's sd-rxRNA compounds are for therapeutic use and have drug-like properties, such as high potency, target specificity, serum stability, reduced immune response activation, and efficient cellular uptake.
RNAi is a naturally occurring phenomenon where short double-stranded RNA molecules interfere with the expression of targeted genes. RNAi technology takes advantage of this phenomenon and potentially allows the Company to interfere effectively with particular genes within living cells by designing RNA-derived molecules targeting those genes. RNAi is regarded as a significant advancement in the scientific community. This is evidenced by the journal Science's selection of RNAi as the "Breakthrough of the Year" in 2002 and by the awarding of the 2006 Nobel Prize in Medicine to the co-discoverers of RNAi, including Dr. Craig Mello, a founder of Galena.
This month, RXi Pharmaceuticals announced that Geert Cauwenbergh, Dr. Med. Sc. has been appointed as the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer. Dr. Cauwenbergh brings more than 30 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry, including a successful record of accomplishment developing and commercializing dermatological drugs.

TransBioTec, Inc. (IMLE)
NanoCap Gems and OTCPicks reported previously on Colombia Energy Resources, Inc. (IMLE), and we are highlighting the Company today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
TransBioTec has developed and patented a non-invasive alcohol sensing system 'SOBR' which works as a type of ignition interlock that functions through transdermal, biometric feedback. The technology works by sensing ethanol alcohol via sweat secretion from the hands. The alcohol sensing system offers a unique solution to the national drunk driving epidemic.
TransBioTec, with three locations, was legally formed as a California "C" corporation on December 31, 2003. TransBioTec's shares trade on the OTC Bulletin Board. The Company has their headquarters in Seal Beach, California.
SOBR technology consists of two parts: the blood alcohol detection technology and the ignition interlock device connected through a microprocessor. SOBR is the first product to market that is entirely neither intrusive nor invasive keeping the vehicles crucial aesthetic appeal to the general population while having the ability to be fitted to any vehicle.
As either a retrofitted or a factory built-in device, the steering wheel of any vehicle becomes the sensor platform. When a driver grasps the steering wheel, the ultra-efficient sensor detects the vapors and determines the precise contents of those vapors, in terms of alcohol level. This information is instantly translated into an engine "start" or "no-start" state.
An unsafe measurement will deny the driver the ability to start the engine of the vehicle. If the driver becomes intoxicated while driving, the car horn and the emergency flashers will go off. If the system is tampered with while parked, the car will not start. If tampered with while driving, the alarms will activate. The driver will not be able to put the vehicle in harm's way.
Last Friday, TransBioTec announced the appointment of Mr. Scott Painter to the position of Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Painter is an experienced Chief Executive with expertise in growing businesses, venture finance, management team development, strategic partnering, as well as mergers and acquisitions. The Board of Directors officially appointed Mr. Painter on May 1, 2012 with the execution of a resolution.

Quantum International Corp. (QUAN)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Quantum International Corp. (QUAN). Today, Quantum International Corp. closed trading at $2.25, on 17,225 volume with 33 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 15,885, and its 52-week low/high is $1.75/$16.50.
Quantum International Corp. announced another step towards their goal of bringing robotic innovation to bear on improving quality of life for people everywhere today, citing last week’s WSJ report on the new collaborative effort (involving Brown, the Department of Veterans Affairs, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School and the German Aerospace Center) that allowed two paralyzed patients to use just their minds to direct a robotic arm, and emphasized how the company is helping to close the loop between breakthrough and commercialization.
Quantum International Corp. (QUAN) is an emerging robotics innovation company that's setting the stage for the next generation of automation technology. The company is targeting leading-edge developers of advanced robotics technologies for acquisition or partnership, with the goal of developing and marketing these technologies to meet fast rising global demand. In particular, the company is exploring new innovations in medical robotics, adding one exploding market on top of another.
With the rapid advancement of sophisticated sensory and control electronics, the promise of economic robotic applications is finally becoming a reality. Although industrial robots have been around for a long time, smaller, lighter, and less expensive versions are finally beginning to play a serious role in the marketplace. It's much like the development of the computer, from a room-size electrical monster, costing millions, to a desktop, laptop, and now handheld electronic wizard that almost anyone can afford.
The worldwide demand for robots is growing rapidly, seen as a now affordable source of controlled energy. The global market for robots is currently estimated at $3.2 billion, with experts projecting the industry to approach $70 billion by 2025. In addition industrial applications, robots are now a crucial part of everyday life for an increasing number of individuals in their home. Personal assistance robots are helping the elderly, paralyzed, and chronically ill lead more independent lives, presenting a major breakthrough in home care with countless benefits.
Add to that the natural growth of the massive health care industry, and medical technology, and it's easy to see why, according to ABI Research, the medical robots industry is expected to reach $1.3 billion by 2016. As an example, various forms of robotic technology are already being used in hospital operating rooms to make difficult or impossible operative procedures now doable. But that same technology can be applied to many other industries, such as consumer electronics, agriculture, wind and solar, and manufacturing. Disclaimer

International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO). Today, International Stem Cell Corp. closed trading at $0.3550, up 1.43%, on 256,292 volume with 50 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 177,267, and its 52-week low/high is $0.3412/$1.15.
International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO) specializes in the therapeutic applications of human parthenogenetic stem cells (hpSCs) and the development and commercialization of cell-based research and cosmetic products. The company was first to perfect the natural phenomenon of parthenogenesis, which utilizes unfertilized human eggs to create hpSCs. These stem cells, created in a particular form called HLA homozygous, can be immune-matched to millions of people regardless of sex or racial background, with minimal expectation of immune rejection after transplantation.
hpSCs are as pluripotent as embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and have significant therapeutic potential but their creation does not involve the destruction of a viable human embryo – thus sidestepping the controversy and ethical dilemmas associated with the use of human embryonic stem cells. Different from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSs), hpSCs do not involve manipulation of gene expression back to a less differentiated stage – a practice that may become a safety or regulatory obstacle in clinical applications.
A relatively small number of hpSC lines can offer the potential of producing the first true stem cell bank, UniStemCell, which ISCO intends to create as a means of serving populations across the globe. The company's scientists are currently focused on using hpSC to treat severe diseases of the eye, nervous system, and liver, for which cell therapy has been clinically proven but is limited due to the unavailability of safe human cells.
In addition to its therapeutic focus, ISCO also provides two revenue streams. Firstly through its subsidiary Lifeline Cell Technology, specialized cells and growth media for biological research around the world, and secondly its subsidiary Lifeline Skin Care, the company manufactures and sells anti-aging skincare products utilizing an extract from the hpSC and by leveraging the latest discoveries in the fields of stem cell biology, nanotechnology, and skin cream formulation technology.

Quantum International is dedicated to changing that. The emerging robotics company is exploring new opportunities to shorten the amount of time it takes for some of the world’s most astounding robotics advances to make it to market.
Last week, The Wall Street Journal detailed a new collaboration between researchers at Brown, the Department of Veterans Affairs, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and the German Aerospace Center that allowed two paralyzed patients to use their thoughts to direct a robotic arm to grasp objects. This incredible advance in the pursuit of restoring some function to people with paralyzed limbs remains years from practical use for people with paralysis or limb loss.
Quantum International aims to help cut the development time between a laboratory breakthrough, like the one profiled in the Journal, to product commercialization. The executive leadership at QUAN has the experience necessary to advance ideas and patents conceived in university labs into new, independent enterprises.
“The technology is already here—we’ve just got to get it to the marketplace,” stated QUAN CEO Robert Federowicz. “We’re targeting early-stage innovators and research groups with new innovations ready for commercialization and pursuing joint ventures and other deals that would allow us to fund or secure financing for products that could change the face of medicine in the 21st Century.”
“This way, Quantum International can deliver powerful robotics innovations to a hungry marketplace while delivering value to our shareholders,” he added.
QUAN plans to announce its initial business targets in the exciting robotics space soon. For more information on Quantum International’s robotics initiatives, visit www.quantuminternationalcorp.com/investors.html.
EGPI Firecreek today announced serious Q2 momentum drivers, including projected development activities on the 240-acre Boyette Lease, development on the South 40, the completion/sale of 50% of the North 40 interests in their J.B. TUBB Lease, Inc., and sale of their 51% majority interest in Arctic Solar Engineering. EFIR currently operates via wholly-owned subsidiaries, with oil and gas services handled by Chanwest Resources, LLC and resource acquisition through Energy Producers, Inc.
Needless to say it’s been a huge Q2 over at EFIR and projections indicate substantial development activity for the remainder of the interval, with elements like the (previously announced) signing of a Letter of Intent with Cubo Energy, PLC to kick off drilling programs in West Central Texas, as the pair goes after rich Barnett Formation targets. Looking at as little as 10-14 days before definitive agreements with an assignee of Cubo are rendered and then an extensive 3D seismic surveying agenda designed to quantify the 240 acre Boyette site down in Shackelford County, TX.
EFIR also signed a key agreement with Cubo back at the start of March this year, making a $1.15M sale of North 40 oil and gas interests in the J.B. Tubb Leasehold Estate (currently in restructuring due to recent regulatory changes on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, interest assignments via definitive long form agreement projected within a 10-14 day window). This agreement will place Cubo (or an assignee) in a financing role for the initial sinking of an 8.3k foot well targeting the Ellenburger Formation (on an earn-in basis), as well as setup the framework for additional, planned infrastructural development/participation via an earn-in/financed basis (projected initial CAPEX of some $1.575M).
CEO of EFIR, Dennis Alexander, cited the regulatory environment on the Frankfurt Exchange over the last six months (leading to several unforeseen delays) as the primary mover behind the modification of their agreement with Cubo, reassuring shareholders that requisite changes have since been formulated, and that the clear forward direction established for this relationship has energized both parties.
This relationship will help to facilitate the planned activity in West Central Texas, as Cubo and EFIR pursue specific Barnett Shale characteristics mapped via the 3D seismic work. The receptivity is strong on all accounts, especially geologically speaking, and both companies are eager to get 1-2 horizontals (or an equivalent 8 verticals) in on the Boyette lease as soon as possible.
Mr. Alexander underscored the significance of the drilling programs aimed at developing the Ellenburger Formation, the seismic work being done, and preparatory vectors for realizing some serious Barnett action.
In addition to all this hydrocarbon effort, EFIR announced signing of a Letter of Intent with W2 Energy, Inc., covering the sale of the company’s 51% majority interest in subsidiary Artic Solar Engineering, Inc. (definitive agreement projected within 7-10 days). Mr. Alexander noted the completion of required/audited year-end and unaudited Q1 financial statements by both parties, offering the market a sound benchmark of the deal, as well as projecting a long, healthy relationship between both parties moving forward.

InVivo Therapeutics Holdings recently announced that the company’s CEO, Frank Reynolds, is scheduled to make appearances on two television news programs. The appearances will occur on Saturday, May 19, and Sunday, May 20, on the channels KXAN-TV and WXYZ-TV, respectively.
Founded in 2005, InVivo is a Cambridge, MA-based company focused on developing technology using polymers to assist patients who are paralyzed from spinal cord injury. InVivo was founded by Robert S. Langer, ScD. Professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Joseph P. Vacanti, M.D., who is affiliated with Massachusetts General Hospital. The company won the 2011 David F. Apple Award for its outstanding contribution to spinal cord injury medicine.
Reynolds will be discussing InVivo’s new polymer-based treatment that uses a scaffold to provide structural support to a damaged spinal cord, preventing the spinal cord from scarring. Reynolds will also discuss new products under development by InVivo, such as hydrogel technologies. Reynolds’ first TV appearance will be on Austin News Today Weekend, which airs on Saturday, May 19 at 7:20am CDT on KXAN-TV, the local NBC affiliate for the greater Austin, TX area. The second appearance will be on 7 Action News This Weekend, which airs Sunday, May 20 at 8:40am EDT on WXYZ-TV, the local ABC affiliate in Detroit, MI.
“Our technology is a true platform that can be leveraged to create many Neurotrauma products. InVivo is developing technologies to treat chronic injuries like Drew’s, as well as therapies for other nervous system conditions such as chronic pain due to nerve compression and other peripheral nerve injuries. We’re currently under review at FDA for our first SCI treatment, and we look forward to receiving approval to begin those human studies in 2012,” said Reynolds.
