PennyTrader Publisher, Pennystocktweeters.cor, NYC Marketing Inc, AllPennyStocks, and Momentum Trades reported earlier on Guided Therapeutics, Inc. (GTHP), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Founded in 1992, Guided Therapeutics, Inc. is developing a rapid and painless testing platform. This platform is for the early detection of disease based on the Company's patented biophotonic technology that uses light to detect disease at the cellular level. Biophotonics is the science of generating and harnessing light to image, detect and manipulate biological materials. The Company's first planned product is the LuViva® Advanced Cervical Scan - a non-invasive device used to detect cervical disease instantly and at the point of care. Guided Therapeutics lists on the OTC Bulletin Board; the Company is based in Norcross, Georgia.

In a multi-center clinical trial, with women at risk for cervical disease, the LuViva® Advanced Cervical Scan technology was able to detect cervical cancer up to two years earlier than conventional modalities, according to published reports. The Guided Therapeutics LuViva® Advanced Cervical Scan is an investigational device and is limited by federal law to investigational use.

The design of LuViva® is as a fast, painless test that, unlike Pap smears and HPV testing, does not require a tissue sample or the delay of laboratory analysis. LuViva® utilizes proprietary technology to identify cancers and precancers quickly by analyzing light reflected from the cervix. The technology distinguishes between normal and diseased tissue by detecting biochemical and morphological changes at the cellular level.

In addition, Guided Therapeutics has entered into a partnership with Konica Minolta to develop a non-invasive test for the early detection of esophageal cancer using the technology platform. This is the Esophageal Dysplasia Detection System, or EDDS.  EDDS is a non-invasive, point of care device that uses biophotonics to scan the surface of the esophagus known as the "Barrett's Esophagus" area.

Last week, Guided Therapeutics announced that they successfully completed electromagnetic compatibility testing, one of two major categories of third party testing required to label the LuViva® Advanced Cervical Scan with the ISO 60601 Edition 3 CE Mark and Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Mark. Upon successful completion of the basic safety testing, LuViva® will be eligible for labeling with the CSA Mark. The CSA Mark, while not required for marketing in Canada, is sometimes preferred by some larger medical institutions.

Currently, LuViva® has marketing approval from Health Canada and received its first CE Mark, an ISO 60601 Edition 2 Notification, in July 2012. Guided Therapeutics was awarded ISO 13485 certification in January 2011. Moreover, LuViva® has been under U.S. Food and Drug Administration Premarket review since September 23, 2010.

Loans4Less.com, Inc. (LFLS) Redefines the Online Mortgage Broker

The idea of using a broker of any kind, a middleman acting as representative between two separate parties, has always been met with a certain amount of skepticism, perhaps based on the notion that they are unnecessary or even disreputable, offering little of real value for what they get paid.

It’s a common attitude, but, with few exceptions, it’s a myth. Although there are many types of brokers, some paid more than others, most brokers provide users with critical services for relatively little money, partly because many of the deals a broker spends time on never come to fruition and the broker gets nothing. But having a competent and reputable broker as a representative in serious transactions is almost always a good decision. Regardless of the particular type of broker, they know the industry and its secrets, and will almost always more than pay for themselves. Going into such financial transactions without a broker is a little like going to court without a lawyer, it seldom works out. The problem isn’t whether or not to use a broker, but simply how to find one that is both capable and honest.

That is the core of the Loans4Less message.

Timberline Resources Corp. (TLR) on Target for Mid-2013 Gold Production near Butte, Montana

Timberline Resources, the domestic precious mineral developer focused on a portfolio of properties in Idaho, Montana, and Nevada, which holds a 50% carried interest ownership stake in the highly prospective Butte Highlands Gold Project in Montana, reported today that the company has received the necessary draft Hard Rock Operating Permit and Compliance Determination for Butte Highlands from the Montana Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ).

This essentially validates that the operating permit application meets all Metal Mine Reclamation Act requirements, meaning that TLR is a shoe-in to receive the final Hard Rock Operating Permit on time to meet the projected mid-2013 start date for gold production at Butte Highlands. Great news for TLR and its shareholders, especially since the water discharge and road use permits are looking like they will come in well before the final operating permit itself.

The proposed mine plan for Butte is targeting initial output rates in the neighborhood of 400 tons/day, digging into the intercepts turned up via last year’s 50k feet of underground work that showed intervals as rich as 6.77 opt Au over 14.5 feet. With all of the requisite surface facilities built and an additional 4.5k feet of underground infrastructure in place, TLR and their JV partner are chomping at the bit to start pumping out material to the nearby mill.

CEO of TLR, Paul Dircksen, characterized today’s announcement as a real milestone for the JV partnership and was clearly pleased at how ably the rigorous permit application process has been handled, with the thoroughness of responses offered easily satisfying the fastidious inquiry and commentary from regulators. Dircksen underscored how the company’s JV partner continues to fund permitting and development for the project, providing close support to ensure that both processes go smoothly. Dircksen confirmed the mid-2013 projected start date for production at Butte Highlands, and it is important to note that this property sits in the same huge geologic domain that gave birth to such famous deposits as the multi-million ounce Butte, Golden Sunlight, Montana Tunnels, and Virginia City.

Strong indicators on TLR’s Montana front here as the Butte project is really shaping up to be a production home run hitter for the company. Management has a proven track record and the vision to turn that experience into growth for TLR shareholders through judicious exploration and development on advanced-stage domestic gold projects. With an NI 43-101 Inferred resource of 221k ounce over at the flagship Lookout Mountain Project in Nevada, TLR has the kind of broad asset footprint that makes them a force to be reckoned with.

The final element pending before the definitive permit can be issued is a review by MDEQ in accordance with the Montana Environmental Policy Act and a determination as to whether or not there is sufficient bonding for the project. Looks like all lights are green for TLR really, as today’s announcement makes the final permit a near certainty. We should be seeing direct shipments from Butte next year to the nearby mill, just as the precious metals market really starts to heat up.

Scio Diamond Technology Corp. (SCIO) Board of Directors Appoints New CEO

Scio Diamond Technology recently announced that Steve Kelley has joined the company as its new Chief Executive Officer, effective December 5, 2012.

Ed Adams, the Chairman of Scio’s Board of Directors, said: “We are delighted that Steve has accepted our offer to lead Scio. His diverse skill set, international business experience and technical acumen are a great fit for the company. In many ways, we see Cree, Steve’s former company, as an aspirational model for Scio and where it might go. From that perspective, Steve’s experience leading high-growth technology businesses fits ideally with Scio’s continuing and rapid evolution toward large-scale production of diamond material. I’d also like to thank Joseph Lancia for his service to the company. He helped make Scio a commercially viable enterprise with excellent growth prospects.”

Regarding his new employer, Mr. Kelley remarked: “I am very impressed with Scio’s growth potential. The fundamentals are excellent – a well-established and patent-protected technology, strong customer demand, moderate capital intensity and good gross margins. Scio diamonds are an eco-friendly alternative to mined diamonds. Scio has the potential to be a phenomenal business.”

A seasoned professional with almost 20 years of experience, Mr. Kelley was most recently at Cree, Inc. where he served as COO and Executive Vice President. His responsibilities included worldwide production, licensing, technology development, and the chips & materials business. Over a period of 24 months, Mr. Kelley directed a capacity expansion program that more than doubled unit output while significantly lowering unit cost.

Prior to his employment at Cree, Mr. Kelley was a Vice President at Texas Instruments, Inc. where he led the turnaround of a large business unit. Prior to that, he was a Senior Vice President at Philips Semiconductors, where he successfully grew sales and profits at a variety of small and large businesses in North America, Europe, and Asia.

Mr. Kelley earned a SB ChE at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a JD at Santa Clara University. He is also a member of the board at Switch Lighting, a California-based LED lighting company.

Wave Systems Corp. (WAVX) Garners Prestigious GSN Award at Gala, Recognized for Homeland Security Efforts

At a gala dinner that was filled with hundreds of government officials and industry executives, Government Security News (GSN) announced Wave Systems among those awarded in its 4th Annual Homeland Security Awards Competition.

The Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health (DMH) successfully used Safend DPS to manage the organization’s thousands of endpoints.
