Vuzix Corporation (NASDAQ:VUZI) announced that its M400 Smart Glasses were part of a winning submission to an American Medical Association (AMA) competition highlighting “meaningful learner-led activities or projects in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.” The project involving Vuzix glasses was a clinical study led by med student Lekha Devara at the University of Louisville. First-year medical residents normally shadow doctors in order to decide which medical fields they will study, but in March 2020, the university barred students from entering clinical settings to slow the spread of the virus. The study equipped doctors with Vuzix Smart Glasses, allowing 320 medical students to virtually “shadow” them without physically being in the hospital.

American Manganese Inc (CVE:AMY) announced Friday that its initial recycled NCA product, produced by the company’s cathode reactor, has been prepared and shipped for independent analytical testing. In a statement, the company noted that the cathode precursor material is a valuable input in the battery manufacturing process due to the fact that modern cathode chemistries are produced in fine-tuned chemical processes that have strict requirements for chemical composition, purity, particle shape, particle size, and uniformity. American Manganese said its goal is to ensure the cathode precursor material produced by its patented RecycLiCo process meets these high-quality benchmarks expected by tier-one battery manufacturers.

Willow Biosciences Inc. (TSX:WLLW) (TSX:WLLW.WT) (OTCQX:CANSF) said it has closed its previously announced upsized bought deal offering of 17,424,800 common shares at a price of $1.65 each, which includes 2,272,800 common shares issued under the exercise in full of the over-allotment option, for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $28.75 million. The company noted that participation in the Offering was comprised primarily of existing cornerstone shareholders and new institutional buyside funds. “We’re very pleased with the results of the Offering, the proceeds of which will allow the Company to accelerate capital spending towards execution of our commercialization plan for our existing portfolio cannabinoids and continue to explore opportunities for cannabinoids in development,” said Trevor Peters, president and chief executive officer of Willow in a statement.

Blackrock Gold Corp.

Predictiv AI Inc (CVE:PAI) (OTC:INOTF) (FRA:71TA) announced Friday that US-based visitor management solutions company Security Identification Systems Corp has signed on to sell the company’s ThermalPass coronavirus (COVID-19) screening devices in the US. ThermalPass was developed to lessen the spread of COVID-19 in high-traffic locations by using medical-grade sensors to scan people (up to 60 per minute using 1,200 sensors) who pass through it and silently identify anyone with an abnormally high body temperature, a possible indicator of COVID-19.
