Virocule announces national distribution agreement for ANOSMIC® COVID-19 Smell Tester with Dr. Ho’s for the Canadian consumer and retail market

TORONTO, Jan. 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Two Markham, Ontario based natural health companies announced a strategic partnership to expand the availability of ANOSMIC® COVID-19 Smell Tester in the Canadian market. Virocule Inc has signed an exclusive national consumer and retail distribution agreement with Dr. Ho Now Health Products, a leading provider of health products to consumers. With this partnership, ANOSMIC® is expected to be available at major retail stores throughout Canada in the next several weeks and currently through

The ANOSMIC® COVID-19 Smell Tester is a rapid, early detection and screening device for a common symptom of the coronavirus infection, but not a cure or vaccine for COVID-19. Sudden loss or deterioration of smell has been found in numerous scientific studies to be a reliable and specific symptom of a COVID-19 virus infection. ANOSMIC® tests for this symptom with over 90% accuracy and is recommended by the manufacturer as a daily check for adults and children over 12 years old. It takes 30-seconds to test: simply spray on a tissue or your wrist, sniff, and assess if you can detect the odour of the blended natural plant-based products. The product is sterile, aseptic and virus free and a test authorized for sale by Health Canada. The product has an intense, characteristic smell that in clinical studies has shown high sensitivity and specificity in checking for a smell dysfunction.

ANOSMIC® is available in two convenient sizes, a 15 ml (75 tests) bottle easy to carry in a purse and a large 100 ml (500 tests) suitable for business users.   

Michael Bryant, Virocule Inc President said, “We are very excited to be partnering with Dr. Ho Now Health Products on our ANOSMIC COVID-19 Smell Tester.

There is an urgent need for a mass testing product like ANOSMIC® to be available to consumers so that they can feel safer at home and work and help curb the spread of the virus.”
