Toronto, Ontario, April 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Luminar Media Group, Inc., (Luminar, OTCMKTS: LRGR) and The Jenex Corporation (Jenex, NEX: JEN.H) report the completion of a working prototype for the patent pending TherOZap™ device.

Over the next several weeks Jenex will be coordinating with the Techna Institute at UHN to devise the protocols for the initial tests. It is anticipated that once all testing is complete, Jenex will commercialize TherOZap™, pending regulatory approval where required. 

Rob Fia, CEO commented, "We are very excited with the TherOZap™ working prototype. Jenex looks forward to working with UHN to begin the initial testing to determine the effectiveness of the device at inactivating both the Zika and West Nile viruses."
