The Honourable Harjit S. Sajjan announces funding for Nanozen Industries Inc. that will help bring automated workplace safety technology to the pharmaceutical sector

June 1, 2022 – Vancouver, British Columbia – Pacific Economic Development Canada

British Columbia’s technology sector is creating jobs, spurring economic growth, and providing solutions to important challenges, like increasing occupational health and safety in workplaces.  

Companies depend on technology to ensure their workplaces are safe for employees and clients. Many organizations still rely on cumbersome and time-consuming particle monitoring processes that manually collect air quality samples that are sent offsite for analysis. This makes it difficult to react in real-time to contaminates that could be affecting employee health and safety.

Today, the Honourable Harjit S. Sajjan, Minister of International Development and Minister responsible for the Pacific Economic Development Agency of Canada (PacifiCan), announced $302,500 in funding through the Business Scale-up and Productivity (BSP) program to help Nanozen Industries Inc. (Nanozen).

Vancouver-based Nanozen is a pioneer in developing innovative approaches to reducing aerosol exposure in industrial workplace environments. In 2016, the company received federal support to commercialize its DustCount system, a wearable, real-time particle monitor that continuously checks and provides reports on air quality to protect employees from exposure to hazardous substances.

With BSP funding, Nanozen will take the next step by expanding its market reach of the DustCount system to the pharmaceutical sector. Nanozen will calibrate their existing technology for new uses, test new product features with the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies, and conduct customer demonstrations. It is anticipated that this investment will help the company boost its revenue growth significantly and increase employment by 33 per cent.
