Sonoma Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNOA) surged 25.82% to $9.6 in the after-hours session following the reports that it has entered into a non-exclusive distribution agreement with Gabriel Science, LLC for the sale of Microcyn Technology products into the dental market and it has already taken its first order.
Sonoma manufactures Endocyn, a Microcyn Technology product, a biocompatible root canal irrigant that is non-staining for teeth or restorations. According to a study published in the Journal of Endodontics, Regenerative Endodontics by the Departments of Endodontics at Louisiana State University School of Dentistry, Endocyn showed less toxicity than sodium hypochlorite.

Amy Trombly, CEO of Sonoma Pharmaceuticals, said, “This is an exciting development in dental technology on our part, to expand our offerings of Microcyn-powered dental products available in the U.S. market.”
