Astrotech Hires Industry Veteran Joe Levinthal to Lead AgLAB’s Science Team


AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Aglab–Astrotech Corporation (NASDAQ: ASTC) announced today that its AgLAB Inc. subsidiary has hired Joe Levinthal, a hemp and cannabis industry veteran and an expert in mass spectrometry, as its Chief Science Officer, to help lead AgLAB’s product development team. Joe brings an extensive background in applying highly complex scientific instrumentation to develop products derived from hemp and cannabis, and he has worked with some of the leading companies in the industry. “As a consultant to AgLAB, I was highly intrigued with the game changing technology that the AgLAB team developed. I am excited to join the team to help AgLAB refine its technology further and to launch multiple products that will be highly valuable additions to any hemp and cannabis extraction and distillation laboratory,” stated Mr. Levinthal.

Other technologies are limited in their ability to provide information during the distillation process and traditional methods rely on a very non-exact recipe to process a batch, often leading to lower yields. “We are excited to have Joe join our AgLAB team,” said Thomas B. Pickens III, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of AgLAB and Astrotech. “Joe has been a highly respected resource of ours during the early stages of our development, and he is a key addition to our team.” About Astrotech Corporation Astrotech (NASDAQ: ASTC) is a science and technology development and commercialization company that launches, manages, and builds scalable companies based on innovative technology in order to maximize shareholder value.
