NEW YORK, March 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intelligent Bio Solutions Inc. ("Intelligent Bio Solutions" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: INBS), a life sciences company developing and delivering intelligent, non-invasive, real-time testing solutions, today announced that the Company has selected Human and Supplement Testing Australia ("HASTA"), Australia’s largest independent sports drug testing laboratory, as its preferred drug testing specialist in Australia to complete lab-based confirmation testing for its Intelligent Fingerprinting System, which analyzes sweat to screen for recent drug use.
