Global One Consulting Announces Exclusive Contract to Expand Saigene Biotech, Inc. Sales in Emerging Markets
Date:7/22/2009

PORTLAND, Ore., July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Global One Principal Irl M. Davis today announced a relationship with Saigene Biotech, Inc. for the introduction and sale of a new class of harmful algae bloom detection technology in ASEAN nations, China, and Bangladesh. Global One, a consulting resource with thirty years of experience in China and other Asian nations, specializes in helping emerging products and technologies find their place in the global market. "Saigene's groundbreaking new assay technologies represent a significant advancement in early detection of the HAB microorganisms that undermine health and commerce throughout the world," said Davis.

Saigene's Universal Assay System is a patented method that includes a Universal Assay Processor and assay kits that are ready for the addition of sea water and fresh water samples. It is currently being used by major research and commercial entities worldwide. The Saigene assay enables automated, walk-away testing that is highly sensitive and able to quickly detect the presence of algal cells, even when they are not detectable under a microscope. Algae, the most abundant photosynthetic organism in marine and freshwater ecosystems, can damage vegetation, coral reefs, fish and wildlife, and water quality when it "blooms" excessively. Human exposure to algae-induced water toxins can cause neurological impairment, gastrointestinal upset or respiratory irritation, sometimes resulting in severe illness or death.

"The incidence of harmful algae blooms is rapidly increasing, both in number of blooms and in geographic spread," said Davis. "Early warning can help water quality agencies to prepare and alert affected populations and businesses before the HAB destroys health and well being."

"Our relationship with Global One reflects Saigene's commitment to wider adoption of assay technology to safeguard waterways from invasive harmful algae blooms. The high cost, complicated sample preparation, and slow pace of legacy monitoring systems have been impediments to achieving reliable results in the early detection of harmful algae blooms," said Tom Hurford, CEO of Saigene Biotech. "Saigene's Universal Assay Processor and detection test kits offer a long-awaited, less expensive and faster solution to detect harmful algae blooms. In addition, our assay system encourages research and experimentation by organizations around the world in their search for different types of blooms and organisms."
