SpectraScience Secures Distribution for WavSTAT(R) Cancer Diagnosis System in Germany & Austria
Date:5/13/2009

SAN DIEGO, May 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SpectraScience, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: SCIE), a San Diego based medical device company, today announced that it has established a distribution partnership for the German and Austrian markets through Krainer Medtechnik, a Vienna-based firm specializing in the marketing and distribution of innovative medical devices.

Michel Vaudry, SpectraScience's VP Sales and Marketing, commented, "We are pleased to add another distribution partner in Europe. Krainer Medtechnik is a respected and well-established medical distribution company and its decision to add the WavSTAT Optical Biopsy System to their portfolio is a strong validation of the need for our technology. Krainer was established in 1979 and distributes other leading gastroenterological diagnostics products from market leaders including Alpine Biomed, Medtronic Functional Diagnosis, Spirus, Horizons, IntroMedic, and Sierra."

Krainer Medtechnik's President & Managing Director, Guido Carniolan, stated that, "We are pleased to be SpectraScience's distribution partner and believe there is significant market potential for this innovative Gastro Intestinal cancer diagnostic system. With our strategy to be the leader in Gastro-Diagnostics, the WavSTAT Optical Biopsy System is an ideal fit into our program. We see important benefits to our physicians, enabling them to quickly distinguish between normal and precancerous tissue in the GI tract and allowing for physical biopsy at exactly the same site and time that the optical biopsy is performed. More importantly, the WavSTAT objectively identifies the borders of tissue during surgery to determine if all cancerous tissue has been removed. This will prevent a second surgery."

Vaudry added, "Mr. Carniolan is a respected thought leader in the healthcare market and his company's support of the WavSTAT System will be instrumental in our acceptance at the major gastroenterology centers in Germany and Austria. Krainer Medtechnik is a perfect partner for SpectraScience as we move our business forward."
