Quantel SA (Euronext: QUA), a leading manufacturer of solid state lasers, announced today that it has entered into a Distribution Agreement with National Biological, a leading researcher and developer of light-based systems for medical and cosmetic treatments, for Quantel's 308 Excimer System for monochromatic UVB treatment of psoriasis and vitiligo in the United States.

It is proven to be very effective and extremely easy to use. National Biological is very pleased to be able to provide Dermatologists with the best value of any targeted phototherapy system."
