Company Signs Agreement with Given Imaging Ltd. to Offer Customers Integrated Testing Solution

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., May 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Alpine Biomed Corporation, a global leader in specialty diagnostic devices, announced today that it has signed an agreement with Given Imaging Ltd. to enhance its gastrodiagnostic testing capabilities. The company's GastroTrac(R) gastroenterology software suite will interface with Given Imaging's Bravo(R) pH Monitoring System to provide doctors with a single system for their gastrointestinal testing needs.

Alpine Biomed will incorporate the Bravo pH software into a fully integrated version of GastroTrac with a comprehensive range of tests including catheter-based pH monitoring, upper and lower GI motility testing, electrogastrography and biofeedback. To simplify patient records, the Bravo pH software will share the GastroTrac database with the catheter-based pH monitoring studies. Alpine Biomed's VersaFlex(R) pH catheters and the Bravo pH capsule are the only pH devices validated for use on the integrated GastroTrac system.

"We are pleased to offer our customers a single solution for their gastrodiagnostic testing needs. This agreement will significantly benefit both our current and new customers. We look forward to working with our customers to implement an integrated solution that will better serve their practices," said Alpine Biomed President and CEO John Arnott.

Alpine Biomed is exhibiting at the Society for Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates Annual Course in St. Louis, May 17-19 (booth 737) and at the Digestive Disease Week meeting in Chicago May 31- June 3 (booth 1801).
