Date:2/18/2009

First in the State of Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SpectraScience, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: SCIE), a medical device company, today announced that it will place its LUMA(R) Cervical Imaging System to detect pre-cancers at Minnesota Gynecology and Surgery, located in Edina, Minnesota.

Dr. James B. Presthus, co-founder of Minnesota Gynecology and Surgery, stated "The introduction of the LUMA System represents our continued dedication in providing the best care possible for our patients. The LUMA System gives our practice a unique and powerful tool when following up on abnormal Pap test results. We have always been on the leading edge of new technologies, and with the LUMA System our patients will experience improved outcomes from earlier detection of pre-cancers of the cervix and, therefore, earlier treatment. For the first time, this device gives us objective tissue diagnosis capability as compared to today's subjective interpretation methods. We are the first practice in Minnesota to offer the non-invasive LUMA test."

The LUMA Cervical Imaging System was developed to significantly improve the detection of high-grade precancerous cervical abnormalities that have the potential to become invasive cancer. Based on data from the National ALTS study, it is estimated that precancerous cervical disease goes undiagnosed in about 200,000 American women each year. The LUMA System provides a safe, non-invasive and effective method, that when used as an adjunct to colposcopy, has been demonstrated to uncover at least 26% more high-grade precancerous disease than colposcopy alone.

SpectraScience CEO Jim Hitchin commented, "We are pleased to have placed our LUMA System at Minnesota Gynecology and Surgery. This placement represents our continued dedication in developing and bringing more effective cancer screening technologies to the market with the result of better and ear
