SpectraScience Secures Distribution for WavSTAT(R) Cancer Diagnosis System in France
Date:7/7/2009

SAN DIEGO, July 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SpectraScience, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: SCIE), a San Diego based medical device company, today announced that it has established a distribution partnership in France through Medipartner, a Paris based firm specializing in the marketing and distribution of innovative gastrointestinal medical devices. The Company believes that building an effective distribution network in France will also enhance sales in the emerging North African and Middle Eastern markets due to their relationship with France.

Michel Vaudry, SpectraScience's VP of Sales and Marketing, said, "We are pleased to add Medipartner to our expanding distribution footprint throughout Europe, and are optimistic that physicians and more importantly, patients in France will greatly benefit from the introduction of WavSTAT to this market. In terms of cancers plaguing France's population, colon cancer has one of the highest rates of incidence and mortality."

Medipartner's Chief Executive, Christian Arnould, stated that, "We decided to add the WavSTAT to products that we distribute because it is both innovative and it will translate into progress for cancer detection. Our focus is in the gastrointestinal market, and based on our experience and understanding of that market, I think that the WavSTAT is a great fit for us, and our customers." Medipartner is the French distributor for Sandhill Scientific, a leading international GI diagnostics company based in Colorado.

"We are shipping a unit to France this week," added Vaudry. "I will be going to France to assist Christian in making demonstrations of the WavSTAT to physicians at several healthcare centers of excellence, including the Hospital Edourard Herriot in Lyon, which has just been ranked as one of the 10 best healthcare centers in the world by Newsweek magazine." In addition, Mr. Vaudry noted that Lyon is the headquarters of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), one of the most prestigious cancer research facilities in operation today.
