SpectraScience Secures Distribution for WavSTAT(R) Cancer Diagnosis System in Spain
Date:6/24/2009

SAN DIEGO, June 24 /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 the Spanish market through SIM, a Madrid based firm specializing in the marketing and distribution of innovative medical devices.

Michel Vaudry, SpectraScience's VP of Sales and Marketing, said, "We are pleased to add another distribution partner in Europe. SIM is a respected and well established medical distribution company and adding the WavSTAT Optical Biopsy System to their portfolio is a strong validation of the need for our technology. SIM was established in 2000 and distributes other leading gastroenterological diagnostic products from market leaders including PENTAX and ERBE."

SIM's Consejero Delegado, Jose Manuel Ruiz, stated that, "We are pleased to be SpectraScience's distribution partner and believe there is significant market potential for this innovative gastrointestinal cancer diagnostic system. Our strategy is to be the leader in gastro-diagnostics and the WavSTAT Optical Biopsy System is an ideal fit with our PENTAX endoscopes. 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 an 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 can prevent additional costly treatment."

Vaudry added, "Mr. Ruiz 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 Spain. SIM is a perfect partner for SpectraScience as they also represent PENTAX. PENTAX is one of the leading manufacturers of endoscopes which are used in conjunction with our product."
