Date:4/24/2008

SAN DIEGO, April 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 Czech market through the Almeda Company, a Prague-based firm specializing in medical device sales in the region for almost two decades.

Michel Vaudry, SpectraScience's Director of International Sales commented that "the Czech Republic is attractive on many fronts as an entry point into the European market for our WavSTAT System, both for its aging population and its established $1.2 billion medical device market. In addition, the Czech Republic has one of the highest incidences of colorectal cancer in the world. We are exploring additions to our export sales team in other European countries such as Italy, Germany and France."

Almeda's Director Ales Zavorka stated that "the WavSTAT System fills a significant gap in our product offering to the Czech market which has a particularly high incidence of colon cancer. Other drivers for the product in the market are its ease of use and performance, both of which are extremely appealing to the physician community."

Key Benefits to the WavSTAT Optical Biopsy System

-- Leaves polyps on site if they are not pre-cancerous

-- Ability for physician to perform physical biopsy at exactly same site

as optical biopsy

-- Aids physician during colon cancer surgery

-- Complementary to NBI and Smart Pill
