SpectraScience, Inc. (SCIE.PK) Initiates Sales Training With PENTAX in Germany and Belgium


9/27/2012 9:03:28 AM

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - September 27, 2012) - SpectraScience, Inc. (OTCQB: SCIE), a San Diego-based medical device company, recently completed training of the PENTAX Europe sales teams in Germany and Belgium on the WavSTAT4 Optical Biopsy System. The sales training effort follows the successful completion of training PENTAX technicians on the installation and maintenance of WavSTAT units at hospitals in several countries in Europe.

In addition to the sales training, WavSTAT technology was demonstrated in the PENTAX booth at the German Society of Digestive and Metabolic Disease Conference in Hamburg, September 19-22. The conference was attended by leading gastroenterologists and abdominal surgeons, and represented the first opportunity to feature WavSTAT at a major professional event in Germany.

"Our sales training program in Europe is off to a terrific start, and we are moving forward in other countries in the next few weeks," said Michael Oliver, SpectraScience's Chief Executive Officer. "The PENTAX Europe sales force is very enthusiastic regarding the prospects for WavSTAT, and the conference audience regarded it as an important addition to the PENTAX product portfolio. We believe WavSTAT will generate new revenue for PENTAX in existing accounts and, perhaps more importantly, also provide access to competitive accounts seeking a unique technology."
