INVO Bioscience Announces Completion of Registrations in Bulgaria and Venezuela

BEVERLY, MA--(Marketwire - April 15, 2010) -  INVO Bioscience, Inc. (OTCBB: IVOB), a medical device company focused on treatment options for patients diagnosed with infertility, announced today that the product registrations required for sale have been completed for Bulgaria in Europe and Venezuela, South America

As previously announced in January, the company has signed a distribution agreement with BioGenini Medical EOOD. BioGenini along with INVO has worked with the Bulgarian government and completed the registration process for the INVOcell. BioGenini Medical is the first distribution partner for INVO Bioscience in Europe and they can now begin calling on doctors for the sale of the INVOcell in Bulgaria. INVO and BioGenini plan on launching the INVOcell during a Bulgarian national infertility conference held in June. Additionally, BioGenini has agreed to import and ship to the individual customers in other European countries who have requested the purchase of the INVO cell. This is a step that allows us to get the INVOcell to some of the physicians in Europe who have made direct requests to INVO Bioscience but could not receive product due to lack of European distributorship. 

The registration in Venezuela will allow Daxley, INVO Biosciences' distributor, to begin selling in this country. Some doctors have already been trained in Venezuela and Dr. Sonoja in Venezuela was the first physician to perform the INVO procedure that resulted in the first baby being born in this country.

Registrations are in process for several other Latin American countries including Brazil and Argentina.

INVO Bioscience's patented product, the INVOcell, allows for vaginal incubation of eggs, sperm and early embryo development during the infertility treatment process. "These registrations will enable INVO Bioscience to continue towards our goal of treating patients with the INVO procedure in countries around the world where couples cannot afford or access treatment," said INVO Bioscience CEO Kathleen Karloff.
