SpectraScience, Inc. Announces WavSTAT Live Demonstration at GEEW in Brussels

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 19, 2013) - SpectraScience, Inc. (OTCQB: SCIE) announced today that its WavSTAT4 Optical Biopsy System is being demonstrated at the 31st annual Gastroenterology and Endotherapy European Workshop (GEEW) that is taking place from Monday, June 17, through Wednesday, June 19, 2013 at the Brussels Exhibition Centre Hall 10 and Auditorium 2000 in Brussels, Belgium.

GEEW, which started in 1983, is held every year in June and has established itself as one of the largest European forums in gastroenterology, featuring around 560 participants from 60 countries worldwide.

This meeting is designed for endoscopists and gastroenterologists but also for physicians in training as well as for nurses and GI assistants. It includes live video demonstrations permitting real-time communication between faculty and registrants during procedures, using interactive personal computer assistance, lectures and quizzes.

SpectraScience CEO Mike Oliver commented, "This is a great opportunity for doctors to demonstrate and showcase the effectiveness and cost benefits of our WavSTAT4 Optical Biopsy System. The more GI practitioners who understand how the WavSTAT4 can improve diagnosis and lower the cost of healthcare, the faster the WavSTAT4 can move to mass adoption in European markets."
