WEST BRIDGEWATER, Mass., Sept. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pressure BioSciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: PBIO) today announced that it has received approval to CE Mark the Barocycler NEP2320, a patent-pending, lightweight, compressed air driven pressure cycling technology (PCT) instrument. The Company also announced that it has been issued a CB Scheme Test Certificate and Report indicating that the Barocycler NEP2320 has been found in compliance with the IEC 61010-1 international standard applicable to safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control, and laboratory use.
The NEP2320 is the second PCT-based instrument for which PBI has received CE Marking approval and CB Scheme compliance. On May 1, 2007, the Company announced approval and compliance for the Barocycler NEP3229, the current centerpiece of its PCT Sample Preparation System (PCT SPS).
Dr. Nathan P. Lawrence, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for PBI, said: "We are very pleased to have received CE Mark approval and IEC 61010-1 compliance for the Barocycler NEP2320. With approvals and compliance now in hand for both instruments of the PCT SPS, we now plan to accelerate our efforts toward reaching our goal of initiating international commercialization of the PCT Sample Preparation System in 2008. To that end, we have meetings scheduled over the next six weeks with our current distributors in France and Japan, and with potential distributors in Germany, Australia, and South Korea, all of whom have been anxiously awaiting our CE Mark and IEC 61010-1 approvals. In addition to these meetings, we also plan to immediately seek additional distributors for the PCT SPS in other countries around the world, especially in Europe and Asia."
