NEW YORK, TORONTO and MONTREAL, Sept. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ – BioSpec Global Solutions Inc., and partner -ICBS Ltd. (OTCPK: ICBT), announced today that it has entered into talks with Chinese representatives. The meetings will take place in Boston on the 15th. of October.

China is one of the world’s largest markets for our analyzer’s and has one of the worst water situations on the planet” said Don Saunders President and CEO of BioSpec Global Solutions. ” The unnamed group represents interests in China for the manufacture and distribution of the TOGS product lines.”

BGS will be negotiating for the Asian distribution rights which will cover all of China. The Chinese have indicated they are interested in the TOGS 9000 system that will allow water analysis in remote areas. The TOGS 9000 is capable of transmitting remotely, data via links to any place in China.

Biospec Global Solutions Inc. TOGS 9000(TM), based on TOGS (Time of Growth Spectrophotometer) technique, provides state-of-the-art rapid, simultaneous detection and enumeration of microbiological parameters such as Total Coliforms, E.coli., Enterococci and Total Bacteria. The 9000 model can detect the presence of E.coli., Enterococci and Total Bacteria within two hours directly at the remote site.

Using globally approved chromogenic /fluorogenic reagent methods it provides automatic detection technique, thus removing any potential human error associated with visual detection process.

Conventional methods of water quality testing have been depended on sophisticated laboratories and highly trained technicians. Conventional methods are generally time consuming, complex and difficult to undertake outside a laboratory environment. With the advent of the TOGS 9000(TM), chromomeric reagents for these indicator organisms not only time, complexity and cost have been reduced in water testing. Improper sampling, sample preservation and transporting can all lead to erroneous results when testing is done away from the point of sampling. In most cases this requires trained technicians to collect samples and deliver the samples to the laboratory.

The Aquasure TOGS 9000(TM) this single test, precision, portable incubator utilizing the patented STEPPI(TM) technology provide on-site testing of microbial contamination in drinking water. Used in conjunction with a chromomeric reagent, it provides an accurate, fool-proof microbial test in the detection of Total Coliforms and E.coli to WHO standards using globally approved methods (USEPA, AWWA-APHA etc).

Verification studies for the TOGS system(TM) has been completed by Ryerson University and the instrument has, been accepted by the EPA in the U.S. for use in presence absence testing of drinking water when used with an EPA approved method and reagent. The TOGS system TM has been used by the United Nation for a emergency relief project in the Dominican Republic. A verification study by Michigan State University, an EPA laboratory, is ongoing for viruses. Further verification and validation studies will be done shortly by users and ETV (Environmental Technology Verification) for microbial quantification for beach and wastewater applications.

The company holds worldwide patents on the TOGS 3000 and 9000.
