IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/11/14 -- Biomerica, Inc. (OTCBB: BMRA) announced today it will supply its EZ Detect colorectal screening test to a multinational pharmaceutical company that has over $40 billion in revenues and over 70,000 employees worldwide. The EZ Detect product will be sold and marketed by the pharmaceutical company in one European country with the possibility of expanding into multiple other countries throughout Europe. The same pharmaceutical company currently distributes two other Biomerica point of care tests and the colorectal screening test is a new addition to the line. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed and will remain confidential.
Biomerica's patented colorectal screening test (EZ Detect) is the simplest at home test available to detect fecal occult (hidden) blood, an early warning sign of colorectal cancer. EZ Detect is the only FDA cleared test that does not require handling of stool or have dietary restrictions. The EZ Detect pad is tossed into the toilet after a bowel movement. A change in the pad's color to blue/green, which would appear within two minutes, indicates the presence of blood in the stool. The pad is then simply flushed.
"We are very pleased to expand our relationship with our partner," said Zackary Irani, CEO Biomerica. "Their extensive marketing and distribution capabilities open up significant opportunities for our products."
