TORONTO, Jan. 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pursuant to its news release of August 07, 2014, Gemoscan Canada, Inc. (TSX-V:GES) (MUN:1GE) ("Gemoscan" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce that it has established a wholly owned subsidiary, Hemocode USA, Inc., ("HUI") through which to sell and market its HemocodeTM and other leading food sensitivity management programs. HUI has been set up under the laws of the state of Delaware.

In addition, Gemoscan is pleased to announce that one of its key valued added resellers has, through a convertible debenture issued by HUI, taken an option to acquire a minority interest in HUI.

Dr. Brian Wolfs D.C., a principal of the entity that provided the initial financing to HUI, has been appointed as a director of HUI and has been granted 200,000 options in the Company priced at $0.05 per share for a period of five years.

The HemocodeTM System, like the Company's other programs, is a personalized medically supervised nutritional program that promotes dietary well being. It uses portions of Gemoscan's patented technology, and proprietary services to provide consultation and recommendations intended to simplify the management of food sensitivities. Today, HemocodeTM is offered by over 600 pharmacies and medical clinics across Canada as a complementary medical choice. The Company's food sensitivity management programs are used as adjuncts in conventional and complementary medical practices, incorporating modalities and therapies that focus on lifestyle and wellness. A statistically significant base of practitioners and those engaging with HemocodeTM have reported improved dietary and overall wellness satisfaction.

Gemoscan expects that HemocodeTM will now be available in select U.S markets during the first quarter of 2015.
