Intelligent Bio Solutions Scales Reach Throughout Asia-Pacific Region with Addition of Sales Team in Australia, New Distribution Hub and Office Facility
Company secures new distribution and office facility to scale distribution of its Intelligent Fingerprinting Drug Screening System and significantly expand its capacity to service customers
NEW YORK, May 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intelligent Bio Solutions Inc. (Nasdaq: INBS) (“INBS” or the “Company”), a medical technology company delivering intelligent, rapid, non-invasive testing solutions, today announced the recruitment of four highly experienced sales executives from across the workplace safety and supply, manufacturing, and the drugs and alcohol testing industries for its new sales force in Australia. These skilled professionals will support the Company’s efforts to scale access to its Intelligent Fingerprinting Drug Screening System throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
In addition, INBS has secured a new distribution hub and office facility to manage sales and operations, significantly expanding its ability to service customers throughout the region.
Substance abuse is a growing concern for Australian employers, with recent studies showing an estimated 2.5 million days lost annually due to drug and alcohol abuse1. This costs Australian workplaces around A$6 billion per year in lost productivity2 and presents a large market opportunity for INBS to provide convenient testing solutions to workplaces.
Harry Simeonidis, President and CEO of Intelligent Bio Solutions, commented, “Given the alarming statistics concerning substance abuse, employers and Human Resources teams need to prioritize workplace safety and keep it at the forefront of their minds. This next phase of our growth strategy is about expanding the reach of our revolutionary drug screening system and helping organizations throughout the Asia-Pacific region reduce risk, prevent workplace accidents and improve employee performance.”
The Intelligent Fingerprinting Drug Screening System, designed and manufactured in the United Kingdom, combats substance abuse in the workplace using a non-invasive, rapid and dignified approach that provides drug screening support wherever and whenever needed. The system comprises a small, tamper-evident drug screening cartridge onto which ten fingertip sweat samples are collected in under a minute before the portable DSR-Plus reader provides an on-screen result in less than ten minutes. The system can be used in-house and screens the sweat for recent drug use, including cannabis, cocaine, opiates, and methamphetamine.
“This is certainly a pivotal time for INBS as we expand our global presence and further cement our position as a leader in the non-invasive testing market,” continued Mr. Simeonidis. “We welcome our new Australian sales team whose combined experience and talents will play a critical role in helping to drive our market penetration throughout the Asia-Pacific.”
