Today’s news follows the March 2013 appointment of the company’s new CEO Mr. Lawrence Cohen and the May 2013 FDA market clearance of the company’s next generation BreathID technology in the U.S.
“Exalenz is gearing up for the quickly approaching market launch of the new generation BreathID Hp. Part of this means expanding our marketing and business development team. We warmly welcome Ted to the Exalenz family. We are certain that the company will greatly benefit from his clear vision, outstanding guidance and many years of industry success,” said Exalenz CEO Mr. Lawrence Cohen.
Mr. Foltyn is a mentor at the University of Delaware’s National Science Foundation, Innovation Corps Program and the former senior director of sales and marketing at Johnson and Johnson, where he managed a $12MM annual budget and led among other successful initiatives, the commercialization effort for VERV®, a first-to-market neuromodulation device.

About Exalenz Bioscience
Exalenz Bioscience develops medical equipment that uses the breath to diagnose and help manage digestive system and liver conditions by identifying the presence of the H. pylori bacteria, the cause of various illnesses. To date, blood tests or stool samples have been used to detect the same, in uncomfortable procedures which have limited accuracy and which require days to secure results. The company’s flagship product, the BreathID, is patient and technician friendly, provides results in a matter of minutes, and is clinically proven to be extremely accurate. Unlike the competition, the BreathID takes continuous samples of breath and operation is as simple as pushing one button. The BreathID system is FDA cleared and has a CE mark.
