Amcare Labs, an Affiliate of Johns Hopkins Medicine International, and Biophysical Corporation Partner to Provide Biophysical250 Health Assessment to

Austin, Texas (PRWEB) September 17, 2007 -- Biophysical Corporation® announced today that it has partnered with Amcare Labs International, Inc., an affiliate of Johns Hopkins Medicine International, to offer the Biophysical250® health assessment at the Tokyo Midtown Medical Center in Tokyo, Japan. Tokyo Midtown Medical Center has exclusive rights in Japan to offer the Biophysical250 to their patients.

Biophysical Corporation''s Biophysical250 is an innovative health assessment that provides the single most comprehensive evaluation of an individual''s health available to date. Compared with standard physicals that typically only look at 20-40 biomarkers (proteins in the blood like glucose and cholesterol), Biophysical250 measures those same biomarkers, plus those used routinely by 12 different medical specialties, including cardiology, oncology and rheumatology, for a total of more than 250 different biomarkers. With a blood sample of approximately two tablespoons, the Biophysical250 provides an assessment that can help indicate the presence of certain diseases and medical conditions at their earliest stages, often before symptoms appear.

"We are delighted to work with innovators in the medical assessment field such as Biophysical Corporation and are pleased that the Biophysical250 will be used by the Tokyo Midtown Medical Center and available in Japan," said Mohan Chellappa, president of Amcare Labs International.

Amcare is in the business of helping clinical labs and medical facilities throughout the world define a new standard of excellence in global medicine by implementing the best laboratory and pathology technologies developed in the United States. Tokyo Midtown Medical Center recommends Biophysical250 to patients who want a comprehensive assessment of their health.

"Our mission is to provide the highest level of medical care in Japan," said Tetsuya Furukawa, president and COO of Tokyo Midtown Medical Center. "After months of careful evaluation we concluded that Biophysical250 is not only the best way to assess an individual''s current state of health, but also to track improvement. The results provide our physicians with a comprehensive biomarker analysis that serves as the scientific foundation for further tests that can ultimately lead to the earlier detection of potentially serious conditions and diseases and the development of more effective treatment plans. We are fortunate to have expert guidance from our international partners as we evaluate new medical technologies such as Biophysical250 to benefit our patients. "
