LONDON, February 2, 2011 - Trimega Laboratories, the leading hair alcohol and drug testing company,
is to be one of a few Manchester businesses in the life science sector to
promote their success on the European stage to encourage further investment
in the city.

On Wednesday 2 February, Trimega will host 10 journalists from across
Europe as part of an initiative organised jointly by the UK Trade and
Investment department (UKTI) and Manchester's Investment and Development
Agency (MIDAS). The aim of the visit is to promote the life science sector
and is being used as an opportunity for select companies within Manchester to
highlight their expertise and the city as a business destination.

Journalists from Austria, France, Norway, Portugal and Switzerland will
take part in the visit.

UKTI Regional Director Clive Drinkwater said:

"This visit will give us the opportunity to showcase the excellent work
taking place in Manchester to the whole of Europe. Manchester hosts some of
the most exceptional and truly innovative life science companies in Europe,
that are at the forefront of pharmaceutical research and development and
pioneering technology helping to improve the quality of people's lives.

"By showing the group of journalists this work we are able to shout about
our success across Europe and attract further investment into the country to
help our economy to grow."

Avi Lasarow, CEO of Trimega, said:

"Manchester is without doubt one of the foremost life science hubs in
Europe. Trimega's advances in hair testing are but one of the many
pharmaceutical achievements that Manchester can lay claim to, and I think it
will be incredibly useful from an investment perspective for the rest of
Europe to hear what the city has accomplished."
