ABMC Reports Second Quarter 2016 Results

KINDERHOOK, N.Y. - August 15, 2016 - American Bio Medica Corporation (OTCPK: ABMC) today announced financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016.

Chief Executive Officer Melissa A. Waterhouse stated, "New products and our ability to sell those products in new markets will be the primary future organic growth driver for ABMC and our efforts to that end continue, from both a manufacturing and regulatory perspective. The steps we have taken to diversify our revenues have resulted in minimal success to date, however, we only commenced sales efforts in the beginning of Q2 of this year. We remain hopeful that as the year progresses we will see a positive impact on sales. There continues to be opportunities in our pipeline that, if completed, will positively impact the top line and financial position of ABMC."
