MCJ
manufactures a product that is a non-invasive method to test individuals for fatigue and/or drug use. It can also be used to replace any test that would previously have required the withdrawal of blood from a person. The product is currently in use by law enforcement and medical facilities in more than ten countries. The firm's exports have grown from zero in 2004 to more than $7 million dollars in 2007.



Last year, the firm worked with the U.S. Department of Commerce to locate a distributor for them in the Nordic Region. Commerce offices in Sweden and Denmark combined efforts to assist the firm and identified the right firm that has now signed a major agreement to represent MCJ in the Nordic marketplace.
