Date:6/29/2009

LYNBROOK, N.Y., June 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BioSpecifics Technologies Corp. (Nasdaq: BSTC), a biopharmaceutical company developing first in class collagenase-based products, announced today that it was added to the Russell 3000 and Russell 2000 Indexes effective at the close of the U.S. markets on June 29, 2009. The Russell family of U.S. indexes is reconstituted annually and is designed to be a comprehensive representation of the investable U.S. equity market.

The Russell 3000 Index measures the performance of the largest 3000 U.S. companies representing approximately 98 percent of the investable U.S. equity market. Membership in the Russell 3000 Index results in automatic inclusion in either the large-cap Russell 1000 Index or the widely used small-cap Russell 2000. The Russell 2000 includes approximately 2000 of the smallest securities based on a combination of their market cap and current index membership and is constructed to represent a true small-cap opportunity set.

Russell indexes are widely used by fund managers for index funds and as benchmarks for both passive and active investment strategies.
