Biomerica Introduces a New 15 Minute Home Test for Allergies to Cats and Receives CE Mark Approval for Home Use
Date:12/18/2007

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Dec. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Biomerica, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BMRA) has introduced a new 15 minute home test for allergies to cats and announced that it received CE mark approval to market and sell the product directly to consumers through drug stores in the European Union. The product will be marketed under the Fortel(R) Cat allergy test brand.

Approximately 10 million people in the U.S. are allergic to cat dander, the most common pet allergy. Cat allergies are about twice as common as dog allergies. Each year, allergies account for more than 17 million outpatient office visits in the United States. The annual cost of allergies is estimated to be nearly $7 billion. Allergy is the 5th leading chronic disease in the U.S. among all ages, and the 3rd most common chronic disease among children under 18 years old.

"Consumers will now be able to screen for allergies to cats in the privacy of their own home. The CE regulatory approval allows us to sell our product to drugstores and other retailers throughout Europe," said Zackary Irani, CEO of Biomerica. "We are entering into discussions with several distributors in various European countries."

Biomerica's Fortel Cat allergy test utilizes an advanced technology that requires only a drop of a person's blood with results in 15 minutes. The Fortel(R) Cat Allergy Test is a part of Biomerica's line of easy to use tests designed to detect diseases before they become catastrophic, incurable or costly to treat.
