Covidien Announces New Source of Vital Medical Isotopes
Date:2/17/2010

on">Krzysztof Wieteska, Director of IAE POLATOM.

The agreement is the most recent example of steps the Company has taken to actively manage the current medical isotope shortage. Since early 2009, Covidien has:

    - Actively supported additional Mo 99 production cycles and an increase
    in the number of targets at Belgium's BR2 reactor during the shutdown of
    the HFR in the Netherlands.

    - Increased the production of potential alternative, clinically
    appropriate medical isotopes, such as thallium Tl 201.

    - Communicated frequently and directly with nuclear medicine providers
    about the supply challenge, providing detailed monthly calendars
    projecting the availability of Tc 99m generators on a daily basis.

    - Published these calendars and supply updates on a public website:
    http://www.covidien.com/Mo99supply.

    - Encouraged clinicians to be more efficient in scheduling procedures and
    ordering Tc 99m - based products to maximize the number of doses
    available to the greatest number of patients.

"This agreement with the IAE POLATOM will help us meet our short- and long-term needs for Molybdenum 99," said Wright. "We look forward to a productive relationship for the benefit of patients around the world."

NOTE TO MEDIA:

Covidien and IAE POLATOM will hold a press conference today beginning at 14:30 Central European Time (8:30 a.m. US ET) at the PAP Press Center in Warsaw, Poland.

It will be webcast and can be accessed at: http://www.
