Date:3/19/2009

- EPA Exercises Option to Extend Contract with Caliper -

HOPKINTON, Mass., March 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Caliper Life Sciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: CALP), a leading provider of tools and services for drug discovery and life sciences research, today announced that the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) presented initial analyses of Phase I data generated by Caliper Discovery Alliances and Services (CDAS) under the EPA's ToxCast(TM) screening program at the annual meeting of the Society of Toxicology (SOT) held this week in Baltimore, MD. Separately, the EPA notified Caliper that it has exercised the first additional option year under Caliper's ToxCast contract with the EPA. Task orders under this contract have already generated approximately $3.5 million in total revenues for Caliper since the initiation of the contract in April, 2007, $1.2 million of which was recognized in 2008.

"We are pleased with the preliminary findings presented by the EPA," said Kevin Hrusovsky, President and CEO of Caliper Life Sciences. "These results, coupled with the EPA's third year option exercise, reinforce the likelihood for Phase II efforts to begin at Caliper in the third quarter of this year, which supports our expectation of receiving approximately $3 million of service task orders under this contract in 2009."

Caliper works with the EPA under its ToxCast initiative to develop new in vitro (laboratory) approaches to identify chemicals that are potentially toxic to the environment. The initial phase of the EPA ToxCast program was aimed at creating a database of in vitro assay data on a broad set of compounds for which in vivo (animal) safety data already existed. Key goals for this phase were to assess overall data quality and establish that the database was predictive of in vivo toxicity profiles. Initial analyses
