professor at Carnegie Mellon University's Heinz School of Public Policy

and Management;

Founder, ProGene Biomedical, Inc. (dba IBT Laboratories);

-- Mr. Steven A. Mock, CPA -- Partner, BKD, LLP;

-- Mr. Thomas Reidy; and

-- Mr. Clint Severson -- Chairman, President and CEO of Abaxis, Inc.

According to Irish Law, Trinity Biotech must call a special meeting of shareholders, called an Extraordinary General Meeting, if the meeting is requested by shareholders holding in excess of 10% of the voting paid-up capital of the company.

The purpose of the conference call will be to provide Trinity Biotech shareholders information regarding the reasons for the proposal, the company's response to the proposal, if any, the qualifications of the replacement directors, and steps that shareholders can take to impose accountability on company management.
