Date:6/2/2008

TORONTO, June 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Spectral Diagnostics Inc. (TSX: SDI) today announced that data demonstrating the clinical utility of its EAA(TM) Endotoxin Activity Assay in combination with Toray Medical's therapeutic column, Toraymyxin, was presented at the Practical Aspects of Extracorporeal Blood Purification in Intensive Care Medicine, 6th Annual Conference held in Moscow, Russia from May 28th-30th.

Dr. Alexander Romaschin, Head of Clinical Biochemistry at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto and Associate Professor in the Department of Lab Medicine and Department of Surgery at University of Toronto, presented on the effectiveness of sepsis patient management with the use of the combination of Spectral's EAA(TM) assay, the only FDA cleared diagnostic for the measurement of endotoxin, and the Toraymyxin(TM) column, which removes endotoxin from the bloodstream. Dr. Romaschin's presentation was entitled "Diagnostic and Prognostic Implications of Endotoxemia based on Measurements Using the Endotoxin Activity Assay". In addition, Dr. Hisataka Shoji presented data from the Japanese experience using the EAA/Toraymyxin combination.

"There was great enthusiasm for this approach to managing sepsis patients from this prestigious audience of medical doctors from across Russia," said Rob Verhagen, Vice President, Business Development of Spectral. Spectral recently announced that it has expanded its collaboration agreement with Toray to include Russia.

"Dr. Romaschin's data reaffirms the clinical utility of EAA(TM) in combination with extracorporeal blood purification devices, such as Toraymyxin(TM). This combination is gaining increasing recognition and acceptance globally as an effective way to diagnose, treat and monitor patients with endotoxemia," added Dr. Paul Walker, President and CEO of Spectral.
