Date:6/9/2009

SAN DIEGO, June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Accumetrics, Inc. announces today it has signed new distribution agreements for its VerifyNow(R) System in both Israel and Cyprus. Medtechnica, Ltd. will oversee distribution of all VerifyNow products in Israel, while Z.S. Curemed, Ltd. will be the sole distribution channel in Cyprus. These distribution agreements continue to expand Accumetrics' reach in both scope and geography, and add to the growing numbers of countries outside of the United States and Europe where physicians have access to the VerifyNow System.

The VerifyNow System assesses response to antiplatelet therapies, such as aspirin, Plavix(R) and GP IIb/IIIa inhibitors. As response to these drugs varies, the tests help physicians ensure their patients on antiplatelet medications are receiving the optimal benefit.

"We're extremely excited to see distribution of our VerifyNow System reach Israel and Cyprus. We have chosen these partners based on their demonstrated expertise and knowledge of our markets in their respective territories," said Timothy I. Still, President and CEO of Accumetrics. "These partnerships continue to emphasize our focus on expanding our global distribution channels, and support our vision of providing physicians worldwide access to critical information for managing their cardiovascular patients on antiplatelet therapies."
