Date:9/15/2009

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Accumetrics, Inc. announces today it has signed a new exclusive agreement with Endotech SPA for distribution of its VerifyNow(R) System in Italy. With the addition of Endotech to Accumetrics' growing number of distribution partners, Accumetrics now has local representation in 25 countries in Europe, Latin America and Asia / Pacific.

The VerifyNow System helps physicians assess patients' response to life-saving antiplatelet therapies, such as aspirin, Plavix(R), Effient (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 pleased that Endotech will now oversee the Italian distribution of our VerifyNow System. The company's knowledge of the cardiology market in Italy is unparalleled," said Timothy I. Still, President and CEO of the Company. "Physicians worldwide have a need for the critical information that is provided by the VerifyNow System. We are enthusiastic about Endotech's ability to bring our value to the Italian market."

"We have already experienced significant interest in the VerifyNow System and look forward to the continued growth of our relationship with Accumetrics in the Italian market," said Aldo Pagani, President and CEO of Endotech SPA. "We believe that our understanding of the value the VerifyNow System brings to physicians coupled with our expertise in marketing and sales strategy in Italy will be the key to our mutual success."
