Corgenix to Exhibit AspirinWorks(R) Test at 2009 ISTH Meeting
Date:7/9/2009

DENVER, July 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Corgenix Medical Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: CONX), a worldwide developer and marketer of diagnostic test kits, will be exhibiting its AspirinWorks(R) Test at the XXII Congress and the 55th Meeting of the Scientific and Standardization Committee of the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH). The ISTH 2009 conference is being held July 11-16 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.

Corgenix representatives will be on-hand in booth No. 909 during ISTH to discuss the latest supporting clinical data on the AspirinWorks Test and to answer questions about Corgenix' full line of diagnostic tests.

AspirinWorks is a simple urine test that determines the effect of aspirin on platelets by measuring the level of thromboxane production (aspirin's target). The higher the levels of thromboxane, the stickier the blood platelets and the less impact the aspirin is having. This crucial information may allow physicians to individualize a patient's therapy.

Unlike other platelet tests, which require freshly drawn blood that must be evaluated within at least four hours, the AspirinWorks Test requires only a random urine sample that can be obtained in any doctor's office or patient service center, making the test easy for both the physician and patient.

"Our participation in the ISTH conference marks an excellent opportunity for Corgenix to discuss the importance of accurately testing for individual aspirin response in an international arena," said Corgenix' Clinical Affairs Director Gordon Ens.

The AspirinWorks Test, which was launched in the United States in June 2007 following FDA 510(k) clearance, is now available nationwide through major medical reference laboratories as well as direct to consumers through HealthCheckUSA (www.HealthCheckUSA.com).

The AspirinWorks Test Kit is an enzyme-linked immunoassay (ELISA) to determine levels of 11dehydro Thromboxane B2 (11dhTxB2) in human urine, which aids in the qualitative detection of aspirin effect in apparently healthy individuals post ingestion. The test targets a potential U.S. market of over 60 million individuals and a potential global market exceeding 200 million individuals who take aspirin regularly.

Physicians and laboratories interested in ordering the test can call 1-800-729-5661 x180, or e-mail: info@aspirinworks.com. More information is also available at www.aspirinworks.com. It is important that individuals taking aspirin to lower the risk of a heart attack or stroke consult a physician to determine what dose, frequency and type of aspirin is appropriate for them to achieve the most benefit with the fewest side effects.
