Date:5/14/2009

Martek Biosciences Corporation announced today that it has entered into a multi-year, sole-source supply agreement with Lactalis Nutrition Sante for the use of life'sARA™ in infant formulas and growing-up milks produced by Lactalis and sold in France and Algeria.

Columbia, MD (Vocus) May 14, 2009 - Martek Biosciences Corporation (NASDAQ: MATK) announced today that it has entered into a multi-year, sole-source supply agreement with Lactalis Nutrition Sante for the use of life'sARA™ in infant formulas and growing-up milks produced by Lactalis and sold in France and Algeria.

"Our partnership with Lactalis further demonstrates that companies worldwide understand the importance of adding Martek's ARA to infant formula for infant health and development," said Ethan Leonard, vice president of pediatric nutrition for Martek. "Martek's DHA and ARA can be found in infant formula sold in more than 75 countries, and we continue to expand our international presence in the infant formula market."

Naturally present in human breast milk, ARA (arachidonic acid) is a fatty acid important to infant development and growth. Clinical studies have demonstrated numerous benefits, including improved mental and visual development, for infants receiving infant formula supplemented with ARA and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), another fatty acid important to infant development. Martek's blend of DHA and ARA, life'sDHA & life'sARA™, is the only source of these nutrients currently used in U.S. infant formula, and is present in more than 95 percent of infant formula sold in the U.S. Additionally, Martek is a leading global supplier of DHA and ARA and infant formulas containing Martek's nutritional oils are available in more than 75 countries worldwide.

Lactalis Nutrition Sante, a French company with a presence in over 40 countries, specializes in nutritional products in five areas: infant nutrition, oral clinical nutrition, enteral clinical nutrition, metabolic diseases, and gluten-free and allergen-free products.

Martek Biosciences Corporation is a leader in the innovation and development of DHA and ARA and has developed patented technology for the production and use of these ingredients. DHA omega-3 products promote health and wellness through every stage of life and ARA omega-6 products support growth and development in infants and children. The company produces life'sDHA™, a sustainable vegetarian source of DHA omega-3, for use in foods, beverages, infant formula and supplements, and life'sARA™, a sustainable vegetarian source of ARA omega-6, for use in infant formula and growing up milks.
