Date:7/16/2009

SHENZHEN, China, July 16 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Mindray Medical International Limited (NYSE: MR, the Company), a leading developer, manufacturer and marketer of medical devices worldwide, today announced updates on new product launches and GPO relationships for the first half of 2009.

In the first half of 2009, the Company released a total of five products, including four new products in their patient monitoring and life support line and an upgrade to one of their medical imaging products. A full description of the products is provided below.

Mindray also announced today that Mindray USA, which sells the Datascope brand of patient monitors as well as a newly introduced DPM brand of patient monitors re-engineered for the North American market, has expanded its GPO contact base.

"We are very pleased with the progress we have made with our product development and GPO relationships," commented Mr. Xu Hang, Mindray's chairman and co-chief executive officer. "Earlier in the year we announced that we plan to launch seven to nine new products in 2009 and we are well on target for achieving that goal. Additionally, the DPM product line has now been added to contracts in five of the largest GPO's. This provides contracted access to this product line for over 85% of the U.S. hospitals and surgery centers. We will continue to seek to expand our distribution platforms and rapidly bring new high-quality and low-cost products to market while generating new revenue streams in an increasingly price-competitive medical device market."
