Company's DSU Products offer biologically safe water through point-of-use

ultrafiltration

NEW YORK, June 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Nephros, Inc., a medical device company, announced today that it will be exhibiting its Dual Stage Ultrafilter products at the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) conference in Denver, Colorado, June 15th-19th, 2008. Building on the success of the Nephros online hemodiafiltration technology, the Nephros Dual Stage Ultrafilter (DSU) delivers water free of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other biologically hazardous elements. The Company believes the DSU can be an important addition to the hospital's arsenal in addressing water-borne hospital acquired infection (HAI) risks, and therefore help to reduce infection-related hospital costs and liability associated with prolonged hospital stays, additional care requirements, and patient mortality.

HAIs of all types are a significant problem in the U.S. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are over 2 million HAIs annually in the U.S., resulting in an estimated $30.5 billion in additional healthcare costs and over 100,000 in-hospital deaths. The federal Medicare program recently announced that, beginning in October 2008, it will no longer pay extra costs associated with certain types of HAIs. A variety of pathogens survives and even thrives in hospital plumbing systems despite chemical and heat-based treatments designed to eradicate them. Waterborne microbes can shelter certain pathogens and transport them to locations throughout a hospital's water system.

"Our Dual Stage Ultrafilter is designed with a fail-safe feature, offering biologically pure water with extremely high reliability. "We believe that, when addressing water-borne HAIs, hospitals will seek a product that both has the biological stopping power to protect patients, and is convenient and cost-effective.
