Response Biomedical Announces Launch of RAMP(R) Technology in 3M(TM) Rapid Detection Flu A+B Test at ICAAC/IDSA Conference
Date:10/30/2008

VANCOUVER, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Response Biomedical Corporation (TSX: RBM, OTCBB: RPBIF) announces the debut of its RAMP(R) technology in the 3M(TM) Rapid Detection Flu A+B Test at the 48th Annual ICAAC(R)/IDSA 46th Annual Meeting in Washington D.C., officially launching the RAMP(R) Influenza A/B Assay in the United States. The test is branded by 3M as the 3M(TM) Rapid Detection Flu A+B Test. This rapid flu test provides hospital and physician office laboratories reliable and objective electronic results in approximately 15 minutes and in a clinical study has been shown to be more sensitive for Influenza A and B than the leading hospital competitor, the BinaxNOW(R) Influenza A & B Test.(1)

"The 3M(TM) Rapid Detection Flu A+B Test, powered by the RAMP(R) technology, is the first major clinical test to be launched by a partner in the United States," said S. Wayne Kay, Chief Executive Officer. "It is further evidence of the broad platform of the RAMP(R) technology that we have developed to meet the market needs of our partners, such as 3M, Roche Diagnostics and Shionogi. Besides the launch of the 3M product, we are excited about the introduction of our comprehensive cardiac line by Roche Diagnostics, expected in the first quarter of 2009."

Response Biomedical is currently working with its partners to identify further clinical applications in both infectious diseases and cardiac to add to the platforms of 3M and Roche. The Company is also meeting with other potential partners to discuss the opportunity for further menu breadth expansion beyond infectious diseases and cardiac. The RAMP(R) System is establishing a new performance standard in rapid clinical infectious diseases and cardiovascular testing worldwide and there are many other clinical applications to be explored.
