Date:7/26/2012

WHITE CITY, Ore., July 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BioMed Diagnostics, Inc., an innovative manufacturer of microbiology devices that facilitate and enhance infectious disease diagnosis, today announced its patented InTray™ and InPouch™ product lines will now be available worldwide through a new agreement with VWR International, LLC, a global laboratory supply and distribution company with 2011 worldwide sales in excess of $4.1 billion. Under the terms of the agreement, VWR will distribute BioMed's products for the diagnosis of infectious disease.

InTray and InPouch devices uniquely combine sample collection, transport, and culture in a single read-out ready platform, thereby reducing handling, increasing productivity, improving throughput and reducing the risk of sample exposure and contamination.

"The productivity and accuracy advantages of InTray and InPouch have won these tests a growing customer base over the past few years. We are delighted that distribution leader VWR will now extend our reach to its extensive customer base so more healthcare providers around the globe will have access to these unique products," said Jim Self, Chief Executive Officer of BioMed Diagnostics.

"BioMed's one-step collection, transport, incubation and observation devices are a simple yet elegant solution for point-of-care infectious disease diagnosis," noted Steve Goodman, Senior Vice President of Category Management for VWR. "The initial response to these products has been excellent and we look forward to making them available globally to the many labs and facilities that can benefit from their use."

BioMed's InPouch product is an easy-to-use, fully enclosed oxygen-resistant plastic pouch for microbiology sample collection, transport, culture and observation. Once the sample has been inoculated, the InPouch is sealed against contamination. The optically clear InPouch can be directly viewed under the microscope without the need to prepare a wet mount slide. InPouch offers a variety of proprietary media that deliver high specificity and selectivity and has a long shelf life of up to one year. InPouch is also compatible for use with PCR.

BioMed's InTray product is a fully enclosed cassette for microbiology sample collection, transport and culture. This stackable device can be observed under a microscope through optically clear plastic, eliminating the need to prepare a wet mount slide. The fully enclosed system features controlled air exchange to protect against exposure or contamination, and is ideal for field use or austere environments. InTray products featuring proprietary Colorex™ technology produce easy-to-interpret results that can be read visually via color changes in the sample.
