Date:9/21/2012

INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Polymer Technology Systems, Inc. (PTS), the U.S.-based manufacturer of the CardioChek family of point-of-care diagnostic products, announced today that HEART UK has accepted CardioChek as the point-of-care system for lipid testing in a nationwide health screening program. HEART UK, the United Kingdom's (cholesterol) charity, works with the public and healthcare professionals to promote healthier lifestyles. HEART UK's acceptance of CardioChek as a screening tool is a significant milestone, as PTS continues to expand its presence in global markets.

The CardioChek test system provides on-site lipid panel screening tests and delivers readings for total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL (calculated), and glucose in less than two minutes. CardioChek is represented in the UK by BHR Pharmaceuticals Ltd., a specialty distributor of point-of-care medical diagnostics.

Andrew Greaves, Sales Director for BHR, said he is delighted that HEART UK has approved CardioChek as a screening tool in the national "Health-Check" program, and he is confident that HEART UK's acknowledgment will generate great interest within primary care organizations. Greaves continued, "As the Department of Health (UK) positions for greater awareness of the 'Health-Check' program, the drive to reduce the incidence of heart disease, and the need for reliable lipid testing in primary care, grows."

Robert Huffstodt, President and CEO of PTS, Inc. said, "We are honored by this important acknowledgement by HEART UK. Their organization is very much respected for the work they do in cholesterol awareness and testing, and HEART UK's recognition of the CardioChek system as a useful point-of-care screening tool is significant to our organization. With HEART UK's dedication to healthcare and our proficiency in providing fast, reliable test results, I am confident our partnership will effectively detect and help to moderate the risk factors for heart disease in the United Kingdom."
