CardioGenics Provides Update on Agreement with Merck Chimie for Its Silver Coated Paramagnetic Beads
Date:11/24/2009

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, Nov. 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CardioGenics Holdings Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CGNH), a developer of technology and products targeting the immunoassay segment of the IVD testing market, reports that Merck Chimie S.A.S. ("Merck Chimie") is progressing to the next phase of the commercialization of CardioGenics' proprietary silver coated paramagnetic Beads ("Beads").

Per the agreement with Merck Chimie that was executed earlier this year, CardioGenics supplied Merck Chimie with its proprietary silver coated paramagnetic beads for polymer encapsulation by Merck Chimie using their proprietary polymer process. Merck Chimie has informed CardioGenics that its proprietary encapsulation of the Beads was successful and that they will start shipping the encapsulated Beads to CardioGenics for testing in December. CardioGenics intends to meet with Merck Chimie in early 2010 to examine the test results against Merck Chimie's predetermined quality specifications for the encapsulated Beads. Merck Chimie has also informed CardioGenics that, once the predetermined quality specifications for the encapsulated Beads are met, it will scale-up its production of the final encapsulated Beads to "commercial lots," in preparation for product launch. As part of the agreement, Merck Chimie will be responsible for all marketing and commercialization costs, with CardioGenics receiving 30% of the proceeds of sales.

Dr. Yahia Gawad, Chief Executive Officer, commented: "The implementation of our agreement with Merck Chimie is going smoothly, and we anticipate announcing a commercialization plan shortly after we review the test results early next year. Initiating commercialization of the Beads encapsulated by Merck Chimie will provide CardioGenics with a revenue stream that will strengthen our balance sheet."

"This is a significant development for our company and shareholders and we are encouraged to be working with Merck Chimie, the leading distributor of paramagnetic beads to the in vitro diagnostic market," concluded Dr. Gawad.
