Flexpoint Receives Purchase Order for Medical Device Used in Procedure Performed Millions of Times Annually
Date:5/14/2012

DRAPER, Utah, May 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Flexpoint Sensor Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: FLXT) http://www.flexpoint.com, a leader in design and supply of thin film sensing technology, announced today that they have received a purchase order for the a disposable colonoscope device.

The purchase order will advance the development of a disposable directional positioning sensor for colonoscopes and follows the successful testing of the original prototypes. Annual demand for colonoscopy ranges from 2.21 to 7.96 million procedures in the United States, according to an article published in MedScape Today magazine. One of the difficulties with the procedure is providing an inexpensive means of locating the exact position of the colonoscopes.  With the use of a sensor array and monitoring equipment it appears to be possible to locate the positioning of the colonoscopes. 

"In March, we announced we were working on developing this product and have now advanced to the stage of receiving a purchase order for working prototypes of this product," said Flexpoint President Clark Mower. "The development to date shows significant promise and this purchase order is an advancement of the early prototype development and testing stage. Prior work on this technology has gone well and the client is anxious to move the development, testing and approval process along as quickly as possible.  Since it is a medical application, it will have to go through a rigorous testing process before final approvals are received.  Assuming the testing and approval process occurs as anticipated; this product could gain wide scale usage as early as the second half of 2013 and be used in a high percentage of all colonoscopies." 

Mower continued, "I also want to provide more clarity on our May 9th announcement.  We are currently working with a major truck manufacturer.  They are currently distributing RFQ's to Tier 1
