Date:10/4/2011

MILFORD, Mass., Oct. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- PLC Systems Inc. (OTCBB: PLCSF), a company focused on innovative medical device technologies, today announced that it had signed an agreement with ACIST Medical Systems, Inc., a Bracco Group company,  to distribute its innovative RenalGuard System™ in France and Germany.

Under the terms of the agreement, ACIST will be the exclusive distributor of PLC's RenalGuard® in the two largest countries in the European Union, expanding RenalGuard's distribution significantly in Europe, where PLC has secured the CE Mark for its RenalGuard device. As part of the agreement, ACIST will purchase an initial stocking order of RenalGuard consoles and single use sets.

"Today's news is a critical catalyst to enable PLC to expand the use of RenalGuard in the largest countries in Europe," said Mark R. Tauscher, President and Chief Executive Officer of PLC Systems. "ACIST brings enormous credibility to our effort to increase the number of patients who can access RenalGuard.  We're confident that in partnership with them, we'll be able to reach many more hospitals and healthcare institutions to allow clinicians to utilize RenalGuard to protect patients."

Recent positive scientific data from investigator-sponsored clinical trials of RenalGuard in Europe have been presented at major international medical conferences and published in peer-reviewed journals.  The results from these trials showed that RenalGuard is superior to the current standard of care in preventing Contrast-Induced Nephropathy (CIN), a potentially fatal injury to the kidney that occurs when at-risk patients undergo certain imaging procedures. More than 15% of the patients in the more than 7 million imaging procedures conducted worldwide each year are considered at-risk of acquiring CIN, based upon their age and other criteria.

The development of CIN has been found to lead to a range of serious and potentially deadly
