American Scientific Resources Announces Thermofocus® Now Available

NEW PALTZ, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 3, 2006 -- American Scientific Resources (PINKSHEETS: ASFX) announced today that the Thermofocus clinical thermometer is now available in the U.S. via the company's website. The Thermofocus is the world's first totally ''non-contact" thermometer and has been marketed successfully for years in Europe and globally.

The Thermofocus will be the newest product in the Kidz-Med line of children's health and safety devices. The thermometer has patented infrared technology that allows a temperature to be taken without touching or waking a patient or sleeping baby. The device is totally non-invasive and takes a temporal artery temperature at the forehead, which is a preferred site because of its source of blood flow directly from the head. The Thermofocus is accurate, immediate, and hygienic because it never touches the body.

Kidz-Med also markets and distributes other products in the brand line that includes the Kidz-Med TeddyCam™, a high tech wireless nanny-watch system: Kidz-Med Medicine Dispenser, the Portable Ultrasonic Nebulizer, the Kidz-Med WhistleWatch, and the Kidz-Med Scald Safe.
