LAPEX 2000 LipoLaser Gaining Attention With Canadian News Media

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 7, 2008) - Meridian Co., Ltd. (OTCBB:MRDAF) -

Recently approved for safe and effective fat reduction by Health Canada, the LAPEX 2000 LipoLaser (or LipoLaser) is gathering positive feedback from national Canadian news outlets as well as the Canadian medical and aesthetics markets.

"The LipoLaser is truly an amazing product for measurable inch loss and spot fat reduction," states Anna Brazier, President of Meridian Medical Inc., the exclusive North American distributor for the LipoLaser. "I am pleased that Canadians now have the option of a non-invasive procedure that can be used as a stand alone treatment or to enhance any diet or weight loss program that they may be considering."

On December 27th, The Globe and Mail featured an article entitled "Zapping Away the Fat" that discussed the benefits of the LipoLaser versus more invasive and life threatening fat reduction procedures such as liposuction. The complete article can be viewed at: http://www.meridianmedical.ca/site/news/NR122707.pdf.

More recently, the LipoLaser was featured on CKNW NewsTalk 980 with Dr. Jonas LaForge, Naturopathic Physician and Meridian Medical Inc.'s Director of Medical Sales. A LipoLaser patient who has successfully lost four inches off her abdominal area was also featured on the show.

This month, the LipoLaser will also be highlighted in a seven page spread in Spa Canada Magazine which produces six issues per year and is distributed to 12,000 medi-spas and individual trade professionals nationwide.

Meridian Co., Ltd. and Meridian Medical Inc. are working together to spread the great news about the health and wellness benefits of LipoLaser throughout Canada and look forward to other media launches throughout the globe.
