Tulip BioMed, Inc. Announces Strategic Retention of Distribution Group With Extensive, Regional Distribution Network

Hippocrates Medical Solutions, Inc. Currently Distributes Products in California and the Northwestern Region of the Country Within the Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery Communities

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - November 5, 2007) - Tulip BioMed™, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: TPBM), a developer of disposable medical devices for the living tissues market, including plastic, cosmetic, and orthopedic surgeries, today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Hippocrates Medical Solutions, Inc. as the distributors for Tulip BioMed's disposable line of products for the Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Montana, Idaho, and California plastic and cosmetic surgery markets.

Hippocrates Medical Solutions is based in Portland, Oregon, and was founded by Tony Fernandez and Karyn May Fernandez. Currently they have seven independent sales agents. The founders have a strong foundation in both distribution and direct sales to the plastic and facial plastic/ear, nose and throat communities, having worked for large organizations such as Gyrus, Medtronic, Stryker Leibinger, Bard, and Biomet Microfixation.

"We founded Hippocrates Medical Solutions to fill unmet needs within the plastic surgery community, and we are very excited to add Tulip BioMed's disposable cannulas and accessories to the products that we distribute," stated Mr. Fernandez. "In our experience, we see the trend in this arena moving away from reusable products and towards disposable products, and Tulip BioMed fills this critical gap with their products," remarked Mrs. Fernandez.

"With our plastic surgery focus and relationships with doctors who perform these procedures, we are both very excited to form a distribution relationship with Tulip BioMed, and we believe that Hippocrates Medical Solutions will help ensure significant growth for Tulip BioMed in the years to come," concluded both Mr. & Mrs. Fernandez.

Dori K. Gavitt, Director of Sales and Marketing for Tulip BioMed, noted, "Direct marketing to our customers via the distribution network and the relationships that have been established by Hippocrates Medical Solutions should strengthen our ability to further enhance our growing sales. Not only are doctors becoming increasingly aware of our product lines, but they are also recognizing the benefits to their practice and to the results that they can achieve for their patients from our products. We are very excited about our relationship with Tony and Karyn and the Hippocrates Medical Solutions' team."

In addition to Tulip BioMed's products, Hippocrates Medical Solutions also sells the following products to plastic surgeons:
