UV Flu Technologies Announces Placement of ViraTech UV-400 Air Purifiers at Major Boston Hospitals

CENTERVILLE, MA--(Marketwire - June 16, 2010) -  UV Flu Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: UVFT) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company's UV-400 units have been in operation at two major Boston Hospitals, New England Baptist Hospital, and with the Division of Infectious Diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital, since April, with ongoing favorable responses and excellent feedback.

New England Baptist Hospital (NEBH) is an adult care medical/surgical hospital specializing in orthopedic care and complex orthopedic procedures. NEBH is an international leader in the treatment of all forms of musculoskeletal disorders and disease. Massachusetts General Hospital (Mass General or MGH) is a teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School and a biomedical research facility. It is ranked as one of the top five hospitals in the United States.

"These are two of the finest medical institutions in the world today," said Bill Fegley, President of Puravair, the distributor responsible for the introduction of the ViraTech UV-400 to the Boston medical market. He further stated, "Hospitals generally look for ways to stay ahead of the curve regarding the safety of their patients and staff. These two particular hospitals are well known for their proactive approach in this area. Given the UV-400's FDA clearance rating and lab test results which prove the unit kills over 99% of bacteria with every pass, how could any hospital not want to evaluate these units? We are thrilled with the feedback we're getting from both hospitals, both of which have stated that the hospital staff is noticing less coughing and respiratory symptoms within the first week of operation of the ViraTech units."

The Company plans to announce delivery and commercial availability of the newly updated product shortly. Those interested in the product, or wishing to pre-order are invited to contact the distributor, Puravair LLC, at 1-866-6-PURAVAIR or by email at info@puravair.com.

Further details regarding the Company's business, financial reports and agreements are filed as part of the Company's continuous public disclosure as a reporting issuer under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission's ("SEC") EDGAR database.
