WayPoint Biomedical Holdings, Inc. Launches Their New Health Essist Interactive Website and Expands Retail Network

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - November 5, 2007) - WayPoint Biomedical Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: WYPH) is proud to announce the launch of their new Health Essist® interactive e-commerce website. The new domain name is www.patch-me-in.com. The Company has also begun the process of introducing their Topical Patch product line into new retail market sectors, in addition to the Convenience Store trade.

The Health Essist products currently available for on-line purchases include, the Health Essist Hangover-Free Patch, and the recently introduced, Health Essist Energy-Boost Power Patch™. Both products may be ordered using the new secure on-line website. Web viewers can also see information on our proposed new Travel-Guard Patch, scheduled for introduction before year end. In addition to end-user consumers, both retail stores and authorized wholesale distributors have the ability to purchase products through the secure website, once they have met the protected submission, screening and approval requirements.

Health Essist VP of Sales & Marketing, Phill Richer, states, "We are very pleased to launch our new interactive site, which will allow all levels of trade to purchase our products using a secure website." Richer adds, "We expect www.patch-me-in.com to be a valuable tool for creating revenues at all levels, along with disseminating important product information to the public, and enabling retailers to locate local participating wholesale distributors, such as McLane Company, for purchases."

The Company has also taken steps to expand the Health Essist range into other market sectors. WayPoint no longer retains TNT Marketing as their brokerage group into the C-Store trade, and the Company has secured more regionalized representation, targeting multiple retail markets.
