BICO, Inc. Releases New Additional Features From MobiClear

DOVE CANYON, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 18, 2006 -- BICO, Inc. (OTCBB: BICN) announced today that the company releases three new additional features to the MobiClear core products. MobiClear Ltd. is a wholly owned subsidiary of BICO. BICO actively trades on the NASD Over the Counter Bulletin Board under the ticker symbol, BICN.

The MobiClear core products make identity theft virtually impossible by securing consumers' credit/debit card purchases using the consumer's own mobile phone. The new additional features include:

--  Usage Control which gives the credit card owner even more control by
    making it possible to activate his or her credit card when it is used and
    deactivate it when it is not used.
--  Limit Control which allows the credit card owner to set a spending
    limit on his or her credit card.
--  3G Video Call which allows the credit card owner to access his or her
    credit card provider's internet and telephone services via a 3G video call.
Mr. John Clarke, newly appointed Managing Director of MobiClear Ltd., states, "We are very pleased to announce the immediate release of these new additional features supporting the MobiClear core products. This demonstrates how close we are to the market and our ability to quickly respond to market demands."

Mr. Clarke adds, "We see a strong demand globally, and specifically from the Asian market, to increase credit card control. Our new features do just that, they materially increase the level of control which credit card owners will have over their credit card."
