BIOSAFE Anemia Club to Offer Low-Cost, At-Home Anemia Testing

LAKE FOREST, IL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 30, 2005 -- BIOSAFE Medical Technologies, Inc. announced today the formation of the BIOSAFE Anemia Club. The BIOSAFE Anemia Club will be chartered to provide the patented BIOSAFE Anemia Meter at reduced cost to patients needing frequent anemia testing. The BIOSAFE Anemia Meter is the first FDA-approved hand-held, disposable blood test for anemia detection. It produces an instant result as accurate as a standard laboratory analysis that is easy for the patient to understand.

The BIOSAFE Anemia Club will be operated by California-based HomeWellnessTests.com, an online distributor of BIOSAFE products serving the health needs of consumers as well as the special needs of persons requiring frequent testing. Membership in the BIOSAFE Anemia Club is free at www.homewellnesstests.com.

People with diabetes, HIV, certain cancers, and various other health-related issues need anemia testing on a frequent basis. "Membership in the BIOSAFE Anemia Club will help to eliminate the need for patients to set aside time, travel to a doctor's office, pay high doctor visit costs, and then wait hours or days for test results," said HomeWellnessTests.com President, Christopher H. Warner. "The test devices will be sent directly to the patient's home on a prearranged monthly schedule."

Anemia is a blood condition identified by a lower-than-normal number of red blood cells, usually measured by a decrease in the amount of hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is the red pigment in red blood cells that transports oxygen throughout the body. Risk factors for anemia include heavy menstrual periods, pregnancy and older age, as well as serious diseases that cause anemia such as chronic kidney disease, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and HIV.

"Our goal is to make it easier and less costly for persons suffering from Anemia to have convenient access to this quick, easy and reliable instant testing method," said BIOSAFE's President, David Fleisner.

BIOSAFE is best known for its trademark collection methods and patented blood transport systems. The BIOSAFE Anemia Meter is the first of a series of new products that produces an immediate or instant result.

BIOSAFE Medical Technologies, Inc. is a world leader in the development of micro blood sample testing technology. Located in Chicago, Illinois, BIOSAFE Laboratories, Inc. is a subsidiary of BIOSAFE Medical Technologies, Inc.
