CLX Medical, Inc. Issues November 2008 Newsletter Highlighting Pending Close of ThyroTest® Acquisition

MURRIETA, CA--(Marketwire - November 13, 2008) - CLX Medical, Inc. (OTCBB: CLXN), which is focused on the marketing and distribution of unique medical diagnostic testing products, today released its November 2008 investor newsletter, which highlights the pending close of the company's acquisition of ThyroTest® through the issuance of preferred stock and a note in the amount of $750,000. ThyroTest® is a rapid thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) screening device used for the detection of hypothyroidism in adults, a common thyroid disease.

ThyroTest® is FDA cleared and has also achieved CLIA waived status, so the test can be administered in the more than 100,000 CLIA waived doctors' offices in the U.S., as well as in any non-waived laboratory.

The newsletter reviews how CLX Medical entered into a definitive agreement with ThyroTec, LLC, the developer of the ThyroTest® device, to acquire ThyroTest® and has subsequently entered into an amendment to the definitive agreement. The amendment provides that the transaction can be closed through the issuance to ThyroTec of Series C Convertible Preferred Shares of CLX Medical and a note in the amount of $750,000 at 6% interest for a term of 30 months, secured by the assets of the corporation. During the period of the note or until the principal is paid in full, CLX agrees to pay to ThyroTec a royalty of 10% of net sales of the ThyroTest® product.

An escrow will be established, into which the technology, the $750,000 note and the 750,000 shares of Series C Preferred Shares will be deposited. The opening of the escrow will be considered the closing, which is expected to be completed by November 14, 2008.

Also included in the newsletter is an article reviewing an agreement with Kurt Kalm, an executive with over 30 years of international financial experience, to serve as interim chief financial officer of CLX Medical effective at the close of the company's acquisition of ThyroTest®.

Bleichroeder. His financial management employment includes with General Mills and Honeywell International.
