Final Evaluations of Labguard™ Nearing Readiness for Market Launch

TAMPA, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 29, 2005 -- Southwestern Medical Solutions, Inc. (OTC: SWNM) is pleased to announce that, in collaboration with several independent laboratories, clinicians and physicians, the Company is rapidly approaching the product-launch milestone in the commercialization of its initial Labguard™ Diagnostic System unit.

SWNM Labguard™ Initial Unit Nears Completion

SWNM is currently fine tuning the sterilization and packaging processes of its diagnostic Labguard™ device and believes it is nearing completion of its clinical evaluation period. These final phases of sterile packaging (with IFU's -- instructions for use) and master packing will, when completed, allow sales of the promising Labguard™ to commence. During these final phases of readying the initial Labguard™ unit for launch, SWNM is working with hospitals and healthcare clinics to ensure that final packing will satisfy the need to maximize shelf-space efficiencies.

Gene Warner of S.T.A.T. Physicians supply company comments: "One trademark of this product that we are very much in favor of is its ability to utilize the least amount of shelf space. This, of course, is secondary to the fact that this unit clearly exceeds the performance of any other system out there and at a much reduced rate." Reduced shelf space coupled with an advanced design at a reduced price is expected to garner diagnostic testing market share rapidly for SWNM.

A Strong Market Reception Anticipated

The Labguard™ system represents a new generation of diagnostic testing that will greatly enhance the accuracy of the tests performed, the safety of the administrators, and reduce the ability of any tampering of specimens. SWNM is poised to bring this product to market through its many distributor alliances including international markets and OEM licensing of the product to two of the largest laboratory distributors in the U.S. Once the Labguard™ is off and running and sales are realized, the Company will aggressively pursue its next exciting product launch: the proprietary safety needle device (Protect-A-Pal™), that is built around leading-edge technology that offers superior healthcare worker safety and enhanced ease-of-use compared to conventional devices… at a significantly lower price.
