flexSCAN, Inc. Announces geneVIEW™ -- Free Genetic Testing

MISSION VIEJO, CA--(Marketwire - February 13, 2008) - flexSCAN, Inc. (OTCBB: FXSC) announced today that it will begin offering comprehensive genetic testing free of charge to anyone visiting the website. "Today's trend of charging for genetic testing, as demonstrated by 23andme, a Google investment, and dnadirect, may make economic sense for their businesses, unfortunately this strategy by its nature is exclusionary. The sad fact is few people have $1,000 to spare for the luxury of having their DNA tested, not to mention the cost of testing an entire family," said Founder and CEO Thomas Banks. "Our mission is simple, we intend to make genetic testing available to everyone, not simply for people with an extra thousand dollars burning a hole in their pockets."

flexSCAN's geneVIEW service is about fair and equal access. Additionally, when paired with flexSCAN's free wellness360 service, this is the first genetic testing proposition that is not simply economically sound, it links an individual's genetic results with the tools necessary for addressing potential issues early through diet, fitness and becomes an integral part of one's personal health record.

"Information for information's sake may be interesting, however, we offer information paired with action which empowers individuals to take control of their lives, health and wellbeing," said Banks.

"Our services are completely free to everyone. There are no charges, fees, upgrades, or dues -- and are absolutely free. In fact, to encourage utilization, everyone earns reward points for simply visiting wellness360 that they can exchange for much needed cash to help offset the out-of-control healthcare costs faced every day," said Banks.
