IDenta to Present Heroin Precursor Kit to United Nations Conference in Paris on Thursday -- IDenta Drug Precursor Products to Engage Crucial Front on the International War on Drugs

JERUSALEM--(Marketwire - June 10, 2008) - IDenta Corp. (PINKSHEETS: IDTA) announced today that the company will make a special presentation to The International Narcotics Control Board (INCB) of the United Nations on Thursday, June 12, 2008. At the conference, being hosted by French high position officials and to be held in Paris, France, local Identa representatives (IBTEC) will introduce the first of IDenta's new line of drug precursor products. The Heroin Precursor detector, developed at the request of the French National Chemical Precursors Control Unit, Ministry of Economy, Finance and Industry, is expected to be a major breakthrough in the international war on illicit drugs and heroin production. The Paris conference will be focusing on the problem of heroin manufactured in Afghanistan (Afghanistan is the main supplier of the heroin drug in the world).

"We are honored to be given the opportunity to make this presentation before this special conference," said IDTA CEO Yaacov Shoham. "We believe that the development of IDenta's new line of drug precursors is a technological advancement that will give law enforcement agencies around the world a major new tool in identifying chemical shipments that are intended to be part of clandestine chemistry. IDenta On-site Precursor Detectors will enable law enforcement agencies to expand their search for illicit substances necessary for the development of illegal drugs like heroin, and stop these illegal shipments before they make it to manufacturing plants in major heroin producing countries like Afghanistan."

Research and development of this first new IDenta precursor product was led by Mr. Baruch Glattstein, IDenta's Chief Scientist, who holds numerous patents in the fields of drug and explosive detection. The new product being demonstrated at the Paris Conference will detect acetic anhydride (AA), a clear, colorless liquid. Morphine, one of many alkaloids in opium, is first extracted out of opium by precipitation and then turned into heroin by heating it with acetic anhydride. AA is the most commonly used chemical agent in heroin processing and is virtually irreplaceable according to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency.

IDenta is in the process now of applying for patents for its new precursor products. IDTA expects to soon be marketing the new line of precursor products around the world and believes that they have the potential to be a significant new source of revenue for the company.
