IDenta Stinger Drug Detection Kits Receive Official French Government Endorsement -- Dramatic Increase in Sales to French Law Enforcement Agencies Expected

JERUSALEM--(Marketwire - September 12, 2008) - IDenta Corp. (PINKSHEETS: IDTA) announced today that IDenta and IBTEC, the company's representative agency in the country of France, have received an official endorsement letter from the French National Police. The endorsement names IDenta Stinger Drug Detectors as the only drug detector products that should be purchased by all French Police agencies across the country.

IDTA CEO Yaacov Shoham said after receiving the endorsement letter, "The years of hard work we have done in France including the extensive testing by their laboratories, and the meticulous attention by IBTEC officials to their needs and requests have paid off with a big home run for IDenta Corp. We have officially displaced our competitors in one of the largest, most respected law enforcement agencies in the world. IDenta and IBTEC are fully committed to addressing all of the agency's requests and to expanding the use of all of our products in all government agencies in France."

In February of 2006 the French Laboratory of Police Science in Lyons released a comparative study of drug detectors showing the superiority of IDenta Stinger Drug Detectors. In recent months the demonstration and contractual process has been expedited by IDenta's partnership with the French firm IBTEC. Sales of both IDenta Stinger Drug Detectors and IDenta Alert Explosive Identifiers have been steadily increasing. IDenta has now shipped over 60,000 drug detector kits to several French National Police agencies since the beginning of 2008.

With this endorsement letter obligating all French law enforcement agencies to exclusively purchase IDenta Stinger Drug Detectors, IBTEC is now projecting dramatic increase in orders. As part of the official endorsement IDenta/IBTEC will be listed in SGAP, the official French police equipment and supplier catalog, under both drug detectors and explosive detectors. Additional French government agencies such as French Customs, the Department of the Interior Ministry and the French Jandarmerie are also expected to be influenced by this endorsement.

In news released earlier this week, IDenta also announced that 12,480 drug detector kits worth approximately $45,000 USD are being shipped to SDT Electronica / Thomson S.A. for use in law enforcement agencies in Portugal. IDenta believes that orders in that country have the potential to reach $200 - $300,000 per year in sales.


Since 2003, IDenta Corporation has become recognized as a world-wide leader in the development of proprietary on-site drug, drug precursor and explosive detection kits. IDenta develops, manufactures and distributes products for both the professional and civil markets which consistently pass the highest qualifications and testing procedures of law enforcement and security agencies around the world.
