Innovotech Strengthens Product Development Capability With ISO Accreditation

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 15, 2008) - The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has approved Innovotech's (TSX VENTURE:IOT) quality system for medical device manufacture, meaning that it meets the exceptionally high international standards of ISO 13485:2003. This accreditation will augment the safety and operational infrastructure that Innovotech is building to support its first medical device product, bioFILM PA™. Achieving this milestone gives Innovotech greater freedom to fully exploit the manufacturing and market potential for bioFILM PA™ and related products that Innovotech is developing.

"Hospitals and diagnostic laboratories can use bioFILM PA™ with the comfort that the product meets Health Canada regulatory standards and the high quality standards required by ISO 13485:2003", says Dr. Bhavin Rawal, Product Manager - bioFILM PA™. "This accreditation will provide the company with full control over the supply chain including in-house manufacturing of bioFILM PA™".

The audit for Innovotech's ISO certification was completed by Intertek, an independent Standards Council of Canada accredited registrar.
