TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwire - September 20, 2007) - CDEX Inc. (OTCBB: CEXI) announces the results of testing by the Greenlee County Sheriff's Department of the CDEX ID2 ("Meth Scanner™"). The Greenlee County Sheriff's Department tested the ability of the Meth Scanner to detect trace quantities of methamphetamine on various surfaces including clothing, baby toys and hard surfaces. Portions of the target surfaces were contaminated with trace quantities (less than the eye can see) of methamphetamine supplied by the Sheriff's Department. Contaminated and uncontaminated surfaces were scanned by members of the Sheriff's Department and the results tabulated. The Meth Scanner detected the trace quantities of methamphetamine 100% of the time with no false positives. (The report is contained on the CDEX web site at

The CDEX ID2 ('Meth Scanner") is a hand held, battery operated device that detects trace quantities of methamphetamine on surfaces, including clothing and skin, in a continuous scan mode from standoff distances of 2-8 inches. The Meth Scanner requires no operator interpretation of results and detects methamphetamine in a continuous scan mode without damaging the substance under investigation. The Meth Scanner is in its second round of beta testing with Law Enforcement Agencies.

"The Greenlee County Sheriff's Department has been an outstanding beta partner testing the Meth Scanner in the field and the lab," said Tim Shriver, Jr., CDEX Project Manager for the Meth Scanner. "They have given us good feedback on use of the ID2 resulting in improvements in a number of areas. We are talking with potential distribution partners for the Meth Scanner and expect to begin marketing in CY 2007."
