Methamphetamine Contaminated Cars and Buildings Identified by CDEX ID2 Meth Scanner™ During Inspections With the Island County Public Health Department, Washington

Methamphetamine Tests Conducted in Buildings, Trailers, a Children's Dance Studio, and Cars Brought in Voluntarily by Local Citizens for Inspection

TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwire - April 20, 2009) - CDEX Inc. (OTCBB: CEXI) (, announces that in inspections with the Island County Public Health Department in Washington, the ID2 Meth Scanner™ identified methamphetamine contamination in buildings, trailers, used cars at a dealership, and a children's dance studio. In addition, the Scanner found methamphetamine in automobiles voluntarily brought for inspection by local citizens. The ID2 Meth Scanner is a handheld, battery-operated device that quickly detects trace quantities of methamphetamine. The inspections were held during a demonstration of the Meth Scanner which had been requested by Marie Piper, the County's Environmental Health Specialist. The tests, being confirmed by laboratory analysis, were observed by a number of government officials, methamphetamine remediation experts, and the media, e.g. KOMO Channel 4 in Seattle (

"The ID2 Meth Scanner was easy to work with and provided almost immediate results," said Ms. Piper. "We inspected areas where our police department had alerted us to the possibility of methamphetamine contamination. Earlier, we had one case where a pregnant woman unsuspectingly bought a house where meth contamination was present and her baby was born with meth-indicative health issues. So we react to these police alerts as quickly as possible to protect our citizens. The Meth Scanner could give us that quick reaction capability that we need."

"When Ms. Piper called seeking information concerning the Meth Scanner, it was clear that her Department was well ahead of most other government jurisdictions," said Tim Shriver, Jr., CDEX Director of Security Division Sales. "The cooperation between their law enforcement and public health departments is very good, and that equates to rapid action that serves to protect the public from the adverse health impacts of methamphetamine exposure. We are proud that the ID2 Meth Scanner will be able to play a role in that battle."
