Pall Enters Laboratory Water Market With New Cascada
Lab Water System

EAST HILLS, N.Y.--(CCNMatthews - Feb 28, 2005) -

Purified water is an essential and growing requirement of research and
diagnostic laboratories. Water quality can wreak havoc on sensitive
equipment and test results. To meet demanding life science and
analytical testing requirements, Pall Corporation (NYSE: PLL), the
global leader in filtration, separations and purification, announced
that it is bringing its water purification expertise to the laboratory
market with the introduction of the Pall Cascada™ Lab Water Systems.
The Cascada point-of-use system provides optimum water quality to
support diverse laboratory needs from the most critical, sensitive
applications through general-purpose use.

"As the lab market becomes increasingly complex and demanding, customers
need trustworthy providers that are deeply entrenched in water
purification," says Ken L. Harris, President Pall Life Sciences New
Technology. "Pall's entry into this marketplace combines more than a
half century experience in the development of the most advanced water
purification technologies used by a host of industries worldwide with
our in-depth, extensive knowledge and understanding of the diverse
application needs of the laboratory markets we serve."

The Cascada System enables laboratories to achieve the highest purity
water through a series of separation and purification steps in a single
box on demand. Four polishing systems, with customized configurations to
meet a wide range of sensitive application requires for high quality
ultrapure water, are available. A pretreatment system is also available
to protect and extend the life of the polishers, which is particularly
important in cases where there is poor feedwater quality.

Expanding Market with Unmet Needs

"The lab water market continues to expand and rapid technological growth
in regions of the world, such as Asia and Latin America, still have many
unmet needs. We are confident we will be one of the leading providers of
point-of-use laboratory water systems in the near future," says Mr.

The global laboratory water systems and consumables market is estimated
at $250 million dollars, growing at a rate of about 8 percent annually.

"Pall selected the best available technology for our new system to
monitor and protect the quality of the output water at the least cost of
ownership for academic, clinical, biopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical
research laboratories," Mr. Harris adds. "The new Cascada system is
merely the tip of the iceberg for Pall in this marketplace."

The Company plans to extend its dominant position in water purification
by utilizing its proprietary technologies to continue to refine systems
and lead in the growing, changing and ever more demanding laboratory
water market.
