                    ("ProPhotonix" or "the Company")

 ProPhotonix to Introduce Five New Machine Vision Lighting Solutions at
                the Vision Show in Stuttgart, Germany

     High-Performance Products for Exacting Machine Vision Applications

ProPhotonix Limited, (London Stock Exchange - AIM: PPIX and PPIR, OTC:
STKR.PK), a designer and manufacturer of LED light engines and laser
diodes modules with operations in Ireland and the U.K., is pleased to
report that it will introduce five new products within its current
range of machine vision solutions at the Vision Show which will be held
in Stuttgart, Germany, from 8 November - 10 November.

At the show, the Company will unveil InViso Micro, an extension to the
existing InViso range that delivers line thicknesses as low as 16
(micro)mat 120 mm working distance, while preserving InViso's
innovative form factor. InVisoTM, introduced in 2010, is a range of
diode-based laser modules with a unique flat form factor for expediting
integration and alignment while ensuring a high-degree of
repeatability. It is available in a range of wavelengths and power
levels up to 100mW.

ProPhotonix also announces important additions to its proprietary COBRA
Slim technology, increasing its capabilities and its flexibility.
Introduced in 2009, COBRA Slim, the company's premier LED line light,
is built on patented chip-on-board technology. The new additions

1. COBRA Max - The same slim modular design as the COBRA Slim with
   twice the illumination intensity.

2. COBRA Flex - An extreme brightness line light in a more compact
   form factor making it perfect for applications where space is

3. COBRA Slim FL - Twice the illumination intensity as COBRA Slim
   designed specifically for short working distances.

LOTUS Line Light, an LED replacement for fluorescents that is
compatible with both back and front lighting area scan or linescan
applications has been extended to include UV products. It is now
available in 365nm or 395nm.

All these product enhancements were designed and developed at the
Company's R&D center in Cork, Ireland.

Commenting on the new product launches, Mark W. Blodgett, Chairman and
CEO of ProPhotonix, said: "These extensions to our product line build
on our existing industry-leading suite of machine vision solutions and
are a direct result of our close working relationship with our
customers. They are always facing new operational challenges and our
engineers start with a clean sheet of paper and systematically develop
products that offer them greater flexibility, higher performance, and
easier integration.""We remain committed to being at the forefront of
innovation within the LED technology sector, an area which is still
seeing strong growth. At the Vision show we are simulating a
production environment so that visitors to our booth can see how these
products might function in their environment. In addition we are also
showcasing the whole design process to illustrate the level of detail and
interaction needed to create quality products."
