Reflect Scientific's Miralogix Adds 3DX-RAY Technology to Catpro Environmental Catalyst Inspection System

OREM, UT--(Marketwire - October 16, 2008) - Reflect Scientific, Inc. (OTCBB: RSCF), a supplier of cryogenic cooling and test & measurement equipment to life sciences and manufacturing industries, reported its Miralogix unit has entered into an agreement with 3DX-RAY Limited, a unit of Image Scan Holdings plc, for the integration of 3DX-RAY's products into Miralogix Catpro Environmental Catalyst Inspection Systems.

3DX-RAY markets Image Scan's proprietary, modular software and hardware that provide innovative methods of acquiring, interpreting and presenting X-ray images. The technology includes three-dimensional ("3D") imaging capability, making analysis and interpretation of images far easier than with conventional two-dimensional ("2D") X-ray techniques.

Image Scan's products have been endorsed by world-leading organizations like the British Government's Home Office, Rapiscan Systems Limited ("Rapiscan"), GE Healthcare (formerly Amersham plc) and Johnson Matthey.

"The addition of 3DX-RAY's technology represents an important advancement of our Miralogix line as a complementary tool that greatly enhances Miralogix's inspection capabilities," said Eric Pierson, director of Miralogix. "The environmental catalyst industry is constantly seeking more effective technologies to assist in their assurance of quality, and this new partnership allows us to offer an integrated package to meet their requirements."

Government mandates on environmental quality have made the need to treat diesel exhaust an industry imperative creating an expanding market potential for Miralogix's Catpro inspection systems. The company has taken the opportunity to serve this large and expanding market by applying its proven experience in developing integrated inspection systems for non-destructive testing using advanced machine vision, laser and ultrasound technologies.

Kim Boyce, CEO of Reflect Scientific, commented, "Diesel and automotive catalyst inspection is a demanding process, so the addition of this X-ray capability adds tremendous value for our customers. This alliance creates a clear competitive advantage for Catpro, and makes further adoption of our unique inspection technology now even more compelling."
