Tulip BioMed Demonstrates Disposable Surgical Instruments at Recent Conferences

New Instruments Supporting Safer Cosmetic Surgery Well-Received by Surgeons

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 14, 2007 --Tulip BioMed™, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: TPBD), a developer of medical devices and patented technologies for the living tissue markets, including plastic, cosmetic, and orthopedic surgeries, comments on the exhibition of its new disposable cannulas for these markets at both the "New Horizons in Cosmetic Surgery" in Indian Wells (near Palm Springs), California, and "American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery - 23rd Annual Scientific Meeting" in Phoenix, Arizona.

Both conferences are designed for the experienced surgeon who is familiar with standard aesthetic procedures and wishes to learn more about newer, better technologies and techniques to enhance his or her practice. Tulip BioMed demonstrated its disposable, minimally-invasive micro-cannulas for fat harvest, transfer, re-injection and other surgical uses (already on the market) plus a series of five, versatile, disposable cannula models (proto-types) that work with standard aspiration machines as well as the syringe system (aesthetic) method of liposuction.

The Indian Wells conference featured J. William Little, MD, a well-known, Washington, DC-based aesthetic plastic surgeon who is a key specialist in fat transfer techniques. In a prior release Dr. Little stated, "Plastic surgery's recent emphasis on the reversal of mid-facial descent, combined with replacement -- rather than removal -- of lower eyelid fat, has made a difference in the quality of results." Dr. Little further commented, "Good surgeons are always looking for better and safer instrumentation. Tulip's blunt tip disposable cannulas will help us perform safer surgeries with more predictable results and are convenient for the O.R. staff."

The Phoenix conference featured Mark Berman, MD, and Robert Alexander, MD, DMD both well-known, aesthetic plastic surgeons who specialize in fat transfer techniques. Dr. Berman, through his presentations on both "Facial Fat Grafting" and "Lipo Augmentation," introduced Tulip BioMed instruments to the attending industry professionals. Tulip instruments were also used in Dr. Alexander's presentation on "Fat Transfer with Primary Liposuction." Dr. Alexander, a member of Tulip's Board of Scientific Advisors, is a strong proponent of the Tulip products as being superior in safety and quality.

The disposable instruments developed by Tulip BioMed are designed to solve cross-contamination issues by eliminating reuse of instruments in liposuction, fat transfer and other closed end cannula procedures. The lubricious coating is designed to not only decrease the trauma to the cells inside the lumen, but is also designed to increase the ease of manipulation for extraction and re-injection procedures, minimize bruising and shorten recovery periods.
