UV Flu Technologies Adds Boston Bruins as Latest High Profile ViraTech UV-400 Customer

CENTERVILLE, MA--(Marketwire - October 22, 2010) -  UV Flu Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: UVFT) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that Massachusetts based distributor, New England Sports Sales ("NESSI"), a national distributor of hockey and related equipment to college and professional hockey teams across the USA and Canada, has recently placed an order of ViraTech UV-400 air purifying units in the locker room of the renowned Boston Bruins hockey team.

"This is the second professional hockey team to put the UV-400 in their locker rooms, along with several college hockey teams," stated Charles Gulteri, President of NESSI. "Teams at this level of competition are acutely aware that healthy players are critical for a winning effort. Losing key players in-season for several games due to sickness that could have been avoided is costly and needs to be prevented using every effective tool commercially available. The ViraTech UV-400 kills bacteria and other contaminants, which are rampant in locker rooms, as well as controlling odors. The UV-400's ability to dramatically reduce odors is a really helpful benefit in the close quarters of a locker room, especially given the access commonly granted to reporters and other special guests. We think this unit could become standard operating equipment in locker rooms around the world," said Mr. Gulteri.

"Athletic locker rooms are becoming a surprisingly robust area of interest for our product," said Jack Lennon, President of UV Flu Technologies. "Players are travelling by plane constantly, so they are very susceptible to respiratory illnesses that they pick up while travelling and then pass on by sneezing and coughing in the locker room. Not only does this cause other players to get sick, the illness can be inflamed by the many volatile organic compounds used in the locker rooms, from rubbing alcohol, through muscle relaxants, bathroom cleaning solvents, etc. The UV-400 kills over 99% of airborne bacteria and other contaminants with every pass, while also dramatically reducing the concentration and effect of these volatile organic compounds, including odors. We believe the market for our product in this market segment, along with our ongoing sales to the hotel and medical community, may compel us to pro-actively increase our production estimates for the UV-400 over the next 18 months," said Mr. Lennon.
