UV Flu Technologies Successfully Targets Athletics Sector With Latest Sale and Product Shipment

CENTERVILLE, MA--(Marketwire - June 11, 2010) - UV Flu Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: UVFT) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company's master distributor, Puravair, Inc., has completed a sales agreement and begun shipping the patented airborne bacteria-killing ViraTech UV-400 air purifier to a major national specialty sporting and athletics equipment distributor.

The sale was entered into with Massachusetts-based New England Sports Sales ("NESSI"), a national distributor of hockey and related equipment to college and professional hockey teams across the USA and Canada. "This product is a must for every locker room," said Charles Gultieri, President of NESSI. "This could be one of the most important developments to college and professional sports in the last 20 years."

"Athletic locker rooms are a perfect environment for the growth of bacteria and other airborne agents which can cause sickness," said Jack Lennon, the President of UV Flu Technologies. "One of the most common forms of bacteria we see in athletic locker rooms is staphylococcus aureus (staph infections). The ViraTech UV-400 air purifier is proven to kill the bacteria at a 99% success rate. Hockey, football, and basketball are all sports where preventing illnesses of key players are an ongoing and major issue, and can represent a significant ongoing cost factor to manage. Given the ease of use and proven ability our product has shown in improving indoor air quality, we believe the UV-400 can aid in the reduction of negative performance due to unhealthy air quality by providing team members a healthier environment both before and after every game. This issue goes beyond individual franchises right up the ladder to potentially help entire leagues mitigate the added cost burdens due to untimely airborne bacteria-caused illnesses."

Mr. Lennon added, "Locker rooms in health clubs, gymnasiums, and country clubs, along with many other high traffic health facilities, have all had their share of problems due to the transmission of bacteria, or have experienced significant cost burdens as a result of reactive measures taken to prevent the spread of disease. The UV-400 is an FDA cleared medical device which kills over 99% of all airborne bacteria with every pass, and it can pass the air up to several times per hour, helping to keep athletes healthy and safe. It really is a must for every locker room, and the fact that there is no filter to clog up or change is a major plus."
