Vicor Technologies' Selects Dell to Serve as Worldwide IT Hardware Partner for Its PD2i Analyzer™

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - October 6, 2010) - David H. Fater, CEO of Vicor Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: VCRT), today announced that Vicor has selected Dell's Healthcare and Life Sciences division to serve as its worldwide hardware partner for the Company's PD2i Analyzer™ and PD2i CA™ (Cardiac Analyzer). According to the terms of the agreement, Dell will create Vicor-labeled laptop computers specifically customized to Vicor's specifications and package them for Vicor's worldwide distribution. Vicor Technologies is a biotechnology company focused on the development of innovative, non-invasive medical devices using its patented, proprietary PD2i® nonlinear algorithm and software. Vicor Technologies is a biotechnology company focused on the development of innovative, non-invasive medical devices using its patented, proprietary PD2i® nonlinear algorithm and software. Vicor is currently in the process of commercializing diagnostics that accurately risk stratify specific target populations for future pathological events, including congestive heart failure patients for cardiac death resulting from arrhythmia or pump failure, diabetics for diabetic autonomic neuropathy (DAN), and trauma victims for imminent death absent immediate lifesaving intervention.

"Dell Healthcare and Life Sciences is proud to be chosen as Vicor's worldwide IT solutions provider. Dell is committed to developing and supporting healthcare IT solutions to improve care and delivery," stated Scott Jenkins, PhD, Vice President, Dell, Inc.

 "We're thrilled to have Dell as our worldwide IT solutions partner. Dell's well-established reputation for creating innovative technologies and business solutions, strong internal development capabilities, global reach, and consumer-centric approach make it the perfect worldwide IT solutions partner for Vicor," stated Mr. Fater. 

"Given the growing amount of positive feedback we're receiving from physicians and cardiologists using the PD2i Analyzer™ to enhance diagnosis of those at risk of cardiac death from arrhythmia or pump failure, as well as autonomic neuropathy, we're extremely optimistic about the prospects for the PD2i Analyzer™ and PD2i CA™ worldwide. These diagnostics have enabled the physicians and cardiologists using them to use existing CPT codes for reimbursement, strengthened their ability to diagnose difficult to identify conditions, and enabled early, sometimes life-saving treatment," Mr. Fater concluded.

About Vicor Technologies, Inc.
Vicor Technologies is focused on commercializing innovative non-invasive diagnostics employing its patented, proprietary point correlation dimension algorithm (PD2i®). The PD2i® nonlinear algorithm is a deterministic, nonlinear measure of electrophysiological potentials that predicts future pathological events with a high degree of accuracy in target populations.

The PD2i Analyzer™, which has FDA 510(k) marketing clearance, measures heart rate variability. Physicians performing diagnostic tests with the PD2i Analyzer™ are able to receive reimbursement under existing CPT codes. The PD2i VS™ (Vital Sign), in clinical trials under a collaborative effort with the U.S. Army Institute for Surgical Research (, risk stratifies combat and civilian trauma victims. The PD2i CA™ (Cardiac Analyzer), in various clinical trials, identifies patients at elevated risk of cardiac death resulting from arrhythmia or pump failure.

Vicor anticipates developing additional applications utilizing the PD2i® nonlinear algorithm to enable early detection and risk stratification for a variety of other disorders and diseases. Additional information is available at
