Wall Street News Alert: Emerging Public Company Begins Assembly/Packaging Design and Quality Control for Labguard™! December 8, 2005

NOTE TO EDITORS: The Following Is an Investment Opinion Being Issued by Wall Street Capital Funding.

WESTON, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 8, 2005 -- Wall Street News Alert's "stocks to watch" this morning are: Southwestern Medical Solutions Inc. (OTC: SWNM), Merck & Co. Inc. (NYSE: MRK), Millennium Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: MLNM) and Elan Corporation, plc (NYSE: ELN).

Southwestern Medical Solutions, Inc. (OTC: SWNM) could be one of the targets of aggressive investors and day traders this morning! Yesterday after the stock markets closed, the company issued a press release announcing that the final engineering & design for packaging/assembly and quality control of its initial Labguard system has commenced with a large California-based medical supplier.

The news of the advancement towards the sale of Labguard may get the attention of investors, as the company states that having met FDA guidelines and requirements for a Medical Device license, implementation of final design has been enthusiastically approved by R&D personnel, Medical Caregivers, and Board members. SWNM will under license work with its new packaging supplier to move the proprietary Labguard product through the necessary steps of its final phase, from sterility, insertion of IFU's, and closure of its medical grade wrapper, to final insertion into its box and case lots for shipping.

Continue to watch this company! The Labguard™ system represents a new generation of diagnostic testing that will greatly enhance the accuracy of the tests performed and the safety of the administrators, as well as reducing the ability of any tampering of specimens. SWNM is poised to bring this product to market through its many distributor alliances including international markets and OEM license of the product to two of the largest laboratory distributors in the U.S. Following the launch of the Labguard™ system, the Company will then direct its efforts toward the introduction of its proprietary safety needle device, the exciting Protect-A-Pal™, which the Company views as offering major improvements in both safety and ease-of-use over conventional needle safety systems -- at a much lower cost to end users!

Investors should continue to monitor the progress of Southwestern Medical Solutions! Following a thorough analysis of the medical packaging industry, SWNM ultimately chose a company that it believes will best advance the Labguard system toward the ultimate commercial launch phase. SWNM is thus poised to bring an exciting and promising product to market within budget, and provide the medical community with a revolutionary sampling/testing modality at an affordable price to all.

Prior to the latest press release, the stock closed yesterday at around Six cents a share.
