    Tuesday, May 15, 2007 - Clemex Technologies Inc. (TSX Venture: CXG.a) announces today that it has recently sold and delivered three image analysis systems for Life Science applications. One system, a PS3 (Particle Size and Shape) was sold to Bayer Health Care, Elberfeld, Germany and will be used for the analysis of crystal shape particles while the two others, smaller versions of the PS3, were sold to Abbott Vascular in California and Boston Scientific in Minneapolis MI. These last two systems will be used to assess cleanliness of medical devices through Filter Membrane inspection.

    Clement Forget, President and CEO of Clemex Technologies commented, “While the sales cycle for our PS3 instrument remains much longer than for our other products, there is no doubt that the demand is there. The quality and performance of our product is recognized and this has played a major role in the sale to Bayer Health Care. We continue to concentrate our efforts on the marketing and promotion side of this product and we are convinced that results will come sooner than later.” He continued: As for the two systems sold for cleanliness assessment, this is a new application for us in the Life Science sector. Many manufacturers of precision devices and all manufacturers of medical devices somehow clean their end products or their product components prior to packaging and the most effective way to guarantee such cleanliness is to inspect the cleaning fluid itself during the process. This is done by filtering the cleaning fluid, collecting dirt and debris that were present on the parts on a membrane filters which is then scanned under a microscope. The new Clemex PS3 system can do this without any modification and this application therefore opens many new doors for our instrument.”
