BIOMERICA ADDS K-MART FOR DISTRIBUTION OF EZ DETECT TEST

 NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Biomerica Inc. (NASDAQ: BMRA) announce that K-Mart stores will be distributing the EZ Detect(TM) Stool Blood Test.
 This significant event adds greatly to the market expansion of the product which is already being distributed through other major chain drug stores such as Walgreens, CVS, Sav-On/Osco and Hook Drugs.
 The EZ Detect product is a simple two-minute home test for the detection of occult (hidden) blood in the stool, an early warning sign of bowel problems and gastrointestinal bleeding that may be caused by various ailments including colorectal cancer, ulcers, polyps, hemorrhoids, excess aspirin ingestion, etc.
 The EZ Detect test requires no diet restrictions and no handling of the stool. The user simply places a biodegradable test pad in the toilet after a bowel movement, and if excess blood is present, a blue-green cross will appear. The results are then recorded on a reply card and sent to the doctor for evaluation.
 Annual testing for colorectal cancer for all individuals more than 50 years old, and for high-risk individuals with a family history of the disease, is recommended by the American Cancer Society.
 EZ Detect is a very useful means of alerting the individual to bowel problems in their early stages before they become catastrophic. The product is in line with the present U.S. administration posture to encourage the use of simple and inexpensive devices such as EZ Detect for the early determination of diseases or conditions that can promote and maintain good health.
 Biomerica is a medical company engaged in the development, manufacturing and marketing of advanced medical diagnostic products including home self-testing for the early diagnosis of diseases before they become incurable.
