 MINNTECH ESTABLISHES NEW DIVISION FOR MICROFILTRATION PRODUCTS
 MINNEAPOLIS, June 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Minntech Corporation (NASDAQ: MNTX) announced today it has created a new division, Fibercor(TM), to develop and market cartridge microfilters that can be used in a variety of pharmaceutical and industrial applications. Dr. Roger Johnson has been named the division's managing director.
 The new division makes extensive use of Minntech's hollow fiber technology. Its first product launch, the FiberFlo(TM) cartridge, culminates several years of internal development.
 "Initially," said Johnson, "we plan to market the new FiberFlo cartridge to pharmaceutical and medical companies whose manufacturing processes require bacteria and pyrogen-free water. Other microfiltration products currently under development are targeted for industrial application."
 Johnson added, "It is estimated that the cartridge microfiltration market exceeds $300 million per year. In addition to the pharmaceutical and medical sector, other potential users of cartridge microfilters include manufacturers of chemicals and semiconductors."
 Minntech Corporation is a leading medical device manufacturer with advanced technology in electronics, solutions, fibers and plastics. The company's core technologies are being applied to the businesses of dialysis, reprocessing/sterilants, cardiosurgery and water purification. Minntech Corporation's common stock is traded on the National Over-The- Counter market under NASDAQ symbol: MNTX
