PSYCHEMEDICS ANNOUNCES NEW REGIONAL SALES MANAGER FOR MIDWEST REGION

 HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Psychemedics Corporation (NASDAQ: PCMC) today announced that James D. Anderson, of Lake Forest, Ill., has joined the company as Regional Sales Manager for the Midwest Region of the United States. The announcement was made by Raymond C. Kubacki, president of Psychemedics.
 In his new position, Anderson will be responsible for managing and directing the sales and marketing efforts for Psychemedics and its proprietary hair-testing technology for drug abuse among corporate and other clients of the company in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Wisconsin, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Minnesota and North and South Dakota.
 Anderson comes to Psychemedics following a seven-year career as president and chief executive officer of Fultran, Inc., of Hammond, Ind., a transportation company. Prior to his work there, he had been corporate vice president at Fullerton Metals Company in Northbrook, Ill., having previously held the positions of operations manager and general manager of this company.
 He holds a bachelor of science degree in economics from Colgate University in Hamilton, N.Y., and had served in Vietnam from 1968-1970 as a U.S. Army Sergeant.
 Psychemedics Corporation, which currently has more than 200 corporate clients, has developed a proprietary test for drugs of abuse that uses human hair instead of urine or blood for the detection of illegal drugs in the system. Advantages to other more intrusive methods include a longer "window of detection," ease of collection, shipping and storage, and difficulty in adulteration or "beating the test." The Psychemedics hair test can detect drug use for the previous 90 days (three months) versus only three or four days with urine or blood. Drug abusers, therefore, cannot evade detection by simply abstaining a few days before a drug test. The company is based in Chicago with affiliated offices in Boston; Dallas; Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.; Atlanta; Morristown, N.J.; and San Francisco, in addition to its laboratory facilities in Culver City, Calif.
