BIODYNAMICS ANNOUNCES RESULTS OF AUTOTRANSFUSION SYSTEM FIELD TRIALS

 TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Biodynamics International, Inc. (NASDAQ: BDYN) today announced that Advanced Haemotechnologies ("AHT"), the joint venture owned equally by Biodynamics and a subsidiary of Surgimedics, Inc., has evaluated results from clinical sites on its blood processing device, the PlatelePlus(TM). AHT has concluded that in order to capture the full value from this technology, further studies and product development are necessary.
 Hematological analysis of the blood product produced by the system confirmed high quality output both in red cell and platelet content. Issues related to ease of use and processing speed have led AHT to determine that modifications must be made to the system in order to render it suitable for a broader range of surgical applications.
 The additional studies and product development, as well as other applications in the area of blood banking will be evaluated over the next six to eight months. Management feels that this is not likely to have a material adverse effect on Biodynamic's operational results.
 Biodynamics International, Inc. processes, manufactures and distributes worldwide, specialty surgical products for neuro, orthopedic, cardiovascular, reconstructive and general surgical applications. The company is headquartered in Tampa, Fla. The company's wholly owned subsidiary, Biodynamics International (Deutschland) GmbH, has processing and manufacturing facilities in Neunkirchen, Germany and executive offices in Erlangen, Germany.
