BIOMERICA ADDS CVS DRUG STORES FOR DISTRIBUTION OF EZ DETECT TEST

 NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Biomerica Inc. (NASDAQ: BMRA) announced that more than 1,200 CVS drug stores will be distributing the EZ Detect(TM) Stool Blood Test.
 This is a significant development for the company in the market expansion of the product. The company had previously succeeded in getting this over the counter product distributed through major chain drug stores such as Walgreens, Sav-On/Osco and Hook Drugs.
 EZ Detect is a simple two-minute home test for 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, etc.
 The EZ Detect test is an easy-to-use home test requiring no diet restrictions and no handling of the stool. The patient 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 coloretcal cancer for all individuals more than 50 years of age and in high-risk patients is recommended by the American Cancer Society.
 EZ Detect is a very useful means of altering the individual to bowel problems in their early stages before they become incurable. The product is in line with the present U.S. administration posture in encouraging the use of simple and inexpensive test systems such as EZ Detect for the early determination of diseases or conditions that can promote and maintain good health at minimal cost.
 Biomerica is a medical company engaged in the development, manufacturing and marketing of advanced medical diagnostic products including home self-testing for early diagnosis of many diseases before becoming incurable.
