PHILADELPHIA & HONG KONG -- Biofield Corp.

The distributor, MacKay Health Systems, ("MHS"), a company primarily made up of nationals from the licensed territories, acquired the rights to Mexico and various Central & Latin American countries via an exclusive distribution agreement it entered into with MacKay Innotech LTD, ("MHK"), a Hong Kong company. MKH holds a worldwide master license from Biofield to manufacture and distribute the BDS units.

Under the terms of distribution agreement, MHS will pay MHK a non-refundable licensing fee of $1 million dollars and 10% Royalty of Gross Revenues. Terms require the distributor to purchase a minimum number of units per quarter, per country. The specific countries are: Aruba, Belize, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guadeloupe, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Martinique, Mexico, Netherland Antilles, Nicaragua, Puerto Rico. Saint Martin and Saint Pierre & Miquelon. The company has, this week, shipped the initial order, as per the terms of the agreement. Regular recurring shipments are expected to follow.

The company, which recently completed its transformation from a medical technology company which solely developed and distributed its own proprietary technology (the BDS unit) to one that also has and seeks to acquire other, primarily, noninvasive diagnostic medical devices to assist in detecting and preventing cancer and other illnesses. After acquisition, the company then distributes these non-invasive and cost effective technologies and devices, by first targeting the world's largest population centers.

Biofield has acquired 10% of ValiRx PLC listed on the UK's AIM stock exchange together with the right for the exclusive worldwide distribution rights outside of Belgium, for ValiRx plc's Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) diagnostic test for cervical cancer as well as for ValiBio Hypergenomics[TM].

The company also announced its intention to change its name to "MacKay Life Sciences, Inc." The name change is also meant to precede closing of the previously announced intention of MHK to vend back into the company, the master license MHK holds, in addition to the rights and agreements that MHK has amassed during its term as the master licensee, which should result in greater revenues being realized by the public company.
