SDI Announces Earth Day Sale of Microtox(R) Platform to China.

Provincial Government Adopts Portable Deltatox([R]) System for Use in Water Quality Improvement Efforts

NEWARK, Del. -- Strategic Diagnostics Inc. (NASDAQ:SDIX) -today announced the Earth Day sale of its Deltatox([R]) portable water toxicity detection system to one of 22 Chinese provincial governments. Specifics regarding parties to the transaction were not disclosed at the request of the customer.

The sale represents 30 additional systems, adding to the growing total of installed Microtox([R]) and Deltatox([R]) instruments across the Country. Matthew H. Knight, President and CEO of SDI commented, "Across China, we are beginning to see a growing emphasis on water quality from both regulators and industry. This sale represents growing acceptance of Deltatox([R]) and Microtox([R]) as standard methods for water quality preservation efforts in the Chinese market."

The Deltatox([R]) system is a portable, rapid assay system that provides repeatable, accurate results at the source of the sample. This "distributed detection" capability has been a key goal of the Chinese regulators and industrial users. The Company believes that adoption by regulators will help drive more rapid acceptance by the industrial markets.

SDI and its Chinese partner, Beijing Green Science and Technology Company, have been collaborating with Chinese provincial governments and water supply agencies since 2005 to identify and implement water screening methods. Customer validation results identified the Deltatox([R]) rapid toxicity assay as the preferred choice for an effective and efficient tool for rapidly screening drinking water, industrial process water, and wastewater against thousands of potential contaminants.
