WESTERN STAR REPORTS STOCK PURCHASE UNDER BUY-BACK PLAN

 LAKE OSWEGO, Ore., June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Western Star Inc. (NASDAQ: WTAR), designer and marketer of specialty medical laboratory automation and data management software, announced that it had purchased 75,363 shares of its common stock under its buy-back plan announced in December 1992. Under the buy-back plan, the company can purchase up to $200,000 of its common stock at prevailing market prices in private transactions or in the over-the-counter market.
 Western Star Inc. designs, sells and services proprietary blood bank, pathology and quality control data management systems for IBM and IBM-compatible personal computers linked in local and wide area networks. Combined with cost-effective, easy-to-use PCs, Western Star's software family completely automates the data management of a blood bank or pathology laboratory.
 The LifeLine blood bank system is particularly well-suited to manage "look back" donor tracing, blood inventory and autologous blood donors (i.e. blood donated by oneself for one's own later use), key elements in the control of AIDS, hepatitis and other serious diseases that can be transmitted through the blood supply. StarPath automates the histology, cytology, surgical pathology and autopsy sections of the pathology lab. The StarQuality system provides a comprehensive, flexible solution for effective laboratory quality-control programs. To date, 243 LifeLine, 76 StarPath and 36 StarQuality systems have been installed.
