Press release date: July 10, 2014

- Disposable Directional ColonoScope Product Expected to be Commercially Available During 1H 2015

DRAPER, Utah - Flexpoint Sensor Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: FLXT), today announced that Haemoband Surgical Ltd. has approved the company for Phase 3.  To complete Phase 3, Flexpoint will deliver 5 screen readers and 60 sensor units including electronic PCB components for demonstration and market evaluation with selected key doctors.

Flexpoint completed Phase 1, consisting of determining if the Bend Sensor could conceptually be used to reliably determine the bending and looping of the colonoscope during procedures, during mid-2013.  The company completed Phase 2, converting concept ideas into working alpha units suitable for initial testing to establish proof of concept and complete initial laboratory trials and conduct early market evaluation, during late 2013.  The company anticipates final delivery of Phase 3 units to occur during the current quarter. 

Phase 4, includes incorporating any changes after market test feedback and supplying sufficient units for clinical trials.  Clinical trials and product registration will occur during the remainder of 2014.

Phase 5, incorporates signing off on final specifications and plans. Final production agreements will be completed during early 2015.  A full product launch is expected in approximately 8-10 months.

Each of these phases will result in payments to Flexpoint from Haemoband.  The contract totals for the deliverables will result in record revenues for the company.

Colin Foster CEO Haemoband Surgical stated, "Phase 1 and Phase 2 outcomes have exceeded our expectations. Haemoband Surgical is confident that this collaboration will create very positive rewards for both companies."

Flexpoint Sensor Systems Inc., has been appointed as principle subcontractor for the project because of their unique expertise in bend sensor technology-based sensors. Haemoband, with assistance of QUB, identified this company as a primary source of applicable technology. A contractor with these skills and experience could not be found in UK or Europe.

The American Cancer Society "Guidelines for the Early Detection of Cancer" recommends, beginning at age 50, people receive a Colonoscopy every 10 years.  There are millions of procedures each year in the US and Europe, a number that is expected to continue to grow as the population continues to age in industrial nations.
