September 1, 2013

Miraculins Inc., a medical diagnostic company focused on acquiring, developing and commercializing diagnostic tests and risk assessment technologies for unmet clinical needs, announces today the 20 store locations where H-E-B, the #1 food retailer in South and Central Texas and the State’s largest private company, will be conducting a pilot launch of the Company’s PreVu® Non-Invasive Skin Cholesterol Point of Care (POC) Test this fall. This is the first such launch of the product into the United States.

The H-E-B stores offering the PreVu® POC Test to qualifying customers approved by a non-site Licensed Practitioner will be located in San Antonio, Austin, Kerrville, Edinburg, Corpus Christi, Pflugerville, San Marcos, Harlingen, Georgetown, Houston and Friendswood.

The PreVu® POC Test will be offered as part of H-E-B’s popular Second Saturday Screening program, where certified screeners from the H-E-B Pharmacy team offer cardiovascular risk assessment tests to customers on the second Saturday of the month from 9 am – 2 pm. The PreVu® POC Test will be selectively offered as part of this clinical community outreach, along with other risk assessment testing, including blood serum cholesterol, during the months of October, November and December.

“We are very pleased with the location of the stores for the upcoming pilot,” said Paul Moreau, Vice President, Sales andMarketing for Miraculins Inc. “They provide us with a strong diversity of cities, towns and communities within the southern/central portion of the state, and allow us access to a mosaic population base that runs from Austin all the way down to the Texas/Mexico border.”

Pursuant to the agreement, on the completion of the Phase One launch H-E-B will have the option to expand PreVu® POC testing to additional H-E-B locations commencing in 2014.
