Opsens announces an order from a European medical customer



    QUEBEC CITY, Nov. 21 /CNW Telbec/ - Opsens Inc. (TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE:
OPS) ("Opsens") announces an order awarded through one of its distributors for
over $400,000 from a global leader in medical technology. This order is
related to the supply of LifeSens OEM boards with their patented White-Light
Polarization Interferometry (WLPI) technology.
    This additional recognition follows the March 22, 2007 and August 13,
2007 press releases. This order is the first phase in a two-year supply
agreement between the company's European distributor and the global leader in
medical technology. The new order meets short term customer needs and is
likely to generate additional orders in future.
    "The customer's appreciation of the LifeSens miniature version validates
Opsens' strategy to attack the medical device market. Opsens' OEM signal
conditioners and the 0.4 mm miniature optical pressure sensors meet our
clients' needs not only in system accuracy, but also in size and in cost. In
addition, Opsens continues to increase its high-potential customer list within
the medical industry," said Claude Belleville, vice-president of the medical
sector at Opsens.
    Opsens' miniature pressure sensor permits the reduction of catheter size
which represents a considerable advantage over conventional systems. With this
size reduction ability, the sensor allows for less invasive catheterization
practices, makes once impossible, practices possible, provides extended
capabilities for new applications, and at the same time delivers high fidelity
pressure measurement. The advantages inherent to optical sensors, such as the
immunity to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and radiofrequency interference
(RFI), make it the only sensor safe for magnetic resonance and electro-surgery
environments which are increasingly used in medical practices. The single-use
optical pressure sensor will also create recurring revenue in the medical
industry.
