QUEBEC CITY, March 12, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - TSO3 Inc. ("TSO3") (TSX: TOS), an innovator in sterilization technology for medical devices in healthcare settings, today announced that it will provide additional data to the US Regulatory Agency in support of obtaining 510(k) clearance for its new sterilizer in the US market. The Company had previously responded to questions from the Agency and some of the answers now require additional clarification. The Company will resubmit with the required information as promptly as the new data is available.
"The Agency is seeking additional data to support our superior claims, which will require some more time to collect", stated R.M. (Ric) Rumble, President and CEO of TSO3.

"We believe this to be a timing issue and not one that concerns the inherent science of our technology, however it causes us to resubmit our file when the new data is ready and respond with the full data set requested by the Agency. Based on the performance of the product and all other data available to the Company, we remain extremely confident in our ability to meet the regulatory agency's requirements. As soon as we are able to provide accurate timing on refilling, we will disclose further information", concluded Mr. Rumble.
