Richard T. Schumacher, President and CEO of PBI, commented: "In addition to our strong financial results, we reported a number of operational and technical achievements during the third quarter as well. These included publications and/or presentations on the advantages of our patented Pressure Cycling Technology ("PCT") Platform in the forensic, biological threat, infectious diseases, and contaminated food products areas, as well as in tests used to study the cause, prevention and treatment of disease. In addition, it was recently announced that Cole Parmer, one of the largest and best known distributors of laboratory equipment and consumables worldwide, has become a distributor of the PBI Shredder SG3 System."
Mr. Schumacher continued: "A number of important goals remain for 2012. Among these are eliminating our short-term investor debt; securing at least one additional strategic distribution partner; continuing with revenue increases and cost reductions; and making measurable progress on the development of what we believe are new, game-changing, PCT-based instruments. But most importantly, we need to improve our financial condition. Based on our accomplishments to date, we believe we will achieve success in these areas during the 2012 fourth quarter, and that this success, together with the achievements previously reported, will have a positive effect on the value of PBI for all of our shareholders."

Forward Looking Statements
Statements contained in this press release regarding the Company's intentions, hopes, beliefs, expectations, or predictions of the future are "forward-looking'' statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward looking statements include the estimated size of the life sciences sample preparation market; the Company's plans and ability to secure sufficient financing to support working capital needs; statements related to the strong financial and operating results of the third quarter of 2012, and the nine months ended September 30, 2012, and the Company's expectations of its financial results for the fourth quarter of 2012 and for the year ending December 31, 2012; statements regarding our strategic partnerships and the likelihood that they will lead to future sales in 2012 and to the continued growth in revenue from the sale of PCT products generally; statements that the increase in revenues and reduction in costs will continue into the fourth quarter of 2012 and beyond; that we will report success on the remaining goals for 2012, including the future PCT-based instruments, and that these successes will result in a positive effect on the value of PBI for all shareholders; and that these new, future instruments will be "game-changing". These statements are based upon the Company's current expectations, forecasts, and assumptions that are subject to risks, uncertainties, and other factors that could cause actual outcomes and results to differ materially from those indicated by these forward-looking statements. These risks, uncertainties, and other factors include, but are not limited to: the Company's financial results for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012 may not necessarily be indicative of future results as future revenues may not meet expectations due to the possible failure of the Company's products to achieve commercial acceptance, changes in customer's needs and technological innovations, expenses may be higher than anticipated due to unforeseen costs or cost increases, and the Company may not secure sufficient capital to implement its plans; possible difficulties or delays in the implementation of the Company's strategies that may adversely affect the Company's continued commercialization of PCT; and the Company may not be successful in selling its PCT product line because scientists may not perceive the advantages of PCT over other sample preparation methods. Further, the Company will require additional working capital to fund its operations beyond the end of December, 2012 and there can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in obtaining such financing on acceptable terms, if at all. Additional risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by these forward-looking statements are discussed under the heading "Risk Factors" in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, and other reports filed by the Company from time to time with the SEC. The Company undertakes no obligation to update any of the information included in this release, except as otherwise required by law.
