Health Canada's Medical Device Bureau Completes Evaluation of Solos Endoscopic Instruments for Canada

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/14 -- Solos Endoscopy, Inc. (OTC Pink: SNDY) (PINKSHEETS: SNDY), a provider of quality innovative healthcare instruments to hospitals across the United States, is pleased to announce that Health Canada's Medical Device Bureau (MDB) has completed its initial evaluation of certain Solos Endoscopy instruments and has classified its devices as Class II medical devices.

The Medical Device Bureau examined information with respect to the MammoView Dilator Set, MammoView Cytology Retrieval Kit, MammoView Introducer Set, and the Microendoscope Ductoscope. The review was a necessary step in order to determine the appropriate device classification and in turn apply for the Medical Device License with Health Canada. Solos expects to complete the application this week and the Company will await approval for the Medical Device License in the next 30 days. The Company is currently in discussions with Spectrum Medical Market Consultants to act as its regulatory consultant in Canada for its endoscopic instruments including the MammoView® devices.

Solos Endoscopy recently received its ISO 13485:2003 Certification from TUV SUD America. The Certification to ISO 13485:2003 allows Solos Endoscopy to place the CE Mark on the majority of endoscopic instruments including the MammoView® devices, and make it eligible to apply for its Medical Device Registration in Canada.

The Certification Body of TUV America has certified that Solos Endoscopy has established and is maintaining a quality management system that meets the requirements of the European Union and Canada. The Certification comes at the conclusion of a lengthy Audit with TUV SUD America this past Year. The Audit included a comprehensive review of the Solos Endoscopy's Quality Manual and 28 Quality System Procedures for compliance with the international quality system standard ISO 13485:2003, to the European Union's Medical Device Directive (MDD 93/42/EEC) and to the Canadian Medical Device Regulations (SOR/98-282).

Solos Endoscopy has posted its Certificate from TUV America on its website (http://www.solosendoscopy.com/pdf/solos-iso-certification.pdf).
