Vision-Sciences Awarded GSA Contract Agreement For Endoscopy Devices

ORANGEBURG, N.Y., Oct. 4, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vision-Sciences, Inc. (Nasdaq:VSCI) ("Vision-Sciences") announced today that it has been awarded a Federal Supply Schedule ("FSS") Contract from the General Services Administration ("GSA") for its flexible endoscopy product lines. The contract period is from October 15, 2010 – October 14, 2015. This GSA contract enables access to the company's technology for all federal healthcare facilities, including the Veterans Administration, Indian Health Service, and Department of Defense facilities.

"We consider the GSA contract an important step for the company," stated Warren Bielke, Interim CEO. "We believe our technologies are uniquely suited to provide cost-effective, high performance flexible endoscopy solutions to our government clients in the VA Health Systems and other government healthcare facilities."

The GSA contract covers the Vision-Sciences 4000 and 5000 Series flexible endoscopy lines. The 5000 Series line features advanced, digital, video-based endoscopes that contain the world's smallest diameter insertion tubes with a high resolution CCD camera at the tip of the scope, offering sharp, vibrant, full screen imaging. The 5000 Series video endoscopes also feature pioneering functional aspects, such as an integrated light emitting diode (LED) for illumination, and a compact, portable digital processing unit. The 4000 Series fiberscopes contain state-of-the-art fiber optic imaging, small diameter insertion tubes, and portability options, through the use of a battery-powered light source. Both lines utilize the company's pioneering EndoSheath ® Technology, which combines flexible endoscopic technology with a sterile, disposable microbial barrier, providing healthcare facilities with a solution to meet the growing need for safe, efficient, and cost-effective flexible endoscopy.
