PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y. -- April 4, 2013

Pall Corporation (NYSE:PLL), a global leader in filtration, separation and
purification, today confirmed plans for a state-of–the-art Life Sciences
Centre of Excellence at its new Harbourgate site in Portsmouth in the United
Kingdom (UK). The Centre of Excellence (COE), which will open in mid 2013,
will offer a full suite of capabilities including cell culture, purification,
analytical solutions, protein characterization and microbiological tools. This
latest COE will complement recently announced Life Sciences Centres in the
United States (Westborough, Massachusetts and Menlo Park, California) as well
as investments previously announced in China, Singapore and India.

“The announcement of Pall’s new Portsmouth Centre of Excellence provides
another example of our commitment to meeting the diverse needs of our Life
Sciences customers across the globe,” said Yves Baratelli, president, Pall
Life Sciences. "Portsmouth represents an important Life Sciences hub for Pall.
By upgrading and expanding our capabilities at the site, we are not only
enhancing our ability to service our customers, but also creating a
multi-disciplinary and responsive environment in which Pall scientists and
engineers can thrive and innovate.”

The new Portsmouth COE will include a dedicated 4000 m² scientific area with a
connected walkway to another recently opened facility that houses an
additional 2000 m² for Life Sciences technical support and training, R&D
engineering and product management. Manufacturing and test areas will remain
at the current Walton Road site in Portsmouth.

In addition to customer service support, COE offerings will include the
development, testing and validation of a wide range of products that now form
part of Pall's portfolio. There also will be an extensive range of scale-up
technology on hand for applying industry-leading standards to match demands
for fully representative and rapid drug development.
