Miraculins Re-Appoints Pear Healthcare Solutions to Distribute Scout DS(R) to 
Canadian Retail Pharmacy/Grocery Market 
WINNIPEG, MANITOBA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/16/13 -- Miraculins Inc.
(TSX VENTURE:MOM), ("Miraculins" or the "Company") a medical
diagnostic company focused on acquiring, developing and
commercializing diagnostic and risk assessment technologies for unmet
clinical needs, announces today that it has re-appointed Pear
Healthcare Solutions Inc. ("Pear"), a leading provider of in-pharmacy
health screening and education services, as the distributor for the
SCOUT DS(R) Non-Invasive Diabetes Test Technology to the Canadian
retail pharmacy/grocery market. Pear is also the Company's Canadian
distributor for the PreVu(R) Non-Invasive Skin Cholesterol
Point-of-Care (POC) Test to the same market segment.  
Prior to Miraculins' acquisition of the SCOUT DS(R), Pear was
appointed as Canadian distributor for the technology by VeraLight,
Inc. (its previous owner) and had successfully established pilots for
this ground-breaking, non-invasive diabetes test. These included
localized trials with national and regional brand pharmacy/grocery
retailers including Zellers, Costco, Rexall, and PharmaSave. In
addition, Pear has designed a comprehensive CE Module (Continuing
Education) on non-invasive diabetes testing, which has been
recognized by the Canadian Pharmacists Association as accredited
programming, and has also developed a special preparatory program to
ready pharmacists prior to their taking the Certified Diabetes
Educator exam. These programs are offered through Pear's Health
eLearning initiative and online learning portal, which allows
pharmacists to conveniently participate in accredited CEs on such
topics as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and osteoporosis. As a
result, Pear's commitment to national diabetes education and
preventive testing has been significant and unparalleled among
service providers to the industry. 
"Pear has provided excellent representation for Miraculins in
establishing select pilots for PreVu(R), and has clearly demonstrated
its ability to do the same for the SCOUT DS(R) in the Canadian retail
pharmacy sector," said Paul Moreau, Vice President, Sales and
Marketing of Miraculins Inc. "As we move forward with our piloting
and beyond, we are confident Pear has the industry relationships and
segment expertise necessary to build broader distribution for our
non-invasive testing technologies."  
"Based on the positive responses we have received during the pilots
from both retailers and consumers, we are excited about the potential
for national distribution of these non-invasive technologies, and we
look forward to continuing to work in partnership with Miraculins
towards achieving this goal," said Mark Doyle, Vice President of
Sales and Marketing for Pear Healthcare Solutions Inc.

About Miraculins Inc. 
Miraculins is a medical diagnostic company focused on acquiring,
developing and commercializing non-invasive technologies for unmet
clinical needs. A significant number of promising diagnostic
opportunities remain un-commercialized because of the sizable gap
between the discovery stage, when research institutions are typically
involved, and the commercialization stage, when the larger commercial
enterprises become interested. Miraculins has direct experience in
bridging this gap. The Company's PreVu(R) technology is a
revolutionary new coronary artery disease risk assessment technology
that measures cholesterol levels in a patient's skin non-invasively,
painlessly and without the need for fasting. The Company's SCOUT
DS(R) system, is the first non-invasive diabetes screening system
designed to provide a highly sensitive and convenient method for
screening for pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes based on the presence
of diabetes-related biomarkers found in skin. Unlike current
screening methods, a SCOUT DS(R) test requires no blood draw, no
fasting, and no waiting for a lab result. The product has been used
and validated in thousands of patients around the world. The
Company's preeclampsia program is partnered with Alere Inc., one of
the world's largest diagnostic companies. For more information visit
