Quebec City, Canada, December 12, 2011 – TSO3 Inc. (“TSO3” or the “Company”) (TSX: TOS) an innovator in low temperature sterile reprocessing solutions for medical devices in healthcare settings, today reported 80% of its initial Canadian customers (125L Ozone Sterilizer users) have agreed to upgrade to the new 3M™ Optreoz™ 125-Z sterilizer by the end of January 2012. These additional 3M sterilizers will be adding to the already installed and revenue generating unit base.

The upgrade is a special promotion offered by TSO3 to its initial customers. It offers a trade-in value when a 125L Ozone Sterilizer is replaced by a 3M™ Optreoz™ 125-Z. At this time, the offer has been extended to Canadian customers only, representing a dozen sterilizers.  TSO3 plans to offer a similar upgrade opportunity to American customers, once the United States commercial clearance is received, representing a potential of some 20 additional sterilizers.

“Customers see the benefit of using their existing sterilizer 125L Ozone Sterilizer to help fund the purchase of a 3M™ Optreoz™ 125-Z”, said R.M. (Ric) Rumble, CEO of TSO3. “We are thrilled by the response of these long term customers and we continue to receive highly satisfied responses on installation of 3M sterilizers”, he concluded.
