Jena / Birkenfeld, January 25th, 2006

On January 23th, 2006, CyBio AG, Jena, and STRATEC Biomedical Systems
AG, Birkenfeld, signed a cooperation agreement at "LabAutomation",
one of the most important laboratory automation fairs, in Palm
Springs, California, USA. The object of this contractual agreement is
the non-exclusive sale by CyBio of systems of STRATEC's "Robion"
brand. These systems are being designed and manufactured by STRATEC
for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sector and will be sold
worldwide by CyBio under its own name.

The fully automated systems designed and manufactured by STRATEC will
initially supplement CyBio's liquid handling portfolio with a
flexible pipetting platform, thus expanding CyBio's range of
applications for the life science industry. This cooperation will
enable STRATEC to benefit from CyBio's established global sales
network and will thus save it from having to build up its own costly
sales organization.

In view of this development, on January 20th, 2006 STRATEC Biomedical
Systems AG increased its existing shareholding in its new sales
partner, CyBio, by 6.250% from 4.875% to 11.125% by means of an
off-market transfer placement.
