Zyvex, the first molecular nanotechnology company, today announced the addition of Randy Schussler as
General Manager of Zyvex Instruments.

Zyvex Hires New General Manager

RICHARDSON, TX | Posted on June 12th, 2007

Schussler has 20 years experience leading the growth of high technology
companies. An accomplished executive with a passion for operational
excellence, his vision and experience have driven profitable, sustained
growth in a variety of enterprises, large and small, around the world.

"We're excited to have Randy here to lead this company," said Zyvex
Founder Jim Von Ehr. "His executive ability, people and planning skills,
and energy level are exactly what we're looking for. He also possesses
outstanding technology development skills and has a proven track record in
growing businesses."

This new position follows directly on the announcement of Zyvex's split
into four companies: Zyvex Instruments, Zyvex Performance Materials, Zyvex
Labs, and Zyvex Asia.

"Our company has always had a reputation for delivering results," said
Von Ehr. "Restructuring the company into four units will allow us to
leverage our strong technical position and focus on individual products,
markets, customers, and new technologies."

Zyvex Instruments, LLC commercializes nanotechnology to address
real-world applications with high growth potential. The company has a
proven seven-year track record of providing tools, instrumentation, and
applications to the semiconductor and advanced research markets. The
company's flagship product, the Zyvex nProber(TM), is an 8-positioner
nanomanipulator system designed and optimized to electrically probe sub-100
nanometer features on the most advanced semiconductor devices. The system
consists of a state-of-the-art Zyvex Nanomanipulator, an FEI Quanta(TM) 200
FEG SEM, an 8-channel DC parametric analyzer, an advanced
anti-contamination system, and custom software to control and integrate
each component.

Zyvex Performance Materials, LLC, which was announced in April,
leverages Zyvex's long-standing reputation as an industry leader in
nanomaterials applications, as well as its existing nanomaterials patents,
proprietary methods, core technologies, and revenue-generating customer
base. The company's NanoSolve(R) products deliver enhanced mechanical and
electrical properties in polymers by selectively incorporating the
intrinsic properties of carbon nanotubes into composite materials for the
Sporting Goods, Aerospace, Defense, and Automotive industries. The company,
which is scaling its business to meet the growing demand for commercial
applications in nanomaterials, is relocating to Columbus, Ohio in order to
be in close proximity to the epicenter of the advanced materials industry.
The company's recently announced General Manager, Thomas Hughes, was
formerly the Chief Operating Officer for Applied Sciences Incorporated and
the General Manager for Pyrograf Products, Incorporated, the manufacturing
affiliate for Applied Sciences.

Zyvex Labs, LLC is engaged in R&D to develop next generation MEMS-based
instruments and to commercialize atomically precise manufacturing. Jim Von
Ehr will personally oversee the management and direction of the group,
which will remain in Richardson, Texas.

Zyvex Asia, LLC, based in Singapore, will provide R&D support to the
Zyvex Group of companies, and commercialize nanotechnology in Asia.

Schussler is the past President of Codekko Software, an early stage
software company which has developed a disruptive technology that increases
the efficiency of servers delivering web applications by 300%. He also
managed the growth of Flextronics' business with two of its largest
customers. He created sustained, profitable growth with one $1.5B+
customer, and started the other customer's business from nothing -- to
achieve several hundred million per year in revenue. Schussler was the
original operations executive at Xtera Communications, a well-funded
telecom startup, growing it to a run rate of $80M per quarter. He drove the
manufacturing operations in the United States, Mexico and China while with
STB/3dfx. The company grew from <$100M to greater than $300M, in less than
three years.

Schussler holds a B.S. in Industrial Engineering from Oregon State
