BOHEMIA, N.Y., May 5, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Scientific Industries, Inc. (OTCBB:SCND) has been advised by the Global Distribution Services Group of Fisher Scientific Company L.L.C., its principal customer and distributor for more than 30 years, of a change in the distributor's marketing of the Company's products. While Fisher will continue to offer the Company's products, including the Vortex-Genie 2 Mixer, it will discontinue the products' current catalogue number, note that the number has been discontinued, and assign a different catalogue number to the product. It will also exclude the product from future printed catalogues. The Company believes that Fisher intends to market and promote a competitive private label product. As a result of the change, Fisher will no longer purchase products from the Company for inventory. All Scientific Industries' sales to Fisher customers will be filled by direct shipment. Sales to Fisher of the Company's products, predominantly the Vortex-Genie 2 Mixer and related accessories, accounted for approximately 23% and 24% of the Company's revenues for the year ended June 30, 2005, and the nine months ended March 31, 2006, respectively.
