Bio-AMD, Inc. (“BioAMD” or the “Company”) (OTCBB: FXFL) announces that it has name changed to Bio-AMD, Inc. from Flex Fuels Energy, Inc. to reflect a name that recognizes our core business area, as carried out by our 63% owned subsidiary Bio-AMD Limited.
Bio-AMD Limited is currently in various stages of developing and commercialising three core technologies integral to its planned range of hand held, Point Of Care (“POC”), medical diagnostic devices aimed at the fast growing POC market:
DSR — a Digital Strip Reader able to read existing lateral flow test strips;
COAG — a Prothrombin Time (PT) blood coagulation monitor which has recently completed proof of concept testing; and

The Company believes that the name change will enable improved communication of its current core business message to the market and engagement with the investment community.
