SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 20, 2006--JMAR Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:JMAR) announced today it has retained Agile Equity, a New York-based investment bank, to evaluate potential partners for its technology product known as BioSentry(TM), a continuous, real-time warning system for detecting and classifying harmful microorganisms in water.

The system has completed successful testing with Princess Cruises, part of Carnival Corporation, one of the largest vacation companies in the world, and with the City of Anaheim, one of California's most populous tourist areas. Earlier this year, JMAR successfully completed water quality tests for Kimpen, S.A. de C.V., Mexico's leading beverage development and manufacturing company. In addition, the Company sold two BioSentry systems to the City of Wichita for drinking water quality and security monitoring in its municipal water plant.

Dr. Neil Beer, JMAR's president and CEO, said: "We are pleased to report activity in a multitude of markets. In addition to the cruise ship industry and homeland security, BioSentry has attracted customers in industry segments such as beverage manufacturing, the pharmaceutical and semiconductor industries, hospital and vision care, among others. This real-time pathogen detection system is ready for the right partner to accelerate sales growth."
