MINNEAPOLIS, June 15, 2017 — Skyline Medical Inc. (NASDAQ:SKLN) (“Skyline” or “the Company”), producer of the FDA-approved STREAMWAY® System for automated, direct-to-drain medical fluid disposal, announces that its European Authorized Representative, Emergo Europe B.V., has notified the Dutch Competent Authority that the Company’s STREAMWAY System meets all requirements and can now be affixed with the CE mark and marketed in 32 European countries.

“Receipt of the CE mark is an important milestone for Skyline Medical and we are very excited to be able to expand the reach of our STREAMWAY System to Europe,” said Dr. Carl Schwartz, chief executive officer of Skyline Medical. “We have already held preliminary discussions with a few European distributors, and with the CE mark in hand we can now advance those negotiations while beginning dialogues with others.

About the STREAMWAY System

Skyline’s revolutionary, FDA-cleared STREAMWAY System is the first true direct-to-drain fluid disposal system designed specifically for medical applications, such as radiology, endoscopy, urology and cystoscopy procedures. It connects directly to a facility’s plumbing system to automate the collection, measurement and disposal of waste fluids. As of March 31, 2017, Skyline Medical customers have installed 103 STREAMWAY Systems in 52 facilities across 20 states, and in Canada.

The STREAMWAY minimizes human intervention for better safety and improves compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and other regulatory agency safety guidelines. It also provides unlimited capacity for increased efficiency in the operating room, which leads to greater profitability. Furthermore, the STREAMWAY eliminates canisters to reduce overhead costs and provides greater environmental stewardship by helping to eliminate the approximately 50 million potentially disease-infected canisters that go into landfills annually in the U.S. For a demonstration please visit or call 855-785-8855.
