Apr 11, 2001, 01:00 ET from Caliper Technologies Corp.

    MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 11 /PRNewswire/ --
 Caliper Technologies Corp., (Nasdaq:   CALP) announced today that the company
 has been awarded ISO 9001 certification for the design and manufacturing of
 its chips and reagents. The award of certification followed completion of an
 audit by Underwriters Laboratories Inc., which affirmed that Caliper's chips,
 reagent design and manufacturing processes meet customer product quality
 requirements and service expectations.
     "We are especially proud of this accomplishment, as we voluntarily sought
 and received ISO 9001 certification after only one year of commercial
 manufacturing, " said Dan Kisner, M.D., Caliper's President and Chief
 Executive Officer.  "We believe that ISO 9001 certification is a measure of
 Caliper's ongoing commitment to the delivery of high quality LabChip(R)
 products and of our industry leadership in lab-on-a-chip technology."
     The ISO 9000 series Standards are internationally recognized quality
 management system requirements developed by the International Organization for
 Standardization (ISO).  ISO 9001, the most comprehensive Standard in the ISO
 9000 series, covers design, manufacturing, installation and servicing systems.
 Underwriters Laboratories Inc. is an independent, product safety testing and
 certification organization that has globally tested products for public safety
 and aided in improving quality processes for more than a century.
     Caliper Technologies Corp. is a leader in lab-on-a-chip technology.
 Caliper designs, manufactures, and commercializes LabChip(R) devices and
 systems that enable experiments that ordinarily require laboratories full of
 equipment and people to be conducted on a chip small enough to fit in the palm
 of a child's hand.  The chip contains a network of microscopic channels
 through which fluids and chemicals are moved in order to perform the
 experiment. The LabChip(R) systems are designed to streamline and accelerate
 laboratory experimentation and have potential applicability in a broad range
 of industries including pharmaceuticals, agriculture, chemicals and
 diagnostics. Caliper has established multiple strategic and commercial
 alliances and has built a leading intellectual property estate in microfluidic
 technology.  For more information, please visit Caliper's new web site at
