         ABATIX CORP. REPORTS OPERATING RESULTS FOR SECOND QUARTER 2006

     DALLAS, Aug. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ABATIX CORP. (Nasdaq: ABIX) today
announced net sales of $16,956,000 for the second quarter of 2006 increased 6%
from net sales of $16,028,000 in 2005 and net earnings of $384,000 or $.22 per
share for the second quarter of 2006 compared to net earnings of $350,000 or
$.20 per share in 2005. Sales in the first six months of 2006 of $33,562,000
increased 9% from 2005 net sales of $30,754,000 and net earnings of $604,000 or
$.35 per share for the first six months of 2006 compared to net earnings of
$548,000 or $.32 per share in 2005. The increase in sales for 2006 is primarily
attributable to sales in the construction, industrial safety and environmental
markets as the U.S. economy remains strong. The earnings for both the second
quarter and first six months include a change in an accounting estimate related
to health care costs. Based on improved data, the Company reduced its liability
for health care costs in June 2006, increasing net earnings by approximately
$81,000, net of tax of $53,000. In addition to health care costs, the net
earnings were positively impacted by higher gross profits, lower bad debt
expense and lower legal fees. The net earnings were negatively impacted by
higher labor costs related to the increased volume, higher freight costs caused
by increased volume and fuel costs, higher rent primarily related to the
temporary facility and our Dallas operations, costs related to our
Sarbanes-Oxley compliance work and higher interest expense.

     Mr. Terry Shaver, CEO, stated, "As the economy continues to grow or remain
stable, we should continue to see strength and opportunity for growth in our
markets. In addition to top line growth, we also continue to focus on
streamlining our operations and controlling costs. Although there are several
factors that will affect our cost structure in the second half of this year,
most of these factors provide the platform for continued growth beyond 2006."

     Mr. Shaver continued, "As part of our long-term growth strategy, we will be
opening a new facility in Jacksonville, Florida in August. Although this
facility is not expected to be profitable this year, we are excited about our
ability to service the customers in the Southeastern United States on a
permanent basis. Additionally, we moved our Dallas operations, including our
corporate office and the operations of our wholly-owned subsidiary, to a new
facility in July 2006. While there are significant costs related to a move,
including, but not limited to, upgrade of office equipment, new material
handling equipment, and moving expenses, this new facility provides us the room
to grow and to make certain productivity improvements in our warehouse
operations. Finally, the revenue stream in Louisiana does not support the costs
of maintaining our facility. Therefore, we are not renewing the lease for our
temporary facility that expires in early September. We currently estimate the
costs related to closing that facility will not exceed approximately $50,000.
These costs will be expensed in the third quarter 2006."
