Arrayit Corporation Taps Former IVAX Diagnostics Executive To Build Strategic Partnerships

Arrayit Corporation (OTCBB: ARYC), a leader in life sciences and healthcare technology, announces today that the company has hired an industry expert to identify strategic partnerships for the commercialization of OvaDx®, the company’s pre-symptomatic test for ovarian cancer.

Arrayit Corporation and its subsidiary Arrayit Diagnostics, Inc. have hired Duane M. Steele to forge strategic alliances with leading molecular diagnostics and pharmaceutical companies. Mr. Steele brings more than 30 years of industry experience to the Arrayit team. Chairman and CEO Rene Schena states, “Mr. Steele’s breadth and depth of diagnostics experience perfectly complements the pioneering science embodied in the OvaDx® product.”

OvaDx® uses a panel of approximately 100 proteomic biomarkers to detect ovarian cancer in pre-symptomatic and post-symptomatic patients by leveraging Arrayit’s patented microarray platform to deliver definitive serum-based test results. The Arrayit platform is well-suited for many types of molecular diagnostic applications in oncology, neurodegenerative disease and companion diagnostics.

Mr. Steele previously served as Vice President of Business Development of IVAX Diagnostics, Inc. (AMEX:IVD) and as COO of Diamedix Corporation, its wholly owned in vitro diagnostics subsidiary based in Miami, Florida. Until 2008, IVAX Diagnostics was majority controlled by Teva Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:TEVA), a $49 billion market cap pharmaceutical company headquartered in Israel. His experience includes extensive involvement in domestic and international marketing, research and development, and manufacturing. At Kallestad Diagnostics, Inc., Mr. Steele was responsible for all international operations, where he established subsidiary operations in Canada, Germany, Switzerland, the UK and Australia.
