Arrayit Corporation Completes Proteomics Platform Installation And Training At The National Institutes Of Health

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 20, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Arrayit Corporation (OTCBB:ARYC) has completed installation and technical training of its proprietary microarray platform at the National Institute of Mental Health, National Institutes of Health, in Rockville, Maryland. In 2010, the NIH will invest more than $31.2 billion in medical research for the American people through 50,000 competitive grants to 325,000 researchers at 3,000 universities, hospitals, companies, medical schools and scientific institutions in the United States and around the world. The mission of the NIH is to enhance human health, lengthen life, and reduce the burdens of illness and disability by making fundamental scientific advances.

Arrayit microarray technology empowers NIH researchers to rapidly detect in a highly sensitive manner human cytokines, a large class of proteins involved in immune system function. Cytokines have been implicated in major human diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, depression, schizophrenia and Alzheimer's Disease. Arrayit microarrays, tiny devices containing cytokine protein binding agents, could facilitate treatments and eventual cures for cytokine-related illnesses by allowing clinicians to quantitatively measure and correlate cytokine levels in patients afflicted with these illnesses. The NIH purchases Arrayit microarray instruments, hardware, software, reagents and consumable products. Arrayit offers a competitive advantage over other companies by combining speed, sensitivity, flexibility and cost-effectiveness in a single cytokine detection platform.

Arrayit CEO and Chairman Rene Schena states, "We believe that treatments and cures for autoimmune and neuropsychiatric diseases will be discovered by first deciphering the fundamental molecular basis of each illness. Arrayit is pleased to install this leading edge technology at the National Institutes of Health and train research scientists in furtherance of these important goals."
