All right. We’re going to go ahead and get started. Welcome to day four of the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference. This morning we have Sequenom and Dr. Harry Hixson, who is Chairman and CEO. Please silent your cell phones and the breakout will be in the Olympic Room.

Harry Hixson Jr.

Thank you, Allen. And thanks very much to J.P. Morgan for inviting us to present here at this the most important healthcare conference of the year. I’m also very pleased to be able to treat you today and to tell you about the outstanding year that Sequenom team had in 2011, and little bit of our plans going forward for 2012 and beyond.

I’d like to remind you that we are going to be making some forward-looking statements and you should carefully read this safe harbor statement as well.

Sequenom is composed of two operating segments, the first is our original genetic analysis business, we sell a MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer, consumable reagents and research use only panels for translational medicine OncoCarta and ADME panel for drug development. The other segment is molecular diagnostics business, which is centered in our Sequenom Center for Molecular Medicine.

I’m very pleased to report that for 2011 our revenues were up approximately 23% over 2010, just to remind you that those are preliminary and unaudited numbers. We are very pleased that in the very adverse environment in 2011 that our genetic analysis business should a 6% growth in revenue for the year and actually each quarter during the year, we were better than the same quarter in the previous year.
