Operator

Good day, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to Cepheid's 2012 Second Quarter Conference Call. My name is Keisha, and I'll be your operator for today. [Operator Instructions] As a reminder, this conference is being recorded for replay purposes. I will now like to hand the conference over to Ms. Jacquie Ross, Cepheid's Investor Relations. Please proceed.

Jacquie Ross

Thank you, Keisha, and welcome to Cepheid's 2012 Second Quarter Conference Call. On the call today are John Bishop, Chief Executive Officer; and Andrew Miller, Chief Financial Officer. Today's conference call is being broadcast live through an audio webcast and the replay of the call will be available later today at www.cepheid.com.

During this call, Cepheid will make forward-looking statements including guidance as to future operating results. Because such statements deal with future events, actual results may differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statement. Additional information concerning factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statement can be found in Cepheid's annual report on Form 10-K, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and other filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission as well as in today's press release.
