GenMark To Show Its All-Electronic, Sample-to-Answer Molecular Diagnostics Platform At The Association For Molecular Pathology Meeting

GenMark Diagnostics Inc., (NASDAQ: GNMK) a leading provider of automated, multiplex molecular diagnostic testing systems, announced today that it will show a prototype of the Company’s NexGen system, an all-electronic fully integrated molecular diagnostics platform, at the Association of Molecular Pathology (AMP) meeting to be held on October 25-27, 2012 in Long Beach, California.

The NexGen platform is a multiplex sample-to-answer system which integrates sample preparation steps including extraction and amplification, together with the company’s proprietary electrochemical detection technology, to enable concurrent detection of multiple molecular targets on a single test cartridge. All necessary reagents are fully incorporated in self-contained test cartridges, with the required fluidic movement enabled by proprietary digital microfluidics technology licensed by the Company earlier this year.

GenMark is also developing an extensive test menu for the NexGen platform which covers a broad range of disease states. With an initial focus on infectious disease, the Company will target both multiplex and less complex test panels where current platform and menu options are very limited. Future NexGen menu will also include test panels for pharmacogenetic, oncology and genetic testing.

“The demonstration of our prototype NexGen system at AMP is a significant milestone which highlights the continued progress of our product development program and supports our goal of commercial launch in late 2013,” commented Hany Massarany, President and CEO of GenMark Diagnostics. “The revolutionary and proprietary combination of electronic detection and digital microfluidics underpins the unique value proposition of our all-digital sample-to-answer NexGen system; a system we believe will redefine industry standards for performance, reliability and ease of use even with the most complex assays.”

For more information regarding the AMP showing of the GenMark NexGen platform, investors should contact GenMark Diagnostics at (760) 448-4358.
