SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 10, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Arrayit Corporation (OTCBB:ARYC), a leader in life sciences and healthcare technology, reports today a strong surge in customer demand for the company's leading edge life sciences microarray instruments. On Friday May 7th, the company quoted 17 instruments representing $1.2M in total revenue. The increase coincides directly with the first deliveries of the new Arrayit 2010 catalog sent by mail to 11,000 life sciences professionals worldwide.

Arrayit Corporation CEO Rene Schena stated, "We are pleased by the positive and immediate customer response. Our commitment to life sciences instrumentation is an important driver for revenues growth in 2010." 

Arrayit's life sciences instruments empower scientists and clinicians to explore fundamental challenges in basic research, agriculture, and medicine, including deciphering the molecular basis of human diseases. Arrayit microarrays are manufactured by depositing nearly invisible spots of genes, proteins, and patient DNAs onto glass substrates, and then reacting the microarrays with labeled samples isolated from living cells and other sources. The microarrays are processed and read using computer-controlled hybridization stations and high-speed fluorescence scanners to produce digital genomic and proteomic data. Arrayit's instruments are "best-in-class" based on unparalleled performance, versatility, and ease-of-use. 

Arrayit Corporation President and Chief Science Officer Mark Schena said, "The widely adopted Arrayit platform with its unique technological attributes, including the proprietary H25K complete human genome chip, provides results that are unrivaled by other platforms. Arrayit microarrays and instruments offer richer content and greater sensitivity than competing platforms, and these attributes have allowed us to discover the world's only definitive pre-symptomatic biomarkers for ovarian cancer and Parkinson's Disease, as well as a new pharmaceutically important pathway in human biology that will be the subject of future announcements."
