Lockheed Martin and ZyGEM Accelerate DNA Identification for Law Enforcement, Homeland Security and Defense Communities
Date:9/22/2010

TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) and ZyGEM Corp. Ltd. today are unveiling a new DNA analysis system that has potential to transform how law enforcement, homeland security and defense communities use DNA-based identification in support of their missions.

The prototype, called RapI.D.™, will be previewed at a 2010 Biometric Consortium Conference special session on Rapid DNA. The day-long session is sponsored by the FBI's Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) division.

"Our law enforcement, homeland security and defense communities face a significant challenge in how quickly they can confirm an individual's identity," said John Mears, director, Lockheed Martin Biometric Solutions. "Our goal with the RapI.D.™ sample-to-answer DNA analysis device is to transform today's DNA identification process from one that takes a great deal of training, sophisticated equipment and days or weeks to complete, into an affordable, on-site process that takes less than an hour."

Developed in collaboration with ZyGEM as a Lockheed Martin Technology Innovation Initiative, RapI.D.™ leverages the latest in microfluidic research and development to accelerate the DNA identification process—essentially building a laboratory on a small, single chip that reduces the processing steps and time needed for analysis. The RapI.D. ™ platform is currently in prototype at ZyGEM's Charlottesville, Va., MicroLab laboratories, with a Beta version expected to be released for testing in select laboratories early next year.

"ZyGEM's MicroLab technology has been developed with the goal of dramatically reducing today's complex analytic
