Date:2/22/2011

PLEASANTON, Calif. and STATE COLLEGE, Pa., Feb. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- IntegenX Inc. and SoftGenetics LLC today announced that their GeneMarker HID forensics software will power the data analysis feature of IntegenX's Apollo 200 RapidHIT DNA Profiling system for human identification. The incorporated software will enable the integrated system to produce unique human DNA profiles in standardized formats compatible with human identification database search systems.

IntegenX is developing the Apollo 200 RapidHIT DNA Profiling system for deployment with law enforcement agencies and the US Departments of Defense and Homeland Security. The system automatically prepares, processes, and sequences DNA from cheek swabs and other suitable human tissue samples. With the incorporation of GeneMarker HID software, the integrated system will automate and speed up the production of critical information for border security operations, crime scene analysis, paternity and other kinship determinations, and other human identification needs.

"Combining SoftGenetics' unique human identity analysis software with IntegenX's revolutionary microfluidic chips will enable us to greatly expand the utility of DNA detection for both existing and new applications," said Stevan Jovanovich, chief executive officer of IntegenX. "The integration of GeneMarker HID represents a giant step forward in our Apollo 200 RapidHIT DNA Profiling system development and commercialization program."

"By incorporating GeneMarker HID into IntegenX's sample-to-answer offering, operators can use a trusted product in a new and rapidly evolving environment," said John Fosnacht, vice president of marketing and co-founder of SoftGenetics. "We are pleased that IntegenX has chosen GeneMarker HID to include in its new rapid DNA identification system and leveraging the knowledge of both SoftGenetics and the forensics labs that rely on its ability to analyze forensic data every day around the world."
