-- New Technology May Allow Development of Accurate Blood Test for Common Genetic Disorders Early in Pregnancy --

MENLO PARK, Calif., Jan. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Artemis Health Inc., a privately-held company dedicated to the development of non-invasive prenatal diagnostic tests, today announced that it has acquired a co-exclusive worldwide license from Stanford University to develop cell-free fetal DNA prenatal diagnostic tests based on pioneering research from the lab of Stephen Quake, Ph.D., co-chair of the department of bioengineering and Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator. The license expands Artemis' clinical and research program and will allow the company to develop a non-invasive prenatal blood test that accurately predicts chromosomal and genetic disorders.

"We are thrilled to expand our proprietary prenatal diagnostic platform focused on intact fetal cells to include Dr. Quake's pioneering cell-free fetal DNA analysis," said Lissa Goldenstein, president and chief executive officer of Artemis Health. "We now have two complementary approaches that provide access to vital information found only in fetal DNA, which circulates in the maternal bloodstream. We believe that working in parallel, we will be able to develop non-invasive, safe and effective prenatal blood tests that accurately diagnose genetic disorders without the need for invasive tests like amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling."

This license broadens the research and development programs at Artemis, which have been based primarily on the pioneering work of Dr. Diana Bianchi for the isolation of intact fetal cells from maternal blood for advanced genetic analysis. Under the terms of the agreement, Artemis received a co-exclusive worldwide license to a suite of intellectual property based on Dr. Quake's groundbreaking cell-free fetal DNA analysis research in the field of prenatal diagnostics which was featured in the
