Caliper Awarded Additional Task Order for EPA ToxCast Program
Date:5/14/2010

HOPKINTON, Mass., May 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Caliper Life Sciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: CALP), a leading provider of tools and services for drug discovery and life sciences research, today announced that its Caliper Discovery Alliances and Services (CDAS) unit has been awarded a new funding commitment for $2.9 million under its contract with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the EPA's ToxCast screening program.  Together with an initial Phase II task order awarded in November 2009, this new task order increases the cumulative funding Caliper has been awarded under Phase II of the ToxCast program to $4.7 million.

"Phase II of the ToxCast program will involve screening another 700 environmental compounds through a wide set of assays. We expect to begin the Phase II effort within the next several months after the Phase II comp
