Further Advancements Made in the Development of an Improved Method For Rape Kit Testing Using Pressure BioSciences' Patented Pressure Cycling Technology (PCT)
Date:4/4/2013

SOUTH EASTON, Mass., April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pressure BioSciences, Inc. (OTCQB: PBIO) ("PBI" or the "Company") today announced that scientists from Florida International University ("FIU") reported further advancements in their goal to develop an improved method for rape kit testing based on PBI's patented pressure cycling technology (PCT) platform.  The data were presented at the recent annual scientific meeting of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences ("AAFS").

Ms. Deepthi Nori , a graduate student in the laboratory of Dr. Bruce McCord (Associate Director of FIU's International Forensic Research Institute and principal investigator of the study), presented encouraging results from their studies of the application of PCT to improve rape kit testing.  Their method is based on the unique ability of PCT to break open and release DNA from one type of cell contained in the rape kit swab (e.g., sperm cell from the perpetrator) while leaving a second type of cell in the swab intact (e.g., epithelial cell from the victim).  The resulting unique DNA profile of the sperm can then be compared to the millions of DNA profiles contained in various DNA databases around the world in an attempt to determine the identity of the perpetrator.

In a separate presentation, Dr. Pero Dimsoski , a post-doctoral researcher in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at FIU, reported on a novel cell capture method that, when used in combination with PCT, could potentially allow a greater number of the sperm cells in the rape kit sample to be available for testing, and fewer epithelial cells from the victim, resulting in an even better DNA profile of the perpetrator.  It is believed that a better profile of the perpetrator's DNA should lead to more rapid identifications, which should lead to an increase in arrests and succe
