Sequenom Center for Molecular Medicine Announces Launch of MaterniT21™ Noninvasive Prenatal Test for Down Syndrome
Date:10/17/2011

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Sequenom, Inc. (NASDAQ: SQNM), a life sciences company providing innovative genetic analysis solutions, today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Sequenom Center for Molecular Medicine (Sequenom CMM),  launched its noninvasive proprietary MaterniT21 laboratory developed  test (LDT). The MaterniT21 LDT detects a genetic chromosomal anomaly known as Trisomy 21, the most common cause of Down syndrome. The test is now available to physicians upon request in 20 major metropolitan regions across the United States.

A clinical validation study leading to the introduction of the MaterniT21 LDT has been published in the journal Genetics in Medicine.  The results of the multi-center study demonstrated high accuracy, detecting nearly all (99.1%) positive cases of fetal Trisomy 21 with a very low false positive rate. The full results of the multi-center study can be found online at http://journals.lww.com/geneticsinmedicine/.

"As we advance our role in developing and commercializing prenatal diagnostics, we believe this LDT will be a welcomed addition to the testing currently available to the prenatal and maternal care community," said Harry F. Hixson, Jr., Ph.D., Chairman and CEO, Sequenom, Inc. "We believe that the MaterniT21 LDT will provide physicians and their patients with critical new information to help them make better informed decisions about the patients' healthcare and pregnancies."

The MaterniT21 test is indicated for use in pregnant women at high-risk for carrying a fetus with Down syndrome and can accurately test maternal blood as early as 10 weeks of gestation. In the United States, there are an estimated 750,000 such high-risk pregnancies each year.

"The results of this large clinical validation study are extremely promising and t
