Comment and Outlook

Craig Tuttle, the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer, noted, "Net sales for the third quarter declined slightly from the second quarter of 2009. This decrease is primarily attributable to lower instrument sales in the U.S. as well as an expected quarterly decline in our reference laboratory net sales related to summer vacations in the U.S. We also had two OEM instrument sales that ended up closing in October that were expected in the third quarter. This gives us confidence that fourth quarter net sales will show marked improvement."

Tuttle continued, "We remain heavily engaged in development and validation of our mitochondrial DNA damage assay applications, our licensed NuroPro assays for Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease and our recently announced license for Cold-PCR from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. We have already seen strong interest from potential customers for Cold-PCR and hope to have one or more pharma studies initiated during the fourth quarter. Our beta site trials for our K-Ras mutation detection kit have been completed and this kit, the first of several expected, will be launched shortly."
