effective patient treatment and better outcomes."

DLA technology, developed with support from venture capital investors, NSF, DARPA, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), also has the potential to be applied in applications such as patient screening, hospital monitoring, epidemiology and forensics. U.S. Genomics currently has an extremely sensitive and accurate sensor for detection of biological threats in development under the DHS Bioagent Autonomous Network Detector program. Similar precision is required in hospital settings, where regulations may restrict reimbursement for costs associated with certain infections that occur as a result of hospital procedures. DLA has the potential to rapidly and accurately resolve whether a patient who became sick during a hospital stay was infected with a known hospital-based organism, or a strain not previously seen.

"We see tremendous potential for application of DLA technology," Canepa continued. "Working closely with BD on this collaboration, we plan to prioritize development efforts toward the multi-billion dollar infectious disease testing market. Further, the flexibility of the DLA technology to address a wide range of sample types creates future opportunities for U.S. Genomics to expand into significant new application areas, such as bio- security, bio-surveillance, and environmental and food safety testing."

About U.S. Genomics, Inc.

U.S. Genomics is pioneering single molecule biology technologies for diagnostics and biodefense applications by combining advanced microfluidics, optical engineering, and novel labeling strategies. Using its DNA mapping technology, the Company is developing sophisticated biological sensors for the detection and identification of pathogens and biomarkers in the air and other biologically relevant materials. The Company's biodefense focus on airborne pathogens has been funded in part by contracts from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science a
