WaferGen Bio-systems and QIAGEN KK Sign Agreement for Co-Marketing in Japan
Date:2/19/2013

FREMONT, Calif., Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- WaferGen Bio-systems, Inc. (OTCBB: WGBS) announced today a co-marketing agreement with QIAGEN KK – a subsidiary of QIAGEN N.V.– for the joint promotion of certain products in Japan in the areas of genomics platforms such as Next-Gen sequencing (NGS) and qPCR.  With the joint offering, customers will be able to seamlessly plan and execute complex research projects involving molecular biomarker discovery with NGS, where WaferGen's SmartChip will offer a powerful platform for high-throughput qPCR-based target validation.  The purpose of the commercial relationship is to help life science researchers accelerate the process of developing markers that are potential candidates for molecular diagnostics by adding WaferGen's SmartChip solution to facilitate biomarker validation.  Further customer-facing synergies will be achieved by offering QIAGEN's PCRarrays on the SmartChip and subsequently compatible NGS panels from QIAGEN.

Stephane Perrey , President of QIAGEN KK stated: "We are looking forward to expanding our portfolio of life science offerings in Japan through the co-marketing of WaferGen's high-throughput qPCR solution.  There is a substantial customer need to ramp up discovery efforts through targeted screening and confirmation, and our integrated approach will provide one-stop shopping for a variety of academic and industrial clients.  We will be able to guide customers through the series of steps necessary for an effective biomarker discovery and validation program, by providing both the instrumentation and assays necessary for the accomplishment of their scientific goals.  We have successfully evaluated WaferGen's SmartChip System, and we believe that it can play an important role in our comprehensive product offering."
