WaferGen Reports Third Quarter 2011 Financial Results and Announces New Commercialization Strategy
Date:11/21/2011

FREMONT, Calif., Nov. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- WaferGen Biosystems, Inc. (OTCBB:WGBS), an emerging genomic analysis company, today reported financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011 and announced a revised plan to commercialize and increase adoption of its SmartChip System.

"During the third quarter of 2011 we implemented a new commercial strategy to address the rapidly changing needs of the Life Sciences Research Market and to better anticipate future needs of researchers.  We have decided to invest significantly in scientific resources focused on a strategy to engage an array of key opinion leaders in our target market, enabling the profiling and validation of high-value genomic targets," said Mona Chadha, WaferGen's Chief Operating Officer.

"With the advent of next-generation sequencing into the life science marketplace in 2007, there has been a dramatic increase in the amount of genomic content that is available to researchers beyond what other genomic technologies have generated.  However, there is an equally dramatic and rapidly growing unmet need to validate and confirm the results of this sequencing information to find clinically relevant biomarkers.  In particular, the data from RNAseq experiments, in which researchers are quantifying gene expression levels, is well suited to the high throughput validation of the SmartChip platform.  This ability to accurately make quantitative genome measurements is an integral tool in enabling researchers to verify the results coming from next-generation sequencers.  Once verified, this content creates a larger, longer term opportunity for the Company as it significantly increases the ability of researchers to validate high value genomic targets for their ultimate use in developing new/improved drugs and diagnostic tests."

"Using the SmartChip platform, we can study many genes simultaneously on multiple samples with a single chip to test the s
