WaferGen to Launch Human MicroRNA Panel for Gene-Expression Profiling of 885 MicroRNA for Its Service Using the SmartChip(TM) Real-Time PCR System
Date:12/16/2009

FREMONT, Calif., Dec. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- WaferGen Biosystems, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: WGBS), a leading developer of state-of-the-art genetic analysis systems, today announced that it will be launching the Human MicroRNA Panel for its innovative service for gene-expression profiling using its SmartChip(TM) Real-Time PCR System. The Human MicroRNA Panel provides the most comprehensive human microRNA panel of 885 microRNAs on a single SmartChip. The company's SmartChip service offers customers the use of its proprietary SmartChip Real-Time PCR system that utilizes pathway-specific gene panels to discover and validate new biomarkers.

"The Human MicroRNA Panel assures that the latest and most comprehensive information is made available to researchers by providing the ability to quantitate 885 microRNAs on a single SmartChip," said David Gelfand, Ph.D., the company's Chief Scientific Officer and one of the pioneers of PCR. "The SmartChip design allows WaferGen to quickly incorporate newly released sequences giving researchers the ability to stay up to date with the latest discoveries."

"By offering SmartChip services, including the Human MicroRNA, we provide early access to our products and a short-term revenue stream prior to commercialization," said Alnoor Shivji, Chairman and CEO, WaferGen.

MicroRNAs are small non-protein-coding single-stranded RNA molecules of 21-23 nucleotides in length that function as negative regulators of gene expression by targeting specific messenger RNAs. This either inhibits translation or promotes messenger RNA degradation. Cancer diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment are important potential clinical applications of microRNA profiling. The new Human MicroRNA expression profiling service will use the human genes from the new miRBase version 14.0 sequence database, providing researchers with the latest, up-to-date-sequences.
