Date:5/28/2009

-Latest in Series of Global Distribution Agreements to Make ZyGEM's Lower-Cost, Rapid and Easy-to-Use DNA Extraction Kits Available to Researchers Everywhere-

-ZyGEM Also Announces Issuance of U.S. Patent for its DNA Extraction Technology-

SOLANA BEACH, Calif. and HAMILTON, New Zealand and ANN ARBOR, Mich., May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- ZyGEM Corp. Ltd. today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Rubicon Genomics, Inc. to incorporate ZyGEM's advanced enzymatic nucleic acid extraction technology into Rubicon's pre-analytical platform products designed to significantly improve the performance of DNA and RNA analytical instruments. The agreement, which will initially focus on diagnostic single-cell whole genome amplification kits, has the potential to be expanded to include products for broader research and diagnostic applications.

ZyGEM's technology uses a proprietary thermophilic enzyme to extract DNA from samples using a single closed-tube system. ZyGEM's approach significantly reduces the time and cost of DNA extractions while simplifying laboratory workflow, minimizing error, reducing the risk of contamination, ensuring sample integrity and facilitating extractions from trace samples. It is easily adaptable for use with virtually all off-the-shelf laboratory automation systems. The technology can be specifically formulated for use with a wide range of different sample types without the need for further purification. ZyGEM's technology has been validated for use in highly regulated applications including forensic analysis.

"ZyGEM's unique temperature-controlled DNA extraction technology provides important advantages for the analysis of DNA and RNA, and we are delighted to partner with Rubicon in our drive to make our technology widely available for diverse research and clinical applications," said Paul Kinnon, CEO of ZyGEM. "This new agreement for private-label DNA extractio
