Cepheid Announces European Release of Improved Test for BCR-ABL Chromosomal Translocation Associated With Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML)
Date:6/17/2009

Oncology Test Further Highlights Broad Market Applicability of GeneXpert System

SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cepheid (Nasdaq: CPHD) today announced the release of its improved Xpert(R) BCR-ABL Monitor test to be marketed as a CE IVD product under the European Directive on In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices. With improved time-to-results, the test now detects the BCR-ABL chromosomal translocation in about 2 hours as compared to 2.5 hours for the original product release. The test is intended to aid European clinicians in the monitoring of patients with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML). The test runs on Cepheid's GeneXpert(R) System, the world's leading on-demand molecular diagnostic platform.

"The GeneXpert System is capable of producing unheard of sensitivity levels for a molecular system - a potential key benefit in monitoring minimal residual disease," said John Bishop, Cepheid's Chief Executive Officer. "Similar to our recently announced test for Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Xpert BCR-ABL Monitor uses nested PCR, a critical amplification process possible only within a fully closed integrated molecular sample prep/test system. We will continue to extend the many unique benefits of the GeneXpert System across multiple markets and testing applications."

Worldwide, CML affects 1 to 2 people per 100,000 annually.(1) The Europe Against Cancer Program practice guidelines, for management of patients with CML, call for use of quantitative Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) assays during the initial workup of patients with chronic phase CML, and in monitoring for minimal residual disease. Patients may have their blood tested as often as four times a year.
