Date:2/6/2012

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- AltheaDx announced today that it has achieved authorized customer service provider (CSP) status in Ion Torrent's new service provider program.  The CSP certification formalizes AltheaDx's extensive training and testing under the guidance of Ion Torrent personnel to produce the highest quality sequence data.

Ion Torrent has revolutionized DNA sequencing through their pioneering use of semiconductor technology and simple chemistry instead of light as an intermediary signal. Ion Torrent technology translates the chemical signals into digital information, massively increasing the speed and decreasing the cost of DNA sequencing, thus enabling applications in nucleic acid-based biomarker discovery and clinical trial support that have been heretofore unachievable.

Francois Ferre, Ph.D., CEO of AltheaDx commented that "Implementation of next-generation sequencing is a natural addition to AltheaDx's suite of nucleic acid-based testing services, where for the past 14 years we have supported our pharma partners in over 450 studies.  Furthermore, the speed and ease with which we can develop and validate new customized assay designs using the Ion Personal Genome Machine (PGM™) has completely changed our approach to supporting their translational biomarker development efforts." 

Joe Monforte, Ph.D., CSO, of AltheaDx added, "We are excited about the evolution of NGS platforms and their specific utility in the molecular pathology lab setting.  We are already implementing this platform for use in clinical studies. The fact that LIFE has laid out a diagnostic path for the Ion Torrent device means that we can now push ahead several of our companion diagnostic programs based on NGS."

Maneesh Jain, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at Ion Torrent indicated that "AltheaDx was among our first early access sites and now we are very pleased to have them on board not just as
