Date:9/15/2011

FREMONT, Calif., Sept. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- WaferGen Biosystems, Inc. (OTCBB: WGBS), a leading developer of state-of-the-art genomic analysis systems, today announced that biotech industry leader Dr. Paul Schimmel, well known for his work in biophysical chemistry and molecular biology, has joined the WaferGen Scientific Advisory Board.

Dr. Schimmel has been the Ernest and Jean Hahn Professor of Molecular Biology and Chemistry and a member of the Skaggs Institute for Chemical Biology at the Scripps Research Institute since 1997.

"We welcome Dr. Schimmel's genomics expertise to support the commercialization and further development of our SmartChip System—a comprehensive genomic analysis platform to advance next generation sequencing and ultimately personalized medicine," said Alnoor Shivji, Chairman and CEO.  "Dr. Schimmel's outstanding contributions to the field of biotechnology include founder or founding director of a number of biotechnology companies, of which six became publically traded on the NASDAQ.  We are pleased to add Dr. Schimmel to a growing group of industry experts and thought leaders to support WaferGen's technological and business growth."

"Next generation sequencing and microarray based studies are producing an increasing amount of genomic data," said Dr. Schimmel.  "To develop useful therapies from these data, researchers require a genomic analysis system to screen specific samples over a large number of genes, and to validate large numbers of samples over a selection of gene targets.  The SmartChip System enables researchers to design their biomarker discovery and signature validation studies with a flexibility and low cost not possible with other tools. SmartChip can advance genomic-based therapeutic and diagnostic development to the next level."
