Luminex Corporation Announces Agreement to Acquire GenturaDx
Date:7/9/2012

AUSTIN, Texas, July 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Luminex Corporation (NASDAQ: LMNX) today announced a definitive agreement to acquire privately-held, GenturaDx, a molecular diagnostics company focused on making nucleic acid testing both affordable and practical for any laboratory. GenturaDx is in late stage development of a fully integrated, highly automated, real-time PCR system that employs a single-use cassette for true sample-to-answer workflow. This new system will make rapid, high-quality molecular diagnostics accessible to hospitals and patients worldwide. The integration of Luminex's MultiCode-RTx chemistry with the GenturaDx instrument is expected to result in a market leading system for molecular diagnostic testing.

GenturaDx's patented cartridge design provides automated sample extraction, amplification and detection thereby improving testing throughput, while reducing hands on time, turnaround times and sample handling. The system's user-friendly design delivers the convenience of random access/batch format enabling customers to run a combination of available assays on up to 12 patients' samples simultaneously. The flexibility in throughput, rapid turnaround time and small footprint of the GenturaDx instrument will be unique in the industry when combined with its sample-to-answer workflow. Luminex anticipates commercial availability of a variety of assays for use with this system by early 2014.

"We are excited to have the opportunity to address the needs of a large market by expanding our instrument portfolio and integrating our MultiCode-RTx assays with this innovative platform," said Patrick J. Balthrop, president and CEO of Luminex.
