Transgenomic, Inc. Presents Its Latest Technology at the BIT Life Sciences World DNA and Genome Day Conference, Dalian, China
Date:4/27/2011

OMAHA, Neb., April 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Transgenomic, Inc. (OTC/BB: TBIO) announced today that its President and Chief Executive Officer, Craig Tuttle, had presented the Company's latest results with its ultra-sensitive DNA mutation detection technology, COLD-PCR at BIT Life Sciences' 2nd World DNA and Genome Day Conference, April 25-30th, in Dalian, China. Nine Nobel Laureates were also giving presentations at this meeting.

US Congress designated April 25 as National DNA Day and the month April as Genome Month in celebration of the anniversary of James Watson and Francis Crick's publication of DNA Double Helix Structure.

"It is a great honor to be asked to present the latest developments of our cutting-edge technologies at such a prestigious event," commented Craig Tuttle, Transgenomic's Chief Executive Officer. The presentation was entitled "Ultra-sensitive DNA Mutation Detection: COLD-PCR Applied to Key Cancer Pathway Gene Mutations in Circulating Plasma DNA" and outlined Transgenomic's most recent findings in COLD-PCR assay development. "Our latest results with COLD-PCR demonstrate that we can detect mutations in free circulating tumor DNA in plasma or serum despite the presence of a high background of non-tumor derived wild-type DNA. We believe that this method promises to enable routine, non-invasive screening of plasma or serum samples for early detection of cancer or monitoring of post-treatment remission, relapse or emergence of resistance to therapy."

Tuttle also chaired the conference's session "Breaking Research in Genomics and Diseases."

About COLD-PCR

COLD-PCR is a genetic testing approach that selectively amplifies mutant DNA by recognizing that mutant DNA strands denature at lower temperatures in a PCR reaction than normal DNA. Using this proprietary technique, COLD-PCR amplifies mutated DNA with minimal amplification of the normal DNA. The resultant PCR-amplified fragment can be easily analyzed with a variety of sequencing approaches including Sanger sequencing, Pyrosequencing, real-time PCR or any next generation sequencing technology. Transgenomic has licensed rights to utilize any of these techniques. The enhanced analytic sensitivity of COLD-PCR allows clinicians to use smaller amounts of sample for their genetic analysis and less intrusive sample collection methods such as a blood draw for serum or plasma preparation, urine, fine needle aspirates or bronchial lavage as well as studying mutated DNA in tumors directly. The addition of the Ice COLD-PCR methodology further enhances the sensitivity.
