FREMONT, Calif., June 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- WaferGen Biosystems, Inc. (OTCBB: WGBS), a leading developer of state-of-the-art genomic analysis systems, today announced that it will present an overview of the company at the annual OneMedForum New York 2011 sponsored by OneMedPlace for emerging healthcare and life science companies June 23-24, 2011.

WaferGen Biosystems, Inc. is a leader in the development, manufacture and sale of state-of-the-art systems for genomic analysis for the life science and pharmaceutical industries.  The company recently closed a $30.6 billion financing of equity and debt with three leading institutional life science investors, Great Point Partners, LLC, Deerfield Management and Merlin Nexus, and certain members of the Board and management.  WaferGen will use the net proceeds from this financing to expand the commercialization capabilities of the company to market its breakthrough SmartChip Real-Time PCR system to penetrate the high-growth genomic analysis segments of the $10 billion genomics market.  

As the next-generation Real-Time PCR platform for the discovery and validation of gene expression patterns (biomarkers) on a single platform, the SmartChip System is ideal for researchers seeking to confirm discoveries made with the growing use of next-generation sequencing.  The platform is designed to provide high-throughput capabilities that can extend research across large panels of genes, and hundreds of samples, at a very reasonable cost. WaferGen and early SmartChip customers have presented recent data results at various scientific conferences including: the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) 102nd Annual Meeting 2011 by the Oncology Division at Stanford University School of Medicine; the 7th Annual CHI microRNA in Human Disease and Development; a technical seminar at Harvard Institutes of Medicine, Harvard Medical School; and 5th International qPCR Symposium and Industrial Exhibition and Applications Workshop.

In addition, the company offers an innovative fee-based service for gene-expression profiling using the SmartChip System.  For additional information, please see http://www.wafergen.com.
