NOTE TO EDITORS: The Following Is an Investment Opinion Being Issued by Market Pulse.

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - December 10, 2009) - Market Pulse News Alert for this AM, Stocks to Watch are: Arrayit Corporation (OTCBB: ARYC), Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL), MedClean Technologies Inc. (OTCBB: MCLN) and Dynavax Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: DVAX).

Investors need to be watching Arrayit Corporation (OTCBB: ARYC) this AM! Arrayit Corporation is engaged in the development, manufacture, and marketing of life science technologies and integrated systems for the analysis of genetic variation, biological function, and diagnostics. Arrayit offers a product line of approximately 650 tools to 2,500 laboratories worldwide. The company's products include microarrayers, microarray scanners, DNA and protein microarrays, microarray printing, microarray substrates and slides, microarray instruments, amplification and labeling, purification kits, microarray hardware, buffers and solutions, microarray cleanrooms, books and software, CGH microarrays, and microarray platforms. Arrayit's worldwide business position leverages the company's widely used patented microarray manufacturing platform and revolutionary VIP™ genotyping technology. Nearly every major research center in the world uses Arrayit products including research laboratories, pharmaceutical companies, universities, biotechnology companies, hospitals, government agencies, and nonprofit research organizations. The company is also involved in the import, export, and distribution of industrial and food grade chemicals for plastics, fertilizers, and green energy applications. It has research collaboration with The Parkinson's Institute of Sunnyvale to discover biomarkers for Parkinson's disease. ARYC recently announced that it is developing a microarray-based diagnostic test to detect the H1N1 swine flu virus. The 2009 swine flu outbreak has raised concerns at the CDC and the World Health Organization (WHO). The CDC and WHO believe that the current outbreak poses a pandemic risk because the H1N1 flu virus contains genetic elements from both the swine and human influenza viruses, allowing direct human-to-human transmission without the need for agricultural contact. Arrayit is an exciting and innovative public company that strives to increase shareholder equity by inventing, developing, manufacturing and supplying sophisticated life sciences products and services to an extensive customer base spanning 50 countries. Arrayit is a leader in the field of molecular diagnostics with patented technology that allows the screening and monitoring of up to 80,000 patient samples on a single microscope slide, rather than testing one patient per slide as is currently practiced. Their corporate philosophy is embodied by a highly skilled, multidisciplinary team of investors, business professionals, scientists, engineers and executive and support staff who place shareholder value, product quality, customer service and price competitiveness as their highest priorities. Arrayit empowers decisive strategic advantage and large return on investment for their customers in the research, pharmaceutical, diagnostic, and health care markets! ARYC has had several excellent press releases out lately and one again before today's opening bell announcing that it has executed a sponsored research agreement with Wayne State University and Arrayit Corporation, which encompasses continuing research and development of a microarray-based diagnostic test for the early detection of ovarian cancer! This could be great news for investors!

Arrayit Diagnostics, Inc., a majority-owned subsidiary of Arrayit Corporation (OTCBB: ARYC), today announced that it has executed a sponsored research agreement with Wayne State University and Arrayit Corporation, which encompasses continuing research and development of a microarray-based diagnostic test for the early detection of ovarian cancer.

This newly sponsored research project will be jointly conducted at the laboratories of Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan and Arrayit Corporation in Sunnyvale, California, and will provide for a much larger test population than previously studied in prior, related research projects. Dr. Michael Tainsky, Ph.D., director of molecular biology and genetics at Karmanos Cancer Institute and professor of pathology at Wayne State University's School of Medicine, will serve as principal investigator of the six-month project, working in close collaboration with Dr. Mark Schena, Ph.D., President and Chief Science Officer of Arrayit Corporation.

"For more than six years, Wayne State University has used Arrayit's microarray manufacturing technology to help identify key biomarkers using a novel process that has allowed us to isolate biomarkers unique to ovarian cancer," noted Dr. Tainsky. "As a result, we are now in late stage development of a simple blood test for the early detection of ovarian cancer that holds tremendous potential to materially -- and perhaps profoundly -- impact the survivability and quality of life of ovarian cancer victims."

Dr. Schena stated, "Through the combined efforts of Dr. Tainsky's and our research teams, Arrayit Corporation will perfect a panel of biomarkers printed in a microarray that will enable detection of ovarian cancer prior to the appearance of any symptoms. This research project is an important extension of Arrayit's ongoing relationship with Dr. Tainsky and Wayne State University, and should provide an unequivocal validation of the positive results we have achieved thus far, ultimately supporting and enhancing Arrayit Diagnostic's sales and marketing strategy."

According to the National Cancer Institute, it is estimated that 21,550 women will be diagnosed with and 14,600 women will die of cancer of the ovary in 2009 -- making it the fourth leading cause of death in women in the United States. Moreover, based on rates from 2004-2006, 1.4% of women born today will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer at some point during their lifetime. The disease presents with largely nonspecific symptoms during the initial stages of cancer progression, however there is currently no adequate screening or diagnostic test for early stage detection. As a result, most ovarian cancers are diagnosed only when later stage symptoms manifest and the disease has metastasized to other parts of the body. The five-year survival rate for late stage diagnosis is less than 20%, which compares to an approximate 90% survival rate if the disease is identified at the earliest stages.
