MonoGen Discontinues Study

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Jan. 16, 2008) - MonoGen, Inc., ("Corporation") (TSX:MOG) today announced that the study underway at The Johns Hopkins Hospital will not be completed and the Research Use Only (RUO) instrument would be returned. Jim Cureton, MonoGen's VP of Sales and Marketing commented, "Obviously we had hoped to complete all phases of this study for use with non-gynecological specimens. We appreciate Johns Hopkins' willingness to undertake this effort, and we understand how the challenges of resource limitations and the regulatory prohibition of using an RUO instrument for the final diagnosis of clinical specimens impacted this evaluation. We look forward to discussing the advantages of the MonoPrep system with them at a later date."
