INVESTOR ALERT: Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses in Excess of $50,000 Investing in Roka Bioscience, Inc. (ROKA) to Contact the Firm

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - January 26, 2015) - Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Roka Bioscience, Inc. ("Roka" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: ROKA) of the February 23, 2015 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against Roka and certain officers of the Company.

A complaint has been filed in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of all persons who purchased or otherwise acquired Roka securities between July 17, 2014 and November 6, 2014 (the "Class Period").

The complaint alleges that the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws with respect to its statements concerning its business, operations, and prospects.

Specifically, the action alleges that during the Class Period, Roka misrepresented and/or failed to disclose the trend of declining demand for its Atlas System and poor sales in the offering documents of its July 17, 2014 initial public offering.

On November 6, 2014, Roka announced its third quarter results, which included a net loss of $0.64 per share. The Company also noted that there were no additional placements of its Atlas instruments in the third quarter.

Following this news, the price of Roka stock declined by $5.34 per share, or over 64%, to close on November 7, 2014 at $3.00 per share.
