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 just had excellent news out in a press release before today's opening bell announcing that its microarray-based diagnostic test, patented under the trade name Variation Identification Platform (VIP), is ready for manufacture and distribution! Investors should be watching this one closely!

Arrayit Corporation (OTCBB: ARYC), a leading manufacturer of products and services for disease prevention, treatment and cure, announced today that its microarray-based diagnostic test, patented under the trade name Variation Identification Platform (VIP), is ready for manufacture and distribution. A breakthrough screening test using VIP will allow clinicians and researchers to test and detect the H1N1 swine flu virus in population wide studies.

The World Health Organization (WHO) announced on June 11, that the threat level of the H1N1 swine flu virus is now a global pandemic. This news is ideally timed with Arrayit Corporation's release of its patented VIP screening test.

The Arrayit test will allow researchers and clinicians to detect the presence of the new H1N1 virus in mass numbers of flu patients, and to distinguish this threatening mutated strain from less harmful variants. Arrayit's first supplies will be sent to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta to be approved for use in the USA. Shortly thereafter, the H1N1 test kits will be made available for emergency use by licensed clinics, laboratories and other health care organizations worldwide.

The VIP screening test is the first of its kind developed for multiple numbers of test subjects, with diagnosis available to patients within hours of testing. Up to 80,000 patients can be screened at a time, making it possible for entire communities and entire countries to quickly identify those infected with the new H1N1 virus. The ability to test and quickly diagnose mass numbers of subjects allows health clinicians the opportunity to gain control of the spread of the virus in a shorter time frame than current individual testing procedures. The VIP test kits will be made available at an affordable cost (estimated at under $50 per individual), making it feasible even for those without health insurance coverage to be screened.
