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!

The company has issued several positive press releases recently and on a technical note, Arrayit Corporation's shares continue to act very well! This could be great news for investors!

Arrayit Corporation (OTCBB: ARYC) is pleased to join the federal government in their efforts to help control health care costs through early diagnosis of diseases.

For more than 150 years, traditional medicine has relied on a 'standards of care' model, which utilizes large cohorts of individuals as the data set and essentially treats every person in an identical manner. While this medical model provides a good paradigm for standard health care practices, it is woefully deficient in that it fails to include genetic and epigenetic differences between people as well as the interplay between our genes and environmental factors including medication, diet and other lifestyle considerations. In a major paradigm shift, personalized medicine is gaining rapid popularity in that it endeavors to provide customized healthcare to individuals inclusive of genetics, epigenetics and the environment, leading to early stage diagnosis of diseases that have exacted a heavy cost in quality and length of life and dollars spent in late stage treatment.

Personalized medicine is a vastly superior advance in health care if it can be delivered at a rate equivalent to or less than the current standards of care model. As a next generation healthcare company, Arrayit Corporation is capable of delivering personalized medical information to the public at a fraction of current costs, owing to the company's unique ability to miniaturize, automate and massively parallelize genomic and proteomic tests. In simple terms, these molecular diagnostic tests, requiring only a blood sample, will be more accurate and less personally invasive than many traditional cancer screening methods. Arrayit's patented microarray manufacturing technology and Variation Identification Platform (VIP) procedures, deployed in clinical laboratories and reference centers, are capable of testing entire population groups. Arrayit personalized medical tests for pre-symptomatic ovarian cancer detection, H1N1 screening, and Parkinson's Disease diagnostics represent only a few of the collaborative milestones soon to be announced.
