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 just had excellent news out in a press release before today's opening bell announcing a collaboration with the European Space Agency! The company also said that back home on planet Earth, this microarray technology is being employed in the discovery of the reactions within cells that lead to specific diseases. The company continued to say that this revelation in healthcare will in turn, lead to rapid diagnostics and early detection of cancer and auto-immune disease! This could be great news for investors!

Arrayit Corporation (OTCBB: ARYC), a proprietary life sciences technology leader, announces a collaboration with the European Space Agency.

Since 1877 when the Italian astronomer Giovanni Schiaparelli first observed the Canals, people have wanted to prove there was life on Mars. Today the European Space Agency's ExoMars Mission Aurora Program (http://www.esa.int/esaMI/Aurora/SEMLUP7X9DE_0.html) is using Arrayit Technology to create the Life Marker Chip (LMC) to search for evidence of past and present life on Mars. The technology will examine Martian soil samples, while aboard the rover on Mars, from the surface and up to 2 meters below the surface where organic molecules may be better preserved.

The LMC is an antibody microarray based instrument which aims to detect a number of specific targets which may be present in the sample, and is the only instrument which can specifically identify large organic molecules. The microarray is printed on to thin film optical waveguides by the Arrayit Spotbot microarray printer. Arrayit was determined to be the only viable alternative after an exhaustive study of all microarray methodology and equipment. The ExoMars mission is currently planned for launch in 2011 and will land its rover in 2013.

"We are pleased to be chosen for this mission-critical contribution," said Rene Schena, CEO of Arrayit. "This demonstrates the versatility and durability of our microarray approach to identifying organics at the molecular level."

Back home on planet Earth, this microarray technology is being employed in the discovery of the reactions within cells that lead to specific diseases. This revelation in healthcare will in turn, lead to rapid diagnostics and early detection of cancer and auto-immune disease.
