Media Alert: Atossa Genetics to Sponsor Screenings of Decoding Annie Parker at the Seattle International Film Festival on June 6 and 8, 2013

Complimentary Tickets Available to Members of the Seattle Media

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - May 29, 2013) - Atossa Genetics, Inc.

WHAT:
Based on true events, Decoding Annie Parker follows a 15-year war waged on both scientific and emotional fronts by a pair of women demonstrating extreme bravery under pressure. Annie Parker (Samantha Morton), who lost her mother and sister to breast cancer is diagnosed with the disease, displaying a force of spirit that belies the odds. Elsewhere, geneticist Mary-Claire King (Helen Hunt) is researching the idea of an undiscovered link between DNA and cancer, a process that finds her scrambling for both funding and the support of her disbelieving colleagues.

WHO: 
Atossa Genetics, Inc., The Breast Health Company™, is sponsoring two screenings of the new film Decoding Annie Parker at the Seattle International Film Festival on June 6 and 8, 2013. The company is offering free tickets to members of the media who wish to attend.

WHERE: 
The Seattle International Film Festival's showing of Decoding Annie Parker will be at the Egyptian Theater, 801 E. Pine Street in Seattle, WA. The showing on June 6th is at 7:00 PM PDT and the showing on June 8th is at 1:30 PM PDT.

WHY:
Seattle-based Atossa Genetics is focused on preventing breast cancer through the commercialization of patented diagnostic medical devices and patented laboratory developed tests (LDT) that can detect precursors to breast cancer up to eight years before mammography, and through research and development that will permit it to commercialize treatments for pre-cancerous lesions. The company has developed the patented ForeCYTE Breast Health Test, a risk assessment test for women ages 18 to 73 akin to the Pap Smear.
