Date:2/21/2013

VALENCIA, Calif., Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SANGUINE BIOSCIENCES, INC. ("Sanguine"), a biotechnology company empowering patients in biomedical research, has announced the closing of its seed financing round, led by INVENT Ventures and Heliant Ventures.

Sanguine engages research subjects through social media and non-profit advocacy, and schedules blood draws, which are then processed into DNA, RNA, cells, plasma, and serum, to be used as biomedical research materials at pharmaceutical companies and research institutions. The company has developed the infrastructure to provide research subjects with information on how their samples were used, in order to ultimately increase trust and information flow back to researchers.

"Sanguine has experienced significant growth since Q4 2012, both in terms of revenues and number of research subjects. The successful completion of the laboratory and regulatory infrastructure allowed us the opportunity to open our doors to research participants, both healthy, and diagnosed with an ailment(s), and to researchers at numerous pharmaceutical companies and academic institutions.

We plan to use the funds raised in the seed round to further develop our internal infrastructure in order to safely and efficiently collect, process, document, and store up to 1,000 blood samples each month across the west coast. We are looking forward to scaling up and providing researchers with the samples they need to perform their investigations, while also providing patients with the knowledge of how their samples have impacted Personalized Medicine research."Brian Neman , CEO
