Comment and Outlook

The Company's President and Chief Executive Officer, Craig Tuttle, noted, "We are very pleased with second quarter net sales. We experienced a substantial improvement over first quarter. Our instrument and consumables revenues met our internal projections and our molecular diagnostics laboratory business grew by more than $200,000 over first quarter. Second quarter net sales in our Pharmaceutical Research Services business were slightly behind our internal projections due to timing issues with receiving samples from some of our key pharmaceutical partners. We believe that we will continue to grow in our research services business and that, combined with our ongoing cost reduction efforts, will support our goal of reaching break even performance by the end of the fiscal year."

Mr. Tuttle continued, "Our Pharmaceutical Research Services group performed work for six pharmaceutical companies so far this year, and we signed several new contracts with these and other new partners which will result in continued growth for this division. We are also in the process of increasing resources in our clinical molecular diagnostics lab to further drive growth similar to what we have been experiencing for this business over the last few quarters. Finally, we expect to realize the full impact of the ongoing consolidations and other cost reduction by the fourth quarter of the year. This is a very exciting time for the company as we enjoy the results of our refocusing on strong financial performance in our traditional mutation discovery tools business and substantial growth in our diagnostics laboratory business and Pharmaceutical Research Services business."
