Atossa Genetics, Inc. (ATOS) and Clarity Women's Health Announce U.S. Launch of the ForeCYTE Breast Health Test


1/14/2013 9:49:39 AM

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - January 14, 2013) -

Atossa Genetics (NASDAQ: ATOS), the Breast Health Company™, based in Seattle, Washington, and Clarity Women's Health (a division of Diagnostic Test Group, LLC) of Boca Raton, Florida, announced today the launch of the ForeCYTE Breast Health Test at Clarity's national sales meeting, held on January 10-11th, 2013, in Boca Raton, Florida. The patented ForeCYTE Breast Health Test is designed for the early detection of precancerous breast conditions and the determination of the future risk of breast cancer, using a clinically validated algorithm including family history, personal reproductive history and breast cytopathology. The ForeCYTE Test, which uses the patented, FDA-cleared MASCT Breast Health System to painlessly collect a tiny sample of nipple ductal fluid, is designed to be performed at the point of care in a non-invasive and highly sensitive manner.

"Clarity Women's Health brings tremendous relationships with its clients driven by highly skilled technical support and customer service teams. I believe we have a strong national launch strategy working with the Clarity team and we anticipate rapid adoption as physicians' access to the ForeCYTE test is expanded," said Chris Destro, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Atossa Genetics, Inc. "The passion and commitment of the entire team at Clarity Women's Health to make a difference in the current paradigm of breast health is palpable."

"The ForeCYTE Breast Health Test is the cornerstone of our new division, Clarity Women's Health," stated Daniel Léger, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Diagnostic Test Group, LLC. "This product is targeted for over 110 million women between the ages of 18 and 73 in the U.S. who can now obtain a simple test in their physician's office and learn their future risk of breast cancer up to eight years before mammography can pick it up. This kind of advanced information was created for cervical cancer by the Pap smear and was responsible for the 75% reduction in the incidence of cervical cancer. The ForeCYTE Breast Health Test has the potential to do the same for breast cancer."
