SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - April 29, 2013) -

Atossa Genetics, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATOS), The Breast Health Company™, will display its ForeCYTE Breast Health Test at the 61st Annual Clinical Meeting of the American Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology in New Orleans from May 4 - 8, 2013. The Atossa exhibit will be located in booth #728 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

The ForeCYTE Breast Health Test, developed and marketed by Atossa Genetics, detects reversible precancerous conditions in the breast up to eight years before they become cancer. The test uses a hand-held, FDA Class II medical device that is quick, painless, and non-invasive and can be administered during an OB/GYN office visit. Unlike mammograms, which are commonly recommended for women starting at age 40 to 50, the ForeCYTE Breast Health Test is more age agnostic, uses no radiation and does not require invasive biopsy needles or surgical incisions.

"As ForeCYTE testing can provide vital early detection of cancer or precancerous conditions and save lives by doing so, we look forward to personally presenting its value to the largest gathering of gynecologists, obstetricians, and related professionals in the nation," noted Chris Destro, Vice President of Atossa, who will attend the exhibition.

Mr. Destro added, "Our recent contracts with Multi-Plan and FedMed covering 97 million lives will help ensure access to our test within OB/GYN practices nationwide and ultimately help gain broader patient access."

Atossa's ForeCYTE Breast Health Test is available through physicians nationwide.

(NASDAQ: ATOS), The Breast Health Company™, based in Seattle, WA, is focused on preventing breast cancer through the commercialization of patented, FDA-designated Class II diagnostic medical devices and patented, laboratory developed tests (LDT) that can detect precursors to breast cancer up to eight years before mammography.
