CombiMatrix Corporation (CBMX) Reports Preliminary Annual Growth in Prenatal Testing Volumes of 172% and 171% for Fourth Quarter and Year, Respectively


1/7/2013 9:34:42 AM

IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CombiMatrix Corporation (Nasdaq:CBMX), a molecular diagnostics company performing DNA-based testing services for developmental disorders and cancer diagnostics, today announced that it expects to report record volumes of prenatal testing in the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012. Preliminary annual growth rates of 172 percent and 171 percent were achieved for billable prenatal tests in the quarter and full year, respectively. The rapid growth rate in prenatal testing, which includes both prenatal and miscarriage testing, is the result of the Company's strategic shift to focus on its prenatal molecular diagnostics testing markets, where the Company believes that chromosomal microarray analysis (CMA) is becoming the standard of care. CombiMatrix is the only publicly-traded company that specializes in CMA.
