Good Start Genetics, Inc. to Present at 15th Annual Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) CEO & Investor Conference Monday, February 11th


2/7/2013 9:22:03 AM

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - February 06, 2013) - Good Start Genetics, ®Inc., an innovative molecular diagnostics company developing the new gold standard in carrier screening, announced today that it will present at the 2013 BIO CEO & Investor Conference at the Waldorf Astoria in New York, NY. Don Hardison, president and CEO of Good Start Genetics, is scheduled to present Monday, Feb. 11, at 2 p.m. EST.

Mr. Hardison will provide an overview of Good Start Genetics and its groundbreaking next-generation DNA sequencing based carrier screening service, as well as highlights from its first year on the market. Mr. Hardison will be available for one-on-one meetings with investors and media attending the conference.

Good Start Genetics also is proud to announce that four separate abstracts related to its technology have been accepted for presentation at the upcoming annual meetings of the Pacific Coast Reproductive Society (PCRS) and the American Congress of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG).

Since its national launch in April 2012, Good Start Genetics' high-complexity, CLIA- and CAP-accredited laboratory has processed tens of thousands of test orders. The GoodStart Select™ next-generation gene sequencing technology detects common mutations in carriers across all 23 diseases recommended for testing by major medical societies as well as rare mutations that would go undetected by laboratories using older, traditional genotyping-based technologies. For example, most genotyping technologies detect about 100 mutations for cystic fibrosis (CF), while GoodStart Select™ detects 550 mutations.
