6/9/2011 8:59:28 AM

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - June 08, 2011) -

Stratos Genomics Inc. today announced $2.1 million of funding to continue development of its ultra-low-cost nucleic acid sequencing method for whole genome analysis and molecular diagnostics. The funds are provided by existing shareholders as an "up round" to August 2010's $4 million financing and under the same Series-A terms.

"We are fortunate to have great results and supportive investors," Stratos Genomics CEO, Allan Stephan, said. "Our shareholders recognize that we are entering an exciting phase and don't want our validation pace interrupted by external fundraising activities."
