"We are very pleased to add Wayne and Jon to our management team," said H. Perry Fell, Ph.D., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, NanoString Technologies, Inc. "Their combined experience will enable us to begin building out the commercial side of the business as we prepare for a product launch in the first half of 2008."

"NanoString has succeeded in developing a technology that addresses major issues for researchers studying gene expression and we now need to start building the infrastructure to support commercialization of the product while supporting ongoing collaborations and establishing a 'fee for service' business model," said Wayne Burns. Jonathan Roy added "I am extremely excited about the opportunity to bring the nCounterô Gene Expression System to market, which we believe represents the only tool capable of highly multiplexed direct quantification of individual mRNAs in a biological sample."

Wayne Burns brings over 20 years of finance and operating experience to Nanostring Technologies. Most recently he served as COO and CFO at Action Engine Corporation. Previously Wayne was a founder and CEO of SafariDog, Inc., which successfully shipped the completed product within 12 months of its inception.
