Joint Efforts to Advance Clinical Application of Mass Spectrometry

Correlogic Systems and JEOL Sign Research and Development Agreement

ROCKVILLE, MD | Posted on June 6th, 2007

Correlogic Systems, Inc. and JEOL, Ltd. today announced the signing of a research and development
agreement focused on further enhancing the performance of mass spectrometry
in a clinical setting. JEOL, headquartered in Tokyo, is a leading global
manufacturer of scientific instruments used for research and development in
the fields of nanotechnology, life sciences, optical communication,
forensics, and biotechnology. Correlogic, based in Rockville, Maryland has
pioneered the use of pattern recognition technologies for the development
of proteomic, metabolomic, and genomic based clinical prognostic and
clinical diagnostic tests. Correlogic and JEOL have collaborated for more
than a year under an informal agreement, and have made great strides in the
continuing validation of various mass spectrometer-based assays. Details of
the agreement were not released.

Over the past year, we have had a very close and productive research
collaboration with JEOL," said Peter J. Levine, President and CEO of
Correlogic Systems, Inc. "This agreement formalizes our link to one of the
world's leading mass spectrometer and NMR manufacturers."
