(Other OTC: NGEN.PK), developer of molecular and rapid diagnostic products, today announced that on July 2, 2009, pursuant to an Asset Purchase Agreement dated May 13, 2009, as amended, Nanogen and its subsidiaries Epoch BioSciences, Inc. and Nanotronics, Inc. completed their previously announced sale of substantially all of their assets to Financière Elitech SAS ("Elitech") and its designee DxCon, Inc. in a sale conducted under the provisions of Section 363 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code (the "Bankruptcy Code") and approved by the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the "Court") on June 24, 2009 (the "Section 363 Sale").

Nanogen Completes Asset Sale

San Diego, CA | Posted on July 9th, 2009

Elitech plans to operate the Nanogen molecular diagnostics business including Nanogen Advance Diagnostics (Italy) and the Bothell, Washington units. DxCon, Inc. will operate the rapid diagnostics business based out of San Diego, California.

On July 6, 2009, Nanogen filed with the Delaware Secretary of State a Certificate of Amendment of Restated Certificate of Incorporation of Nanogen, Inc. amending its Restated Certificate of Incorporation to change its corporate name from "Nanogen, Inc." to "Ngen, Inc.".

This sale concludes the disposition of substantially all of the assets of Nanogen and its U.S. subsidiaries. Management of Nanogen believes that there will be no value for common stockholders of Nanogen in the bankruptcy liquidation process. Stockholders of a company in chapter 11 generally receive value only if all claims of its secured and unsecured creditors are fully satisfied. Nanogen believes that the claims of Nanogen's creditors will not be fully satisfied, even after completion of the Section 363 Sale or future sales of remaining assets, if any, in the liquidation process.
