We are excited to share that after nearly four years of research we
have now entered the product development phase for our Single Molecule, Real Time (SMRTTM) DNA Sequencing System. We currently have prototypes running 24 hours a day at our Menlo Park facility, where we continue internal testing and genome sequencing. And, we are on track for our commercial launch in the second half of 2010.
We wanted to take the opportunity to share with you and highlight a number of exciting milestones that Pacific Biosciences has achieved in recent months, including completing a significant round of financing, publishing our Single Molecule, Real Time sequencing method in Science, and welcoming Dr. Elaine Mardis to our Scientific
Additional information about these developments and more is detailed below. We look forward to keeping you informed of our progress at this exciting time in our company’s history as we prepare for the commercial launch of our breakthrough SMRT sequencing technology.
