PORTON DOWN, England, July 16 --

Enigma Diagnostics Limited, the decentralized and point-of-care molecular
diagnostics company, announced today that it has signed two patent license
agreements with Roche Molecular Systems, Inc. (RMS).

The licenses signed on 15 July 2009, provide Enigma full access under patents
owned or licensed by RMS and its affiliates to practice HybProbe real-time PCR
chemistry and melt analysis and will allow Enigma to commercialize HybProbe PCR
tests for human and veterinary in vitro diagnostics on a worldwide basis. The
two licenses with RMS complement Enigma’s existing patent portfolio as
well as intellectual property licensed by Celera Diagnostics for real-time PCR
thermal cyclers.

Enigma is currently developing a series of highly multiplexed, HybProbe assays
for its infectious disease programs including pandemic and seasonal influenza,
chlamydia and MRSA. These tests will be combined with Enigma’s
revolutionary fully automated real-time PCR system, the Enigma ML
(mini-laboratory), enabling fast and accurate ’test and treat’
molecular diagnostics at point-of-care.

Financial terms were not disclosed.
