CollabRx Partners With Sengenics for Molecular Diagnostics



CollabRx Partners With Sengenics for Molecular Diagnostics

SAN FRANCISCO, April 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CollabRx, Inc. (Nasdaq:CLRX),
today announced a partnership with Sengenics, a leading genetic diagnostics
company, to provide turn-key diagnostic decision making solutions for Asian
and global markets. Sengenics plans to incorporate CollabRx's interpretive
content resources into its molecular cancer diagnostics tests and reports.

"Sengenics has become a widely recognized pioneer in this field, as it was the
first company outside the US to offer genomics-based research and diagnostic
services," said CollabRx Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer
Thomas Mika. "We look forward to partnering with Sengenics on a powerful joint
offering in clinical cancer sequencing."

Sengenics plans to offer cancer exome sequencing tests combined with CollabRx
interpretive analytics to create a comprehensive medical informatics solution.
The solution is being designed to seamlessly pair tests results with
clinically actionable and dynamically updated knowledge on the clinical impact
of specific tumor genetic profiles and associated therapeutic strategies such
as drugs and clinical trials. CollabRx will provide the content in a
SaaS-based business model.

"We are excited about partnering with CollabRx and developing such an
important turn-key solution for clinical cancer sequencing," said Dr. Anwar,
Executive Director of Sengenics. "Our joint solution's ability to provide
insights from CollabRx's clinical practitioner network represents critical and
timely value to physicians when they are interpreting test results."

The partnership leverages CollabRx's semantic integration platform, a
scalable, proprietary technology that enables CollabRx scientists and
physicians to dynamically update the company's molecular oncology knowledge
base with the latest medical and scientific data available in the public
domain.

The partnership, leveraging on Sengenics' status as a prominent commercial
entity in the genomics and diagnostics space, extends CollabRx's business to
three continents: North America, Europe and Asia.

"CollabRx has established an industry standard for interpretive reporting in
cancer diagnostics which this agreement helps to expand globally," said Mr.
Mika. "We also look forward to working with Sengenics to expand our
interpretive content to genomic disease areas outside of cancer."

Sengenics has a portfolio of more than 400 genetic tests for Development
Delay, Rare Genetic Disorders, Cardiac risk, Thalassaemia and Cancer.
