NEW YORK -- October 29, 2013

The Enzo Clinical Labs subsidiary of Enzo Biochem, Inc. (NYSE:ENZ) has entered
into an agreement to market in its northeast U.S. service area a proprietary
early non-invasive prenatal laboratory test (“LDT”) service, MaterniT21 PLUS
™, developed by the Sequenom Laboratories, Inc., subsidiary of Sequenom, Inc.

“The addition of Sequenom Laboratories’ innovative prenatal testing service
provides an important complement to our extensive menu of women’s health
diagnostic assays, and also is testament to the strong and growing
capabilities in the general and rapidly developing area of diagnostics
resulting from integration of Enzo’s Life Sciences and Clinical Labs,” said
Barry Weiner, Enzo President.

Mr. Weiner added, “Sequenom Laboratories’ testing service will be of great
value to our physician clients and their patients, providing an advanced
crucial assay to assess the potential for chromosomal abnormalities early in a
pregnancy. It also underscores our Company’s leading independent position in a
highly valuable regional market for clinical laboratory services, and our
expertise in the development and marketing of high-value esoteric testing that
provides an excellent vehicle through which we can offer this, as well as our
growing menu of ground breaking diagnostic assays.”

Sequenom Laboratories was the first to market a noninvasive prenatal
laboratory-developed test for fetal chromosomal abnormalities. The MaterniT21
PLUS test analyzes the relative amount of 21, 18, 13, as well as X and Y
chromosomal material in cell-free DNA. The test is intended for use in
pregnant women at increased risk for fetal aneuploidy, can be used as early as
10 weeks' gestation, andis run exclusively by Sequenom Center for Molecular
Medicine, doing business as Sequenom Laboratories Estimates suggest there are
about 750,000 pregnancies at high risk for fetal aneuploidy each year in the
United States.
