While genomic sequencing has made great strides in helping researchers understand human disease, its clinical utility is not fully known. This research study brings together the accuracy of the Applied Biosy- stems SOLiD™ System, with US Oncology’s exper- tise in cancer trials and TGen’s Cancer Genome and Oncology programs, to provide additional informa- tion for oncologists and their patients. Triple nega- tive tumors, which make up nearly 20% of breast cancers, do not respond to treatment with common targeted breast cancer therapies such as Herceptin.

anz Automation (M5Z / ISIN:DE000A0JQ5U3), Germany, one of the world’s leading technolo-

gy providers for the photovoltaic and LCD industries, acquired new orders with a volume of more than EUR25 million from customers in China and Taiwan. The order backlog thus increased to EUR70 million as of January 31, 2010.

“As a result, manufacturers reinforce their competi- tive position while keeping operating costs, the so- called total costs of ownership, to a minimum. That’s why our systems enjoy great demand,” explained Dieter Manz, Manz Automation’s CEO. He added: “At present we are running customer tests practically non-stop in our technology and training center in Reutlingen. A key factor is that we not only promise high levels of efficiency, but that we also prove that we can do it with real cells from our customers on genuine production systems. And this has allowed us to successfully place additional end-to-end backend lines with corresponding automation on the market in the shortest of timeframes.” Manz has received new orders from the solar sector with a total volume of more than EUR12 million from existing customers in Taiwan and China as well as two new customers, also from the Peoples’ Republic.

Recently the Company began operations as a sup- plier of integrated system solutions for the manufac- ture of lithium-ion cells and batteries.
