April 6, 2023 at 8:00 AM EDT

TUCSON, Ariz., April 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HTG Molecular Diagnostics, Inc. (Nasdaq: HTGM) (HTG), a platform-based life science tools and drug discovery company, today announced there will be at least four scientific posters featuring its proprietary HTG EdgeSeq™ technology presented at the American Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting (AACR) April 16-19 in Orlando, Florida.

Global leaders in cancer research, including The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Providence Saint John’s Health Center and Merck KGaA, will be sharing research conducted utilizing the HTG EdgeSeq platform gene expression profiling (GEP). The science being presented at AACR highlights the broad spectrum of applications utilizing HTG’s ultra-efficient RNA profiling platform and the Company’s capabilities from biomarker discovery and genomic signatures to drug discovery. Prominent among the data being presented is analysis from HTG’s powerful tool, the HTG Transcriptome Panel (HTP), which enables the capture of comprehensive and reliable human transcriptome data using a fraction of the sample typically required by other GEP methods.

The posters will be presented at AACR at the times outlined below, and will be available on our website after the presentation:
