Atlas Genetics, a rapid, near-patient and point-of-care (POC) testing
company, today announced the appointment of industry veteran Marc Jones
as Chief Operating Officer ("COO") and Chief Financial Officer ("CFO").

In this dual role, Jones will lead Atlas Genetics' finance and
operations functions, as well as new channel development, and he will
again partner with Jeffrey Luber, President and Chief Executive Officer
of Atlas, in key areas influencing strategic direction and execution.

"We are pleased to welcome Marc to the executive team as Atlas
transitions from clinical proof of concept to its commercial phase
globally," said Luber. "The healthcare landscape is changing rapidly,
with an emerging focus on consumer convenience and rapid testing in
decentralized locations. With the Atlas io® platform's ability to detect
disease through a small, desktop instrument, we are poised to leverage
these growing trends. Having talent of Marc's caliber aboard, joining a
stellar team of executives, will ensure we are ready to lead in new
high-growth mobile/digital and retail health categories. Marc is a
visionary executive with a proven track record of successfully guiding
healthcare companies in new market categories through important
commercial milestones. He has great skill in taking new ideas from
concept to execution on time and on budget."

Jones joins Atlas Genetics from Good Start Genetics, where he served as
the COO and CFO. In that role, Jones and Luber raised successive rounds
of capital and helped lead the turnaround of the company to record
business growth and its ultimate sale to publicly traded Invitae
(NYSE:NVTA).Prior to Good Start Genetics, Jones served as the CFO of T2
Biosystems, where he oversaw the company's successful public offering,
raising nearly $100 million in capital, and helped drive the
commercialization of the company's first FDA approved IVD product.
Previously, Jones held the CFO position at Crashlytics, Ivenix and CHiL
Semiconductor. Earlier in his career, he held a number of corporate
finance positions ranging from Fortune 50 companies to high-growth
startups.

infectious diseases. The io® platform offers a sample-to-answer time of
30 minutes, or less, making it possible to carry out infectious disease
