Date:11/4/2009

MADISON, N.J., Oct. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Quest Diagnostics Incorporated (NYSE: DGX), the world's leading provider of diagnostic testing, information and services, announced that for the third quarter ended September 30, 2009, income from continuing operations rose to $192 million, or $1.02 per diluted share, from $160 million, or $0.81 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2008. In 2008, third quarter results were reduced by a $0.03 per share charge associated with the write-down of an equity investment, and a $0.02 per share impact associated with hurricanes.

Third quarter revenues increased 3.9% to $1.9 billion compared to the prior year. Clinical testing revenues increased by 4.3% compared to the prior year. Revenue per requisition increased 4.3%. Underlying volume in clinical testing, measured by the number of requisitions, continued to grow in the quarter. Reported testing volume was unchanged from the prior year and reflected a 23% decline in drugs-of-abuse testing volume, which is sensitive to hiring trends, and which reduced the company's consolidated volume by 1.7%. In the third quarter of 2008, consolidated revenues and volume were reduced by approximately half a percent as a result of the impact of hurricanes.

"Quest Diagnostics' strong financial performance continues to be driven by increased demand in testing for cancer, sexually transmitted diseases, allergies and Vitamin D levels. Based on our strong performance, we are raising earnings guidance for the full year," said Surya N. Mohapatra, Ph.D., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
