Date:10/7/2008

Roche Diagnostics Makes List for Fourth Consecutive Year

INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- InformationWeek ranked Roche Diagnostics as one of the magazine's Top 500 innovative users of technology, an honor bestowed to only a handful of companies in the biotech and pharmaceutical industry.

Roche Diagnostics, which ranked No. 86, in the 2008 report, outperformed others in business-process efficiencies through increased automation, improved data integration, re-engineered applications and centralized control of IT operations.

"This is a great honor to be recognized by InformationWeek as being 86th out of the Top 500 Innovators and a great achievement for the Roche Diagnostics' North America IT team. They have implemented key business- technology strategies that InformationWeek considers to show bottom line efficiency and innovation," said Kurt Seiler, Vice President of Information Technology at Roche Diagnostics North America."

For nearly 20 years, InformationWeek 500 has tracked and listed technology practices of the nation's most innovative companies, including evaluation of technology deployment, IT budgets, business-technology infrastructure and IT strategies.

InformationWeek 500 is unique among corporate rankings, as it spotlights the power of innovation in information technology by measuring and celebrating accomplishments, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders. To be eligible for ranking on this year's list, Roche Diagnostics' North American information technology department was assessed on best IT and Business practices across core areas of operations, including IT budgets, technology deployment, strategies, and staffing.
