Detailed Results

Gen-Probe's clinical diagnostics sales in the third quarter of 2008 benefited from continued growth of the APTIMA Combo 2(R) assay, an amplified nucleic acid test (NAT) for simultaneously detecting Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) and Neisseria gonorrhoeae (GC). Sales of this assay increased based on market share gains on both the Company's semi-automated instrument platform and on the high-throughput, fully automated TIGRIS(R) system. Revenue from the PACE(R) product line, the Company's non-amplified tests for the same microorganisms, declined in the third quarter compared to the prior year period, in line with Gen-Probe's expectations.

In blood screening, product sales in the third quarter of 2008 benefited from increased international and domestic sales of the PROCLEIX(R) ULTRIO(R) assay, and from approximately $1.8 million of foreign exchange benefit compared to the prior year. Chiron, a business unit of Novartis Vaccines and Diagnostics, markets the Company's blood screening products worldwide.
