BEDFORD, Mass., Oct. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hologic, Inc. (Nasdaq: HOLX), a leading provider of diagnostic imaging and state-of-the-art digital imaging systems directed towards women's health, today announced it will open the NASDAQ Stock Market tomorrow, October 2, 2007, in New York at 9:30AM ET in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, commemorated annually on October 1st.

More than 40,000 American women will die from breast cancer this year.
