Date:11/3/2009

TORONTO, and WASHINGTON, D.C., Nov. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - MDS Inc. (TSX: MDS; NYSE: MDZ), a leading provider of products and services to the global life sciences markets, and Danaher Corporation (NYSE: DHR), a diversified technology leader, today announced that they have each received a Second Request for information from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regarding the sale of MDS Analytical Technologies.

The Second Request relates to a global market segment that MDS and Danaher estimate generates less than $50 million in annual revenues for all sellers combined.

The information request was issued under notification requirements of the Hart Scott Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (HSR Act). The effect of the Second Request is to extend the waiting period imposed by the HSR Act for a period of 30 calendar days from the date of the parties' substantial compliance with the request, unless the waiting period is earlier terminated.

MDS Inc. and Danaher Corporation continue to cooperate with the FTC and currently expect the transaction, which was announced on September 2, 2009 and received approval from MDS shareholders on October 20, 2009, to close before the end of the first calendar quarter of 2010, subject to the satisfaction of the conditions to closing.
