(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.
