Date:12/15/2011

A system provides Hologic, a world leader in cervical cancer screening, the most complete cervical cancer screening solution available on the market today.

About the ThinPrep Pap Test and Cervista HPV HR and Cervista HPV 16/18 Tests
Research on human papillomavirus has made impressive progress in recent years. Better diagnosis and therapies have helped to significantly reduce the number of new cancer cases, advanced-stage tumors, and ultimately deaths from cervical cancer in particular, which is predominantly caused by HPV. Next to breast cancer, cervical cancer remains the second most frequent cancer affecting women worldwide.

Hologic has been dedicated to the prevention of cervical cancer through screening since the introduction of its ThinPrep Pap Test in 1996. The ThinPrep Pap Test today is the most widely-used liquid based cytology platform in the United States and many other countries of the world. In 2003, Hologic was the first to introduce a computer-guided imaging system for cervical cancer screening with the approval of its ThinPrep Imaging System which has since become the standard of care for the majority of ThinPrep customers. With the approval of the Company's Cervista HTA system, Hologic offers a complete cervical cancer screening solution that is scalable for all laboratory customers.

The Cervista HTA system has the ability to process multiple batch sizes of samples providing high-to-mid-volume laboratories the opportunity to utilize Hologic's automation and use the reagents efficiently.

Hologic's unique combination of cytology and molecular products, including the ThinPrep Pap, Cervista HPV HR and Cervista HPV 16/18 tests, provides a full range of cervical cancer screening technologies for improving women's health.
