Date:10/16/2009

MADISON, N.J., Oct. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today issued a second emergency use authorization (EUA) to Focus Diagnostics, the infectious disease diagnostics business of Quest Diagnostics Incorporated (NYSE: DGX), for its 2009 H1N1 influenza virus test.
