DIANON SYSTEMS FORECASTS INCREASE IN SECOND QUARTER SALES

 DIANON SYSTEMS FORECASTS INCREASE IN SECOND QUARTER SALES
 NEW YORK, June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Dianon Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: DIAN) today forecast record sales for the second quarter ended June 30, 1992.
 Speaking at the Hambrecht and Quist Conference in New York, Dick Sandberg, chairman of the board and co-chief executive officer, forecast that sales for the second quarter will exceed $8.6 million, which would represent an increase of approximately 7 percent from the first quarter of 1992 and 30 percent from the same quarter of the prior year.
 In addition, Sandberg pointed out that while earnings per share comparisons between the second quarter of 1992 and the same quarter of 1991 would still be adversely affected by increases in the company's income tax rates and by the larger base of shares outstanding, these adverse effects would be reduced in the third and fourth quarters of 1992 and should be eliminated in comparing 1993 results to 1992
