Thermo Fisher Scientific is the world leader in serving science. The company is the largest provider of analytical instruments, equipment, reagents and consumables, software and services for research, analysis discovery, and diagnostics. Producing an annual revenue rate of more than $9 billion, Thermo Fisher serves over 350,000 customers within pharmaceutical and biotech companies, hospitals and clinical diagnostic labs, universities, research institutions and government agencies as well as environment, industrial quality and process control settings.

The company was founded in 1956 by Dr. George Hastopoulos. Since its inauguration, Thermo Fisher Scientific has been committed to maintaining a steady level of strategic growth. During its 50-year history, the company has completed acquisitions of some of the leading providers in the industry including Kendro Laboratory Products, Finnigan, and Nicolet. Most recently, the company has completed its merger with Fisher Scientific. The new Thermo Scientific brand represents a union of two leaders in scientific discovery: Thermo Electron and Fisher Scientific. The merger has enabled the company to provide its world-class offerings of equipment, consumables and reagents to more industries with a broader portfolio than ever before.

Thermo Fisher Scientific's analytical instrumentation products are used primarily in laboratory and industrial settings and incorporate a range of techniques, all of which can be combined with a range of accessories, consumables, software, special reference databases, services and support, to provide a complete solution. The company's offerings fall into two main categories, Life and Laboratory Sciences and Measurement and Control.

Looking forward, the company remains committed to its development of scientific instruments and technology, placing a strong focus on research and development.

Congratulations to LCGC on their 25th anniversary.
