Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. provides analytical instruments, equipment, reagents and consumables, software and services for research, manufacturing, analysis, discovery and diagnostics. The company serves various markets that include pharmaceutical and biotech companies, hospitals and clinical diagnostic labs, universities, research institutions and government agencies, as well as environmental and industrial process control settings. The company serves customers through four brands, Thermo Scientific, Life Technologies, Fisher Scientific and Unity Lab Services. Segments and Products As of December 31, 2013, the company operated in three segments: Analytical Technologies; Specialty Diagnostics; and Laboratory Products and Services. Through the acquisition of Life Technologies Corporation (Life Technologies), the company has established a new segment, called Life Sciences Solutions, as of January 1, 2014. ANALYTICAL TECHNOLOGIES This segment provides an offering of instruments, reagents, consumables, software, and services that are used for a range of applications in the laboratory, on the production line and in the field. These products are used by customers in all four of the company’s primary end markets, such as pharmaceutical and biotechnology; academic and government; industrial and applied; and healthcare and diagnostics. This segment includes four primary businesses – chromatography and mass spectrometry, chemical analysis, environmental and process instruments, and biosciences. Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry The company’s chromatography and mass spectrometry business provides analytical instrumentation for organic and inorganic sample analysis. These products are complemented by laboratory information management systems; chromatography data systems; database analytical tools; automation systems; and a range of consumables, such as a line of chromatography columns. Mass spectrometry is a technique for analyzing chemical compounds, individually or in complex mixtures, by forming charged ions that are then analyzed according to their mass-to-charge ratios. In addition to molecular information, each discrete chemical compound generates a pattern that provides structurally identifiable information. The company’s offering includes life sciences mass spectrometry systems; inorganic mass spectrometry systems; and elemental analysis instrumentation, as well as a range of sample preparation and separation products, including auto-samplers and multiplexing systems. Life sciences mass spectrometers include three major product lines, including triple quadrupole, ion trap, and hybrid systems. The company’s triple quadrupole systems provide quantitative analysis of chemicals in biological fluids, environmental samples and food matrices. They are also used by the pharmaceutical industry for targeted quantitation during drug discovery. Its ion trap systems are used for structural analysis of biomolecules, such as proteins, as well as structural characterization of small molecules, such as drugs and drug metabolites. Inorganic mass spectrometers include four product lines, including isotope ratio mass spectrometry; multi-collector mass spectrometry; inductively coupled plasma (ICP) mass spectrometry; and high resolution trace mass spectrometry. These products are primarily used for qualitative and quantitative analysis of inorganic matter in a range of applications, including environmental analysis, materials science, and earth sciences. Chromatography is a technique for separating, identifying, and quantifying individual chemical components of substances based on their specific physical and chemical characteristics. The company’s chromatography product line includes liquid chromatography, ion chromatography, and gas chromatography systems, all of which are supported by its Chromeleon chromatography data system software. Its range of consumables and environmental sampling products complete the workflow solution. Liquid chromatography systems analyze complex sample matrices in liquids. The company’s high pressure liquid chromatography and ultrahigh pressure liquid chromatography systems of
