Business Segments Description

Life and Laboratory Sciences

We serve the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, academic, and other research and industrial laboratory markets, as well as the clinical laboratory and healthcare industries, through our Life and Laboratory Sciences segment. During 2003, this segment was organized as four divisions: Bioscience Technologies, Scientific Instruments, Informatics and Services, and Clinical Diagnostics.

Bioscience Technologies encompasses a broad range of instruments, consumables, and robotic systems such as microplate-based handling and reading equipment; polymerase chain reaction (PCR) thermal cyclers for deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) amplification; magnetic particle-based molecular separation instruments; laboratory automation, software, and instruments; and single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) scoring systems. Consumables include reagents, microtiter plates, liquid-handling pipettes, and pipette tips. Robotic systems include individual microplate movers and other instrumentation combined with sophisticated integration software to produce application-specific workstations. These products are used primarily by pharmaceutical companies for drug discovery and development, testing, and quality control, and by biotechnology companies and universities for life science research to help fight disease and prolong life. These products are typically used on the "front end" of multi-instrument systems, to prepare and handle samples prior to the samples being loaded into other advanced instruments.

This division also includes a range of scientific equipment used for the preparation and preservation of chemical and biological samples, principally in research settings for pharmaceutical, academic, and government customers. The division's products are also used to capture and preserve samples in clinical laboratories and blood banks. Products include cell culture incubators, ultralow-temperature freezers, a full range of centrifuges (from microcentrifuges to floor models), centrifugal vacuum concentrators, biological safety cabinets, cryopreservation storage tanks, laboratory freeze-dryers, baths, and ovens.

Scientific Instruments brings together the company's core offering of instrumentation for laboratory and industrial settings, along with the automation, accessories, consumables, software, spectral reference databases, and services, to provide a complete solution.

In the life sciences arena, we offer ion trap, quadrupole, and hybrid mass spectrometers (MSs), liquid chromatographs (LCs) and columns, and hyphenated multi-instrument combinations of these products as integrated solutions (LC-MS). These systems are tailored to meet the rigorous demands of lab professionals in applications such as drug discovery, life science research, and analytical quantitation.

A significant and growing application for these instruments is proteomics, the study of proteins. Most drugs - about 90 percent - interact with proteins, so multi-instrument systems that can rapidly identify and quantify proteins are of increasing value to pharmaceutical and biotechnology customers. We continue to introduce new systems that address the breadth of primary analytical needs for high-throughput analysis and proteomics research. The sensitivity of our Finnigan LTQ ion trap and the power of our Finnigan LTQ FT hybrid MS are being used to improve protein detection, and our SEQUEST software provides higher sensitivity and accuracy for protein identification.

Beyond the life sciences market, our chemical analysis instrumentation uses various optical techniques to determine the elemental and molecular composition of a wide range of complex liquids and solids. We manufacture gas chromatography (GC), GC mass spectrometry (GC-MS), combustion analysis, atomic absorption (AA), inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometer (ICP-MS), Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR), near-infrared (NIR), Optical Emission (OE), Raman, ultraviolet/visible (UV-Vis), fluorescence, X-ray diffractometry (XRD), X-ray fluorescence (XRF), and infrared and X-ray microspectroscopy instruments. We also develop state-of-the-art advanced instrumentation, including magnetic sector MS, auger, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy systems. Customers include environmental, pharmaceutical, polymer, petrochemical, food, semiconductor, energy, coatings, geological, steel, and basic material producers, who frequently use these instruments for quality assurance and quality control applications, primarily in a laboratory.

Informatics and Services offers laboratory information management systems (LIMS), chromatography data systems, analytical data archival, and instrument integration solutions to customers in regulated and nonregulated industries such as pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, petrochemicals, chemicals, and food and beverage. We also provide desktop spectroscopy software for data processing, data management, 3-D data viewing, spectral reference databases, and chemometrics. These systems are critical to regulatory compliance because they facilitate the monitoring and analysis of samples by storing and organizing the massive amounts of analytical data gathered in laboratories, industrial settings, and clinical-testing sites.

We also provide a global services network of experienced consultants focused on the successful implementation of our customers' projects. Wide-ranging services include project planning, management of user workshops, defining business requirements, milestone delivery, systems integration, workflow modeling, and validation consultancy - in short, everything from installation to complete integration and automation of the laboratory.

In November 2003, we expanded our services offering with the acquisition of Laboratory Management Systems, Inc. (LMSi). LMSi provides laboratory instrument services, including instrument and computer systems validation, regulatory compliance, metrology, and certification as well as a range of consulting services to the pharmaceutical and related industries.

Clinical Diagnostics provides equipment and supplies used by healthcare laboratories in doctors' offices and hospitals to detect and diagnose disease.
Products in this group include sample-preparation instruments and materials to highlight abnormal cells, blood gas and ion-selective electrolyte (ISE) consumables, chemistry reagents, clinical-biochemistry instruments and automation equipment, and rapid diagnostic tests for use in physicians' offices. Our rapid diagnostic products have extremely high sensitivity and specificity to test for infectious diseases, including Group A and B streptococcus; influenza A and B; chlamydia; respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), the most common cause of lower respiratory tract infections in children worldwide; and Clostridium difficile toxin A. We also supply a complete line of equipment and consumables for anatomical pathology laboratories.
