es an offering of instruments, 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 and services are used by customers in pharmaceutical, biotechnology, academic, government, environmental and other research and industrial markets, as well as the clinical laboratory. This segment includes three primary businesses: Chromatography and Analytical Technologies, MS, and Chemical Analysis. Chromatography and Analytical Technologies The company’s chromatography and analytical technologies 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. 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 high performance liquid chromatography (LC), ion chromatography (IC), and gas chromatography (GC) systems, all of which are supported by the company’s Chromeleon chromatography data system software. The company’s range of consumables and environmental sampling products complete the workflow solution. LC Systems analyze complex sample matrices in liquids. The company’s high pressure liquid chromatography and ultrahigh pressure liquid chromatography systems offer high throughput and sensitivity and are sold either as stand-alone systems or integrated with the company’s mass spectrometers (LC/MS and LC/MS/MS). These systems are used for a range of applications, from complex proteomic analyses to routine industrial QA/QC. IC Systems separate ionic (charged) or highly polar molecules (sugars and carbohydrates), usually found in water-based solutions, and typically detect them based on their electrical conductivity. The company’s IC products are used in a range of applications, including scientific research, and environmental testing, as well as quality control in pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and other industrial processes. GC Systems analyze complex sample matrices in gases, comprising both separation and detection technology. Separation technology is common to all GC analyzers, and is paired with either a conventional detector (GC) or with different types of mass spectrometers (GC/MS). The company’s GC/MS offering includes a triple stage quadrupole, a single stage quadrupole, and an ion trap, for a range of applications, including food safety testing, quantitative screening of environmental samples, and complex molecular analyses. Elemental Analysis Spectrometers use atomic spectroscopy techniques to identify trace concentrations of elements in liquid and solid samples primarily in environmental, petrochemical, food safety, metallurgical, geochemical and clinical/toxicology research applications. These products are used in growth markets, such as China, India and Latin America to support compliance with international environmental and consumer safety regulations. MS MS 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 MS systems; and inorganic MS systems, as well as a range of sample preparation and separation products, including auto-samplers and multiplexing systems. Life Sciences MSs include three major product lines, such as triple quadrupole, ion trap and hybrid systems. The company’s triple quadrupole systems provide high performance 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. The company’s ion trap systems are used f
