Acquisition Reinforces Thermo Fisher's Extensive Portfolio of Laboratory Centrifuge Rotors

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (NYSE: TMO), the world leader in serving science, today announced that it has acquired FIBERLite Centrifuge, Inc., of Santa Clara, California. FIBERLite is the world's foremost supplier of carbon fiber centrifuge rotors, a strong and lightweight alternative that provides customers with a number of advantages over traditional metal rotors, including performance, safety, productivity and durability.

"We have been offering FIBERLite rotors as an alternative to aluminum and titanium rotors in our Thermo Scientific laboratory centrifuges for several years, and we have seen customer demand for the technology continue to grow," said Marijn E. Dekkers, president and chief executive officer of Thermo Fisher Scientific. "FIBERLite's patented carbon fiber rotors, along with its strong patent portfolio, will enhance our centrifugation offering and bring additional R&D capabilities."

Thermo Fisher Scientific designs, develops and manufactures a comprehensive range of high-quality centrifuges, rotors and accessories under the Thermo Scientific brand. Centrifuge models range from bench-top microcentrifuges to floor-standing ultracentrifuges, allowing Thermo Fisher Scientific to support all laboratory applications, from routine sample preparation to cutting-edge cell and molecular biology research techniques.

FIBERLite, which had revenues of approximately $7 million in 2007, will be integrated into Thermo Fisher's Laboratory Products and Services Segment.
