Thermo Electron Corporation (NYSE: TMO), the world leader in analytical instruments, today announced the opening of a new customer demonstration laboratory in Mumbai, India, to serve local pharmaceutical, petroleum/petrochemical, automobile, environmental and agricultural market sectors. The new site will be equipped with state-of-the-art customer demonstration and training facilities, offering customers in this region hands-on experience with Thermo's laboratory and manufacturing process solutions.

The Mumbai demonstration center will house laboratory and life sciences solutions, including ion trap and triple quadrupole mass spectrometers, centrifuges, incubators and microplate instruments, along with several process instruments. Customers visiting the facility will have the opportunity to receive training on these solutions, and will be able to analyze samples before making purchase decisions.

"As the leading instruments company and premier supplier to the lab, we are committed to expanding our presence where science and industry are moving forward. Building Thermo's capabilities throughout India and across Asia is a logical and important part of this growth strategy," Marijn Dekkers, president and CEO of Thermo Electron, said. "India and the surrounding regions represent a major market for laboratory and process instrumentation, and therefore, a tremendous opportunity for long-term growth and expansion for Thermo."

Thermo started its direct operations in India eight years ago to serve its customers in this region. In addition to Mumbai, Thermo also operates out of locations in New Delhi, Bangalore, Pune, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Chennai.

The new facility in Mumbai is one of three major centers Thermo has opened over the past two years. Earlier this month, Thermo opened a 43,000 square foot customer service and demonstration laboratory center in Shanghai, China. In December of 2004, Thermo announced the expansion of its manufacturing operations in China with the introduction of a new 90,000 square foot facility that increased manufacturing capacity in Shanghai by more than four times. This facility now serves as a center for Asian operations, and is becoming a
central point for supply chain management and logistics for Thermo worldwide.
