Last week's trivia answer

Based in Massachusetts, I'm the world leader in serving science, with annual revenue of $10 billion, more than 30,000 employees, and more than 350,000 customers within pharmaceutical and biotech companies, hospitals and clinical diagnostic labs, universities, research institutions and government agencies. I supply labs with high-end analytical instruments as well as equipment, chemicals, supplies, software, services, reagents, education and more. From beakers and slides to pipettes and syringes, to mass spectrometers and centrifuges, I have it all. My stock has grown by a compound average rate of 10 percent annually over the past 20 years. Who am I?

( Answer: Thermo Fisher Scientific )
