Thermo Fisher Scientific
Thermo Fisher Scientific is a self-described “world leader in serving science.” The company, whose brands include Thermo Scientific, Applied Biosystems, and Patheon, among others, is a global provider of scientific instruments, software, and services for laboratories in a wide range of industries as well as in government and academia. With over 80,000 employees worldwide, Thermo Fisher Scientific was formed in the 2006 merger of Thermo Electron and Fisher Scientific. As early as March 2020, the FDA issued emergency use authorization (EUA) to Thermo Fisher for a COVID-19 diagnostic test. Since then, the FDA has granted EUAs for other Thermo Fisher COVID-19 diagnostics, including, in February 2021, a kit for detecting and differentiating among SARS-CoV-2, influenza A, and influenza B in nasal swabs.
