Thermo Opens Customer Demonstration Lab in Mumbai, India

NEW YORK, Nov. 29 (GenomeWeb News) - Thermo Electron opened a customer demonstration laboratory in Mumbai, India, the company said today.


The Mumbai demonstration center will house Thermo's laboratory and life sciences products, including ion trap and triple quadrupole mass spectrometers, centrifuges, incubators, microplate instruments, and process instruments. The site will be equipped with customer demonstration and training facilities, Thermo said.


Thermo started direct operations in India eight years ago and currently operates out of Mumbai, New Delhi, Bangalore, Pune, Hyderabad, Kolkata, and Chennai.


Including this Mumbai site, the company has opened three centers in two years. Earlier this month, the company opened a customer service and demonstration laboratory center in Shanghai, China and a manufacturing operations facility in Shanghai in December 2004.
