I got a card today telling me Thermo Shandon is now Thermo Electron, the latest step in companies gobbleing each other up.

Only a few years ago there was the Shandon and Lipshaw companies. Shandon took over Lipshaw, who were in turn taken over by Thermo electron.

And then years ago Spencer Microtomes were taken over by American Optical, who were taken over by Reichert, and then Leica. Is that right? Will there be only one or two histology equipment companies soon?
