TWO THERMO INNOVATIONS NAMED TO POPULAR SCIENCE'S 'BEST OF WHAT'S NEW'
 WALTHAM, Mass., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Two technological innovations developed by Thermo Electron Corporation (NYSE: TMO) are included in this year's "Best of What's New" list compiled by Popular Science magazine.
 The EGIS(R) explosives detector, manufactured by Thermo Electron's Thermedics Inc. (ASE: TMD) subsidiary, is a vapor detection system that is sensitive enough to detect even trace amounts of explosives, including the plastics. The EGIS system is currently being used in more than a dozen international airports around the world to increase protection against the threat of terrorist bombs.
 The battery-powered HeartMate(tm) left ventricular-assist device, developed by Thermo Cardiosystems Inc. (AMEX: TCA), a subsidiary of Thermedics and Thermo Electron, is being used to support patients awaiting heart transplantation while also offering them a much higher degree of mobility than has ever before been available on a ventricular- assist system.
 "We are very pleased that both of these promising technologies have been recognized by Popular Science magazine," said George N. Hatsopoulos, chairman and president of Thermo Electron.
 Thermo Electron develops, manufactures, and markets environmental and analytical instruments, custom-engineered and pre-packaged cogeneration systems, industrial process equipment, biomedical materials and products, and fabricated biomedical and aerospace components. The company also provides metallurgical heat treating, water quality engineering, and analytical laboratory services.
