Perfect. Good morning everyone. This is Rachel Vatnsdal from the Life Science Tools and Diagnostics team here at J.P. Morgan. I’m joined on stage by Marc Casper, CEO of Thermo Fisher. So as we typically do, this is going to be a 40 minute session. First of it, half will be roughly 20 minutes of presentation, followed by 20 minutes of Q&A. If you do have questions, feel free to either submit them via the portal or you can pick me directly.

And with that, Marc, pass it off to you.

The year wound up turning out to be more challenging, even in the moderation of growth that we had reflected upon at that point in time.
