Institutional Investor Magazineunveiled its 2010 all-America research team on Tuesday ranking the top analysts in every sector.

Who was their number one pick for life sciences?

It’s Derik De Bruin of UBS -- and immediately after receiving the high honor De Bruin dropped by Fast Money with his top stocks in the space.

"Life sciences is more than just products for drug discovery," explains De Bruin. "They have real world applications."

And in the space his favorite play is Thermo-Fisher Scientific. "It’s a good steady-Eddie grower, he says and "it touches a wide range of areas from air, and water quality, to hospitals and more."

And in the related area of genetic analysis De Bruin’s favorite pick is Illumina as well as Life Technologies.

* Life sciences is a complex area and De Bruin had a lot to say about all these companies. Check out our entire conversation. Watch the video now!
