Thermo Fisher ScientificThermo Fisher Scientific has partnered with Seeding Labs to offer you a special opportunity: trade up your Applied Biosystems™ Thermal Cycler and give back to global science!

When you trade up your Applied Biosystems™ Veriti™, SimpliAmp™, or MiniAmp™ Thermal Cycler for an Applied Biosystems™ VeritiPro™ Thermal Cycler, your legacy instrument will be donated to an Instrumental Access scientist worldwide.

"We are excited to take our partnership with Seeding Labs to the next level with a new thermal cycler trade-in program that will run throughout 2021," says Thermo Fisher's Adam Taich, Vice President and General Manager, Molecular Biology. "When our customers are ready for the latest thermal cycler technology, they can trade in their current instrument for donation to Seeding Labs."

A thermal cycler will accelerate his research on climate-resilient crops, providing income for local farmers and combatting hunger!

Traded-in instruments will go to Instrumental Access scientists like Dr. Enoch Achigan-Dako, pictured above, who is using his expertise in native African food crops and breeding to identify scientific solutions that improve crop quality and yield.

"The PCR machine is an essential component of our research as molecular biologists," says Dr. Achigan-Dako, an associate professor in genetics & plant breeding at the Université d’Abomey-Calavi in Benin. "It will increase our capacity and improve the quality of seeds we provide to local farmers."

Your legacy instrument can provide talented scientists in developing countries with the vital resources they need to teach, innovate, and discover. All Applied Biosystems™ Veriti™ thermal cyclers are eligible for this program. 

"Worldwide, scientists are seeking to increase the pace and depth of their research by adding molecular biology to their suite of available techniques," says Melissa P. Wu, PhD, CEO of Seeding Labs. "Among our Instrumental Access partners, a thermal cycler is one of the top requested instruments. By trading up yours, you are not just putting an thermal cycler in the hands of a peer—you are expanding the realm of possibilities for researchers in all corners of the globe to innovate solutions for the diverse challenges of their communities."

Trade up today and be an instrument of change. You can help global science thrive!
