Your donations can help accelerate research and improve health!

Thanks to donations from Thermo Fisher Scientific, scientists like Dr. Robert Paulino-Ramirez (above, seated) are able to better tackle global challenges.

With equipment from Seeding Labs, Dr. Paulino-Ramirez opened the Dominican Republic's first research institute dedicated to tropical medicine and global health.

Armed with the tools he needed—including equipment donationed by Thermo Fisher Scientific—Dr. Paulino-Ramirez super-charged his research to benefit public health.

He's running the nation's first clinical trial of the HIV preventive treatment PrEP, as well as monitoring diseases spread by mosquitoes

Equipment was the beginning. A healthier Dominican Republic is the result!

Thermo Fisher Scientific & Seeding Labs: Making an Impact on Global Science Since 2011

Thermo Fisher Scientific has been supporting Seeding Labs since 2011, when we launched a NanoDrop trade-in program.

As our first partner from the manufacturing industry, we recognized Thermo Fisher's commitment to global science with our 2018 Global Visionary Award.

Since then, equipment donations from Thermo Fisher have been included in 53 Instrumental Access shipments.

These instruments have found a productive second home at 44 universities in 25 developing countries!

Thanks to Thermo Fisher Scientific, thousands of students and scientists have the tools they need to research, innovate, and discover.
