Welcome friends of Thermo Fisher Scientific!
Trade up your Applied Biosystems™ thermal cycler & support global science
Thermo Fisher Scientific has partnered with Seeding Labs to offer you a special promotion: trade up your Applied Biosystems™ thermal cycler and save, while giving back to global science!
Your traded-in thermal cycler will be sent to Seeding Labs. We will make sure it gets into the hands of researchers in developing countries through our Instrumental Access program.
You can provide talented scientists with the vital resources they need to teach, innovate, and discover.
So trade up and save today, while supporting global science!
Here's how it works...
Step 1: Inventory & Assess
Check the list of qualified thermal cyclers to see if yours is eligible for this promotion.
Make sure your thermal cycler planned for trade in is fully operational. We cannot accept broken or damaged units.
Step 2: Trade Up & Save
Talk to your Thermo Fisher Scientific sales rep about how to select and save when you upgrade your Applied Biosystems™ thermal cycler. See available units here.
Your purchase through this special promotion comes with free plastics and a 2-year warranty!
Step 3: Donate & Make a Difference
Make sure your thermal cycler is marked for donation in the "reason for return" field of your decontamination form.
Your Thermo Fisher Scientific sales rep will help you pack equipment for shipment to Thermo Fisher Scientific, who is collecting equipment for donation to Seeding Labs.
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!
"Now we can be part of a global research network in a more inclusive way because of the infrastructure we have."

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.
"We're proud of our long-standing relationship with Seeding Labs and we look forward to supporting them and their ongoing efforts to help researchers advance science globally."
