Apply for the New Lab Start-Up Program
The New Lab Start-Up Program gives you access to special offers that save you time and money and services to keep your lab running smoothly.
See if You Qualify
To qualify for the New Lab Start-Up Program, you must have done one of the following in the last 12 months:
- Built or established a new lab
- Received your first research grant
- Moved to a new location
Because many non-hospital institutions have affiliations with healthcare professionals (HCPs), we need to validate that your lab’s activity, personnel, and purchasing are not considered HCPs prior to admission into the New Lab Start-Up program.
To qualify, the following must be true:
- You are not a healthcare professional*
- All lab personnel are not healthcare professionals
- Purchasing for your lab is entirely separate from patient care, i.e. purchasing for the lab does not go through a department or team that makes purchases for areas of the institution involved in patient care
- Research conducted in the lab is not connected to clinical trials, patient care, patient treatment, or patient diagnosis
There are two steps required to complete the New Lab Start-Up application process. To be considered for the acceptance into the program, you must do BOTH of the following::
- Complete the form on this page
- Download and copy the most fitting version of the provided text from the links below onto your institution’s letterhead
- Complete the required fields
- Obtain the appropriate signature
- Email the completed form to NLSUSupport@thermofisher.com, citing the applicant’s name and Fisher Scientific business account number in the subject line
*The New Lab Start-Up Program as currently structured is restricted from current or potential healthcare customers, including at this time all hospitals. A healthcare professional is defined as any person or entity (a) authorized or licensed in the United States to provide healthcare services or items to patients or (b) who is involved in the decision to purchase, prescribe, order, or recommend medical technology in the United States. This term includes individual clinicians (for example, physicians, nurses, and pharmacists, among others), provider entities (for example, hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers), and administrative personnel at provider entities (for example, purchasing agents).
