As cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) continues to usher in a new era of life sciences research, a wide range of organizations are incorporating this leading-edge technique into their research labs. Yet many institutions have difficulty coming up with the large capital expense.
To address this issue, Thermo Fisher offers a Managed Equipment Services (MES) solution, a new program that lets organizations bundle all the hardware, software, and support services they need into a single subscription contract at a fixed payment.
With MES, commercial and academic research labs can obtain all the components they need under a single contract including equipment, software, instrument add-ons, and warranties—along with services such as site preparation and technical support.
This flexible funding solution enables institutions that can’t afford the large one-time capital expense to obtain quick access to the cryo-EM technology they need—so they can advance their scientific research while conserving their capital.
MES offers the following benefits:
- An optimized cash flow: With MES, organizations can shift from a large, one-time capital outlay to more affordable operating expenses paid on a monthly, quarterly, or annual schedule.
- Simplified purchasing: MES reduces procurement complexity by bundling all of the hardware, software, and services needed into a single contract.
- Access to the latest cutting-edge technology:Organizations can avoid obsolete equipment by refreshing their technology on a three- to seven-year cycle.
Our MES programs range from 36 to 84 months and are available to commercial, nonprofit, and academic research labs across the United States. If you want to incorporate cryo-EM into your research lab but can’t afford the capital expense, MES may offer the path forward you need.
We will be hosting a webinar on our finance options, including our MES solution, on June 17, 2020. Register here.
