Our Mission in action

Maddie-Young2-resized for web

Madison was diagnosed with a rare pediatric cancer at just four months old. After traditional treatment failed to eradicate the cancer, Madison’s doctors recommended a clinical trial designed to leverage genetic analysis tools that could help guide them to targeted therapies.

Doctors used our next-generation sequencing (NGS) platform to analyze the genetic mutations found within Madison’s tumor and recommend a drug treatment plan specific to her cancer.  Four years after treatment she is cancer-free.

Army PET Filament-resized for web

In 2018, the U.S. Army started doing testing on Thermo Fisher Scientific™ Parallel Twin-Screw Extruder, using it to produce 3D filament from post-consumer polyethylene terephthalate (PET) found in plastic water bottles – one of the most common waste products left on the battlefield. This filament will be used to 3D print spare parts as needed to increase wartime readiness and reduce dependency on the logistical supply chain. The process will result in less plastic waste and will lower cost and shorten the lead time to get replacement parts to troops in remote areas.

“With our enemies forced to innovate rapidly to survive, it’s becoming increasingly important for the U.S. military to improve it’s own agility and flexibility. With additive manufacturing, parts could be produced where they are needed, when they’re needed.” – Nicole Zander, U.S. Army Research Lab

Dosimetry

There is a growing need for monitoring of radiation exposure driven by an increase global awareness of the link between levels of exposure and cancer. Daily monitoring for radiation exposure is standard regulatory procedure in medical and imaging facilities, dental offices, veterinary clinics, nuclear power plants, laboratories and other industries that work with sources of radiation.  To safeguard employees from the dangers of radiation exposure and ensure a secure work environment, these facility operators turn to Thermo Fisher Scientific.

After more than 30 years of working with customers on dosimetry equipment selection and deployment, Thermo Fisher has launched a dosimetry monitoring service that streamlines the radiation safety process for customers through a single provider, providing support to smaller offices and providers who may have difficulty managing dosimetry programs on their own.   Our service delivers personal radiation measurement badges – dosimeters – which provide readings about the dose of ionizing radiation an individual receives. The badge data is then read to produce recurrent dose reports, creating a harmonized approach to internal dosimetry processing.
