OEM and commercial supply FAQs

Our team has established an impressive resume of scale-up processes due to the substantial production cycles they have already successfully completed for several products. This experience gives them a better bird’s-eye view of the path to production at larger scales without sacrificing quality. With better expectations and planning, our scale-up manufacturing efforts are often incredibly efficient compared to other organizations. Leveraging our experience in scaling up our own products, and those of partners, we can apply our well-earned knowledge to minimize the risk for your product.

While manufacturing experience is a clear focus for our work and teams, it is not the only type of experience we bring to our partnerships. Bringing a product to market requires much more than just making or assembling the product—it also requires know-how to navigate regulatory, legal, and financial elements. When partnering with our OEM supply and commercialization teams, we also bring leading regulatory affairs, legal, and financial experts to support submission, approval, and market launch.

For life science product developers, the trouble starts when a key supplier runs into issues beyond their control, like starting material shortages, increased reagent demand, regulation changes, civil unrest, economic downturn, natural disasters, and disease outbreaks. In truth, it is remarkably difficult to fully insulate your product development from supply chain challenges without comprehensive standing infrastructure that can be quickly mobilized. This is where Thermo Fisher Scientific stands alone in our ability to support our partners.
