Biochemical refer to any chemical that is found in a biological system or that can be used for biological research. Biochemical compounds include molecules such as amino acids, vitamins, and nucleotides as well as organic and inorganic chemicals that have life science applications. Biochemical reagents can be salts, detergents, and other small molecules that have biological assays or the investigation of biological reactions.

Thermo Scientific offers a broad selection of high-purity biochemical reagents for life science research. We manufacture and supply an extensive range of reagent grades and variants for life science research areas including, but not limited to, genomic and proteomic analysis, cell culture, molecular biology, and imaging.
