Establishing a cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) laboratory advances scientific research, providing tangible benefits across the entire institution. Yet sometimes customers don’t have the resources to pay for the equipment and infrastructure or know where they can raise the necessary funding. Thermo Fisher Scientific can help your organization develop a financial plan, pinpointing potential funding sources, and providing unique financing options tailored to meet your specific needs.
Financing the equipment for a cryo-EM lab can be a challenge. Our finance professionals understand the unique procurement requirements of universities, governments, industry, and research labs—and we offer innovative financing options to help meet your bottom-line goals.
Managed Equipment Services (MES) lets you bundle all the hardware, software, and support services you need into a single subscription contract at a fixed payment. With MES, you can:
Lease all the components you need under a single contract:
Our MES terms are 36 to 84 months with options to assume ownership, return the equipment, or upgrade new technology at the end of the term. The program is available to all qualifying US research organizations including academic, government, commercial, and nonprofit.
Our Bridge to Grant (B2G) program offers bridge funding to help academic institutions set up their cryo-EM lab while waiting for their grant application to be approved:
B2G is a 3- to 12-month deferral solution that adheres to NIH grant guidelines. The program is available to US and EU academic institutions awaiting approval on a cryo-EM equipment grant application.
