What is RAPID?
RAPID (Remote Access Program for Interactive Diagnostics) is a service program that allows ARL instrument users to receive support from Thermo Fisher Scientific ARL remote support team through a VPN connection. RAPID reduces the time to solve problems, helping users to be up-andrunning at all times. With the consent of the user, trained ARL remote support team can perform the following actions using RAPID.
- Run service test software and diagnostics on Thermo Scientific ARL instruments
- Optimize system performance
- Check and modify system settings
- Patch and upgrade software
If needed, a specialist from anywhere in the world can be invited to a RAPID support session, further shortening the time to solution.
The secure RAPID infrastructure
Our network configuration makes it easy to connect with Thermo Fisher Scientific through your corporate or institutional network in a secure fashion (see Figure 1 in the ARL RAPID remote diagnostics flyer). The RAPID Secure Portal is central to the RAPID infrastructure. A secure Linux server manages all connections between your instruments and Thermo Fisher Scientific ARL remote support team. To reduce vulnerabilities, Thermo Scientific Secure Portals are located in demilitarized zones (DMZs) outside the main corporate network. Each portal is secured with a firewall and has the minimum number of ports open to the outside world.
To enhance global performance and network availability, three Secure Portals have been deployed: in Eindhoven, The Netherlands; in Hillsboro, Oregon, USA. In addition to the Thermo Scientific Secure Portals, RAPID includes important security features designed to help prevent unauthorized connections and to ensure you control access to all RAPID sessions.

This option includes on-site installation of equipment, a visual inspection of the unit as well as testing of the installed instrument and operating instructions. An installation certificate confirms and logs the services that were conducted.
The installation qualification gives you the certification that all the checks have been carried out to ensure that the equipment is correctly positioned and configured, but also that all the supplies comply with the established specifications.
An extended warranty is available with the same benefits as the original warranty. After the extended warranty expires, our service optionsoffer further solutions for continued product support.
With this partnership, you focus on creating excellent products, and we focus on delivering service excellence.
We offer a variety of support plans and options to meet your needs.
- Installation, repairs and calibration
- Support plans
- Preventative maintenance
- Certification/compliance services
- Technical support
- Training and education services
- Parts, accessories and consumables
With each of our plans, you benefit from a selection of guaranteed response times and predictable costs that include travel expenses, labor and replacement parts.
This service guarantees your OES, XRF and XRD instruments meet validation and standardization requirements such as ISO 9001, CE, etc.
- The Operation Qualification (OQ) procedure reproduces the OQ performed in the Quality Assurance (QA) of the factory and confirms that the instrument is operational by proof of the validation report.
- Preventive maintenance is available as a one-time on demand service. It is also included in all our service contracts.
- Emergency response is included in the preventive maintenance and provides priority remote support, shorter response times on on-site corrective repairs.
We manufacture equipment to the highest quality standards, but should an unexpected repair event occur, our certified Thermo Fisher Scientific Service Engineer will perform the repair on site ensuring the results meet internationally recognized standards. With assistance from state of-the-art software, our experts can more rapidly analyze problems and determine solutions.
Proper knowledge and skills to operate the instrument are crucial to generating reliable results. We offer a broad range of instrument training programs as well as application training in our application laboratories or at customer site to ensure that your employees receive solid theoretical knowledge.
Your staff needs adequate knowledge and skills to operate instruments properly and get reliable results. Over our many years of experience, we’ve developed first-rate user training methods to help ensure that your staff achieves accurate results and consistent quality when using Thermo Scientific OES, XRF, XRD and automated instruments.
- Instrument training days or training-center-based application training for solid theoretical knowledge and practical experience on the instrument and analysis.
- On-site or in-school trainings are available.
- Analytical support can be provided as a service at the customer site by a factory specialist or by a certified Field Service Engineer.
