Introducing the Lab-Forward Trade-In Program for IC

Trading in your current IC system has never been faster or easier. You can trade in a Thermo Fisher Scientific instrument or an instrument from another manufacturer for valuable credit toward one of the state-of-the-art IC systems in our portfolio. We even have flexible financing options to reduce the impact on your budget. The Lab-Forward Trade-In Program is our way of helping you keep up with the speed of science.

Benefits

Why trade up to a new IC instrument?

You know the ins and outs of your lab’s workflow better than anyone else. More than likely, you have a running list of bottlenecks in your existing analytical workflow that you would like to work out. Perhaps you already know the way to accelerate your work is to upgrade to the latest technology or even switch vendors altogether. However, making that leap can seem like an enormous commitment. And yet, for every reason you may have to hang on to your current instruments, there is a list of reasons to trade up to the latest we have to offer. The following is just a glimpse of the benefits you can expect.

  • Take full advantage of the latest IC columns and consumables
  • Greater accuracy, reproducibility, and robustness
  • Faster run times for higher throughput
  • Simplified operation that reduces training costs and saves time
  • Guaranteed access to the service, support and parts you need

FAQs

The value of your current IC system will be evaluated by trained Thermo Fisher Scientific personnel based on type of instrument, age and condition. We’ll ask you some questions on the history of your system in order to provide an accurate estimate on its value.

Most IC systems are eligible for a trade-in credit. Eligible systems include, but are not limited to: 

  • Discontinued Thermo Scientific Dionex IC systems
  • Other vendor systems

Please note that for modular IC systems, a pump must be included to qualify for a trade-in.

The value of the system traded in will be dependent on type, age and condition. 

Leave the heavy lifting to us. If you decide that you would like to trade up to a new IC system, we will arrange for proper transportation that is free of charge.

Your old IC will undergo an inspection to determine if any of the components can be reused or recycled. Rest assured that all activities relating to the processing of your IC system will be managed in an environmentally responsible way.

Currently, this promotion covers the United States, Canada and Europe.

We have your back on method transfer and training with specialized staff who can give you a helping hand. Do not hesitate to reach out to your local sales contact for details.
