Introducing the Lab-Forward Trade-Up Program for Thermo Scientific MS

Trading up your current MS system has never been faster or easier. You can trade a Thermo Fisher Scientific instrument or an instrument from another manufacturer for valuable credit toward one of the state-of-the-art Thermo Scientific Orbitrap mass spectrometer, Themo Scientific TSQ triple quadrupole mass spectrometers, or a Thermo Scientific ISQ EC single quadrupole mass spectrometer and a Thermo Scientific ISQ EM single quadrupole mass spectrometer in our portfolio. We even have flexible financing options to reduce the impact on your budget. The Lab-Forward Trade-Up Program is our way of helping you keep up with the speed of science.


Why trade up to a new MS 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:

  • Higher performance for higher lab productivity
  • Improved reliability for lower cost of ownership
  • Access to information rich data and results with everyday usability
  • Robust, reliable and maintainable instruments
  • Convenience of dealing with a single, trusted vendor – no brokers, no hassles
  • Seamless removal of your trade-in instrument at no additional cost
