What are your current promotions?
What if I already have storage units at my institution?

Your Supply Center is customized to fit your research—we will work with you to ensure that you have the appropriate storage units and capacity to operate the Supply Center as effectively as possible.

Can I order non‐stocked items?

Dependent on your institution, Supply Center users can add nonstock items to your Supply Center shipment. With the Supply Center Management System (SCMS), you also have the option of shipping directly to your lab via next-day delivery (freight/shipping charges would apply).

How do I order through my Supply Center?

The quickest way to order from your Supply Center is through lifetechnologies.com

  • If you do not have a lifetechnologies.com username and password, complete the online registration form: if your Supply Center is linked to SCMS, a window will appear with selection options—please follow the instructions

How can I link to multiple SCMS sites?

Can I place an order while my registration is pending?

Activation (account approval) for online ordering may take 24–48 hours. During this time you will be able to sign in and place orders. However, orders placed while registration is pending account approval will remain on hold. Once registration has been approved and an account is associated, you will receive an email notification and your pending order(s) will be processed.

How do I find my sales representative?

Contact Supply Center Customer Service (see above) for your sales representative contact information.

How do I add, remove, and adjust stocking levels?

By filling out this online web form (product request), your inquiry will be received by a member of our Supply Center team. You can also request new products, remove products, and adjust stock levels by contacting your sales representative.

How do I open a Supply Center?

The quickest way to open a Supply Center is to contact your sales representative and express your interest. Once contact has been initiated, a meeting will be scheduled to gather some basic information, and from there a member of the Supply Center team will work diligently to equip your account with the right storage units and your favorite Thermo Scientific™ and Life Technologies™ products.
