What makes Thermo Fisher’s greener product alternatives different?

  • Less hazardous: products are either inherently less hazardous, or those that generate less hazardous waste
  • Less waste: products generate less waste and/or use fewer resources, reducing the need to use other materials like disposable plastics
  • Energy-efficient: products, including instruments and equipment, operate with less energy than comparable products; our energy-efficient reagents are designed to be stored ambient, saving freezer space as well
  • Sustainable packaging: includes reduced packaging material for products as well as updated product designs that include recyclable packaging
  • Sustainable disposal: includes products that have recycling or take-back programs, as well as products that are designed to be upgradable to extend their useful life
