Thermo Fisher Scientific Introduces Unity Lab Services

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (NYSE: TMO), the world leader in serving science, today introduced Unity™ Lab Services, a new offering that combines product and laboratory support services to create a single solution for customers to optimize productivity and reduce their total cost of laboratory operations.

Unity Lab Services represents a range of capabilities, from traditional laboratory instrument and equipment services to enterprise-level support, including business analytics for continuous improvement, and management of laboratory staffing and consumables inventory. These services can be implemented across a broad range of laboratory environments and can be scaled from service on a single instrument to a highly customized, comprehensive service program at the laboratory, site or enterprise level.

“In today’s business climate our customers are looking for additional ways to increase productivity and reduce costs, and we’ve demonstrated that our integrated services management program can have a dramatic impact on both,” said Marc N. Casper, president and chief executive officer of Thermo Fisher Scientific. “This progression to a single solution for all the services required to operate a laboratory is a model that supports innovation and generates greater efficiencies for our customers.”

Unity Lab Services incorporates best practices in lean enterprise, continuous improvement and change management to create immediate and measurable productivity gains. It also leverages processes that have been developed over time for the company’s extensive customer base and encompasses several key industries, including pharmaceutical, chemical, and process industries.
