How it Works


Step 1: Qualify

To qualify for the New Lab Start-Up Program, you must have:

  • Built or established a new lab 
  • Received your first research grant 
  • Moved to a new location

Once your application is accepted, you’ll receive a welcome email with your unique PIN. And keep your PIN handy. You’ll need it every time you make a New Lab Start-Up purchase.

Step 2: Shop

When you find a promotion you’d like to redeem, purchase the product while logged into your Fisher Scientific account.

When your PIN is ready, access the redemption center at the top of this page. At this point, you’ll be prompted for your PIN and email address.

Select the manufacturer or brand associated with the promotion you wish to redeem, then choose the appropriate offer. A PDF that lists all the redeemable products for your chosen promotion will appear for you to review and make your choice.

When you’ve chosen your redeemable product(s), enter the catalog number(s) into the field(s) that appear.

Step 3: Save

Finally, enter your order number and hit the “Submit” button. That’s it! Take advantage of as many New Lab Start-Up promotions as you’d like during your membership in the program.

You will receive your redeemable product(s) approximately six to eight weeks after your submission.
