Giving back to the scientific community is important to Thorlabs. The new lab discount program is an effort to contribute to the establishment of new labs both in research and teaching. Understanding that starting a new lab is a huge challenge in and of itself, Thorlabs would like to contribute to those scientists starting a new lab by providing a 10% discount. Discounts are provided within 12 months from the initiation of the laboratory to give the necessary time for planning, initiation, and completion. Who is eligible for the program?
Your lab can be eligible for the program if
- You are starting a new lab
- You are the principal researcher for that lab
- Your organization is a College/University or a not-for-profit research center
To apply, complete the form below and submit. The New Lab Discount is available when placing orders direct and cannot be combined with any other discount or promotion. If granted, one offer is available per Principal Researcher.
