Thermo Fisher Scientific, Phononic Expand Partnership

Phononic, a global provider of solid-state cooling and semiconductor innovation, recently announced an expanded partnership with Thermo Fisher Scientific that will create an exclusive channel for life sciences and healthcare customers to purchase its solid-state refrigeration and freezer products. End users will benefit from new efficiencies in order placement, contract management and order fulfillment as well as access to Thermo Fisher’s technical support team.

“There is no harder proving ground for a technology than laboratories, hospitals, clinics and pharmacies. With a now-established market foothold achieved through differentiated solid-state products with not-thought-possible features, the time is now to disrupt the status quo and establish a new standard of care,” says Tony Atti, CEO and founder of Phononic. “Thermo Fisher Scientific has a legacy commitment to sustainability and innovation and provides the ideal partner to deliver solid-state solutions on a global scale.”

Phononic’s compressor-free, solid-state refrigeration technology provides temperature stability that protects high-value inventory, quiet operation for in-room use, cleanroom-compatible readiness, and sustainable ENERGY STAR® efficiency. The system requires minimal maintenance and is without moving parts.

“As the world leader in serving science, we’re continuously advancing our portfolio to address the needs of our customers,” said Sung-Dae Hong, VP and GM, Laboratory Equipment Technologies at Thermo Fisher Scientific. “Phononic’s innovative technology helps us meet even the most demanding cold storage requirements for healthcare and life science customers, and we’re pleased to make it part of our offering to customers worldwide.”

Having already collaborated on the Thermo Scientific TSX 505 Series high-performance undercounter lab refrigerators, as part of the new agreement, Thermo Fisher will now be the exclusive supplier of Phononic-cooled products to the life sciences and healthcare markets. Phononic will retain and honor its technical support and service commitments for all Evolve products currently in the field.
