Thermo Fisher Products and Services Case Study

Small Business Consumer Products Company


This case study of a small business consumer products company is based on a June 2019 survey of Thermo Fisher Products and Services customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service. The profiled company asked to have their name blinded to protect their confidentiality.

“Thermo Fisher Lyo-ready enzymes deliver comparable performances as glycerol containing enzymes, enabling consistent and reproducible molecular diagnostic assays.”

“They have performed better than other enzymes, this has allowed us more robust amplification. " – R&D Director


The business challenges that led the profiled company to evaluate and ultimately select Thermo Fisher Products and Services:

  • Challenges they were experiencing with their previous supplier(s) that prompted them to evaluate Thermo Fisher Lyo-ready enzymes:
    • Nothing, Thermo enzyme works better than the competitor.

Use Case

The key features and functionalities of Thermo Fisher Products and Services that the surveyed company uses:

  • Thermo Fisher Lyo-ready enzyme(s) for which they have included in their molecular assay:
    • Bsm Polymerase
  • Chose Thermo Fisher Lyo-ready enzymes for their molecular diagnostics kits for the following reasons:
    • Better performance with Thermo Fisher Lyo-ready enzymes than other commercially available suppliers
  • Applications for which they already use Thermo Fisher Lyo-ready enzymes:
    • None


The surveyed company achieved the following results with Thermo Fisher Products and Services:

  • Improvements they have achieved using Thermo Fisher Lyo-ready enzymes in their assay development:
    • Robust amplification of challenging templates (e.g., low-purity, degraded)
  • Thermo Fisher capabilities compared to other suppliers evaluated or used for lyophilization-compatible enzymes:
    • Ease of adoption for lyophilization in assay development: worse
    • Breadth of product portfolio and customization capabilities: better
    • Dedicated and responsive customer/technical support: better
    • Scalability to support your future commercialization needs: worse
    • Overall performance from lyophilization-compatible enzyme(s): better
