The Reagent Project aims to level the playing field for scientists. We collect donated lab materials from labs that have an abundance of resources and redistribute those items to scientists and STEM educators in need.
We all benefit when more scientists participate in innovative research!
Why does science need you?
Whether domestically or internationally, the goal of a scientist is universal: to contribute to the body of truths that explain our natural world. Often, this ‘collection of truths’ can make monumental changes in the human condition, but to date, only those with the financial means to pursue this endeavor contribute.
The Reagent Project aims to address one important bottleneck to equalize scientific contributions: access to equipment and reagents.
How much waste is there?
Reagents accumulate as a natural byproduct of engaging in scientific research. But how much is available for collection? We visited a local biotech company to find out.
Wasted reagents: expired, brand new or lightly used
