ThermoFisher Scientific's Supply Center at Hess Freezer Farm

The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai has partnered with ThermoFisher Scientific to host their Supply Center operation at our Hess Freezer Farm. The benefits include:

  • Shipping is free
  • Majority of orders will be delivered within 24-48 hours
    • Check your order status with your purchase order number and Zip code
    • Delays or back-ordered items can be addressed with Thermo Fisher at (888) 584-8840 or supplycenters@thermofisher.com
  • We assist with tracking lost orders and replacement items that are lost or damaged

To set up an account, please email SupplyCenter@mssm.edu, and we will notify our Thermofisher Account Manager, Lindsey Kemp, to create your account. Once your account is created, you may place orders using your lab or department fund number(s). After you place your order, the SupplyCenter@mssm.edu email address will receive a notification to approve your order. Once any item within your order is received, we unpack, label, contact you, and store item(s) at the appropriate temperatures until you pick up your item(s).

All orders placed outside of this operation are considered non-Hess Supply Center orders and direct Thermofisher/Fisher Scientific Life Sciences purchases. Thus, we will not be responsible for follow-up on missing items/shipments or replacements. Since you placed a direct order, you must follow up directly with Thermofisher or Fisher Scientific Life Sciences.

Our location is:
