Our Mission

Reagents for the Greater Good

Our mission is serving an interconnected global community of life science investigators advancing Science through ‘fair commerce’ in laboratory-derived academic research reagents. We provide a large and ever growing collection of rare and unique life science research tools from the laboratories of principal investigators in prominent research institutions around the world and make them easily accessible to procuring laboratories in a convenient, searchable digital marketplace.

These rare and often one-of-a-kind research materials are not developed or manufactured by KeraFAST, but rather are produced by the investigators themselves in the course of their work. Like the unique rarities you may find in an antique store, these ‘as-is’ materials may be in limited supply, but may be just what your experiments require, and we expedite their delivery through a rapid on-line material transfer ‘click license’ for research use.

‘Fair Commerce’ in an Interconnected Community

We work with scientists far and wide in The Investigator’s Annexe to make readily available tools that are not found elsewhere. Then, the proceeds from the sale of the materials are shared generously with the providing investigator and his or her institution. In this way, researchers who procure these materials not only more quickly advance their own research, they also benefit future research both from fair “payback” to the providing laboratory and “paying forward” to the providing institution’s scientific and educational mission. Since any academic procurer can also be a provider, the entire interconnected community benefits for the greater good of Science.
