Our unique program was developed in 2010 by bench scientists to provide Reagents for the Greater Good of life science laboratories worldwide in response to three challenges:
At Kerafast, we developed a program to put rare and unique laboratory materials to work for the benefit of science, specifically the rich bounty of research tools currently stored in the thousands of laboratory freezers lining the halls of academia. These include materials such as antibodies, cell lines, compounds, viral vectors, plasmids, etc., that may be shared currently under Material Transfer Agreements (MTA). With escalating paperwork, delays, and costs, the process of MTA exchange is becoming a heavy burden on academic labs that the program at Kerafast can remedy quickly and efficiently.
When providing labs participate in our program, procuring labs in the research community can easily find and purchase the materials online at www.kerafast.com. Kerafast actively markets and promotes these research tools to interested scientists around the world, and when the materials are purchased, we generously split the profits with the providing lab and institution.
The Benefits of "Fair Commerce"
Everyone benefits: Perhaps your lab possesses the very thing missing from a distant colleague’s research. Procuring labs gain a streamlined way to learn about and acquire rare and unique materials. MTA paperwork disappears. Procuring labs provide fair payback to support providing labs and their institution. And perhaps intriguing new doors of collaboration and partnership are opened on all sides.
