Donate Medical equipment and supplies
You have surplus equipment. It might be cycling out of your lab, replaced by newer models. It might be overstock in your warehouse. It might be a trade-in from your customers who are upgrading. All of it can be put to good use by a scientist abroad looking to unlock new discoveries.
Donating your equipment fulfills your personal and corporate values. You will help set a new standard for corporate social responsibility and demonstrate how the scientific community can “go green.” You can measurably meet your goals and climb the rankings in global sustainability indices. You may even reduce your storage costs and get a tax deduction.
We identify and vet the scientists abroad. We help you design a process that works with your asset management system. And we will work to publicize your support internally and externally. We even give you one of our badges to put on your corporate giving page!
What Medical equipment is appropriate to donate?
EQUIPMENT THAT’S IN GOOD WORKING CONDITION
ACT currently accepts research equipment in good working condition and cannot accept items that are broken, partially functional, or in need of new parts to function properly.
EQUIPMENT THAT’S NOT VERY OLD OR OBSOLETE
It is not useful to send out-of-date equipment, even if it is still working. Scientists everywhere need reliable equipment for which they can purchase the right consumables, reagents, and spare parts. Any items so out-of-date that the right accessories are no longer available can’t be accepted.
EQUIPMENT THAT’S HASN’T BEEN CUSTOM-MADE OR ALTERED
If an instrument is very specific to a certain experiment and not applicable for broad use, then it may not be appropriate for another lab.
SEALED, UNOPENED CASES OF CONSUMABLES
ACT can accept cases of consumables as long as they are still in their original sealed packaging. We can accept consumables up to one year after their expiration date.
