Selling research materials
Do you have research materials in your freezer that are potentially of interest and value to others in the research community? If so, please contact the OTT so we can help you make them available for your fellow researchers everywhere.
To help make your material widely available, Upstate has entered into a relationship with KeraFAST, a life science research products company which operates a program called The Investigator’s Annexe™, a sort of Craigslist for research materials. KeraFAST will create and maintain a web page listing your material or materials, enabling interested parties to learn about them and buy a sample using a credit card. KeraFAST provides shipping labels, boxes and packing materials, so all you have to do is put the materials into the shipping container, slap on the shipping label and put the package in your out-basket.
On the other hand, if you have already been contacted by a company asking for samples of your material, the OTT will complete the sales process for you. In some cases, we may even be able to help find new customers for your materials.
Regardless of how your material is sold, fifty percent of the money received by Upstate from the sale of your material, directly or from Kerafast, will go back to your lab.
