Academic Support PlanRobust and reliable, TA Instruments’ systems are used daily in over 5,000 academic institutions. We have a long history of cooperative effort with academia, facilitating placement of state-of-the-art instruments through our Academic Matching Grant and our Distinguished Young Rheolologists award program. TA values our academic customers who develop new materials, novel applications, publications, and most importantly, talented graduates that will fill future roles in industry.
This new support offering provides us with a way to extend our partnership with academic users to maintain our mutual investment in instruments and expertise. Once initiated, the ASP is renewable annually (maximum of 2 years at a time) to provide uninterrupted coverage for the life of the instrument.
