Avantor® works to give academic researchers the materials and tools they need to overcome obstacles and produce breakthrough results while operating efficient, productive research laboratories.

Our involvement in laboratory research has its roots in our company’s history: one of our preceding businesses, the J.T.Baker® Chemical Company was founded by a university chemical student who needed higher-purity materials to complete his coursework.
