Research the Cure™
At Arbor Assays we believe we should be proactive in providing community support and giving back. One way we support the community is by making a charitable donation based upon every kit product purchased as part of our “Research the Cure™ program. Each year, the proceeds are donated directly to a charity supporting medical research. For 2020, we have chosen The Robert Packard Center for ALS Research. The Packard Center is the only institution of its kind to dedicate its research solely to Lou Gehrig’s disease. Today, over 100 scientists from John’s Hopkins, other universities and biotech companies work together to understand the biology of ALS and find a cure.
Previously Recognized Charities:
- The Scleroderma Research Foundation (2020)
- The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (2018)
- The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) (2017)
- National Organization for Rare Disorders (2016)
- Brain Research Foundation (2015)
- American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association (AARDA) (2014)
- Joslin Diabetes Center (2013)
- Charcot Foundation (2012)
- Cystic Fibrosis Trust (2011)
- Collaborative Research Centers of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (2010)
Our level of contribution is a fixed dollar amount for every 1 or 2 plate kit we sell regardless of list price. We also contribute 4 times that dollar amount for every 5 or 10 plate kit sold. When we give you a discount, the contribution amount remains the same. It’s just our way of returning something to the research community.
This is in addition to, and does not negatively effect, our charity efforts like our record contributions to the Walk MS and the You Publish, We Donate program.

Annual Multiple Sclerosis Walk – COME JOIN THE MOVEMENT!
April 25, 2020 at Monument Park in Dexter, Michigan
Every year since our start in 2007, we’ve formed an Arbor Assays team for Walk MS. For many years before our company existed, we’ve been walking together for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society because the NMSS funds more MS research than any other private organization. In addition to studies which seek to identify the cause and course of the disease, NMSS also provides much needed education, programs, and services to everyone affected by MS – the diagnosed, their friends and family, and the healthcare professionals who work with them.
Come and join, or donate.
Stay tuned to donate to Team Arbor Assays for our upcoming MS Walk event, visit our Team Page!
