    Academic Market - ImageIn 1904, the J.T. Baker Chemical Company (now known as Avantor Performance Materials) was founded by a university student who was studying chemistry and needed higher-purity materials to complete his coursework.

    Our company was born in an academic laboratory, and academic research institutions have been important partners for Avantor for more than 110 years.

    We understand that predictable, repeatable results, unsurpassed purity and lot-to-lot consistency are essential to driving cost-effective performance in academic laboratories.

    Whether you're engaged in research & development or therapeutic drug monitoring - and whether you're looking for a premium, high-purity solution or a cost-effective value reagent - Avantor's broad global portfolio of research chemicals helps meet your unique needs and delivers consistent results.
