To lead its growth and operations in Indonesia, Thermo Fisher has appointed Devi Darmadi as the country general manager. In this role, Darmadi will spearhead strategic initiatives and go-to-market evolution, geared toward expanding the company’s footprint in Indonesia.

Thermo Fisher has previously also forged a strong partnership with National Research and Innovation Agency of Indonesia (BRIN, Badan Riset dan Inovasi Nasional) to strengthen research infrastructure and capabilities in the country. By leveraging its expertise and extensive portfolio, Thermo Fisher has become a key partner in supporting BRIN’s goal of improving competencies and capacities for Indonesian researchers.

On February 24, Thermo Fisher also organized two scientific forums in Jakarta, bringing together industry experts and professionals. The forums facilitated discussions on transforming healthcare and pushing boundaries in lab solutions. Sessions included demonstrations of solutions available in Indonesia and their impact on labs and healthcare. Thermo Fisher also presented its extensive range of comprehensive solutions in areas of molecular diagnostics, oncology, clinical diagnosis, molecular spectroscopy, microbiology, toxicology, and sample storage.
