Peak Scientific Instruments Australasia Strategic Partnership

Peak Scientific Instruments Australasia Strategic Partnership

It is with absolute delight that we announce our first Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Strategic Partnership with Peak Scientific Instruments Australasia.



Peak Scientific is a leading innovator in the design, manufacture and support of high performance gas generators for analytical laboratories. Established in the UK in 1997 near Glasgow (Scotland), where its corporate Headquarters, and high-tech manufacturing and R&D facilities reside, Peak Scientific boasts a significant local presence on every continent – including major operations in North America, China and India.

With nearly two decades of experience in pioneering reliable gas generator technology, Peak Scientific develops market-leading nitrogen, hydrogen and zero air systems mainly for the field of LC-MS (Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry) and GC (Gas Chromatography).

Their forte is in providing their customers with high quality, dependable gas generation solutions tailored to meet their specific laboratory demands. What differentiates them is their world-class technical support and on-going service care throughout the generator’s lifespan, wherever you may be in the world.

This marks our very first OEM strategic partnership, which means that we are able to keep these Peak assets in circulation for as long as possible avoiding landfill ie. as they will support any second hand Peak assets we are able to continue to keep in the market with servicing and parts for as long as possible!

Peak are also very closely aligned with our goal of sustainability as they replace hydrogen and nitrogen gas cylinders that are classified as Dangerous Goods and require ongoing transport of potentially explosive gases, with on-site generators that create the gas from air, meaning less transport, less wasted gas from unused gas in cylinders, and much safer for end users and the environment. Truly a WIN-WIN for all parties involved (how LUP always wants to work)!

This only applies to Australia & New Zealand at this time.

We are so excited to be able to work with this world-class leading life sciences brand and OEM, and look forward to a fruitful long-term relationship in order to help achieve even more in the way of Circular Economies and sustainability now and into the future.

Discover Steven through its interview !

1. Why does global wealth inequality mean so much to you & ShareTree’s values?
SF : At the root of all limitation to people’s opportunities to meet to their fullest potential & by their purpose is a limitation of enough. The amount of benefit that those receive that hold excessive wealth is completely disproportionate to the amount of limitation it poses to the rest of humanity.

Currently, the world average income ration between highest and lowest paid workers in corporations is 276 times to 1. This means the average worker that earns USD40K the highest paid worker earns USD11 million and 40K per annum, and that’s only the average.
A fair distribution of wealth through research and surveying is a ratio of 30 : 1. That is equivalent to USD40K to USD1.2 million per annum. Any realistic human being luxuriously live on USD1.2 million per annum.

It is ShareTree’s objective is to provide transparency so that people can use their buying power and employer choice power to make sustainable choices in purchasing and employment to correct this imbalance.

We will do this by educating mindsets and team cultures about gratitude for individuals, schools, community organisations and businesses. By engaging and connecting the skills of people and businesses with schools and community organisations through purpose aligned volunteering.

2. How do you see these values aligning with the broader vision of LUP?
SF : The ShareTree application provides an algorithm to connect people’s purpose and passion to the UN sustainable goals through 9 key global initiatives:

  1.  Wealth equality / Income equality
  2. Environment & Energy
  3.  Human ethics & Character
  4. Education
  5.  Clean Water & Food
  6.  Health issues
  7. Rights Equality
  8. Shelter
  9. Global Peace

LUP Global will be the ShareTree leading partner for initiatives related to 2. Environment & Energy.

3. What would be your ideal vision for our planet?
SF : To create a fairer world where every person has the opportunity to realise their full potential.

Our Growing Family : Meet Marlies Loescher, our lab equipment specialist in Western Australia

Our Growing Family : Meet Marlies Loescher, our lab equipment specialist in Western Australia

Spotlight : Our People – Profile Marlies Loescher, Category Specialist in Life Sciences and Laboratory Equipment has joined the LUP team based in Perth, Western Australia

Another part of our growing network and team, we were very excited to welcome Marlies Loescher to our growing LUP Family.

In May this year she started as Category Specialist for Laboratory equipment representing LUP making use of all her contacts and relationships fostered over the years within the science community in Perth and Australia.


Marlies studied and did her Diploma Engineer and PhD in Vienna in Biotechnology and Molecular Biology. 

During her a career as a researcher and scientist, which brought her to work in France for a few months and eventually brought her to Australia, she noticed how she always saw microscopic pictures and other fascinating laboratory results through the eye of a lens. 

After working as a researcher she got positions within scientific companies as a sales representative, product specialist and account manager dealing with consumables, kits, laboratory equipment and high end automation laboratory equipment. In between those roles she also did a phlebotomist/pathology course and worked as a phlebotomist.

Marlies highlights “My core values of integrity, compassion and care for the environment are represented within LUP as LUP wants to prevent assets from going into landfill and mining more raw materials from the planet which is a form of protecting the environment and LUP’s code of ethics makes clear that integrity is a core value for the organisation as well. It is/was the alignment of values that made me want to be part of the mission of LUP and help it to grow big and globally.”

Marlies grew up interested in observing nature particularly in the forests and fields of Lower Austria. Being given her first camera when she was eleven ignited a passion for photographing nature and animals and thriving for conservation and preserving the wonders of nature. 


To add professionalism to her natural talent in capturing most natural moments of people’s, animals’ and nature’s expressions she took courses and worked with a photographer alongside her fulltime sales position.

She began working on a series of portrait sessions of people’s pets, as well as focusing on portraying rescue animals of animal sanctuaries around Perth while volunteering. Marlies has been in Cambodia and Laos at Free The Bears sanctuaries several times doing volunteer work as well as in an Orangutan sanctuary in Malaysia.
