Biotech Purchasing Programme

Biotech purchasing programme

Let us take the stress out of keeping your lab stocked…

Does this sound like your lab?


No designated Purchasing Department despite company growth


Shared responsibility for ordering or in addition to another role


Time consuming ordering procedure


Periods of little or no stock of crucial consumables and reagents


Inconsistent supplier leading to a variety of brands and departure from SOPs


Limited storage space for stock holding


Spiralling costs due to supply shortages and inflation


Deadlines to have new equipment on site but no lead time information from suppliers

If you are experiencing any of these issues we have a number of solutions for you…


“The Biotech Purchasing Programme offered by Appleton Woods is perfect for all Biotech customers out there, looking for a simplified purchasing option. Whether you have a dedicated team or shared purchasing responsibility, have huge storage space or limited capacity, or are looking to build new labs, refurbish or even meet your sustainability targets, we work collaboratively with you to help manage these needs to help take the pain out of purchasing!”
