PALO ALTO, Calif., Oct. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Quartzy.com, the world's premier free online laboratory management platform, announced today the signing of three major strategic partners to support its goal of simplifying laboratory management and inventory replenishment nationwide.
The three new partners — Rainin, Essendant and Medline — will expand Quartzy's supply chain in a wide variety of areas, from lab coveralls to pipettes and sterile instruments to office supplies of all kinds.
"We're working aggressively to add partners who can support the growing demand from our members, and who can help us consolidate the fragmented laboratory supply base," said Steve Tolmie, Quartzy's Director of Business Development. "These three new suppliers are especially exciting because they're recognized leaders in their categories. They'll provide our busy users with products they can't get through traditional lab distribution channels."
- Rainin is the leading provider of advanced pipette solutions for life scientists worldwide, as well as a global maker of precision lab instruments. With over $2 billion in annual sales, this Mettler Toledo company offers a wide selection of pipettes (manual, electronic and multichannel), BioClean pipette tips and expert pipette services that, together, offer a complete pipetting solution. Because Rainin products are not available through traditional distributors, this partnership with Quartzy is an industry first that will benefit hundreds of thousands of scientists. "We are very excited to join Quartzy's growing list of premium lab equipment providers," said Sam Verdickt, Rainin Vice President of Global Sales. "As a company that is wholly focused on meeting the liquid handling needs of the scientific community, we have earned a global reputation for designing and manufacturing pipettes and tips that many scientists have discovered to be the best performing, most ergonomic available. In conjunction with our parent company, Mettler Toledo, we also operate the world's largest pipette service organization."
- Essendant (formerly known as United Stationers) is a leading national distributor of office essentials with more than $5 billion in annual sales. Their vast inventory of workplace supplies — including a wide range of office goods, technology, furniture, and products for cleaning and facilities maintenance — ships from 70 warehouses nationwide.
- Medline is a global manufacturer and distributor of healthcare supplies and does business in more than 90 countries. With over $8 billion in sales across the continuum of care, Medline will offer its portfolio of manufactured products for Quartzy members in the clinical, academic and university hospital markets. In the U.S., Medline's network of 40-plus distribution centers and private truck fleet means Quartzy can provide exceptionally speedy service to customers anywhere in the country.
"With decades of experience selling to customers across the continuum of care, we've grown into a recognized market leader in the higher education and clinical laboratory space. Our new partnership with Quartzy provides us with exciting opportunities to engage with thousands of clinical and academic professionals and offer them direct cost savings on our branded products," said Alex Wheeler, vice president of distributor relations, Medline.
