As a leading research organization, Cornell University spends more than $25 million annually on laboratory equipment and supplies. For ease of ordering, product selection, and cost savings, Procurement and Payment Services has agreements with several suppliers to meet your equipment and supply needs.
VWR International is the only preferred supplier for laboratory and scientific equipment and supplies. VWR offers heavily discounted product lines, desktop delivery to participating locations, tracking of product orders and delivery status, easy comparison in its e-SHOP punch-out site, and meet-or-beat price matching.
Several other contract suppliers, which have participated in a competitive bid process, are available to round out product offerings and provide continuity for research projects. In addition, pricing agreements have been negotiated with frequently utilized suppliers and are available for ordering convenience.
Preferred and contract suppliers are exempt from university bid requirements. Refer to the individual supplier pages for the benefits each supplier offers and direct all questions regarding these suppliers and services to Suzanne Willcox.
