How a Distribution Partner Helps Streamline Lab Supply Ordering

For lab professionals, it’s important to partner with a distributor to diminish the complexity and process of lab product ordering. A competent supply chain partner, like Concordance, can provide flexible and personalized service, as well as unparalleled support for logistics, contracts and processes.

Quality lab results give patients the confidence to lead happier and healthier lives. In order for lab professionals to provide patients with the results they need, they should be able to focus on running samples and tests instead of ordering products and supplies. Without the support of a distributor, lab professionals can get stuck wasting valuable time filling orders when they could be doing so much more.

Teamwork

Lab technicians vary in roles of responsibility from doing the grunt work of handling samples and performing tests, to those tasked with ensuring supplies and products are stocked and ready to use. Some tests take hours, while others take days or even weeks, and labs can have a variety of tests running simultaneously. Here, teamwork is essential to ensure that the right tests are completed at the right time and this is predicated by having the right equipment to perform those tests.

With so much to do in so little time, working as a lab professional requires an “all hands on deck” mentality. Much like your team, the Concordance team works hand in hand with suppliers to provide the products and solutions you need in order to successfully manage your time, ensuring your focus is on patients, not products. A distributor willing to collaborate is an asset. It means they recognize that your time is valuable and you don’t have time for tasks that distract from patient needs, like product and supply ordering.  

Laboratory Product Offerings

Whether you’re working in a physician’s primary care lab focusing on small point of care tests, a rapid response lab with fast turnaround testing or a large hospital with an expansive list of available tests, you need quality products, at cost effective prices, delivered at the right time.

It’s important that your distributor has access to all the products you need for your lab from specimen collection to diagnostic test kits and general lab equipment including:

  • Timers
  • Incubators
  • Centrifuges
  • Fume hoods
  • Microscopes
  • Microscope slides
  • And more!

Logistics

Sometimes the biggest challenge for lab professionals is making sure samples and reagents arrive or are maintained at the right temperatures requiring quality freezing or refrigeration equipment. 

Streamline the process with the right products and solutions. Look for a distributor with a highly trained team with exceptional technical and product knowledge. Partner with someone who will work with your facility to provide the solutions and technologies that fit your unique needs, reduce spending and help you deliver the highest quality of care to achieve better patient outcomes.
