A pattern is developing: hospital buyers on the OpenMarkets ExchangeTM are putting in an increasing amount of requests for lab equipment.
Our data team reports double digit percent increases in requests from categories including:
- Lab workstations
- Flow cytometers
- Lab refrigerators and freezers
For Providers like Aspirus Health in Appleton, WI, OpenMarkets has proven to be a valuable way to collaborate with Roche Diagnostics Company and VWR.
Benefit Health System, a large community hospital in Great Falls, MT, has recently found efficiency using the ExchangeTM to craft a transactions for a Siemens Centaur and a Siemens Advia. You can see highlights of recent transactions here.
Lastly, consider this intelligence from the OpenMarkets Q3 Purchasing Trends report:
“Lab equipment is one of the most fragmented categories of purchasing with over 50 suppliers clamoring for market share. Prices for analyzers, centrifuges, and general lab equipment are 2-4% less in this quarter, providing a great opportunity to find added value.”
Turns out our data also shows Q1 as a good time to buy lab equipment. So if your organization is buying or selling lab equipment, sign up here to get a demo of The ExchangeTM today.
