Schedule 10 minutes with our team to learn how you can join OpenMarkets.

A pattern is developing: hospital buyers on the OpenMarkets Exchange are putting in an increasing amount of requests for lab equipment.

With over 50 suppliers clamoring for market share, lab equipment is one of the most fragmented categories of purchasing. This competitive dynamic is most acute in Q3, as prices for analyzers, centrifuges, and general lab equipment are 2-4% less during July, August & September than at other times of the year. Right now is the right time to buy this equipment!

And OpenMarkets is the right place for providers and suppliers to connect, with the ability to research over 750 Lab Equipment products on The Exchange. Providers can get information such as technical specs, pictures, and concise descriptions of the products, all online. Providers can also access the secondary market for lab equipment on The Exchange, which can save 50% or more on any transaction. 

Supply Chain teams can use The Exchange as a way to stay organized and work collaboratively with their Lab teams. Hendrick Health System in Abilene, TX teamed up with VWR to buy an ultra-low temp chest freezer. The supply chain team was empowered by the hospital’s Lab Director to find the best value, and consequently received multiple competitive quotes after submitting the request on OpenMarkets.
