PerkinElmer and VWR International Join Forces to Create Combined Service Solution
News Jan 07, 2010
PerkinElmer, Inc. has announced that OneSource®, a component of the Analytical Sciences and Laboratory Services business, has entered into an agreement with global laboratory supply and distribution company VWR International, LLC, to develop a joint service offering.
“The combined service solution that VWR and PerkinElmer now offer represents a tremendous advantage for our customers. They can now receive high quality service from service engineers experienced in their respective areas through one contract and can benefit from the associated efficiency and cost savings.”
The combined solution provides multi-vendor maintenance and qualification service across a broad spectrum of laboratory equipment from pipettes and pH meters, serviced by VWR, to complex multi-component analytical instrumentation, such as Liquid Chromatography/tandem Mass Spectrometry (LC/MS/MS), serviced by OneSource. This approach enables customers to access the expertise of both companies.
The agreement follows an earlier announcement by PerkinElmer and VWR in August last year, where PerkinElmer spectroscopy and chromatography consumables and minor accessories would be made available through VWR.
