|Compound procurement by Specs
In order to acquire compounds needed for your research activities, sourcing from twenty or more different vendors is likely. The administration and handling involved to complete such an operation can become overwhelming. In fact, many researchers or purchasing agents will sacrifice interesting compounds in order to minimize this large number of vendors. Specs can act as a third party purchaser and order compounds from the indicated vendors on your behalf and under your pricing conditions. With only one contact, the ordering process is clear and much easier to manage. For this service, you pay only the actual compound cost from the original vendor plus a small management fee for our sourcing service.
Specs will take care of the complete process, from ordering the compounds to shipping them in any given format and in one single shipment to your research facilities around the world with one consolidated database. The entire procedure can encompass:
● order tracking and administration
We will contact all desired vendors, order the compounds you need, monitor all incoming shipments and take care of the administrative hassle involved. If compounds appear to be unavailable from one vendor, we can source them from other suppliers if you so desire or otherwise take care of crediting for undelivered compounds. We will crosscheck the structural integrity of all incoming compounds according to your guidelines, the correct weight and we can perform a quality check on the incoming samples by means of LC/MS and/or 1H-NMR. All samples will be reformatted into your standardized vials, plated into 96- or 384-well plates or tubes and properly barcoded. All details concerning tare weights and contents are properly registered into one single database. In the end, one organized delivery is made, one shipment to all your research facilities, one database and one invoice. Ordering compounds has never been so easy.
