ThermoFisher Scientific Supply Contract

UVM has entered into a five-year Primary Vendor Contract with Fisher Scientific for laboratory/scientific supplies and equipment.

There are many great benefits that will provide cost savings to departments across campus:

  • Significant savings on UVM’s Hotlist items
  • Deep discounts by category and manufacturer
  • Additional 1% discount off contract pricing
  • Free shipping
  • Next day delivery on orders placed by 2:00 p.m. stocked in Mass warehouse
  • Dedicated sales representatives on campus for assistance
  • Additional product promotions and new lab start-ups

Read about more benefits, program options, and Fisher Rep contact information.

As a Primary Vendor Contract, Fisher will be your direct resource for all your scientific needs. If you are currently purchasing supplies from a previously contracted vendor (VWR or Krackeler), Karen or Don from Fisher will be happy to meet with you to provide comparable products. 

There will be some exceptions to purchasing products outside of Fisher to facilitate our ongoing research grant community that are required to maintain consistent product usage or if Fisher is unable to provide the product needed. 

We are very excited about this new contract and look forward to our enhanced partnership with Fisher Scientific.
