If you’re a researcher, you’ll be well aware that the quick way to be driven up the wall during a research project is by that infamous problem, “supplier issues”. There is nothing quite like the merry dance of the bureaucracy in trying to source specific products. There’s definitely nothing like talking to some clerk reading from a stocklist who may or may not have a clue, while you ruminate on the fact that you’re having your research project derailed, rather expensively.
Then there’s the almost mystic process of trying to find a supplier which actually can deliver everything you need. It’s “stimulating” to talk to someone about sourcing rabbit anti-llama antibodies, rabbit anti-llama FITC, or sheep antibodies, to be told that you can source one of those products from that supplier, but must apparently go on a knightly quest to obtain the others.
The fact is that research organizations need to work with people at their own level of expertise and hyper-efficiency. They need people who understand their needs, business priorities, and know what “productivity” means to researchers. They specifically don't need to spend endless time chasing the materials they need or the dubious pleasures of dealing with suppliers of variable competence.
In this field, you need a full service supplier, one with a good track record in the industry and a clear capacity to deliver anything and everything, including lab support, if necessary. For example - There’s a US company called Capralogics, a true full spectrum supplier of all types of polyclonal antibody products, and lab services. They can also deliver that critical range of products, “custom” antibodies.
They’re a true single source supplier. They’re also experts in their own right, accredited and fully licensed researchers across the gamut of research products. They can work with their clients on research projects from scratch through to ongoing supply and design services. They have a huge range of standard sheep antibodies products, and you even order online.
