Introducing LPS Innovations
LPS Innovations brings you exclusive deals on new, unique and innovative lab products.
LPS Innovations provides manufacturer’s representative services for select manufacturers with products that require a high level of technical expertise for their products. Because of this, our clients are entitled to purchase their products at the maximum discount.
ViveBio: This is a transport medium that allows biologically active materials (e.g., viruses, bacteria, etc.) to be stored and subsequently reconstituted fully intact without refrigeration. This company originally developed this product for the clinical market – specifically for tropical diseases and AIDS viral load samples. They have asked LPS to take this to markets beyond their narrow focus. We were intrigued because the ATCC (American Type Culture Collection) has been buying them and for their potential to drastically lower the need for -86 freezers to store long term samples.
SnapIT: This highly innovative safety product manufactured in Australia was initially brought to the U.S. industrial market by LPS because one of our clients need a local source. LPS has for several years supplied these to VWR and Fisher on a wholesale basis.
LabStrong: located in Dubuque, IA. LabStrong was formed by the management of Barnstead after Thermo shuttered the plant a few years ago. LabStrong’s greatest strength is in water systems, orbital shakers and vacuum ovens. Fisher and VWR, over the years have placed hundreds of Barnstead water systems and stills in this area. This system is higher in initial price than the Millipore system but is entirely self-serviceable and with lower cost cartridges making it one of the lowest cost-of-ownership over the life of the system. LPS is proud to represent LabStrong in the Tennessee and North Carolina markets.
- American BioTech Supply: Refrigeration solutions to meet tomorrow's standards. ABS offers NATURAL REFRIGERANT REFRIGERATORS and FREEZERS ina variety of models. Hydrocarbon refrigerants are natural, non-toxic, non ozone depleting replacemenents for CFC refrigerants.
Q – How is LPS Innovations different the numerous other product lines where LPS sources products?
A – LPS motivation for becoming a distributor for consumable items is to eliminate one layer of profit in the supply chain and to pass on the savings to our clients. While consumable vendors embrace this philosophy (even more so if they don’t sell through the major distributors) equipment vendors don’t. They are looking for distributors who will promote and sell their products to a much wider audience even if that may be web marketing rather than catalog or direct sales. Lab Companion and LabStrong represent the first two equipment manufacturers we have formed partnerships with.
Q – So what’s in this for me, your customer?
A – Aside from the obvious benefit of saving you money should you decide on your own that you want an A&D, Lab Companion or Labstrong product, if you give us the opportunity to research your needs the next time you are in the market for a water system or refrigerator/freezer for your lab, we will be able to offer you advice that will help you make the best choice, whether you buy from LPS or someone else. It won’t cost you anything and it just might save you thousands!
