Tecan is excited to announce an agreement with Thomas Scientific, a distributor of laboratory solutions and equipment, to support the sales of Tecan’s detection instruments and consumables portfolio in the US. This collaboration will allow Tecan to expand its presence for these product lines and reach a wider customer base across the academic and biotech communities.

Tecan is known worldwide for its industry-leading automated liquid handling systems and complete portfolio of detection instruments.

This Tecan-Thomas agreement will allow labs to purchase Tecan's range of consumables and detection instruments alongside their regular stocking orders from a single vendor. It gives lab managers more control over inventory management—due to the simplified ordering process—and procurement managers have more purchasing power as a result of volume discounts.

Lynda Banig, president of Tecan America, said: “We are delighted to partner with Thomas Scientific as the latest distributor of our products. Tecan has a solution for every lab, and we are confident that, with the network of technical experts at Thomas Scientific, we can further empower labs across the United States.”  

Mike Klipstein, chief commercial officer at Thomas Scientific, commented: “Our highly trained technical consultants offer unbiased advice to support great science, ensuring that every customer has the best laboratory solutions to meet their needs. Thanks to this agreement, we can now recommend Tecan's broad detection instrument and consumables portfolio to help labs optimize their workflows.”
