Main Vendors

UW has a deal with these two vendors: discounts on shipping and no single-source justification required, even for orders over $1000. We got a very good deal on the shaker-incubator this way.

VWR -- UW does not need a single source justification for VWR and gets free shipping.
Fisher Scientific -- UW does not need a single source justification for Fischer and gets free shipping.
