BioPath Stores

The sourcing of consumables, reagents and laboratory equipment is generally a time-consuming process. Added essential tasks of ensuring value for money and reliable delivery can often be difficult to achieve and represent a major distraction for scientists that takes their focus away from the bench. BioPath Stores serves to assist members of the University of Cambridge with these duties.

The BioPath Stores Facility offers direct access and competitive pricing for an extensive inventory of over 3,500 products, including both tried-and-tested core stock items and the latest in trending bioreagents and associated consumables. With no minimum order charge and daily delivery throughout Cambridge, direct to each department and Addenbrooke's Hospital, BioPath Stores should be the first port of call for all Cambridge-based researchers for everything from simple plasticware through to PCR kits.
