Through ANR's Buy-For-Lab service, you will be able to purchase from micro-vendors, such as AMAZON sellers, who are unwilling or unable to attain registered vendor status with your institution. Buy-for-Lab opens up the entire world's products to you, giving you unlimited choices and price options to choose from. The freedom to purchase from any vendor in the world is within your grasp!
In today's hyperconnected world of next-day deliveries, overseas vendors can deliver your purchases faster than local distributors. You are no longer bound to local vendors for urgent orders. In fact, ANR's Buy-For-Lab customers have been ordering from overseas vendors for their urgent purchases, delivered into their hands at a fraction of the time and cost of local providers. Start your experiments sooner and publish productively!
Purchasing from overseas micro-vendors are fraught with risks. If you don't speak the language, verifying what you purchased can be frustrating. There is always the risk that the vendor does not accept your available payment options. Items might arrive damaged, and the vendor becomes unresponsive. Your item could be confiscated or fined by the immigration authorities due to improper declarations. Put your mind at ease and let ANR handle everything for you. Just tell us what to purchase, and we will do the rest!
