Purchasing Consortium Testimonials

“The purchasing consortium setup by OBN is an outstanding example; the savings are so helpful”
Dr Erik Miljan, CEO, BioDivide

“Ipsen Bioinnovation (formerly Syntaxin Ltd) has been a member of the OBN purchasing consortium since its infancy in 2008.  The OBN scheme enabled us to secure larger discounts than would have been possible on our own, which in turn helped us to maximise the use of investor money.  The value for money and support provided from Lee and his team has been invaluable.”
Lewis Burke-Smith, Purchasing and Site Support Manager, Ipsen Bioinnovation

“Just wanted to express our thanks to you and the OBN Purchasing Consortium for playing a major role in helping us achieve considerable savings on our laboratory consumables. We have been a member of the scheme for the last 5 years and we hope to see this relationship grow stronger in the
coming years.”

Sasha Santic, Accounting & Procurement Co-ordinator, CEM Analytical Services Ltd. (CEMAS)
