If a picture is worth a thousand words, how many words is a statistic worth? According to Report Linker, the Global Lab Consumables Industry is going to be worth $8 billion within the next six years. So what does that tell us? Other than the fact that the laboratory consumables industry is lucrative, it also intimates that laboratory consumables are valued.
Potentially exacerbated by COVID, the demand for laboratory testing equipment and consumable goods has skyrocketed. Now more than ever, there is a demand for sealing equipment, surgical films, and plates to be used in healthcare manufacturing and laboratories all over the world.
Our industry thrives off innovation and discovery – none of us got into this business because we were happy with staying put. But, medical and scientific discovery can’t move as quickly as our minds; it can only move as quickly as our tests and conclusions. If there aren’t enough safe, sanitary, and high-quality products for innovators to consume, the industry is going to stagnate.
In the face of these global demands and the intense value that research facilities and life sciences companies place in consumables, it is not enough to simply have a supplier of quality goods. What you need is a well-established partner with the manufacturing capability to supply high-quality goods in high volume. Laboratories and distributors shouldn’t have to go through the constant push-pull of discovering a new supplier only to have them drop the proverbial ball in being unable to manage the expectations of a demanding industry – they need market-ready solutions and high-volume manufacturing capacity.
This is where iST Scientific comes into the picture: iST Scientific was created out of a sense of passion for these innovations that drive us. Not simply in the market for high-quality products, we foresaw the value of laboratory consumables and knew that the demand for them would continue to grow. As a result: we have a fully operational high-output medical manufacturing system. We have come to epitomise the all-in-one laboratory consumable manufacturer: a company that has not only the creativity to be able to design and build bespoke film-and-plate solutions, but also a company with the robust manufacturing stamina to be able to create mass quantities.
With over thirty years of experience as a supplier to the medical and healthcare industries, iST Scientific remains one of the only plate and sealing film specialists that can best our competition in both quality and quantity – with most competitors focusing on one rather than the other. In our industry, there’s no time or room for shopping around and figuring out how best to supply your clients with piecemeal products from different companies. iST Scientific takes the headache out of big orders and – as any distributor can tell you – our products are a class above.
The next time you find yourself on the wrong end of the demand for laboratory consumables, look no further than iST Scientific – don’t hesitate to contact us for a bespoke quote for your needs.
