SLS - Mitigating the impact of unprecedented global supply chain issues

To identify areas of supply chain disruption after the recent pandemic to mitigate the impact of  unprecedented global supply chain bottlenecks and  pinpoint the lessons learned to enable the resilient supply of key items such as PPE in future global supply chain and manufacturing disruptions.

As the Covid pandemic wreaked havoc across the world, many businesses were exposed to supply chain disruption.

In this case study we hope to be able to inform the reader of the obstacles that businesses can undergo within the global supply chain, focusing specifically on how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the fluidity of the supply chain.

This case study aims  to identify the bottlenecks, focusing on specifically on how a pharmaceutical companies supply chain was affected; and how the company was able to resume the resilient supply of key items such as Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

InnovaPrep® FluidPrep Case Study for ISS

Introduction

The Aim of the Study is to assess microbial communities on ISS surfaces and determine impact upon human health after continued exposure.

It has been shown that exposure to some microbes in internal spaces can have an adverse effect on human health which include increasing allergen susceptibility and increasing the prevalence of infectious disease.

This is a problem for astronauts as they experience extreme conditions associated with space flight which result in altered immunity levels and are also served by a lack of medical treatments compared to Earth.

Eppendorf F740HI Racking Study

Introduction

Ultra-Low Temperature (ULT) freezers are well known to be high consumers of energy. Holding set temperatures 90°C to 100°C colder than their environment will always require a significant amount of energy.

One way to reduce ULT freezer energy consumption is to warm up the set temperature. By doing so energy consumption will be reduced from 18-34% depending on the model, age & condition of the freezer.

When considering warming up their ULT freezers, some end users raise concerns that by taking such an action they may expose their samples/contents to unfavorable temperatures during their day to day operation.

York St John University Case Study

Read our latest case study focusing on our work with the York St John University Biomedical Teaching Lab.

Dr Sue Jones, Director of Biomedical Science had this to say about SLS:

"Working with one major supplier made it much easier for us to co-ordinate orders and to ensure that we purchased some items in bulk, thus maximising any discounts and streamlining our ordering processes. I have always found working with SLS to be a pleasant and efficient process. Bill Toon the Senior Territory Sales Manager at Scientific Laboratory Supplies Ltd is helpful, knowledgeable and has years of experience, making him the ideal person to advise on equipment and product needs.”
