Life sciences marketplace software Labviva has today declared a strategic supply chain partnership with Gilson, a family-owned global manufacturer of sample management, purification and extraction solutions for the life sciences industry.

Through this partnership, organisations who use the Labviva platform to purchase laboratory supplies can easily access Gilson’s portfolio.

Founded in 2017, Labviva is headquartered in Boston, USA. Gilson was founded in 1957 and now 5000 of its products are available on the Labviva marketplace.


An elevated e-commerce experience 

The Labviva platform integrates with applications including:

  • SAP Ariba
  • Oracle Procurement Cloud
  • JAGGAER Procure-to-Pay
  • Coupa

This offers purchasing professionals and research scientists a route to purchase laboratory supplies as they would in the B2C e-commerce experience. 

Gilson will have access to purchasing trends and product performance on the Labviva platform.

Gilson’s most popular products include pipettes, pipette tips, pipette accessories, as well as lab systems and benchtop devices. 


Extending portfolio to pharma and academic customers 

Through Labviva, Gilson is able to sell to more commercial markets and increase exposure.

“Labviva helps Gilson access new markets through their private marketplace capabilities”, said Peter Fleskes, Head of Gilson Distribution Partnerships-Americas. “It also allowed us to significantly reduce catalog onboarding time, which increases our time-to-value.”

“Labviva helps connect scientists to suppliers across all categories of life sciences research,” said Siamak Baharloo, CEO and Co-Founder of Labviva. “Gilson is recognised as a leader in their space, and we are excited to have their portfolio available to our pharma and academic customers.”
