An elevated e-commerce experience
The Labviva platform integrates with applications including:

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.”
