Life Science Equipment Framework Launch


NEUPC members can now access the LUPC awarded national framework agreement for Life Science Equipment.  The agreement went live on 8th July 2019 and will run until 30 June 2022, with the possibility of an additional one-year extension.


The agreement covers a wide range of Life Science Equipment, including Cell Analysis Systems, Flow Cytometers, Cell Counters, Cell Preparation Manipulation Systems, Biomolecule Manipulation systems, other DNA/RNA Applications and Post Installation Services.


As well as process savings, standard service level agreements and reduced risk, the agreement also provides a compliant route to market. Members using the agreement will benefit from:


  • A lot structure to cover specialist requirements.
  • A set of standard added-value services across all suppliers, complemented by supplier-specific added-value services detailed further in the tender response, such as 12-year supplier liability after the last Call-Off Contract.
  • Transparent pricing which gives a full breakdown of costs of all elements of payroll with a single commission fee.
  • Fast route to market.
  • Competitive rates.
  • A wide choice of both SMEs and larger suppliers to better match your organisational requirements and culture.
  • OJEU-compliant route.
