Hi Everyone. We’re starting this thread in anticipation of supply chain disruptions due to COVID-19. At the time of initial writing (March 18th) we currently do not have any suppliers who are reporting significant operational or supply chain disruptions which would affect customer orders. All are operational, with manufacturing and warehouse staff reporting to work. In all likelihood, however, that will change. We will post updates here as we receive them – below, in chronological order.
As for us, Laboratory Supply Network has always had a strong culture of working virtually, and we are fully operational from the comfort of our homes. While we do not expect any disruption which would affect our customers, if such as scenario becomes likely, we will post that here as well.
We wish everyone the best health and safety during this crisis, and encourage everyone to act with caution and not take any unnecessary risks to the health of themselves or those around them. Let’s get this stupid pandemic over with ASAP!
April 4, 2020 update
PolyScience’s facilities will be closed for two weeks for sterilization due to an employee testing positive for COVID-19. As a result, they estimate that there will be an additional 3-week lead time for all orders.
