Purchasing

All One Nucleus Gold Members have access to the Purchasing Scheme which gives them discounts on goods and services purchased from our preferred suppliers, listed below. Those Gold Members using Fisher Scientific also receive a growth rebate on their annual spending at the end of the year. The overall savings made easily cover the cost of a Gold Membership. See a breakdown in savings per company size here

The One Nucleus Purchasing Scheme has been running since 2000 with an annual member spend exceeding £7 million before discount and with more than 100 members. It is the longest-running purchasing consortium of its kind in the UK, saving members over £3 million per annum.

We currently have seven Preferred Supplier Agreements (PSAs) in place who undergo a rigorous tender process and are selected, not by One Nucleus, but by the members of the Purchasing Scheme. These deals are only available to our Gold Members.

Current PSAs

  • Air Liquide – providing laboratory gases
     
  • Air Products – providing liquid nitrogen services
     
  • BOC – providing dry ice services
     
  • Deliver Plus – providing courier services
     
  • Fisher Scientifi­c – providing laboratory consumables, laboratory chemicals, low value apparatus and Life Science Products
     
  • Harts Office Supplies – providing stationery, office goods, IT consumables and office furniture
     
  • STARLAB – providing pipette maintenance and calibration services


We can perform a cost-benefi­t analysis for our members thinking of upgrading to Gold membership (and therefore access to PSAs) or companies thinking of becoming a Gold Member.
