NEW YORK (360Dx) – Medical and laboratory product manufacturer and distributor Medline said on Monday that it has nabbed a two-year group purchasing deal for lab distribution services with Intalere.
The deal was effective as of Jan. 1. Other details were not disclosed.
Intalere members had access to competitive pricing through Medline as their primary medical distributor through a four-year agreement renewed last February, Medline said. The new deal complements that arrangement by extending the negotiated pricing to Intalere members who also select Medline as their primary lab distributor.
"This new contract comes at the request of members looking for a new laboratory distribution option," Medline Vice President National Accounts Dan Johns said in a statement. "Members can now receive laboratory supplies on the same Medline trucks already delivering their medical supplies.
