Any scientist knows how expensive purchasing new equipment can be. However, one platform, flash4Science, in particular caught our attention. The company located in Germany has set itself an interesting challenge as it tries to combine life sciences and private shopping together. Two domains, which, on paper, seem completely incompatible! It is the world’s first biotech webshop offering time-limited live deals from both well-established and new brands for the life science community.
The aim of the company, therefore, is to enable scientist to waste as little time and money on shopping as possible, so they can focus longer on their research. Scientists can buy products from various suppliers within a single order and have to pay only one invoice. Keeping in mind long and complicated order approval processes in research institutions, this might be indeed a bottleneck breaker for scientific supplies.
You’re probably thinking: “Great… another company that sells science equipment” right? Wrong! Flash4science distinguishes itself from other platforms thanks to their cleverly organized “flash sales” offers.
