Supply Orders

Due to disruptions in the global supply chain, we have been experiencing atypical shortages and back-orders of many of our regularly used phlebotomy supplies. Because of these shortages, your order may not be filled to the level requested. As we manage our inventory, we will do our best to make sure you have the supplies you need. In the event a critical item is unavailable, please review this page for updates.
