Pharmaserve NW, a contract manufacturing site, is one company that has benefitted from using the website, as QC analyst Ainsley Eustace explained: ?We purchase reference standards and impurities, particularly steroids as we produce a lot of inhalers, to use for QC testing of our products. Before the launch of the LGC Standards? webshop, we would have to phone the Company to enquire about the price of the product, raise a purchase order, and then call back to actually complete the ordering process. Now, we can locate the item we need quite simply by searching the webshop for either the item number or a product description, check the price and place an order, all without making any phone calls. Everything is so much quicker and easier using the webshop.?
