Many items are available at a significant discount without associated shipping and handling charges. In our efforts to fully service the Washington University research community we attempt to stay adaptable to changes taking place on campus so we can continue to provide top quality products and services to researchers. Therefore, new products and vendors are added if there is enough interest on campus. No PO number is necessary at the time of purchase. Researchers are billed monthly via Workday or by hard copy.
