VWR is now a Level 2 Punchout Supplier

On February 11, VWR International transitioned to a Level 2 punchout supplier. When performing a search at the top of the page, you will now need to punch out by clicking "order from supplier" to view pricing and add VWR items to your cart.

And here's some great news: VWR quotes can now be used on U Market! Simply punch out to VWR's U Market site and click "my quotes" on the left side of the page. Here you will be able to pull in your quote number and order your items. You will also be able to track your order status. Slick!
