Roche Diagnostics Punchout Disabled


Sent: 7/12/18

Roche Diagnostics is no longer a University-wide contracted supplier with the University of Pittsburgh. After two years of negotiations to amend or enter in a new contract, Roche Diagnostics has informed Purchasing Services that the company is no longer interested in participating in a University-wide agreement as it is shifting to the clinical market segment and away from the research market.

How This Will Affect Your Department

Fisher Scientific distributes many of the Roche products used at Pitt.

  • 60% of the Roche products are available as either an exact match or functional equivalent through the Fisher Scientific punchout.
  • Please contact one of our Fisher Scientific Reps for assistance matching products.
