    Home About Us

    TWD, based in Pleasant Prairie, WI was founded in 1997 as a supplier of unique laboratory products, pre-barcoded labware utilizing specialized permanent sample ID technology, and custom on-demand sample ID services and equipment. We provide our services to Fortune 500 companies in the pharmaceutical, clinical, chemical, food products and related industries. TWD is committed to providing outstanding customer service and dedicated to fulfilling the demanding needs of laboratory professionals.

    A partial list of TWD's products and services include:


    TWD TradeWinds' permanent barcode or other identification markings are suitable for virtually any glass or plastic labware and can withstand the harshest laboratory conditions where traditional adhesive labels fail. For example, when applied to our high recovery vials, PSID's provide an easily automated solution for long-term compound storage with no weight change.


    TWD utilizes a centralized barcode database to check produced barcodes for duplications or illegal characters across multiple customer sites. We use a constantly evolving software suite to better protect your data. We also monitor how much labware inventory each customer has, and send notifications when stock is running low.


    TWD Scientific offers a wide selection of disposable laboratory products designed for convenience and reduction of cross contamination. A sampling of TWD's disposable products include weighing funnels in glass and plastic, disposable forceps with blunt/sharp tips available in sterile peel packs, vial racks with microtiter footprints designed for automated systems such as autosamplers, antistatic powder transfer scoops for rapid transfer of milligram quantities, Chill Trough™ reagent reservoirs designed to keep assay reagents cold up to 4-hours without the use of ice, along with a variety of other automation friendly products.


    Under LabMart, we have three channels of distribution that offer a broad portfolio of laboratory supplies and equipment. Through DOT Scientific, LPS, and JH Berge, we provide products and services for molecular biology, cell culture, chemistry, cold storage, and other general benchtop applications. All of our channels are committed to providing our customers unique products at a competitive price.


    TWD BioX's product line provides customers a convenient and easy way to get quality labware without the hassle. Our newly introduced line combines cutting-edge technology and high-quality supplies to make some of the best products in the industry. Through our dedication to excellence and unbeatable prices, the BioX line separates itself from the competition. TWD BioX has strived to become the most efficient and affordable supply chain in the industry.
