Nanowerk launches world's first nanomaterial supersite
(Nanowerk News) Nanowerk, a leading nanotechnology information portal and home of the unique Nanomaterial Database, launched a new service that offers custom sourcing for nanomaterials as well as discounts on carbon nanotubes, fullerenes and other nanoparticles from suppliers worldwide.
Extending the benefits of its hugely popular Nanowerk Nanomaterial Database™ even further, Nanowerk announced today the launch of its enhanced nanomaterial database service. The benefits of this new service are twofold:
1) Visitors to Nanowerk can get discounts of up to 10% over manufacturers’ prices.
2) Through its relationship with suppliers, Nanowerk can help buyers, who prefer a more personal service or require assistance, find the right product or put them in touch with the most suitable suppliers for custom-made products.
“Not only can you find a huge range of nanomaterials in our database, we also negotiated deals with quality suppliers in the U.S., Europe and Asia, that let you buy nanomaterials through Nanowerk at discounted prices, thereby giving you the lowest possible prices available anywhere” says Michael Berger, co-founder of Nanowerk. “We are constantly expanding this list of affiliates to be able to offer discounts on many more items in our database.”
“With our network of suppliers we are perfectly positioned to assist buyers identifying suitable suppliers and sourcing the nanomaterials they need for their research, product development or manufacturing,” says Bill Unruh, Sales Director of Nanowerk.
Since its launch, nanowerk.com has developed into a leading nanotechnology information portal. Apart from its unique Nanomaterial Database™, with currently 1,300+ products from over 90 suppliers, it provides the most complete nanotech events calendar, with almost 500 nanotech-related events for 2006; hundreds of links to universities, labs, researchers, associations, networks and international initiatives involved in nanotechnology; a daily news digest; downloadable reports; and much more. The site includes a daily “Spotlight” section featuring Nanowerk-exclusive reviews and summaries of cutting-edge nanotechnology research by guest authors and Nanowerk editors. Nanowerk also publishes “nanoRISK”, a bi-monthly print newsletter designed as a constructive contribution to the responsible development and use of engineered nanomaterials (www.nanorisk.org).
