The best way to think of an equivalent match is to think of the difference between ordering name brand pharmaceuticals and generics.

You'll know you have an equivalent match because it will say so within the offer.


Quartzy’s team of scientists spend time finding outstanding suitable alternatives that they would feel comfortable using in their own labs. Quartzy’s scientists can find alternatives for anything from gloves to antibodies!
