    Who we are

    We are independent importers and distributors of scientific equipment and consumables from the world’s leading brands.

    We understand the importance of accuracy and rigour in scientific work and ensure the products and service we supply meet the quality standards required to maintain the integrity of your work. With over 70 suppliers and an expansive product range, Lab Supply is a partner of choice to the research and applied science communities in New Zealand.

    Established in 2010 and headquartered in Dunedin, we are proudly New Zealand owned and operated.

    Our history

    Lab Supply was founded by father and son Frank and Adam Spurway in 2010 with the vision to provide high-quality products the science community could rely on implicitly. This was combined with superior customer service and support, enhancing their vision to include an on-going commitment to helping our customers achieve the outcomes they visualised.

    Testament to Adam & Frank’s 80 years of combined life sciences experience, deep product knowledge, and passion, their vision is now a reality! Over a decade on, Lab Supply is recognised as an establishment that stands for quality, integrity, and service.

    What we do

    We support science and discovery. We work behind the scenes enabling researchers and scientists across New Zealand take their work the extra mile, helping translate it into tangible benefits for society. From food producers to pharmaceutical companies, academic research to medical laboratories, we are the answer to all your laboratory supply needs.

    We also support what we sell with in-house servicing, calibration, and repair capabilities for a wide range of laboratory equipment, including liquid handling instruments.

    With our expertise in the setup of new labs, we can help install your equipment, ensure it works within the necessary parameters, and upskill staff on equipment usage.

    Whether it’s standardised testing or innovative experiments, we’ve answered the needs of a diverse client mix spanning commercial businesses, Crown Research Institutes (CRI’s) and universities across New Zealand.

    Our customer promise

    Because science and discovery never stop, we work to ensure you don’t have to either.

    We pride ourselves on being responsive and proactive, answering requests as quickly as possible and maintaining open, on-going communication with our customers.

    We aim to keep optimum stock levels of our most popular products so we can promptly turn around orders with 24-hour delivery for the South Island and 48-hours for the North Island.

    For those items that must be sourced internationally, we are sympathetic to timelines and promise transparent communication and regular progress updates, so you know when to expect delivery.

    We understand how important it is to uphold the integrity of your work, so we are careful to only source and supply reputable products that won’t risk compromising results, continuity, or lab standards. We provide equipment and consumables you can trust are reliable, accurate and consistent.

    Our people

    Our people are our competitive advantage.

    With backgrounds in science, our Sales, Customer Support, and Service teams know how to help find the right product and/or offer technical advice and recommendations on the use of equipment.

    Our support staff bring a variety of experience to the team and manage operations, logistics, accounts and marketing.

    A small, tight-knit team, we all share a passion for science and discovery.
