Select Savings Program

Great Deals That Save You Time And Money

BioForward Select Savings is a group purchasing consortium with pre-negotiated rates to save BioForward members money. Each partnering vendor is carefully selected to ensure you receive the best discount and incentives available on high quality products and services.

Program Overview

BioForward has negotiated with a diverse network of respected vendors to offer our members the best pricing available on a wide range of goods and services. There is no obligation to use all of our vendors. Work with one, or as many vendors within our program as you like. BioForward is a non-profit organization, and any incentives provided by vendors in this consortium go back into supporting activities that support Wisconsin’s biohealth industry.


To get started in the program, you can contact a member of our staff and we will follow up with you to get your account set up and start saving you money.


BioForward is critical component of the BioHealth ecosystem in Wisconsin. We appreciate their efforts with the purchasing consortium as it translates into significant cost savings for Aldevron’s operation. We are also grateful for their work promoting Biomanufacturing in the State.

-Tom Foti, VP, General Manager of Aldevron

Promega has appreciated being part of the select savings program which can help our industry run efficiently and cost-effectively.  To us, the program is about more than saving money.  It’s also about supporting more opportunities for other regional businesses.

-Craig Bald, Director of Global Procurement at Promega
