Sale of TPP products will be discontinued as of January 1, 2014
At the turn of the year 2013/2014, we unfortunately have to discontinue the sale of TPP products at short notice. Although this step has not come easy to us, we have decided to do so as in the current market environment we no longer see an adequate basis to continue this product range.
Therefore, as of January 2, 2014, we can no longer accept orders for TPP products nor carry out deliveries of TPP products. We will deliver products for any orders we currently receive from you up to December 20, 2013 as far as available. For this purpose, we are in close contact with the representatives of TPP. We apologize if it should not be possible to deliver all TPP items on account of the very high demand at present. Our customer service
will inform you about the availability of the TPP products.
Please note that the product disposable counting chamber C-Chip (Cat. No. PDHC-N01) is not a product of TPP and therefore remains in our product range.
Also in the future, our field force colleagues and our customer service will support you in the customary quality concerning all matters relating to cell culture. With the focus on our core portfolio and with the addition of new products in our range resulting from co-development in the Merck-Millipore environment, we hope to fulfill your expectations for innovative and high-quality products even better in the future.
Our availability during the holidays
We are available to you in December up to and including Friday, December 20, 2013. In the new year, we will be available as from Thursday, January 2, 2014. We will accept orders that we can deliver to you before the end of 2013 (provided that the items are on stock as needed) up to and including Wednesday, December 18, 2013, 12:00h CET. Our last day of shipping will be Thursday, December 19, 2013. Our first day of shipping in the new year will be Friday, January 3, 2014.

A broader portfolio – and ongoing top service

Together, we offer you access to a comprehensive portfolio of media and sterile buffers. In future, you will also benefit from Merck Millipore's expertise in the development and optimization of cell culture media, analytical capabilities, and the company's global sales structure.
