Tips on using Science Exchange for R&D services.

Find a specific Request or Order

If you have a lot of projects, use the Search and Filter functionalities on your Requests & Orders tab to find specific Requests or Orders. 

Use the drop-down menus to filter requests based on order status, provider, or request owner.

Use the “Filter Requests” search functionality to query all of your open, completed, and closed requests. You have the ability to search for your requests by quote number, title, internal reference, request details/keywords, provider name, and/or collaborator name. 

Your Requests & Orders page also organizes recent Requests and Orders within status columns and color-coded labels.

Easily manage multiple quotes — view provider names, quote prices and turnaround times at a glance.

After clicking into your request, you will be directed to your request page, which may contain multiple requests for quotes (How can I request a quote from multiple providers?)

Note that this request page is where you can compare multiple quotes and any messages posted to this page are private between you, your collaborators, and Science Exchange. 

Compare quotes

In order to communicate directly with the provider, click on the Provider name on the left panel and write a message.
