In addition to being faster, our enhanced search function offers more control. The Product Search feature includes the following matching options:

Wild Cards

The search function defaults to an exact match. Using wild cards, you can control when to use partial matching to optimize your search. A wild card includes any letter or number. Use "?" for a single character wild card and "*" for multiple character wild card. Hyphens do not affect search results. For example:

Search Term Results
CELL-DYN 1800 all CELL-DYN 1800 products
CELL-DYN 3? all products for CELL-DYN 3200, CELL-DYN 3500, CELL-DYN 3700, etc., but not CELL-DYN 1800
CELL-DYN* all products for CELL-DYN 1700, CELL-DYN 1800, CELL-DY 3200, etc.

Note: Beginning search terms with a wild card (e.g. "*cd") can cause slow search times and is not supported.

Boolean Operators

Allows you to use AND, OR, and NOT to further specify your search. Boolean searches can be further refined by grouping terms using (). For example:

Search Term Results
CBC-3K all CBC-3K products
CBC-3K AND CBC-4K only products for CBC-3K AND CBC-4K
CBC-3K OR CBC-4K both CBC-3k and CBC-4K products

Search results can be narrowed further by using the filters on the left of the results page.
