Pingback: Where to get some good deals on lab stuff « JUNIORPROF
It turns out that the best deals for PCR plastics comes from a company called Bioplastics. The quality is unlike anyone else, as we see very low loss of sample after cycling, which means we can use much lower reagents, which saves even more money. You can find them at http://www.bioplastics.com. Turns out that company up in Canada you mentioned before sells them as well…go figure.
Jenny F. Scientist had a terrific series of posts on Science on the Cheap recently….
Dr. J, Thanks for that link. Brilliant stuff from Jenny F Scientist!!
I see that the http://www.D-Markbio.com site is giving away the Piko cycler. It actually looks like a great cycler. I called them up, and they said you had to purchase $10,000 worth of consumable products (which were priced really low…ie. tons of Taq, dNTP’s, Tips, tubes, clean-up kits….overall a good deal on the consumables alone) in order to get the cycler for free. Does anyone have any first-hand experience with the Piko cycler?
Yes I agree with you!
Excellent job once again. I am looking forward for your next post;)
Thanks for the excellent post! Incredibly informative.
