Hello Everyone,

This is a summary of emails I recieved from my earlier post to the
newsgroup about X-Gluc prices.  I am assuming all of these companies sell
X-Gluc at a discounted price.

--AaeChem Inc. of Bloomington IN have decent prices (MUCH CHEAPER
THAN SIGMA).  Their phone # is (812)334-9996
--Gold  Biotechnology Inc, in St Louis,  An empty bottle has this
phone number on it:1-800-248-7609.
--Calbiochem. I think we paid around $30-$40 for 100mg.
--Denville Scientific Inc.  (1-800-453-0385) carries X-Gluc.  The price
is about 65 dollar for 100mg.
--Biosynth AG in Switzerland.    http://www.biosynth.com/
--Melford Laboratories Ltd. Chelsworth, Ipswich, Suffolk, IP7 7LE. Tel:
01449 741178. 1g costs £245
--Rose Scientific of Edmonton, Alberta. 1 gram amounts for about 25% of
other vendors. Phone: 1-800-661-9288.  FAX:  403-462-5776
--San Diego company called DocFrugal for $69.90/100mg.
--Research Products International www.rpicorp.com
