Many of us buy from Sigma regularly for a variety of reasons, though
they are by no means the only supplier which fits has the attributes
described below.

They have a relatively big product list so that you can get a bunch
of reagents from one source.  This becomes an issue when one or more
require special shipping.

They have relativly fast service and a good shipping department

The Sigma "answer man" can be called with questions on any of their
products and has either got the information handy and/or can get it
fast on many product applications

Our department has a customer number and can order directly buy
computer gioving instant info on current price and availability

Hope this helps 

and no, I do not have stock in Sigma :-)
