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
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 :-)
