Amersham takes over USB - Canadian price for Sequenase soars

Mon Jul 26 14:49:43 EST 1993

We have used Sequenase sequencing kits for several years, ordering
directly from
USB in the USA. As a result of the takeover of USB by Amersham we
are now forced to order	
from Amersham in Canada. No problem there, cross border ordering was
always a hassle.
But of course Amersham has doubled the Sequenase prices, not upped
them 30% to 	
cover exchange rate differences. We have no choice but to stop using
Sequenase.	Has anyone
else encountered a similar problem? Any sign that Amersham is
willing to listen to	
pleas for better price structuring for old USB customers?
