You are right. I have been a Pharmacia customer since 1982, long time
before they took over LKB, and we bought a lot of stuff from them in
hundreds of thousand dollars. I have this feeling that they are realy
stingy recently.

Two weeks ago, I called their customer service to ask for a FPLC
instruction manual for two reasons:1)our original manual was lost; 2)we are
planning to buy a new one. The lady on the phone told me that I should
receive it within 10 to 15 days although I asked for express delivery.
Yesterday, a lady from Pharmacia called me again and told me that there
will be no manual for me but I can order one from them and it costs $17. I
immediately cancelled the $25,000 order and  certainly, Pharmacia saved $17
