This would be good to know as well.  all we ever get is the classic 
Polaroid Type 52 as well.  Though, what we do is price around to any and 
all of the photo stores here in STL and by it locally, bypassing 
VWR/Fischer and the like.  It is still up there at about $306 for 10 boxes. 
 When the Fischer rep found out what we were paying, he made a valliant 
attempt to match the price but came up short.  i.e, you might be slightly 
cheaper to querry outside of the "big boys".

Side note:  I know of at least on other lab that records their agarose gel 
via Illford HP5+ in a standard 35 mm format.  I like the idea and might 
consider it in another setting but it isn't a feasible option for a large 

Hope this helps,
