Someone wrote a post about cheap carbenicillin? I seem to have lost it so I 
will try and remember what they wrote.
How important is it to use that particular beta-lactam? Can you not use 
methicillin for example as it is a whole lot cheaper. We use methicillin in 
place of carbenicillin for some protocols involving E.coli and it works 
fine. Might not work in your case I guess, but you might think about it.
