I have had two cases with Sigma where the bottle did not contain the
material it said on the label (water-insoluble SDS and luminol that
wouldn' glow). General chemicals I obtain mostly from Fluka (although
now part of the Sigma-Aldrich group it seems to have maintained high
standards), for antibodies I use Dako and Accurate. Roth is especially
good for bulk chemicals like solvents.
