Reproducibility of experiments

I ask for a description of what a kit does when I review papers.
You cannot avoid some problems thouigh.  I've read papers where
hundreds of random DNA sequences have been screened yet only some
have been listed.  Also, names of materials cannot always we 
be explained.  Some material made by a company such as Pharmacia,
e.g. Sephacryl S200, is considered much like a defined chemical.  
Will commercial catalogs be deposited, acid-free paper and all, 
in the Library of Congress, the copyright libraries of Europe and
the rest of the world?  I doubt they will accept them.  So the rea
reader 50 years hence will have some problems.  Still isn't that
part of the fun?
