I have found the CHTN eastern division invaluable to my research.
You will need to fill out a research protocol but it isn't too
cumbersome.Ther prices are great and the staff is helpful and
courteous. There number is 215 662 4570.
I have recently gotten the name of another company called
Novagen. Ther number is
800 526 7319.

Good luck!
