RE: Sigma Pre-made Reagents and Kits
It was announced some time ago in chemical industry media  that Sigma was seeking to sell its "diagnostics" division.  I spoke to Sigma customer service this morning and was informed that all products will continue to be available from Sigma until the sale goes through and that there should be no disruptions in customer service afterwards.  Their goal is a seamless transition and I suspect that they are capable of achieving it.  They have not yet announced that they have found a buyer, so things should continue as they have for the present.

I have been wondering who was going to supply the enzyme staining kits now that
Sigma has gone bust.  I do not know of anyone else selling these.
