Avoiding Re: [Histonet] DAB in tablet form

From:Gayle Callis

I totally agree with Andrea.  Another superb two part DAB substrate kit is 
Pierce DAB (brown) $65 for 250 ml kit or Pierce CN/DAB (black) $78 for 250 
ml kit, and you can make up as much or little as you want for number of 
slides in a run.

Acadamic labs often get discounted pricing and free shipping other than 
hazardous material costs, this can be purchased through Fisher and probably 
VWR too.
