    Prices for Raw Chemicals at ScienceLab

    Does anybody know why the raw chemical prices at ScienceLab.com are so outrages? They want $127 for 500 g of ammonium thiosulfate. Is this a medical grade? My current supplier charges €14 for twice that amount but will not ship to Florida. I'm on the look for an alternative photographic chemical supplier. I checked with Photographers' Formulary, but they only carry ammonium thiosulfate as a 60% solution and I prefer the crystalline form.
    Regards

    I've just bought 1 Kg of ammonium thiosulfate for 4€ at Manuel Riesgo in Madrid, Spain. I don't know if they will ship to Europe or the USA...

    Good day Ralph, have you tried ArtCraft Chemicals? It has been while since I ordered anything from them, but Mike used to be rally good and prices were pretty good. Other source here in the US would be Bostick and Sullivan. Give one or both a call they should be able to help with a shipment to Florida.

    Good Luck,
    Mike C

    I checked. Neither of them seems to carry dry ammonium thiosulfate, but at least ArtCraft has the liquid solution for a reasonable price. Still looking for the dry chemical.

    I thought that sciencelab rang a bell. This is link to a google search of Apug for science lab.

    Yeah, I remember discussions of Sciencelab.com. There was a Google Earth image of their "facilities" which seemed to be a mobile home and several commercial sized garbage dumpsters.

    Doesn't look to be a mobile home on street view.

    Beware of Sciencelab.com. Do a search here and on Photo.net for the problems people have had. I lost a small amount of money placing an order with them. Their modus is to respond that shipping is delayed until you no longer have the option of contesting the charges on your card. I live in Houston, and drove by the place one time. It is a sketchy place surrounded by a hurricane fence. It does not have the appearance of being any sort of legitimate business in my opinion. And the fact that they ripped me off for $20 reinforces that opinion in my mind. I would urge a whole lot of caution.

    Check this thread: http://www.apug.org/forums/archive/i...74350-p-2.html

    You might check with The Chemistry Store. They are in Florida, and I have had no problems with getting bulk chemicals from them. ( www.chemistrystore.com )
