Under the vid in the description there is a link to the company. I believe it was an English web site or I used "translate". I forget which.

I did not need the sample so I went no further. It was just to post here for others that might be able to use this.

Good luck, and let us know how you make out. :D


Hmm, I found the website, but can't find anything about the case they showed...

Want me to order it for you? LOL

Try Emailing them or actually calling them.

Explain that you saw the Utube video, and are interested in ordering the sample case.
Offer a credit card to pay the shipping if you are not in the same country that it will ship from. That alone goes a long way toward building a relationship with potential vendors.

UPS Day!!!

Just received my Corning samples.WOW!!!

I had requested 1@ of Petri dishes (33 to a sleeve)
and one 250ml Wash bottle.

They sent me two types of Perti's @ 2 sleeves each. 132 total Perti's
One 250ml, and one 500ml Wash bottle
One pair of Lexan saftey glasses,
4 Tyvek lab coats

"Part Number
Quantity Requested
Unit of Measure
Product Name
Note
BP93B-15 2 Pack/Sleeve 100 x 15 mm Aseptic Petri Dish Double Bagged, with Traceability Labels
BP93D-01 2 Pack/Sleeve 100 x 15 mm ISO-Marked Aseptic Petri Dish, Double Bagged with Traceability Labels"

That's from the conformation Email...
Along w/ that bunch of free goods is the regional sales reps' Info, and a cool Elemental chart 4" x 6" magnet. Like a fridge magnet.

I have my eye on some PVC Lab Aprons they carry @ 32.00 US each, and a silicone "hot materials" glove @ 28.00 US per pair.
I'll be ordering those as a "pay back" as soon as the Mrs. signs off on the purchase order. (I'm still waiting on my allowance for another purchase)

Just sayin... It pays to look around, and see what these guys are giving away. :cool:

I'm looking at the 50ml version of those. They would be much better than "slant tubes" for mycelium cold storage.

They are really neat little tubes. I think I asked for some larger ones too (actually requested about 8 different items but only got these and pipettes today, maybe they split shipments) but the small ones are great for small syntheses where all my other vials are too large for the end product.

Internet high five for sure lol

No email at all actually, or phone call for that matter... FedEx just showed up with a box from Corning and I wasnt expecting anything at all.

With Fisher Scientific, they send an email linking Google Earth, and an image of the shipping address you supplied them with.
The Email states " Please verify the linked address as your correct shipping address."

It was the damnedest thing I have seen

You visited the link, and got a sales email?

Work computer. Sometimes cookies are useful. And I do have an account with alibaba. So it is nothing sinister. I don't generally have a problem with unsolicited stuff.
I tend to trust the (considerable) security and firewall maintained by the IT guys at my work as well as their regular services and upgrades. It is their machine.

Got ya!

It's still scary if a China run sales company has access to your IP on a work machine...

Ask if they need a consultant? I'd be happy to set up a corporation. I mean set up their computers.
I mean make sure the company is taken care of. I mean, hell... Set them up! :D

The whole point in life it NOT lying.

You have perhaps 70 more years to acquire things in your life. Don't sweat the free crap. If it had any real value in life they wouldn't just give it away. ;)

I know, and in reality, I wouldn't want to lie to get it either. It's more fun to say: "This distillation rig cost me mowing lawns for two years", anyways.

Haha, my distillation rig actually cost me only 1.5 hours mowing, aka $40. The rest of the pieces were gifts.
And Darn-nit, I wanted to get married..... :) But then again, I guess a wife gets rid of all the profits of your industrial lab...

It's not a "chance". It's a free offer.

I have an account w/ Fisher, and my "sales rep" contacted me (email), asking why I was interested in the Nalgene wear.

I explained that I am just starting to equip my lab, and have most of the glassware I need but I am looking into plastic ware as both a back up, and potentially as an alternative.

We discussed a few of the products that I have, and some of the things I may need.

Today the truck came... (FedX this time).
He sent 4 beakers (varied), 4 wash bottles (varied), 4 Erlenmeyer's (varied), a titration burrett, and a large bench mat.

It really pays off to approach these companies, and talk to them.

Even if you are a student, or a home hobbyist, there are programs that you will fit into for receiving free or reduced cost hardware.

To top this off, Lab Armour sent a second sample of those Lab Beads, and Dr. Bobs package(s) arrived. All within one hour of each other... It's like Xmas up in here!!! :D

Or at least they said the would. No confirmation e-mail yet so.....

They have warehouses all over the world. I ordered a 4 station funnel stand from Burkle (Germany), and the tracking is from New Jersey.

I hope they vacuum packed the box. I don't have a need for Jersey air...:(
