[Histonet] Dako

I believe it was about a year ago that the family that started Dako finally sold it. The "new powers that be" have since raised prices 3 to 4 times. Luckily I do not need very many of their products and am now trying to avoid them, as well as other companies that have gobbled up smaller companies. 

I also don't buy from companies that try to make even more by charging outragious shipping and handling. I had one company try to charge $65 for shipping one tiny vial of antibody. I cancelled the order and found it from another company. I own my own lab and write out the checks and pay the bills, so I see what everything costs.

I have found that the Vector ImmPress detection works just as well as Envision, if not better, with less background and Vector charges actual shipping. I have no invested interest in Vector, just a happy customer.

With the brunt of the bad economy yet to hit, these companies need to remember business needs customers.
