    Science teachers, from which companies do you order your lab supplies? Carolina Biological Supply is, of course, well known. I received a catalog from Fisher Science Education the other day. Where have you found the best prices and/or products?

    I just ordered some supplies from Arbor Scientific. I have also used education Innovations (http://www.teachersource.com/). We also use Flinn.

    Carolina has the best products (and the best website), but Wards often beats them on price.

    We mainly use Carolina. They have great customer service reps who will help you with anything you need.

    Great, thanks! I was not previously aware of any of these companies.

    Cynmar (www.cynmar.com) is the cheapest I've found, for what they carry. Don't buy 30% hydrogen peroxide from them, though. It's not packaged properly.
