    Hi everyone,

    I am looking for a Thai scientific company that is equivalent more or less to Frey Scientific, Carolina Biological Supplies, or NASCO that sells biological materials and lab consumables (like alcohol, parafilm, tubes, etc.)

    I am holding off trying to order from either of those 3 above (and online sites) due to the high cost of goods and shipping, and long delivery time. I need everything from insect mounts, animal skulls and bones, comparative anatomy stuff to be ready in a few weeks time.

    Where do local schools or even museums get their stuff?

    Thank so much for your responses.

    Maybe try Bengarpornrat Scientific Ltd
    4/341 Soi Taharnarkart (Phaholyothin 52) Phaholyothin Road Saimai
    Phayathai, Bangkok 10400
    Thailand
    tel: 5236072

    If that doesn't work, have a chat with a laboratory technician at one of the fancy hospitals like Bumrungrad and they would likely know where to get the things you need.

    Have you checked with your school's science department? The science HOD should have a good line on everything. If this doesn't pan out, let me know and I'll check with my school. We get everything no problem, up to and including pure sodium.

    Thanks guys! I have checked with my school and almost everyone resorted to ordering biological specimens from the US. As for lab supplies and consumables, basically not much is done here in the way of experiments. I will check out that local contact, @happynz. Thank you again!

    Happy people who have full access to a lab.

    You will never know how lucky you are :hilarious:...
