>We purchase Greiner 35mm vented plates from Bellco Glass, Inc., P.O. Box B, 
340 Edrudo Rd., Vineland, NJ 08360, ph. (800) 257-7043.  They come in cases of 
740 plates for $55.95 / case delivered at quantities of 50 cases (7.6 
cents/plate).  They're sturdier (and cheaper) than Andy's plates.  We have a 
standing order with them -- they deliver any quantity desired on a monthly 
basis.  We also purchase 60 mm plates from them at 7.3 cents per plate.  Does 
anyone know of better prices for either size, or good prices on 24-well 
microtiter dishes?
