Looking for extra BioAnalyzer chips
 
Hi folks,

I seem to have an enormous excess of BioAnalyzer reagents (>20 boxes) but a shortage of chips (only 7 boxes!). We use them every day, so I guess this is just the accumulation of years of extra volume.

- Agilent won't sell me the chips alone
- We sometimes re-use the chips (as per the BioTechniques paper) but with mixed results
- We do know the underlying chips are the same regardless of the labels; I have purchased the cheaper DNA kits just to get more chips

I'm wondering if anyone is in the opposite situation and would like to sell me their excess chips? I don't mind if the chips are expired - we've never seen problems with that.

Thank you!
