Dear Richard,

We have found that media is better purchased directly from the manufacturer
themselves as distribution sources delay the needed items as it is not
stocked in their warehouse.  I assume you are talking about supply in New
Jersey?  This is important as you need to look at where the media is made
and can be sent in the shortest route to you.  For irradiated media:

Becton Dickenson is in Maryland and Wisconsin
PML is in Rhode Island and in Oregon
BioMerieux is in Chicago and St. Louis

For non-irradiated media:

Remel is in Kanas
Gen Labs (don't know website)

The key to assured delivery with this type of product that has four month
dating is a blanket order specifying "X" bottles per month.  Without that,
your in trouble.  We use quite a lot of media at VAI and we have found it
is better to have more than we need and have to discard excess as appossed
to holding up testing awaitig delivery from suppliers.

Unfortunately, all have their moments with delivery.

Hope this helps.
