Comments

Astronomical prices – the highest I have ever seen. For example, the cost of the 24 hour rush service is $54.00 per reaction! I can think of no reason to recommend them as there are many other services in the New York area that offer equivalent service at a 1/10th the cost. In fairness to Gene Link they may have not updated their website in quites some time so it may be worth contacting them to find out what their current prices are.
