"I don't have time to compare chemical prices."
Using innovative software we search and curate over 1,400,000 products.
"If you don't know what you are paying then you're probably paying too much."
Transparent pricing - no more surprises when the shipping bill arrives.

“I had a very positive experience shopping at P212121. The price was terrific, I received the item in less than a week, and it worked as advertised. The products have been reliable, so I'm certainly going to give them more of my business in the future.”

"We love the easy of online ordering and not having to ask for quotes from sales representatives. It’s amazing how they usually have better prices than our academic discount!"
Nathan Luebbering, Research Scientist, Cincinnati Children's Hospital
"Our lab saved at least 50% on microcentrifuge and conical tubes extending the value of our grant. Their prices are almost always lower than other major sellers. Plus, the Live Help tool is a lifesaver — I know that I can always get a quick answer to any question I have on my orders."
In 2009 while Sean Seaver, PhD was pursuing a doctoral degree at the University of Toledo. The research lab in which he worked was running out of funding.
In an effort to save money, he created a large spreadsheet of chemicals and supplies that would be needed to finish his research. It soon became clear that it was possible to attain significant savings on items if they were order from small manufacturers instead of using their academic discount.
The spreadsheet took weeks to prepare and soon other graduate students were asking where was the best place to buy supplies. As you may know comparing chemicals and supplies can be quite tedious and time consuming. The word soon spread and soon professors in other departments started asking where to attain supplies. In 2010, in order to make the process more efficient than emailing in requests the company P212121 and this website were created.
