Title: Is there a company that can perform my experiment and send me the results?

Is there a company that can perform my experiment and send me the results?

An affordable solution?

I do not need anything sophisticated, just a simple chemistry experiment.

Thanks!

Yes, I work for one.
Our prices typically start at 1000 and go up.
You almost certainly can't afford us.
What's the job?

It is just to combine two chemicals and see what happens, what's your company?

It seems a relatively simple idea unless the chemicals are rare/expensive/dangerous why can you not organise it !

I need to calculate concentrations, temperatures, have sensors to measure something etc. It's not baking cakes!

If you  tell me what the chemicals are there's a good chance I can tell you what will happen if they are mixed.

What about you tell me the name of your company and your cheapest competitors?

You might do better talking to a university.

This sounds like designing an experiment, rather than conducting an experiment.

Or you could view it as a campaign of experimentation, testing various mixtures and concentrations.

But as BoredChemist says, a chemist could tell you much of this by just looking at the chemical reaction you are interested in...

The reason why not is called "business". Same as the reason you won't publish the problem!
