Know where to get a Geiger Counter in Singapore?

For a friend in Tokyo.

There's one on the classified site here but it's too old of a model for his purposes.

I'm guessing you've tried ebay? Doesn't appear to be located in Singapore but can be delivered?

sales are booming! though eating lots of imported kelp has high dosage of iodine, which may help, sea salt too, though do not take more than the recommended dose.

Sim Lim Tower might carry such stuff. A lot of industrial components and electronics.

Eating sea salt... yeah great plan there :)

How about just taking an 'A-Z multivitamin' each day? (I just bought 180 for £10.50 from Boots in the UK, and same price for 180 Cod Liver Oil capsules, and then they were on a '3 for 2' offer on supplements! > So you could use that offer to get a year and a half's 'A-Z' (includes iodine) for £21. )

Holland & Barrett are pushing their promotion in Singapore with a buy 1 get one free, it is there introduction into the Singapore market designed to take market share. They have 5 franchise shops here! So maybe you can save on postage.


Supplements are amazingly expensive in SG, so it is a market ripe for competition.

I'd be interested to see if H&B, US owned, sell shark fin capsules in SG, as a jumbo sized campaign by SCUBA divers forced them to stop doing so in the UK in '09/10...

ksl, go back and read your first post in this thread and tell me where you mentioned anything about where to buy a Geiger Counter (the topic). You were off and running with iodine & seaweed.....

though eating lots of imported kelp has high dosage of iodine, which may help, sea salt too, though do not take more than the recommended dose.


Not too sure how Brah, eating lots of kelp is going to help him find a Geiger Counter.?!?

Granted, JR8 picked up where you left off though...... :wink:

ME? Trolling? Would I do that? Nah! :devil:

Sim Lim Tower is a lot of B to B so be sure to visit Saturday, not Sunday. Even then, you may find some stores closed.
