I have no experience in tc.
You can check with Quicklab in Batu Lanchang. I used to buy reagent grade chemical salts there. Mixing MS from component salts is tricky. Probably they have MS. I'll PM you their contact.

I'll be honest with you guys, I've heard that TC is quite hard to do. Even setting up TC materials can be troublesome and kinda expensive. A few members here do it, but most don't because it requires a depth of knowledge to actually do TC. But it's no harm done if you guys are willing to try. Good luck!

From what i know, if you really willing to start TC, you will have to bear some problems

1)scolded by your mom or your wife(you need to use pressure cooker-to kill germ, etc)
2)pay lots of electrical bills( you will need artificial light instead of natural life as they are keep in vessel)
3)space(you will have to set up a completely no germ/microorganism condition for tc preparation/separation)
4)distilled water(just as the ingredient)

If you are a student, it is not advisable as it cost a lot and require long patience

The cheapest startup cost should be a few hundreds. Not too useful for small scale grower. More for learnings I believe.

Bear in mind some chemical substances are hazardous. I wouldn't recommend those haven't been trained in chemistry (till around STPM) to play with it without guidance.
