Important information which not all websites tell you, make an informed decision before purchase.

You may find a DUBIOUS website stating "working in partnership with Philips" but surprisingly NOT supplying Philips Lamps. They may even quote "UVB narrowband TL/01 for psoriasis, & say words like "philips electronic ballasts" thus, misleading people to belive that they also supply Philips lamps. They also state hospital results & providing quality brand names such as Philips" NOTE CAREFULLY: the dictionary definition of the word "SUCH" ..specific, but not known or similar!
