[Biochem] Why Can't I Make Medpacs?

I have a level 18 Sith sorcerer with the crew skills Biochem, Bioanalysis and Diplomacy as it recommends. I have gathered a lot of materials with Bioanalysis and Diplomacy, including 92 biochemical bonding agents and 48 luminescent cell cultures, but I have no green goo, which is the necessary ingredient to make combat medpacs, and I only have 5 dielectrics fibers to make stims. I am gathering a bunch of stuff I can't use to craft. What are these materials for, and how can I get materials to actually use Biochem, or can I only get stuff from killing animals or gathering it in the wilds? Thanks.

you can gather from plants in the wild, harvest dead strong or elite creatures, or send your companions out on bioanalysis missions

different level plants/animals/missions give back different mats

You might need to go to a lower area to gather if you are doing the gathering yourself.
Those are the lowest two items and actually pretty common.

But the one thing I need for medpacs, green goo, I never get from my bioanalysis or diplomacy missions I send my droid on. I'm currently on Balmorra and I rarely fight creatures or find plants to harvest, so it's proving pretty hard to advance my biochem.

you will get them from bioanalysis missions (no bioanalysis mats come from diplomacy, are you sending them out on biochemical compound or biochemical sample missions. the green goo is a compound, so you need to send them out on compound missions from bioanalysis

Green Goo is extremely common off the potted plants (and occasional organic corpse) in Coruscant. At your level you can just double back, dodge the very low level bad guys, and scoop up as much as you need. This is, however, time consuming so you might want to snag a stack off the GTN. If listings are high enough to make your wallet tremble, consider using as few as possible to level past tier one - and then sell the rest to turn a nice little profit. Even with the time spent running around, it's much faster than waiting for the right kind of mission to show up, then sending out a companion and hoping they bring back the right samples.

Make sure you are running the right level and type of bioanalysis missions. If you hover over the Green Goo on the ingredient list, it will tell you "level 1 compound' or "level 2 sample" or whatever it is. Match it up with the right mission. I made this mistake a lot.

Guys, I need help with Biochem. I just cannot use this skill anymore. Yesterday I was making some stims, made like 5 of them, than did some questing, than try to make some meds, but i just cannot use Biochem anymore. I am Sub, not F2P, my companions are not on the missions, or anything, I have suff to make like 70 meds, but still, when i click on the Meds icon, nothing happens, same with the stims I was making before! And I have stuff to make those stims as well, many of them. I restarted UI and game client, still nothing, pls help!

Edit: sorted

Some mats are sold for cost on the GTN. You might find a 99 stack of green goo for like 15k. When grinding up a crafting skill, I am always on the lookout for underpriced mats on the GTN to save me the time of having to gather them
