IMPORT / CUSTOMS CLEARANCE INFORMATION
It is the customer's responsibility to check for any import permit requirements before placing an order. In some cases, a "Prepared culture media" permit will be required by a country's customs agency. Failure to provide a permit may result in orders being returned or destroyed by customs. If your order is returned to us, you agree to cover any return shipping charges imposed by the couriers. Once your order has been returned, you will be contacted either via e-mail or a phone call and provided with a link to pay these return shipping charges. We will then also provide a link for you to re-order new shipping of your products to your location.
It is the customer's responsibility to check if any import fees will be applied to an order upon arrival in the country where the delivery address is located. This includes any fees due to BREXIT. Failure to pay these fees may result in your order being returned or destroyed by customs. If your order is returned to us, you agree to cover any return shipping charges imposed by the couriers. Once your order has been returned, you will be contacted either via e-mail or a phone call and provided with a link to pay these return shipping charges. We will then also provide a link for you to re-order new shipping of the products to your location.
If the items being returned are dipslides, we cannot offer any refunds if the slides have :
- less than 6 months and 20 days shelf life left or
- if they have been manufactured to order (e.g. a slide that requires a production run. If you are unsure if a slide requires a production run, please contact us before placing an order).
This is because :
- All returned slides need to be quarantined for 14 days to make sure that the tubes have not been opened / breached and contaminated before resale (leaving us with 6 days to try and resell the product and deliver them to the new customer.
- We offer a minimum of 6 month's shelf life on all slides that do not include a neutraliser. The only exception to this is if the slide includes a neutraliser. If this is the case, the shelf life guarantee is 5 months. As such, the dipslides would need to have 5 months and 20 days shelf life if the returned slide has a neutraliser.
We cannot offer refunds for any orders that have failed to complete customs clearance where the reason is due to either a permit not being provided by yourself or your refusal to pay any import fees.
