Strains and plasmids for research

To cover the handling costs for strains and plasmids a fee is requested which only covers the strain collections expense. You do not buy the strains or plasmids. The strains will be delivered for scientific research purposes only. Please consider that in case of commercial application licence fees may become applicable.

Shipment and running time

Three to four working days will be necessary to process your order if your order form contains all information needed. All material will be mailed as merchandise mail with DHL. Packaging and shipping costs will be 15 Euro. Within Europe the delivery time of a letter requires by our experience three to ten working days. For overseas shipment the delivery time will be approximately one to two weeks.

Courier service

If you intend to use a courier service we prefer to cooperate with Federal Express. Please specify your Federal Express account number in your order and you will be billed for the courier service costs directly. When Federal Express receives the strains or plasmids we inform you on the airway bill number.

We are not able to engage other courier services.
