Method of Payment: LSBio accepts purchases by Purchase Order (P.O.) number or by credit card (Visa/MasterCard/American Express only). Orders will not be processed until LSBio receives compete P.O. or credit card information.
Shipping: All LSBio products are shipped as follows:
Dry Ice Shipments:
Dry ice shipments are only available to customers located within the continental USA.
Dry ice shipments are only made on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
Each dry ice shipment will incur an additional $25 surcharge.
In the event that a Purchase Order includes both items that require dry ice shipping and items that do not, the dry ice items will be invoiced and shipped separately from the other products, and both shipments will incur separate shipping and handling fees.
Shipping of Multiple Item Orders:
In general, multiple item orders will only be shipped once all of the items in that order can be shipped together.
In the case that a multiple item order includes one or more ELISA kits, LSBio may split the order into one or more shipments depending upon the availability of the individual products.
Customers can also request that a multiple item order be split.
In the case of multiple item orders, the entire order will be held until all items can be shipped together unless otherwise requested by the customer. In the event that the customer requests that an order be split, shipping charges will apply to each resulting shipment. Billing will be on a per-shipment basis.
Shipping charges will apply to each split shipment and billing will be on a per-shipment basis.

LSBio reserves the right to charge additional shipping fees if the cost to ship to the customer exceeds these values.
LSBio will notify the customer when the order is shipped.
Shipping Conditions: Depending upon the nature of the individual products, LSBio products may be shipped at ambient temperature, 4°C, or on dry ice. In some cases products are shipped in insulated containers with ice packs in order to reduce the time the products are exposed to ambient temperatures. It is expected that upon receipt the temperature of these products will be ambient. We have found that our products are stable when shipped under these conditions. International shipments of antibodies are shipped at ambient temperature. Domestic shipments of dry ice also include one or more gel packs so that in the rare event that upon receipt all of the dry ice has sublimated, the temperature of the product will remain adequately cool. Upon receipt, end-users should remove all products from their shipping containers and store them under the recommended storage conditions as defined in each individual product’s datasheet or manual.
Customs: It is the responsibility of the purchaser to work with the Customs agency within the destination country to ensure efficient delivery; LSBio is not responsible for delays due to customs.
Holiday Shipping: The holiday shipping schedule will appear here as we get closer to the end-of-year holidays.
Payment Terms: Invoices are issued once the order is shipped. Full payment is due within 30 days of invoice date.

Customer shall be responsible for paying all applicable retail sales, use, duties or similar taxes imposed on Customer or LSBio with respect to the products provided by LSBio to Customer under this Agreement. Customer shall reimburse and hold LSBio harmless for any retail sales, use, duties or similar taxes, plus any interest and penalties, imposed or assessed against LSBio by any taxing jurisdiction with respect to the products provided by LSBio to Customer under this Agreement.
