Packaging And Transport

To cover our expenses for packaging, mailing and bank charges of lyophilized biological material we charge the following:

Risk group 1 (Exempt biological specimen), sent by first class letter
SEK 260 (Sweden) or SEK 400 (abroad) per order (maximum 15 ampoules = one letter).

Risk group 2, (Dangerous goods) sent according to IATA UN 3373 by post
SEK 440 (Sweden) or SEK 600 (abroad) per shipment (one package up to 40 ampoules)

Risk group 3, (Dangerous goods), UN 2814, can only be shipped if we find a courier company that accepts shipment to the country where you are located. This service is often very expensive, due to the risk.

SCHENKER may be used for risk group 3, UN 2814, to Sweden and Norway.

To some countries we need to send the strains with a courier company.

If a courier company, FedEx, DHL or World Courier is used for the shipment there will be additional costs.

If you have an account with any of these companies you can provide us with the account number and we will use that.

There are no duplicate charges when we are unable to deliver all cultures in one shipment
