Orders are processed and shipped until 4 PM Pacific Standard Time. This means you may place orders up to 7 PM on the east coast and receive them by 10 AM the next morning. Unless you specify otherwise, orders are shipped by the fastest and most economical method. We have selected UPS and FedEx for all domestic deliveries. Refrigerated goods are shipped to arrive in three days. Non-refrigerated goods may be shipped by ground unless needed earlier. Products ordered may be filled from different warehouses and items may ship and arrive at different times. We will not charge customers for product shipped more than four business days after order is processed and credit cleared for shipment.

Return Policy

All return products and instruments, by standard operating procedure, must have a Return Goods Authorization (RGA) and the return is to be approved by management. All products ( instruments and reagents) are not returnable after 30 days from the date received. Items returned for credit must be in the original package (unmarked and unopened), must be unexpired, have been stored and handled properly and should include a copy of the packing slip. Drop Shipments, special orders, special stock, opened products and instruments are not returnable or refundable unless the reason for the return results from a manufacturer defect, in which Carolina Liquid Chemistries has had the opportunity to replace and a formal complaint has been made, a complaint number assigned, investigated and confirmed by the Quality Assurance department that there is indeed a defect. In the event the wrong product is ordered and/or a return is approved, a restocking fee of 25% will apply.
