 Ordering & Pricing Information 


  Estimated cost of shipping

To minimize the shipping cost to you, BACPAC Resources Center recommends that you provide us with your institution's shipping account; otherwise we will add shipping cost where applicable, but at a slightly higher fee due to overhead charges. For example:
Domestic (USA): $40.

Note: For large order, additional shipping cost may be applied.

International: $65+ depending on country.


For international shipment of large orders, we also recommend World Courier to avoid long delays or losses due to Customs regulations and procedures in the recipient's country. The recipient must make arrangement with World Courier, then provide BACPAC with the courier job number and broker's name and phone number.

BACPAC Resoures Center cannot share the financial responsibility for delays or losses at the borders, or at any point during mailing.

  How Long will it take to receive your order

Once you have submitted your order, please check your account regularly and track the status of your order. You can follow the progress of your package using the tracking number that will be provided online for your order upon its shipment.

Individual BAC/PAC clones:  We attempt to get all orders shipped to you within 2-3 days after you've submitted the order.  Orders submitted after 2:00PM Pacific Time on weekdays will be considered the following day. Clone orders received late in the week will not go out until early the following week.  Occasionally this schedule will be delayed due to Holidays or the volume of orders we receive.

Individual fosmid clones: Due to time requirements of offsite retrieval and phage testing, fosmid clones take longer to process then regular BAC/PAC clones. We attempt to ship fosmid orders to you within 2-3 weeks after you've submitted the order. 

Filter Sets:  We attempt to get the order out to you on the same day if we receive it prior to 1:00PM Pacific Time weekdays. Occasionally, we run out of inventory of filters and it may take up to a few weeks. In cases where filter sets are backordered, we will indicate the expected delivery date via email.

Library Plate Collections:  Shipment of entire library plate collections will be coordinated with the recipient as to a mutually acceptable shipment date.  Orders are all subject to library availability.  We do assemble waiting lists for libraries that are out of stock and awaiting replication.
