Customer pays for Shipping Option
You can choose use your own shipping option. We can use the shipping service of your choice (FedEx, UPS or DHL) as long as you provide us with your shipping account number. Other shipping methods may be available as long as you coordinate the pickup (from our San Diego location) and delivery. For products that need dry/wet ice shipping, there is a $20 charge for shipping materials to cover the cost of the shipping materials.
Shipping At Room Temperature
Most of the time only our standard shipping charges will apply. This is because many of our products are lyophilized and can last several days or weeks in room temperature without impact on the antibody effectiveness. Shipping with wet/dry ice will be identified in the product datasheet as part of the storage requirements.
Customers selecting to split the delivery of products on a single order may be liable to multiple shipping charges, based on the product types included in each shipment. We will contact you when this may occur and you can let us know your preference before we ship.
When will my order be delivered?
Domestic orders are shipped next day delivery. International orders sometimes take between 3 to 5 business days for delivery.
Where do you ship?
We have been shipping for many years all around the world. There are few countries we do not deliver to due to governmental policies and customs requirements. Here is a list of sample locations we typically ship to:

International orders: Customs, Duties, and Taxes
You are responsible for assuring that the product can be lawfully imported to the destination country. When ordering from Aviva Systems Biology, the recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country. Orders that are shipped to countries outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.
