Do advertised Express Gene turnaround times include shipping time?

  • North America: 1-2 business days
  • Europe: 2-3 business days

Express Genes ordered with glycerol stocks and Express Genes at the 10 μg - 100 μg and 100 μg - 1 mg DNA Scales (i.e. resuspended DNA) are shipped on dry ice, which may add one business day to the overall turnaround time.

General considerations that may delay shipping and delivery include:

  • Issues with payment methods
  • Country-specific import requirements
  • Biosafety sequence screening
