Ambient Temperature Shipping

Ambient Temperature Shipping

We are pleased to announce that from 3rd March 2014 we will be delivering a range of our molecular biology products at room temperature. We have been shipping samples of many of these products without ice for several years now and they have all undergone quality control testing after storage at room temperature.

Products that will be shipped in this way include thermostable polymerases, DNA Ladders and Protein Ladders.

A full list of molecular biology products that can ship at ambient temperature can be found here.

If you place an order for multiple items, some of which require shipping on ice, your whole order will be shipped on ice.


Our ambient temperature shipping envelopes are made from 100% recycled material and are recyclable

Environmental Benefits

Ambient temperature shipping provides many environmental benefits such as reduced packaging and reduced fuel use. It removes the need for polystyrene boxes, ice packs and the energy used in freezing them. This move builds on earlier efforts to reduce our environmental impact through refinements to our shipping policy.

Product Stability

The activity of these products is guaranteed for both cold and ambient temperature shipment.


Once you receive your order please store it at the temperature recommended on the product datacard.
