LOGIN, SEARCH AND ORDER: We update our shopping cart to provide details of stocks held by different labs around Australia. OzDros will be able to take orders and arrange for the lab holding the stocks to post them directly to you.


EXISTING ACCOUNTS: From the major stock centres we expect each lab to have their own accounts (which most of you already have). Bloomington, Kyoto and Vienna hold our import permit and they will include it with your shipment. The stocks need to be shipped to our address c/o Jianbin Wang (who's name is on the import permit). We rarely have problems with shipments from these centres as the process is now standardised quite well. Once we receive the stocks, we will put them through quarantine and forward them to your lab, as part of your annual subscription.


STANDARD IMPORTING PROCEDURES: When ordering from overseas labs you will need to provide them with 1) our permit, 2) our generic suppliers declaration that they can copy onto their letterhead and 3) specific instructions;
