US shipping details
Cell products ship at ambient temperature for next day delivery. Shipping costs are estimates only. The shipping charge for domestic overnight delivery of cell products is $20.00 per shipment. Shipment of frozen cells and delivery to extended areas will be higher.

Freight terms are FOB Origin via DSHB-preferred carrier, pre-paid and added to the invoice. Purchase orders should indicate freight terms. 

The DSHB does not offer same day shipment. 

International shipping cost
Cell products ship at ambient temperature. For the majority of countries, international shipping cost is $37. This is an estimate only. Shipping cost to select countries can be as much as $80 to ship supernatant, concentrate, bioreactor supernatant and growing cells. Estimated international shipment cost of frozen cells is $150-$200. Some countries prohibit dry ice shipments. Please note that some regions incur an additional extended delivery area fee. 

Requests to include special documents in shipments for customs clearance might incur an additional $10 fee at our discretion. Please contact us at dshb@uiowa.edu with any questions. 

International shipping details
The DSHB ships internationally via FedEx and UPS at ambient temperature. Carrier choice is at our discretion. Frozen cells ship on dry ice via FedEx only. Please inform us when your institution will be closed for any holidays to avoid unnecessary delivery delays. 

International customs duties and taxes
It is the responsibility of the customer to arrange for prompt payment of customs duties. We make every effort to provide the required paperwork for customs clearance. However if special circumstances exist, advise us of any anticipated difficulty as soon as possible. Please provide us with your importer registration/identification number for clearance (i.e. EIN, SSN, VAT, GST, RFC, etc.) if applicable. Shipments to Australia and New Zealand require permit allowing you to import antibodies. We prepay the duties at these current rates for the following countries to avoid customs delays: Australia ($45), New Zealand ($30) and Italy ($36).

Pre-payment of customs duties OPTION
To alleviate possible delivery delays resulting from the freight carrier requiring cash payment of customs duties upon delivery, when possible, we can pre-pay customs duties on international shipments. These fees would be billed as a separate line item on your DSHB invoice. To use this service option, you must request pre-payment of customs duties when placing your order. If paying with a purchase order, please list the customs duties pre-payment cost as a separate line item. Contact us at 
dshb@uiowa.edu or our secure fax at 1-319-359-4079 with any questions. Thank you.
