Conditions of Sale

Ordering Information:

Please order by catalogue number and description and where applicable please supply any necessary additional information such as size, material etc. In cases where an accessory is required for direct fitting to an electron microscope the make and model should be specified.
We do not apply a minimum order charge for online purchases, but a despatch and packing charge is added to the cost of the goods.

We can accept telephoned, emailed or faxed orders, provided an official purchase order number is quoted and the full address, both for the delivery of goods and for the invoice. If your order qualifies for exemption from VAT, please state this clearly when placing the order and send a copy of the exemption certificate.

Order confirmations must be clearly marked. If they are not marked, and result in a duplicate shipment, a restocking charge of 10% will be made when the surplus goods are returned. Goods which are ordered in error may only be returned for credit after receiving our authority and returns number. In such cases we reserve the right to apply a 10% restocking charge.
Orders may not be cancelled without prior written agreement which may be subject to a cancellation charge.


Although we try to maintain product stability, we reserve the right to change specifications without prior notice. Written quotations, with a validity of 30 days unless otherwise stated, can be provided upon request. We are happy to negotiate discounts for bulk purchases.


All prices quoted exclude packing, carriage and VAT and are subject to alteration without prior notice. We reserve the right to invoice the goods at the prices prevailing at the date of despatch. The prices are in pounds sterling. Special pricing applicable while stocks last. No additional discount will be applied to special prices.

Payment Terms:

Payment is due 30 days after the invoice date for customers with credit approval. Others should provide payment with orders after first consulting our sales department for the appropriate prices and despatch charges. We are also able to accept payment by Visa and Mastercard.

Title of goods:

Goods supplied against customer orders remain the property of Agar Scientific Ltd until they are paid for in full.

Overseas orders:

Overseas customers should contact our local representative who in addition to processing their order can provide full technical and pricing information. For countries not so served we are pleased to receive direct orders. In these cases payment can be made in advance, by an irrevocable letter of credit confirmed by a London bank or by cash against documents sent to the bank of the customer. Alternatively, we may be able to accept payment by credit card.

The buyer is responsible for the payment of all duties, local taxes and clearance fees that may apply.

Despatching Policy:

For UK orders, we will normally send partial shipments if one or more of the items is not immediately available. The outstanding items are forwarded as soon as possible.
Export orders are normally only dispatched when all the required items have been assembled. Shipments are made by air parcel post, air freight, surface mail, or courier in accordance with instructions from the customer. However, when some of the goods are classed as hazardous, we must retain authority to ship by the mode of transport determined by the appropriate shipping regulations.

Claims for Damage or Short Delivery:

Please notify us within ten days if goods are received damaged or anything is missing from the consignment. If external damage to the package is apparent please endorse the signature on the carrier’s note accordingly.  In the case of non delivery this must be reported to us within 14 days of the despatch date shown on the invoice.

Returns and refunds

All stocked goods are covered by our returns guarantee. Please obtain authorisation and return within 30 days, unused and in the original packaging for a prompt replacement, exchange or refund. To obtain a Return Materials Authorisation number (RMA) before returning goods please call Customer Services on +44 (0)1279 215 506.

Special Order and non-stocked items may only be returned if damaged or faulty. 

Goods must be returned in pristine condition in the original packaging. We reserve the right to withhold full credit if any goods are received back without their original packaging or in a condition unfit for re-sale. A re-stocking/inspection charge will apply for goods regarded as unsuitable or ordered in error.


We pride ourselves on processing and sending customer orders out quickly. So please call our customer service team directly on +44 (0)1279 215 506 if you have placed an order that you wish to cancel.
