  • What are customs duties and taxes?
    Customers outside the European Union
    Customs duties are added to imported goods at point of entry. The principle behind this is to match the cost of the imported product to the cost of an equivalent product manufactured domestically. This is to regulate market prices and protect industries, and is managed by the OECD.

    Depending on the country (and sometimes state/area of said country) in which you reside, imported goods may be subject to taxes. These are enforced according to the laws of your country, and collected by your government/state. As such, these are not imposed or charged by the exporter (Agrisera), nor the country in which the exporter is registered (Sweden), and thus not stated on the invoice. For goods shipped by courier companies, such as DHL and FedEx, duties and taxes owed to the border services of your country, are paid by the courier company on your behalf. The courier company will subsequently charge you this cost.

    Unless specifically exempted (as for some universities), you must pay taxes on items you import according to the laws of your country. Import taxes vary for each country, and some countries have entered into free trade agreements, as for example the member states of the European Union (see below).

    If you have questions about the import laws and fees of your country, please contact your local customs or government office.

    Customers within the European Union
    Customs duties do not apply to purchases within the EU.

    Agrisera is based in Sweden, which has been part of the EU since 1995. Value Added Tax (VAT) should not be added to sales between companies within the EU, if the buyer has a valid VAT number. Please note that EU customers cannot place an order without a valid VAT number (i.e. must be a VAT-registered business/institution). Only for customers within Sweden will VAT be added by Agrisera to the final order sum. More information can be found here.
  • Do I need an import permit?
    Customers outside the EU
    In most cases, you will not need a permit to import the goods that Agrisera provides. However, some agencies may require other licenses, permits, or certifications (see TSCA, for US customers only).

    Exception: All customers in Australia and New Zealand must provide an import permit to Agrisera prior to the goods being shipped.

    Customers within the EU
    No licenses, permits or certifications needed.
  • What is a TSCA form? (United States only)

    Agrisera goods do not contain chemicals that are included in the United States Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). However, in some cases, US customs need a TSCA form to be filled in. In such cases, an empty form will be provided to you by the courier company.

    As Agrisera products are not subject to TSCA, the certification should be a negative one ("I certify that all chemicals in this shipment are not subject to TSCA"). The information needed beyond the negative certification is the importer's name, phone number, email address and signature, as well as a short description of the products (as specified in the form).

    The TSCA form must be filled in and submitted by the importer (customer). A TSCA form provided by the exporter (Agrisera) will not be accepted. More information can be found here.

  • What is the HS code for Agrisera products?

    HS codes, also known as customs tariff numbers, are used to classify products for customs. This information is provided by the exporter (Agrisera) in the customs declaration (only applicable for exports to countries outside of the EU). All Agrisera products fall under the HS code 38221900.

  • What is a corporate registration number?
    Due to new regulations, Agrisera requires a unique identification number assigned by the state, identifying your company/institution before dispatching orders to said entity. For customers in EU member states, the VAT number for your company/instituion will suffice. For customers in countries outside of the EU, valid identification is e.g. corporate or tax registration numbers.

    Below is a list of examples of valid identification numbers.

    Employer Identification Number (EIN)
    Federal Identification Number (FEIN)
    Data Universal Numbering System number (DUNS number)
    Company Tax Identification Number (TIN)

    Unified Social Credit Number (USCN), 统一社会信用代码

    Business Identification Number (BIN)

    Corporate number, 法人番号

    RFC number, Clave del Registro Federal de Contribuyentes (Clave del R.F.C)

    Unique Entity Number (UEN)

    South Africa
    Enterprise Registration Number

    South Korea
    Business Registration Number, 사업자등록증

  • Why isn't my credit card accepted?
    For card payments, strong customer authentication (SCA) is required. This is standard for Visa and MasterCard in many countries, and ensures that multi-factor authentication is used for electronic payments. The protocol for this is called 3D Secure, and is also known as "Verified by Visa" and "MasterCard SecureCode".

    The European Union’s revised directive on payment services (PSD2) enforces new requirements to ensure that electronic payments are performed with multi-factor authentication, to increase the security of electronic payments for the buyer. This is something that all banks within the EU must abide by. Due to this, banks in the EU will not, and cannot, accept payments from credit cards that do not meet these security requirements.

    Many banks outside of the EU have the necessary multi-factor authentication as the default for the credit cards they supply, while some do not. Generally, most banks can offer multi-factor authentication, and while not always the default, it can be activated if requested.

    If you are experiencing problems with credit card payment on the Agrisera website, please ask your bank to change the settings of your credit card to support the newest multi-factor authentication (and payments to foreign banks), or, if not possible to do for your current card, provide you with a card that does.

  • Why is my order shipped at ambient temperature?
    Agrisera has chosen to provide antibodies in lyophilized format due to several benefits, which include: 

    • Longer product shelf-life
    • No risk of antibody degradation in the unlikely event of a delayed shipment
    • Environmentally-friendly shipping, with no need for dry ice (the production of which is expensive and energy-consuming)

    This method of delivering antibodies has succesfully been used by Agrisera for the last 20 years. The preserved activity of all lyophilized antibodies is confirmed by reconstitution the product and testing it in a specific technique, such as Western blot or immunolocalization.

    Upon receiving an antibody from Agrisera, which is lyophilized, it can be stored in -20°C and reconstituted before use. Specific instructions regarding reconstitution volume and addition of glycerol are provided on each product information sheet.
