We accept orders in the format that is most convenient to the customer. For best order accuracy, please include the catalog number, quantity of each item and an item description. Catalog prices are current at the time of printing, but are subject to change without notice.

Acknowledgment of Order

An order acknowledgment will be issued with each order. Included in the acknowledgment are the items ordered, quantities ordered, disposition (in stock, back ordered or direct shipped from the supplier), unit price, and extended price. The order acknowledgment may be faxed or emailed to you, depending on preference. Midland Scientific reserves the right to substitute equivalent items for orders unless specified by the customer. Ordered items may only be cancelled if the item has not already been shipped, either by the supplier or Midland Scientific. Made-to-Order items may NOT be cancelled.

A cancellation request must be submitted via email to orders@midlandsci.com. Requesting the cancellation may not guarantee that the item can be cancelled. Midland Scientific will review the request and confirm via email whether the item may be cancelled.

Shipping

Generally your order will be shipped the same day it is received. Your shipping instructions will be followed as closely as possible. However, we reserve the right to change the method for items which, when required by regulations or in our judgment, cannot be shipped by the method you specified. If special needs arise for shipping, please include instructions with your order. Otherwise, the quickest and most cost effective method will be used. Normal shipping terms are FOB shipping point. Any rush or hazardous shipments will incur additional cost. Shipments must be inspected within 24 hours of receipt and any damaged or missing merchandise must be reported within 48 hours of receipt.

Invoices

Invoices for shipped product will be billed daily and emailed to the address indicated by the customer. Invoices shipped direct from the manufacturer to the customer will be billed as of the shipping date from the manufacturer. Customers who have been approved for consolidated invoicing will have invoices consolidated per PO when the PO is complete. Thirty days after the order date, if any items remain on backorder, all open invoices will be consolidated and the backordered items will be billed separately.

Returns

All returns must be requested within 30 days and must have prior authorization from our Customer Service Department. The reason for the return, the date of purchase, the purchase order number, and the invoice number must be made known prior to returning merchandise.

Without prior authorization, all shipments for returned items will be refused. Refrigerated and sterile items are not eligible for return. Made to order and hazardous items may only be returned if stocked by MSI or if the manufacturer will take the product back. Credits issued for returned merchandise are non refundable, must be applied to future purchases, and will expire in one year if not used.
