  • Equipment is guaranteed against defects of manufacture for a period of one year.

  • Do not attempt to disassemble, modify, or open any product without the approval of V&P Scientific, Inc.  Evidence of any attempts to open and/or modify our product, including any peeling, puncturing, or removal of any labels will void V&P Scientific, Inc. warranty.

  • Pins for pin tools and replicators

    At the time of shipment to you, we certify that the pins have been validated to the standards of the V&P Scientific Inc. Quality Control Department.  Validation includes thorough cleaning, testing using a FITC assay with the resulting CV listed on an attached Pin Validation Test Results sheet, and a visual inspection.  V&P also certifies that the pins are in new and pristine condition at the time of shipment.


    If pins are returned due to poor performance resulting from action by the customer, such as improper or inadequate cleaning, physical damage or other misuse, a charge for pin cleaning and/or replacement will be necessary.




No returns on custom items. No returns on products that have been in contact with lab reagents (products such as wands, manifolds, reservoirs, pin tools, etc.).

There is a 25% restocking charge for returns due to customer ordering error.

We try to make sure you have ordered the correct product from the beginning. So if you realize, within a reasonable period of time, that you have ordered the wrong item, we will take it back. But in order to process the return and prepare the product for re-sale we have to charge a fee.

Returns are not accepted without a written authorization. Please contact us for return instructions by phone (858-455-0643) or email (

We would like to have an open return policy, but this is not practical given the nature of the work done by our customers. If the product has been used with hazardous materials (radioactive, biological, chemical) we cannot take it back. If the product has been used with a material that renders it useless or unsellable (such as a dye or material that leaves a visible residue), we cannot take it back. Unfortunately, in most cases this is what will happen to products once they have been used in a research setting.

As long as the product is used as it was designed to be used, then we will make every attempt to make sure that it is functioning for that purpose. Our products are under warranty for materials and workmanship for one year after purchase.



  • All products are intended to be used for research purposes only. V&P Scientific will not be liable for use of this product for other than its intended purpose.
  • They are not to be used for diagnostic purposes.

Product Changes

  • We reserve the right to change specifications of our products at any time without notice.



  Rush Orders


Most V&P products have a general lead time specific to that product. If we have that product in stock, we can process and ship your order next day. If the item is backordered or requires assembly, our sales reps can discuss realistic lead times to receive your order. If you need any products more quickly, there will be a rush fee added to your order. Please note that rush fees will depend on the product and how fast you need to receive your order.



  Custom Product Guidelines


V&P Scientific, Inc. goes to great effort to provide quality custom products that perform the task they were requested to do. A happy satisfied customer is our goal.

Occasionally in the past we have encountered clients who change the requirements of the task or the rules of performance or the work environment after we have delivered the custom device. Because of these past Moved Goal Posts experiences we request that our custom clients disclose in detail exactly what their requirement expectations are and the work environment prior to our submitting a quote on custom products. That way both the customer and V&P Scientific, Inc. will know The Rules of the Game and neither side will have a disappointing experience.

Please describe the purpose of your custom device in detail.

Please describe the requirements of the task to be performed.

Please describe the rules of performance (i.e. speed of action, % bound, volume delivered, accuracy etc.).

Please describe the surrounding environment that may affect the performance of our custom device (temperature, sensitive to magnetic material, close to magnetic material, robot deck, sensitive to vibration, etc.).
