Prices are effective immediately and supersede all previous price lists.  It is our intention to maintain these prices throughout the year, but they are subject to change without notice.

Our pricing is set up in quantity brackets: 1-9, 10-99, etc., which apply to a single shipment to the same location.  Orders of less than $20.00 (not including freight) shall be assessed a service charge of $4.00.  Each individual shipment will be treated as a separate order. 


Prices include standard container charges. Other containers may be requested at a nominal charge.



Nebraska Scientific will ship non-hazardous products to an individual.  Bacterial & fungal cultures, chemicals, laboratory glassware/plasticware, scales and balances are sold/shipped only to institutions; they will not be sent to individuals. All individual orders MUST be prepaid, including freight charges, before items are actually shipped. Call to determine shipping charges.  We accept American Express, Discover, Mastercard and Visa credit cards.



All prices are F.O.B. shipping point.  Transportation is extra and will be added to your invoice. 


Most preserved specimens are packed in plastic storage bags and shipped in boxes, which is the most convenient and least expensive method for shipping.  All prices include standard packaging.  Other packaging, such as coolers, pails, jars or drums are available at a nominal cost.  Call for pricing if you have special packaging requirements.



All orders will be shipped promptly unless specific delivery dates are indicated.  Allow two weeks notice on orders.  In an emergency, call us and we will make exceptions when possible.  Delivery dates for living materials must always be given.



Our terms are net 30 days from date of shipping.  An interest charge of 1½% per month will be applied to any overdue account.



Live cultures are generally sent by Priority Mail or UPS 2nd day delivery.  Live frogs and turtles are sent by air freight.  Smaller shipments of preserved materials will be sent by UPS or United States Postal Service, large shipments by motor freight. UPS and motor freight deliveries cannot be made to a Post Office box  - a street address is required.  Unless specific shipping instructions are given, we will ship by the most economical way. 



We request prompt notification of damaged or unsatisfactory shipments.  Any live specimens found to be unsatisfactory will be replaced or credit given if we are notified within 2 days of receipt.  In order for you to receive credit or get replacements of preserved materials and supplies, we must be notified within 7 days of receipt of any shortages or damage in shipment.  If the shipment was delivered by UPS, FedEx ground or truck, please get an inspection report from the carrier and send this to us, with your letter, to enable us to file a claim for the damage. 


Authorization is required before any items may be returned.  Call our customer service to request  return authorization within 30 days of invoice date.  Restocking fees may apply.
