Who can order?
Smart Bioscience peptides are intended for laboratory use only, not for human administration. They can be delivered worldwide to public and private research laboratories.
Billing & payment
You can pay Smart Bioscience by bank transfer, credit card (MasterCard, Visa) or check. We accept EUROS (€). Payments should be made in the same currency as in quote and invoice. For first order, a pre-payment can be requested.
Standard delivery: 3 weeks
The medium lead time for classical peptide synthesis (5 to 25 aa with no modification) is 3 weeks from the purchase order date. Due to the complexity of the peptide chemistry science, delays can be experienced despite our expertise and efforts to avoid issues. In case of delay, peptides are managed by our crisis department in order to solve issues as fast as possible.
Express delivery: 10 days or no extra charges!
Smart Bioscience offers an express peptide synthesis service for classical peptides (5 to 25 aa with no modification). The objective is to ship the peptide in 10 days maximum from the purchase order date. This special service is subject to an additional fee. If peptides are shipped in more than 10 days, Smart Bioscience will not charge the express delivery additional fee but will charge a standard delivery.
