How fast do your products ship?
Orders typically ship within one business day of when the order was placed. Large orders may require part or all of the order to be backordered. We produce all products just-in-time and hold minimal inventory, so orders may take a week or two for production. If we need to backorder a part of your order, we will contact you after you place your order.
Where are your products made?
All of our products are produced in our state of the art facilities with rigorous quality control procedures overseen by a chemist. The majority of our products are produced in America while the remainder are produced in Europe. If you require a certificate of origin, contact us. Every product undergoes a final quality check in our New York facility before being shipped directly to your door.
I don’t think my test strip is working. Is it defective?
Although this is possible, most of the time the source of inaccurate results is the strip not being used correctly. Test strips can be complicated to use and each is designed for a very specific use.

If you are following the directions and still getting unexpected results please contact us and we will be happy to assist in troubleshooting the issue. If you purchased the incorrect strip for your application, we will work with you to find the correct test strip.

Are your products hazardous?
Most are not hazardous at all, require no SDS (Safety Data Sheet) and have no special storage or handling precautions. A few have ingredients that could be considered hazardous if consumed, though the concentration of them on our test papers is so small, it is less than what would be considered hazardous. SDSs for hazardous products are located on the bottom of each product description. The State of California requires us to label and identify products which contain certain potentially toxic materials. These products will have a note on their product page. If you desire an SDS or have questions regarding the safety of our products, send us a message.
Do you offer bulk/ wholesale discounts?
Yes! Bulk discounts are available for most products and are listed next to the “Add to Cart” button on each product page. The discounted price is automatically applied based on the number of units you have in your cart.
