    3. Standard Orders: No minimum order quantity is required, unless specifically noted in the catalog. Orders cannot be revised or cancelled once a delivery note has been created.

Freight or shipping and handling charges will be prepaid and added to your invoice.

    5. Packaging: In an effort to be environmentally friendly, BD Biosciences consistently seeks ways to reduce solid waste and ships products when possible using environmentally compatible and recyclable containers without ice pack. Shipping experiments have been performed that show most reagents are stable when shipped at ambient temperature. Products shipped with dry ice or ice packs are shipped according to their appropriate shipping conditions. Upon receipt, product should be stored under the conditions indicated by the technical data sheet.

    6. Shortages or Damaged Goods: BD Biosciences must be notified of any claims for shortages or damaged products within 72 hours of receipt of the products or they shall be deemed accepted by you.

    7. Reagent Returns: BD Biosciences Customer Service must be notified within 14 days after receipt of the product of any request to return a reagent product. A return authorization is required for all returns. Not all requests for return will be granted: for example, in the case of a Buyer's purchasing error or change in the order subsequent to shipping the product, authorization will not be granted. Special order and custom products or products which cannot be resold will not be authorized for return absent a defect. BD may choose to verify any performance problems prior to authorizing return or replacement. All return shipping costs are to be paid by the Buyer. Please contact the Customer Service department toll free within the U.S. at (877) 232-8995 to request authorization to return, information, or clarification of our policies.

    8.

If BD Biosciences makes a shipping error, the product can be returned at BD Biosciences' expense and no restocking fee will apply.

    9. Payment Terms: Terms are net 30 days from date of invoice. BD Biosciences shall have the right to delay shipment or suspend performance under any agreement, if payment under any agreement or order between Buyer and BD Biosciences is not received when due or is rescinded. Buyer warrants that it has funds or approved funding for all payments to be required under any purchase order placed or agreement executed with BD Biosciences. If Buyer fails to pay any invoice when due, BD Biosciences may also charge Buyer a late payment charge equal to the lesser of one and one-half percent (1½%), or the maximum permissible rate under California law, per month on the outstanding balance.

Buyer recognizes that BD Biosciences has manufactured the products at the instruction and to specifications provided by Buyer and has not independently tested the products for any characteristics other than those set forth on the label. Buyer takes all responsibility for confirming the appropriateness of the products for Buyer's intended use. BD assumes that Buyer has all rights necessary for the manufacture, use and sale of the products as they are pursuant to Buyer's specifications and makes no claims or inquiries as to such rights. Buyer agrees to indemnify and hold harmless BD Biosciences against any claims or damages relating to the failure to have sufficient rights.

Information Provided to Third Party Suppliers: BD Biosciences may provide your information to suppliers of reagents, suppliers of hardware and software included in its instruments, or to integrators or other subcontractors whom BD Biosciences uses to manufacture or ship product to you. This information would be limited to product, purchase date, customer name and address and would be used for warranty claim or recall purposes.

    13. Reagent Warranties: BD Biosciences products are warranted only to conform to the quantity and contents stated on the label at the time of delivery to the Buyer, or, with respect to custom products; the specifications agreed with the customer at the time the order is taken.

    14. Proprietary Software BD™ FACSLink Software License and Warranties: In consideration of the purchase price you pay for any instrument, BD's proprietary application and system software and related documentation are licensed to you by BD Biosciences. You own the media on which the software is recorded, but BD Biosciences retains title to the software. This license allows you to use the software on a single computer and to make one copy of the software in machine readable form for backup purposes only. BD FACSLink software is licensed to you pursuant to a license agreement that is agreed at the time of installation and that BD has the right to enforce. BD proprietary and BD FACSLink software contain copyrighted material, trade secrets, and other proprietary information, and in order to protect them, you may not decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, or reduce the software to human-perceivable form. All software and related documents are provided "AS IS" and without warranty of any kind. BD Biosciences does not warrant that the functions contained in the software will meet your requirements, or that the operation of the software will be uninterrupted or error-free, or that defects in the software will be corrected. Software, when purchased after the initial instrument purchase, will assume the warranty or maintenance service agreement duration of the original instrument. If this purchase occurs during the last three months of the system warranty or maintenance service agreement, or later, it will be considered a stand-alone purchase and will receive a three month warranty from the date of installation or a four month warranty from date of shipment, whichever occurs first. BD Biosciences will replace, free of charge, any defective media provided that it is returned during the warranty period to BD Biosciences. This limited warranty on the media runs only to the original Buyer and cannot be transferred or sold. This warranty does not apply if the product has been damaged by accident, abuse, misuse, misapplication or if the product has been modified.

    Service for BD FACSLink software may be provided by Data Innovations, Inc. BD FACSLink uses Data Innovations' Instrument Manager™ software.

    15. Third Party Software Warranty: Third party software, not developed by BD Biosciences, will carry the warranty, if any, of the third party software vendor (e.g. Microsoft, Verity Software House), not of BD Biosciences.

    16. Instrument Warranties: BD Biosciences warrants that its flow cytometry instruments will perform in accordance with the specification described in the catalog or in the case of custom instruments, the specifications agreed to at the time the order is taken. The warranty period for instruments is 12 months and covers service Monday through Friday 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM local time. The twelve month warranty will begin upon installation or thirty days after the date of shipment, whichever occurs first. Only the original BUYER of the instrument may enforce this warranty and this warranty applies only to products purchased and installed in the United States by an authorized BD Biosciences service representative or another party approved by BD Biosciences. BD Biosciences will install its instrument after shipment or reimburse the purchaser for actual costs incurred to have a third party install the instrument. The maximum reimbursement to BUYER for third-party installation varies with the type of instrument. The third-party installer must be approved in writing by an authorized representative of BD prior to installation for warranty to become effective. Subject to the Service terms below, BD Biosciences will replace or repair, at its option free of charge, any instrument or part, excluding consumable items, as listed in the current BD Biosciences catalog or Consumable Price List (as the same may be modified from time to time), which fails within the warranty period, due to defects in materials or workmanship, provided that the instrument has been operated at all times in accordance with the instruction manual and user's guide by, or under the direct supervision of, a certified operator who has attended the BD Biosciences Training Course for the instrument or completed the self-training prior to operating the instrument. The warranty terms for each type of instrument are set forth below and are described in the Service terms section of this document. Only the unexpired original warranty period on the instrument shall be in effect on any replacement parts, which may be new or reconditioned at the discretion of BD Biosciences. Products not manufactured by BD Biosciences are not covered by this warranty, but instead will carry any warranty direct from the specified manufacturer or supplier.

Options purchased after the initial instrument purchase will assume the remaining warranty or maintenance service agreement of the original instrument, unless the purchase occurs during the last three months of the system warranty or maintenance service agreement, or later, in which case it will be considered a standalone purchase and will receive a 90-day warranty from the date of installation or a 120-day warranty from the date of shipment, whichever occurs first.

    18. Spare Parts Warranties:
    A.
     Installation by an Authorized BD Biosciences Service Representative: Time and Material parts are warranted for 90 days after installation or 120 days after shipment, whichever is shorter. If a repairable part fails within the warranty period it will be replaced at no charge. Labor and travel associated with the service visit is not covered and is considered billable.
    B.  Installation by Other Personnel: BD Biosciences does not provide a warranty on parts not installed by an authorized BD Service representative. No returns will be accepted or credits issued for material ordered via the Technical Support Center or Customer Service Department.

    21. Governing Law: Any order placed or contract made with BD Biosciences shall be governed by the laws of the State of California and both parties hereby submit and waive all objections to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of California and the federal courts located in California.

    TERMS OF SERVICE FOR BD BIOSCIENCES INSTRUMENTS

    During Warranty Period and Term of Service Maintenance Agreement

    When BD Biosciences performs service pursuant to an instrument or parts warranty or a maintenance service agreement, it will do so subject to the following terms and conditions.

    I. General
    A. These terms control all of the dealings between the parties relating to service provided pursuant to it.

    B. Service Maintenance Agreements are not assignable by BUYER and shall not pass to the benefit of any eventual transferee of the INSTRUMENT(s) from BUYER.
    C. Acceptance of BUYER's request for Service Maintenance Agreement is conditioned on agreement with all the terms and conditions set out herein.  By issuing a purchase order, BUYER will be deemed to have accepted these terms.

    II. BD Biosciences Responsibilities
    A. Service To Be Performed: With respect to the INSTRUMENT(s) set forth in the quotation or Maintenance Service Agreement to which these terms and conditions relate (the "Term"), and subject to these terms and conditions, BD Biosciences agrees to send a Field Service Representative (a "Representative") to perform (a) the number of preventive maintenance inspections indicated above and (b) unlimited visits as reasonably requested by BUYER to perform repairs. The Representative must be given full and free access to the INSTRUMENT(s). In addition, BD Biosciences may through an authorized service provider, provide service on components and software manufactured by third parties in accordance with the warranty of such third party manufacturer. It is the responsibility of BUYER to register all third party products and software with the third party for purposes of warranty and end user license. BD Biosciences does not provide service on computer workstation printers. BD Biosciences may repair or replace any INSTRUMENT(s) at its discretion in satisfaction of its obligations hereunder.
    B. Preventive Maintenance Inspections: During each preventive maintenance visit the Representative will evaluate INSTRUMENT(s) performance and provide a preventative maintenance kit (if applicable) for use by BD Biosciences' Representative.

BUYER may use the toll-free number to speak with a BD Biosciences Representative during working days between the hours of 8AM and 12AM Eastern Time, and may leave a message at other times. If efforts to correct problems by telephone are unsuccessful and on-site service is requested, a BD Biosciences Representative will be dispatched to BUYER's location. BD Biosciences guarantees its response time for certain INSTRUMENT(s), pursuant to the description of the INSTRUMENT contained in the quotation or maintenance service agreement. Failure to meet the BD Biosciences guaranteed response time shall result in a credit as BUYER's sole remedy. The amount of this credit is set forth in the description of the INSTRUMENT contained on the quotation or maintenance service agreement and such credits must be utilized no later than 90 days following the end of the term and may be used to purchase spare parts, consumable parts (excluding reagents and sheath fluid), applied toward the renewal cost of a Maintenance Service Agreement or applied towards the tuition fee for training courses offered by BD Biosciences.
    D. Parts: BD Biosciences will provide all parts required to affect a repair covered under its service obligation, except for consumables and subject to the exclusions contained in Section III below.

    D. BUYER agrees to maintain a safe work environment and to comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations relating to safety in order to ensure the safety of all Representatives and other BD employees and agents who enter BUYER's premises. BD Biosciences may, from time to time in response to a concern over the safety of Representatives, visit BUYER's facilities in which the Representative and other BD employees and agents perform Services hereunder in order to audit safety compliance. Such audit would only occur during working hours and at a time reasonably agreed. BD Biosciences, its affiliates, personnel, agents and subcontractors shall not be required to enter potentially hazardous areas and BD Biosciences reserves the right to determine whether and under what circumstances its personnel, agents or subcontractors shall enter any premises. In no event will BD Biosciences be obligated to perform Services if it is not, in its sole discretion, satisfied with respect to safety.
    E. In the event that the INSTRUMENT(s) being serviced has at any time been operated in a location that falls into the category of a Biosafety Level 4 laboratory (a "BSL 4" laboratory) according to the then-current edition of "Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories" published by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, or that would in BD Biosciences' opinion fall into such category were it located in the United States, it shall be the responsibility of BUYER to remove from such laboratory or other facility the INSTRUMENT(s) and decontaminate to the satisfaction of BD Biosciences, in its sole discretion, before any work is performed on the INSTRUMENT(s). All costs associated with such removal, decontamination, and re-installation shall be borne by BUYER. With respect to laboratories operated under the designation Biosafety Level 3 (A "BSL 3" laboratory), BD Biosciences reserves the right to evaluate the conditions existing therein. BUYER agrees and shall render full cooperation, including but not limited to affirmative disclosures related to any hazards in such facilities. BD Biosciences may conduct a risk assessment and require remediation to its satisfaction before any work is performed on an INSTRUMENT(s) located in a BSL 3 laboratory.

BUYER agrees to notify BD Biosciences of its status as a BSL 3 or BSL 4 laboratory and to provide notice of all relevant protocols and any changes thereto. BUYER agrees and shall render full cooperation, including but not limited to affirmative disclosures related to any hazards in such facilities. All required safety training, personal protective equipment, instrument test equipment and necessary tools required for instrument service located in a BSL 3 laboratory must be supplied by the BUYER. BD Biosciences reserves the right to discontinue any and all BSL 3 laboratory instrument service until appropriate personal protective equipment and tools are furnished by the BUYER. Calibration of the tools and test equipment are the sole responsibility of the BUYER. No parts may be returned to BD Biosciences and must be disposed of by the BUYER. BD Biosciences field service personnel are not required to take BD tools and calibration equipment into the BSL 3 laboratory space. If tools are not available, BD Biosciences is not obligated to provide on-site repair service. In the event the BUYER is unable to make the instrument available for scheduled preventative maintenance in a 60 day period from the initial planned service date, BUYER waives the right to have that scheduled service visit performed during the contract year or thereafter. No compensation will be provided by BD Biosciences for any missed preventative maintenance services.
    F. BUYER agrees to indemnify and hold harmless BD BIOSCIENCES, its affiliates and their employees, agents, officers and directors (the "BD Indemnified Parties") from and against (a) any and all actions or claims brought by a third party relating to the services and parts supplied hereunder unless BUYER can show that such third party action involves death or personal injury and results solely from BD Biosciences' gross negligence or willful misconduct, in which case BUYER agrees to indemnify and hold the BD Indemnified Parties harmless from and against any amounts required to be paid in excess of the amounts actually paid by BUYER to BD Biosciences hereunder; and (b) any and all liability relating to BUYER's failure to comply with Section III. With respect to laboratories operated under the designation Biosafety Level 3 (a "BSL 3" laboratory), BD BIOSCIENCES reserves the right to evaluate the conditions existing therein. BUYER agrees and shall render full cooperation, including but not limited to affirmative disclosures related to any hazards in such facilities. BD BIOSCIENCES will conduct a risk assessment and require remediation to its satisfaction before any work is performed on an INSTRUMENT(s) in a BSL 3 laboratory. BUYER's indemnification obligations hereunder shall include the payment of reasonable attorney's fees.
    G. Upon purchase of a maintenance service agreement, BUYER is obligated for the duration of the agreement specified and is responsible for payment in full. Maintenance service agreements are not cancelable.

    IV. Exclusions
    Service does not include consumable items (except preventive maintenance kits as applicable).

    Neither the warranty nor the maintenance service agreement provide for Service relating to damage caused to the INSTRUMENT(s) or any part thereof, by accident, the elements, failure of electrical power, Acts of God, the use of unauthorized parts or reagents or negligence. Work performed by BD Biosciences on the INSTRUMENT(s) made necessary as a result of such causes shall be billed to the BUYER at BD Biosciences' then prevailing rate for parts, labor and travel expenses.

    Any work to be performed by BD Biosciences on a weekend or BD Biosciences designated holiday is subject to availability and will be billed at weekend/holiday rates in effect at the time of the service, unless otherwise indicated by maintenance service agreement.
