  • The order will be processed every Monday and sent at Thursday (all orders in Beijing should be picked up before, but due to the covid19, it is recommended that Beijing also choose to mail them) .
  • The fruit flies you ordered will be sent by EMS by default, and the freight will be borne by yourself. If you have other requirements, please note in the order form and email.
  • Due to weather conditions, if fruit flies ordered from July 1st to September 1st and December 15th to March 1st of the following year have problems growing due to temperature discomfort, we do not provide free re-mailing service. In addition, during this time, you need to indicate in the order mail or reply to my mail to confirm that you are aware of the risks in the mailing process.

Cost

The stock fee (not including shipping fee) and discount are similar to those of the Bloomington stock center. The number of stocks ordered is cumulative through the calendar year and need not be ordered all at once to obtain the discounted price. In addition, the order price of plasmids is $75 per plasmid. If you need drosophila injections and fruit fly customization, please consult the administrator to put forward your specific needs, and we will give a quotation after evaluation.

Stocks Ordered Cost per Stock (¥)
1-5 200(around 32 USD)
6-100 100(around 14 USD)

e.g: if you order 150 lines
5×200=1000

50×40=2000
Then you should pay: 1000+9500+2000=12500
