General Information
All Morpholino orders must be placed using either the online order form, or the fax order form. The majority of the orders are shipped within two weeks

While Gene Tools provides extensive customer support by telephone because of the potential for errors in the entry of sequence information we do NOT accept orders by telephone

Orders submitted online are the easiest to process, as they are already in digital format. However, orders may also be placed by downloading the order form, filling it out, and faxing it to Gene Tools, LLC. This order form is a PDF document.

  • Tariffs and Taxes
  • International customers will be responsible for tariffs and taxes imposed on each shipment by the customer's country. Customers will be billed directly by FedEx for said tariffs and taxes. For this reason, we request that international customers provide their FedEx Account Number when they place their order.

    In regard to tariffs and taxes, the Harmonized System # for our Morpholino oligos is: 2934.99.9000. This number corresponds to "Nucleic acids and their salts, whether or not chemically defined; Other heterocyclic compounds; Aromatic or modified aromatic; Other" and is used by all countries for assessing tariffs and taxes. To find out what tariffs and taxes will be imposed on your order you should contact your country's import agency and provide them with this Harmonized System number.
    While our and others experience indicate that Morpholino oligos typically outperform other antisense structural types by a wide margin, nonetheless, because of the great variability among genes and cells, Gene Tools makes no warranty as to the performance of either Gene Tools-designed or customer-selected Morpholino oligos in any given biological system.
