Custom Made Products
K•D Medical, unlike other companies who only resell, IS the source manufacturer. As such we can manufacture your molecular biology products in any size or formulation that you wish. We currently manufacture over 1,000 custom products, chances are that we may already make what you're looking for! We do require a minimum of 2 liters/4 packs for plates and 4 liters for liquid media.
There are no orders too small - we appreciate any business you give us. However, we do ask that for custom orders we make at least a two (2) liters/4 packs for plates and 4 liters liquid.
K•D Medical strives to provide you with the best possible product at the lowest possible price. We "shop" our competitors on a continual basis to insure that you get the best price. So if you find a comparable product at a better price - call us. We'll review the product and do our best to give you what you want at the price you want!
Simply put, we will meet or exceed your product quality requirements each and every time. Every production run undergoes rigorous in-coming, in-process, post-production and end of shelf-life quality testing which will be provided to you upon request. We will also perform any "custom quality control testing" you desire (e.g. test custom products with positive and negative growth strains). Our goal is "100% right 100% of the time!"
Once product has left the K•D Medical facility, whether for delivery via our trucks or by commercial carrier, it is subject to this Returned Goods policy. All items you wish to return must first receive a "Returned Goods Authorization" (RGA) number by calling Customer Service. A "Proper Storage" document will then be faxed for your signature assuring us that you have held the products in the necessary storage conditions. Once the Proper Storage document is received a "Will Call" shipping ticket will be issued. All returned goods will be charged a 35% restocking fee.
No problem! Let us know and we'll do our best to get you what you need, when you want it. Your research lab doesn't run only during business hours. We don't either, we're here for you!
K•D Medical is glad to provide you with any sample materials you may require to insure that our products meet your needs. Simply call Customer Service or your local sales representative.
Your satisfaction is our ultimate goal. We want your experience with K•D Medical to be so pleasant that you make us your preferred supplier of molecular biology products.
