- PRICES, TAX, DELIVERY CHARGES
AllCells may change pricing for products and services at any time without notice. AllCells reserves the right to cancel any Order placed based on incorrect pricing or availability information.For clinical grade Products, pricing is subject to the terms stipulated and agreed upon in the Supply Agreement.Sales tax will be included where applicable. If any federal, state, or local tax currently or in the future is levied on AllCells in a jurisdiction where AllCells or Customer does business, and such tax relates to the Products or business transactions, AllCells reserves the right to adjust the net cost of the Products or separately invoice the applicable tax liability in such jurisdiction.
The Customer shall be responsible for all delivery charges and related costs, including shipping & handling, upon delivery of Products as indicated on the Order or invoice, as applicable, on a per shipment basis. Shipping & handling charges may vary according to the weight of the package and shipping options.
- ORDER FULFILLMENT POLICIES
AllCells reserves the right to refuse service to anyone. Quotes are not binding upon either party until AllCells delivers the final sales order to Customer. AllCells’ issuance of a sales order shall represent the Customer’s irrevocable commitment to pay for such Order. AllCells will not schedule any collection or ship any Order until guarantee of payment is provided.Customer acknowledges that there are lead times associated with the collection, processing and fulfillment of Orders. At all times, AllCells may, in its sole discretion, change or modify conditions of product collection, processing, manufacturing, packaging or labeling without providing notice to Customer, unless specific processing requirements are part of a sales order, or a separate valid, written, executed agreement between Customer and AllCells.For clinical grade Products, Customer acknowledges that there are minimum lead times associated with the scheduling, collection, processing and fulfillment of Orders. Any requests by Customer for changes or modifications of conditions of donor requirements, collection, processing, manufacturing, packaging or labeling will be considered changes to the product description and must be managed in accordance with the terms of the Quality Agreement.
Customers may request a specific donor for an Order. AllCells cannot guarantee that a requested donor will be available. In the event that a research grade Product Order cannot be fulfilled with the requested donor due to lack of availability, AllCells will use commercially reasonable efforts to find a substitute that meets Customer’s requirements. Customer may be billed for additional costs incurred for scheduling a specific donor or costs incurred leading up to the collection of Product from said donor. Customer may be eligible to receive a refund for any prepaid reservation fees if the requested donor is unavailable. For clinical grade Products, unavailability or ineligibility of requested donor will result in the use of the back-up donor. Back-up donor unavailability or ineligibility will result in the rescheduling of Product delivery, subject to standard lead times.
AllCells is not liable for incomplete Orders caused by unforeseeable circumstances beyond AllCells’ control. Circumstances beyond AllCells’ control may include acts of God, third-party labor strikes, industrial disturbances, systemic electrical, telecommunications, or other utility failures, earthquakes, storms, or other elements of nature, blockages, embargoes, riots, acts or orders of government, acts of terrorism, or war (a “Force Majeure Event”) or donor collection and processing issues. If a Force Majeure Event precludes AllCells’ from providing the Products for more than sixty (60) days, the Customer may have the option to reschedule any affected Orders or receive a refund for any prepaid Products that were not delivered thereunder. In the event that AllCells is unable to fulfill an order due to donor or collection issues, AllCells will promptly notify Customer of such circumstances. Customer and AllCells will work together in good faith within thirty (30) days to agree to reschedule or modify the Order or resolve payment or credit arrangements, as applicable, for any unfulfilled Orders. A refund or partial refund from AllCells for any or prepayments for the terminated portion of the Order is the sole and exclusive remedy for AllCells’ inability to fulfill or an Order due to a Force Majeure Event or donor collection issues.
- CHANGE ORDERS, CANCELLATION, and CHANGE FEES
Once AllCells has issued a sales order, any subsequent requests by Customer to change, modify or cancel such Order will be deemed a Change Order. A “Change Order” includes, without limitation, any of the following Customer requests to: cancel an Order, reschedule, modify donor specifications, expand donor testing prior to original collection date, collection volume, collection date/time, collection requirements, processing requirements, Product Specifications, packaging, labeling, or shipping. Each Change Order will be subject to a separate minimum fee of no less than twenty percent (20%) of the original Order amount (the “Change Fee”). The Change Fee for cancellations is one-hundred percent (100%) of the Order.Customer agrees to pay in full, without warranty or requirement to meet any release criteria or standard quality attribute for Custom products. Custom products are any products that are processed in accordance with the Customer’s specific requirements that are materially different from AllCells’ standard processing and have the potential to impact the quality of the product.All Change Orders must be requested in writing and approved in writing by AllCells. AllCells does not guarantee that Change Orders can be accommodated. In some cases, a new Quote and Order may be required, including the corresponding Change Fee(s). For all clinical grade Products, change management requirements are also subject to the terms of the Quality Agreement.

International research grade Product Orders are shipped using the Customer’s carrier account only. Clinical grade Product Orders shipments are based on the mutually agreed upon requirements in the Statement of Work. All international couriers utilized by Customers must include an after-hours contact name and phone number for the end-user Customer. Title to Products transfers to Customer when AllCells delivers the Products package to the Customer’s carrier (Incoterms 2018 EXW ExWorks).Customer acknowledges and agrees that any risk of damage or loss to the Products is transferred to the Customer, carrier or shipping agent, as applicable, once the carrier takes receipt of the Products.

Invoices not paid within the designated terms are subject to a ten percent (10%) late fee of the initial balance and a 1.5% per month (18% per annum) interest fee.

Customer’s failure to make payment within sixty (60) days of the payment due date will result in credit-hold. Customer’s failure to make a payment within one hundred and twenty (120) days of the due date will result in legal action and collection proceedings without further warning.
