How does Addgene ship plasmids?

Addgene ships plasmids as bacterial stabs (see at right) at room bacterial stab picturetemperature via UPS. Once your order ships, Addgene will send you a UPS tracking number that will allow you to track the shipment's progress. For locations in the US, orders are generally delivered in 1-3 business days from the ship date. For international locations, delivery ranges from 3-14 days from the ship date. Stabs are stable for up to 2 weeks in transit.

Non-US Customers: please visit our International Page for country specific shipping and customs information.
