Shipping & Return Policies


Domestic Shipping

Shipping from M2 Scientifics is calculated based on size and weight of each order. At checkout, simply add your delivery address and a shipping cost will be displayed. M2 Scientifics ships UPS ground, FOB origin, for all orders unless special requests are made. For orders that require LTL deliveries, M2 Scientific LLC will use the best method available. Orders typically ship within 1 - 3 business days. However, some orders may take longer depending on a manufacturer's policy. Some products are shipped direct from the manufacturer which may require additional lead times. Due to size and dimensional weight of larger products, those items may require shipment via freight. Additional costs may be required to fulfill the order. An account manager will contact you if additional fees are necessary to cover the cost of freight.

You will be notified by email once your order has shipped. You may check the status of your order along with your tracking number from your account by logging in at

Much of our lab supplies and equipment can be shipped anywhere in the world. International shipping, other than Canada, can not be calculated during checkout.
