Ordering

Ordering Info for Diagnostics

1. Complete K2 form

2. Look at pricing/kit info

3. Last step to place order

4. How to pay

 

Please understand that our tests are assembled by hand.  We are not a warehouse.  We use volunteers to keep our costs as low as possible.  Placing your order as far in advance as possible will help us get your order out in a timely fashion.  Thank you.

 

1. Science with a Mission diagnostics are not for use inside the United States or its territories. So the first thing you must do if you wish to place an order, is to complete the K2 form which states that you will not use any tests we sell to you inside the US. Put your contact info on the top of page one, then sign and date the bottom (right side) of page two.  Completed form can be mailed (not faxed or scanned) to us at:

 

Science with a Mission

602 Massapoag Ave.

Sharon, MA 02067

 

2. In addition to the cost for the diagnostics, you are responsible for the cost of shipping. Most often the tests are shipped to someone in the states who will be traveling to the end-use country.  We can ship by US postal mail or UPS. Please understand that SMI is not responsible for the shipping and cannot provide a shipping cost until after the tests have actually been sent and an exact cost is known. We do not add any handling fees or extra charges.

Kits do not include lancets. Single-use, spring-loaded safety lancets are available for 20 cents each. The depth of our lancets is 2mm, so if the people you will be testing have thick, leathery skin…our lancets may not be appropriate.

If the people you serve have thick blood (due to dehydration or other factors) you may wish to purchase additional transfer pipettes. They cost 7 cents each.

Tests available: (click on the test, for pricing information)

HIV 1/2
Malaria
Typhoid
Hepatitis B
Hepatitis C
Chlamydia
Gonorrhea
Syphilis

Our HIV diagnostics are sold in kits containing 30 tests, 30 transfer pipettes, and sufficient buffer for 30 tests. The cost is $1 per test, and you must order an increment of 30, so 90 tests would cost $90. You may request the tests to be individually packaged or in 10-packs. The 10-packs are most appropriate for someone ordering a large number (300 or more) of tests. Ten cassettes are contained in a heat-sealed pouch, which also has a Ziploc-style closure. Once you tear open the heat seal, and open the Ziploc, you can remove as many tests are you need. Then re-close the pouch with the Ziploc closure. This method of packaging takes up much less room for traveling and results in far less trash to throw away when all cassettes have been used. However, if you will be using only 1 or 2 tests per day, you should purchase the individually packaged tests.
