What are the advantages of shipping PrimeTime® Gene Expression Master Mix at ambient temperature?

Eliminating shipping in insulated containers with gel packs and dry ice benefits you by:

  • Reducing shipping costs by 35–70%, depending on your location
  • Potentially shortening delivery times

Ambient temperature shipping also lessens detrimental environmental impacts by:

  • Eliminating manufacturing resources required for insulated containers, dry ice, and gel packs
  • Eliminating waste disposal of insulated containers or gel packs in landfills or incinerators
  • Decreasing transportation resources (e.g., fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions) due to decreased shipping weight
