  5. Acceptance and Limitations.  Acceptance of this quotation must be made by filling out, signing, and returning to IS the Acceptance Copy attached hereto.  This quotation may only be accepted on the exact terms set forth herein, and shall not in any way be changed, limited, controlled or restricted by any verbal communications between Buyer, by any notation or alteration on this document, nor by the provisions on any of Buyer's forms, letters, or papers which are inconsistent herewith unless such provisions are specifically agreed to in writing by IS.

  6. Precursor.  The Buyer is required to supply the precursor(s) for the compound to be custom synthesized by IS.  Only chemically pure compounds should be submitted as precursors for custom synthesis.  The work to be done by IS is inherently risky, and Buyer’s property, including precursors, may be damaged or destroyed in the process of such work.   Buyer accepts and assumes this risk.  In the event that the precursor(s) is (are) destroyed in whole or in part during the custom synthesis, Buyer shall have no claims whatsoever, including claims for damages of any kind, against IS as a result of such destruction.

  7. Method Transferability.  Any quote based on a customer’s supplied method, and the price derived there from, is subject to the supplied method being repeatable and transferable to the laboratories of IsoSciences. IsoSciences expects results from the supplied procedure(s) that we observe to agree with those provided by the customer.  Should IsoSciences find that the results from the supplied method(s) are either wholly, or in part, not reproducible, then IsoSciences reserves the right to suspend work pending acceptance by the customer of additional charges for research and development costs.  The customer is liable for all work done up to the point of work being suspended. 

  8. Completion Date.  The date for completion of the custom synthesis is estimated from the later of the date of receipt of the signed Acceptance Copy or the date of receipt of the precursor by IS.  This date is an estimate and subject to change at IS’ discretion.  Whenever possible, IS will provide the Buyer with advance notice of such a change; however, IS shall have the right to change or delay that date for completion, and Buyer shall have no claims whatsoever, including claims for damages of any kind, against IS as a result of any such change.

  9. Cancellation.  It is understood by Buyer that IS may encounter unforeseen difficulties in the preparation and purification of goods which conform to the specifications and terms quoted herein.  In such event IS shall have the right to cancel this quotation, and the Buyer shall have no claims whatsoever, including claims for damages of any kind against IS as a result of such a cancellation. Whenever possible IS will offer the customer a modified quotation. 

  10. Limited Warranty.  IS warrants that, at the time of shipment, the products described herein or in a modification of this quotation are free from defects in material and workmanship and conform to the specifications which accompany the products.  Because the stability of a custom synthesized product is unknown, notification of any breach of warranty must be made to IS within 15 days of receipt of the product by Buyer, unless otherwise provided in writing by IS.  Buyer shall have no claim against IS whatsoever if Buyer fails to notify IS of a defect within fifteen (15) days after Buyer’s receipt of the product or within such other period as may be specified in writing by IS.   IS makes no other warranty of any kind, whether express or implied, as to the product, its fitness for purpose, its merchantability, as to IS’ performance, or otherwise.

Testing.  It is Buyer's responsibility to test the precursor(s) and/or the product for any risks to health or the environment associated therewith; take appropriate precautions to protect persons and the environment from such risks; enforce appropriate methods of research to minimize such risks; and implement safety assessments and procedures relative to the procurement, storage, use and disposal of the materials involved.   IS does not and will not have any responsibility for any such testing or research.

    3. shall and does hereby indemnify IS and hold it harmless against any losses, claims, damages, liabilities and expenses (including counsel fees and the cost of settlements reasonably incurred) arising out any claim, suit, or proceeding based on violation or alleged violation of the TSCA by any precursor supplied by Buyer or by any goods manufactured by IS in accordance with designs, processes or formulas supplied, specified or requested by Buyer.
