Handling Advice

Products are supplied for laboratory use only, and not for therapeutic, household or other uses. The absence of a hazard warning should not be taken to constitute an indication of safety. Our products are intended for use by suitably qualified professional people, who will safely handle and dispose of the products under current HSE and COSHH guidelines. Please note that unsuitable handling and storage of these materials of biological origin can result in new hazards beyond any present when the product was shipped, including microbiological growth.

Samples & Reservations

We offer free evaluation samples of many bio-reagents. We also operate a reserved lot system with samples of individual batches of product: each reserve is allocated a reserve number and is held for a quoted period of time.


We quote for individual products, and discounts are often possible on larger quantities. Unless stated, the cost of shipping and VAT is in addition to the product cost. Unless otherwise stated, quotations are valid for 30 days.

Custom Manufacture

If the bio-reagent you want is not listed below, it may be available none-the-less. We are also pleased to discuss individual requirements and custom manufacture. Species, country of origin and process method can often be tailored to your particular requirement. Just ask!

Primary Recycling

We directly reuse cardboard and polystyrene packaging materials when ever possible without compromising the product in transit.

Return of Products

If you wish to return goods for whatever reason, please contact First Link to obtain a Return Authorization, as no unanticipated deliveries are accepted. A brief written explanation of the reason for the return is required for Quality Assurance purposes.
