Please email [email protected] or call Roos Instruments at 408.748.8589 (Monday - Friday 9 AM - 6 PM Pacific Time) to inquire about the status of your order.

Shipping Methods

Standard orders within the United States usually ship via UPS 2nd Day or FedEx 2 Day. All international orders ship via FedEx International Priority, DHL Express Worldwide or UPS Worldwide Express. If available, we will always use the most practical method of shipment. Please allow up to six weeks for delivery, although most orders are fulfilled within two weeks. Partial shipments are avoided for Standard orders.

Urgent orders allow you to idenitfy items that are mission critical or need to meet a tight timetable, so they are expedited through the allocation process.

Please allow up to 1 week for delivery, although we will ship next day if possible. All International orders will be shipped via UPS Worldwide.

What is an OpenPO?

An OpenPO is a purchase order, arranged ahead of time with Roos Instruments, specifically designed to allow authorized poeple to purchase RI Kits against a set limit. Think of it as a credit line that Roos Instruments issues invoices against. The OpenPO can also be arranged to work with your organization's accounting system by specifying buying agent information or a reference number (i.e. authorization code or employee badge number). Your company will be invoiced according to the terms of the OpenPO; payment is due within 30 days of shipment. If you would like to establish an OpenPO, please contact RI sales representative in your region.
