Terms & Conditions


For your convenience, all catalogue prices are quoted in Canadian dollars and do not include the cost of transportation or any applicable taxes. These charges will be added to your invoice separately. Prices are FOB Newmarket, Ontario.

Price Change Policy

As our suppliers, at times, make significant price increases during the life of our catalogue, we must reserve the right to change prices without notice. The potential increase in import tariffs imposed by the US Government against products originated from China is another situation when cost increases are out of our control. Whenever possible, SPECTRUM/NASCO Canada will absorb small increases from suppliers and source from within Canada, however, if there is a large cost increase, we will notify you before filling your order. In the rare event of a typographical error, we reserve the right to charge at the correct price.


All applicable provincial taxes will be added to your order at the time of invoicing. GST (or HST) will be added to orders where applicable. For your reference, our GST number is R104958731.

Shipping Destinations

We can only ship orders within Canada. For international orders (outside Canada) please contact Nasco International at 1-920-563-2446.

Shipping Charges

Orders with shipping location in NT, YT, NU and air drop zones may be subject to additional shipping surcharges.

Some chemicals are subject to additional shipping costs due to a carrier's hazardous materials surcharge. Oversized products (extreme weight or bulk) are also subject to additional shipping charges.

Terms of Payment

For established accounts, terms are net 30 days from date of invoice. Interest is charged at the rate of 1.5% per month (18% per annum) on overdue accounts. Visa or MasterCard are accepted.

Shipments:  FOB Newmarket, Ontario, Canada

All orders will be shipped in the most economical manner (for parcels this is generally UPS Ground) unless otherwise specified by you the customer. Shipments will be FOB Newmarket, Ontario, and shipping & handling charges will be added to your invoice. A minimum $15.00 shipping charge will be applied to all orders, so we would encourage you to make sure your orders total more than $50 before shipping charges.

When Spectrum ships to your institution, arrangements normally include delivery to your building’s front door or loading dock. If the shipping company’s assistance is going to be required to carry the parcels further into your building, Spectrum must be informed in advance and the additional handing charges of the freight forwarder will apply.

Damaged Goods/Shortages
