In order to increase manufacturing output, a second, more manual kit packaging line which will use zip-lock bags vs. sealed peel pouches. Product may be received
in both the standard sealed peel-pouch as well as the new zip-lock format. Both formats will be made under the same product codes.

Due to extremely high demand and domestic shortages, Hardy Diagnostics is having product air freighted to the United States to accommodate demand. Going forward and until further notice, each case (300 tests) of 3C036NHL and 3C038NHL will have a non-negotiable $119.00 Air Freight Charge. The charge will only apply to the two part codes mentioned. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, however we’ve made this decision in order to meet the increase in demand for these products.
