Terms and Conditions of participation in the promotion campaign of the LUTHOR Kits
1. Conditions of Participation:
LEXOGEN is organizing a promotion campaign for the kits and services in the LUTHOR product line (“LUTHOR”) which has the following conditions:
The first five applicants to the campaign, who have completed a (research) study by using LUTHOR-samples and published it in a peer-reviewed journal may receive a voucher worth up to EUR 10,000, if the following conditions have been met:
- The author/customer may apply for the promotion voucher once the study has been published in a peer-reviewed journal.
- The full name of the LUTHOR Kit, that has been used in the study, has to be mentioned in the section of the study that lists the methods and kits used. Such sections may be named as Materials and Methods, Methods, or Experiments and Results. This promotion applies on all kits from the LUTHOR product line.
- The applicant may also use LUTHOR Services provided by the LEXOGEN Services department, since the promotion applies for the LUTHOR products and LUTHOR Services. LUTHOR Services include library preparation with the LUTHOR kits, sequencing and data analysis.
2. Promotion voucher:
Each applicant may receive a voucher worth up from EUR 168.5 to EUR 10,000 whose value is calculated as set forth below. At the request of the applicant the value of the voucher may also be converted to USD by Lexogen based on the official exchange rate as published by the European Central Bank (ECB) on the date of conversion.
The given voucher may be used for future purchases in the LEXOGEN online web store only at any time.
In case an applicant has purchased a LUTHOR kit in the respective (research) study, the value of the voucher will depend on the price paid for the kit of the LUTHOR product line and the amount of preps, that have been used of it, for the study. The value of a prep is calculated from the total purchase price of the kit and the total number of preps contained therein. The value of a voucher shall never exceed the price it was purchased by applicant or in a total amount of EUR 10,000. For example, if the publication data was based on one (Cat. No. 143.24) LUTHOR 3’ mRNA-Seq Library Prep Kit for Illumina, including 24 preps, which was sold to a customer at its list price which is EUR 4,449 and all of the preps have been used, the applicant is eligible for the voucher with the value of EUR 4,449. If the applicant used for the publication (Cat. No. 143.96) LUTHOR 3’ mRNA-Seq Library Prep Kit for Illumina, including 96 preps, which was sold to the applicant at its list price, which is EUR 16,178, the applicant is only eligible for the voucher of EUR 10,000.
In case the applicant has used LUTHOR Services in the respective (research) study, the voucher value will be calculated based on the price paid for the LUTHOR Services to produce the data for the publication. The voucher value will cover the whole service but not more than EUR 10,000. For example, if the price of the LUTHOR Services project is EUR 7,000, the applicant will receive a voucher for the amount of EUR 7,000. If the price for the project is EUR 20,000, the applicant will receive a voucher with the value of EUR 10,000.
In case LUTHOR kits were offered as a service by a Next-Generation sequencing core facility, which is a laboratory specialized on analyzing RNA and DNA strains, the value of the voucher will then depend, on the basis of the price of the LUTHOR kit purchased from LEXOGEN by the Next-Generation Sequencing core facility and of the amount of preps used for generating the data for the publication. For example, if the facility purchased (Cat. No. 143.96) LUTHOR 3’ mRNA-Seq Library Prep Kit for Illumina, including 96 preps and paid a list price for this product of EUR 16,178 (EUR 168.5 per prep) but only 8 preps were used for the publication, the applicant will be eligible for the voucher with the value of EUR 1,348 (EUR 168.5 multiplied by 8).
A cash payment of the voucher value is not possible. In any case, the overall sum of all given vouchers in this promotion campaign shall not exceed a maximum amount worth up to EUR 50,000 in total.
The promotion starts on 10th December 2020 and ends on 31th of December 2022, or once five applicants, who have met the conditions of this promotion campaign, have applied for the voucher, informed LEXOGEN about their published articles and have replied in time (within 14 days), to the voucher-winning message.
All direct customers of LEXOGEN as well as customers of the LEXOGEN official distributors are entitled to participate in this promotion campaign. However, a maximum of one person per laboratory or company and only one person per study may apply.
In order to apply for a voucher, the applicant has to inform LEXOGEN about the publication of the article and provide the LUTHOR Kit or Service invoice via E-Mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org. With your application you agree to provide your information truthfully and as completely as possible.
This offer cannot be combined with any other present or future promotion offers or any other LEXOGEN discounts.
The recipients of a voucher will be chosen by a judging panel which will be made up of LEXOGEN employees only. The judging panel’ decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into. There is no legal remedy against the decision of the jury.
5. Winners announcement and allocation of vouchers:
Winning applicants will be informed via E-mail by LEXOGEN. Winners must respond within 14 days or an alternative winner may be chosen. The vouchers will be allocated on the basis of “first come first served principle”.
