6.5 Where the Products are handed to a carrier for carriage to the Buyer or to a United Kingdom port for export, any such carrier shall be deemed to be an agent of the Seller and not of the Buyer for the purposes of sections 44, 45 and 46 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979.
6.6 The Buyer agrees that section 32(3) of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 shall not apply to Products sent by the Seller.

7. Passing of title and risk
7.1 From the time of delivery in accordance with condition 6, the Products shall be at the Buyer's risk and the Buyer shall be solely responsible for their custody and maintenance but, unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing, legal and beneficial title to the Products shall remain the Seller's until all payments to be made by the Buyer under the Contract and any other contract between the Seller and the Buyer and on any other account whatsoever, have been made in full and unconditionally. Whilst the Seller retains legal and beneficial title to the Products, the Buyer shall:
(a) keep the Products labelled as belonging to the Seller and separate and identifiable from all other goods in its possession;
(b) hold the Products on a fiduciary basis as bailee for the Seller;
(c) insure the Products for their full replacement value with a reputable insurance company and ensure the Seller's interest is noted on the policy;
(d) if the Products are destroyed by an insured risk, hold the insurance proceeds separately from all other monies on trust for the Seller;
(e) ensure the Products remain in satisfactory condition;
(f) not create or purport to create any lien, charge or other encumbrance over or otherwise affecting the Products;
(g) notify the Seller immediately if the Buyer becomes subject to any of the events listed in condition 13; and
(h) immediately provide the Seller with such information relating to the Products as the Seller may require from time to time.
7.2 Where legal and beneficial title has not yet passed to the Buyer, the Buyer may only re-sell the Products to the Buyer's customers or incorporate Products into other goods in the ordinary course of the Buyer's business as a fiduciary and trustee for the Seller. In the event of any resale or incorporation by the Buyer of the Products, the Sellers' beneficial entitlement shall attach to the proceeds of sale or other disposition thereof so that such proceeds or any claim therefore shall be assigned to the Seller and, until such assignment, shall be held on trust in a separate identified account for the Seller by the Buyer and such proceeds shall not be mingled with other moneys or paid into any overdrawn bank account and shall at all times be identifiable as the Seller's moneys.
7.3 Where legal and beneficial title has not yet passed to the Buyer, without prejudice to the equitable rules as to tracing, in the event of failure to pay the price in accordance with the Contract the Seller shall have power to re-sell the Products, such power being addition to (and not in substitution for) any other power of sale arising by operation of law or implication or otherwise, and for such purpose the Buyer hereby grants the Seller and its servants and agents an irrevocable licence to enter upon any premises or land occupied, owned or controlled by the Buyer to remove the Products. The issue of a credit note in these circumstances will be evidence that the Contract has been cancelled and that the original sale in respect of which VAT would otherwise have been payable has not taken place.

8. Terms of payment
8.1 Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the Buyer shall pay for the Products in cash in Sterling within 30 days of the date on the Invoice. Payment shall become due in any event forthwith upon the occurrence of any of the events referred to in condition 13 below.
8.2 The price of the Products shall be due in full to the Seller in accordance with the Contract and the Buyer shall not be entitled to exercise any set-off, lien or any other similar right or claim. Whenever under the contract any sum of money shall be recoverable from or payable by the Buyer, the same may be deducted by the Seller from any sum then due or which at any time thereafter may become due to the Buyer under this or any other contract with the Seller (or any other member of the Lab M Holdings Limited group of companies from time to time). Exercise by the Seller of its rights under this Condition shall be without prejudice to any other rights or remedies available to the Seller under the Contract, or otherwise howsoever, at law or in equity.
8.3 The time of payment shall be of the essence of the Contract.
8.4 If the Buyer fails to make any payment due to the Seller under the Contract by the due date for payment, then the Seller may claim interest at its discretion under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998.

9.6 If the Buyer uses any Product in the production of biologicals it shall ensure that no traces of the Product remain in the resulting biologicals or other materials produced.

10.1 If the Products (other than Third Party Products) do not comply with condition 9.2, the Seller shall at its own discretion, either credit to the Buyer the full price paid by the Buyer to the Seller for such item, or repair it or supply a replacement thereof, free of charge, provided that in any case:

(ii) in the case of a latent defect, within 7 days of the date upon which such defect became, or ought reasonably to have become apparent;
