(b) Trademarks. (i) Affymetrix hereby grants to Caliper a nonexclusive, royalty-free license to use and display any of its corporate names, service marks, logos or trademarks (whether or not registered) (the "AFFYMETRIX TRADEMARKS") solely for the purpose of displaying, in the manner agreed upon by Affymetrix, the Affymetrix Trademarks on Caliper's web site in connection with the promotion of the Initial Developed Products and the provision of one or more hyperlinks to the mutually agreed upon page or pages of any of Affymetrix web sites. (ii) Caliper hereby grants to Affymetrix a nonexclusive, royalty-free license to use and display any of its corporate names, service marks, logos or trademarks (whether or not registered) (the "CALIPER TRADEMARKS") in connection with the marketing and promotion of Initial Developed Products solely in compliance with the terms and conditions of the marketing and sales program developed pursuant to this Section 5.24. (iii) Each Party (the "TRADEMARK LICENSEE") acknowledges that the Party licensing its trademarks (the "TRADEMARK LICENSOR") exclusively owns the Trademark Licensor's licensed names, service marks, logos and trademarks referenced above (the "LICENSOR MARKS") and that use of any of any such Licensor Marks by Trademark Licensee shall inure to the sole benefit of Trademark Licensor. Trademark Licensee shall not do or suffer to be done any act or thing inconsistent with such ownership and shall not acquire or claim or assist third parties in acquiring or claiming any title in or to any Licensor Mark by virtue of this Agreement or through Trademark Licensee's use of any Licensor Mark.

Each Party shall provide the other with all relevant information required for the marketing and sales of the Initial Developed Products, including appropriate technical and marketing materials, in a timely and cooperative manner consistent with the schedule set forth on Exhibit L and in any event not less favorable than the manner in which each Party provides its own marketing and sales personnel with similar information. Each Party will bear the full cost for the development and production of the technical and marketing materials relating to its own product(s) and both Parties agree to label such technical and marketing materials relating to the interrelationship between the Initial Developed Products and Affymetrix products with appropriate branding and trademarks of each other's Party as mutually agreed by the Parties pursuant to this Agreement; in the event of co-branded literature relating equally to both Party's products, the Parties shall share the cost for development and production of such materials as determined by the Steering Committee.

Each Party shall retain the other Party's Confidential Information in the strictest confidence (on a need to know basis) and shall not disclose such Confidential Information to any person without the other Party's express written consent, other than to an employee, agent or professional advisor of the receiving Party under a duty of confidentiality not less than that required of the Parties herein. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, the obligation to maintain the confidentiality of Confidential Information shall not apply to the extent that the receiving Party is required to disclose such Confidential Information pursuant to law or legally enforceable order of a court or judicial body; provided that the receiving Party provides notice to the disclosing Party as soon as possible to enable the disclosing Party to seek a protective order or an injunction.

ARTICLE 8 TERM AND TERMINATION Section 8.01 Term. This Agreement shall commence as of the Effective Date and shall continue in force for a period of [ * ] after the Final Acceptance Date (the "INITIAL TERM"). Affymetrix may elect to renew this Agreement for an additional [ * ] renewal term ("RENEWAL TERM") by providing Caliper with written notice ("RENEWAL NOTICE") of such election at least [ * ] prior to expiration of the Initial Term (the Initial Term and Renewal Terms being, collectively, the "TERM").

All rights and licenses granted under this Agreement are deemed to be, for purposes of Section 365(n) of the United States Bankruptcy Code, license or rights to "intellectual property" as defined by Section 101(56) of the United States Bankruptcy Code, and the Parties will retain and may fully exercise all of their rights and licenses under this Agreement. The Parties agree to relief from automatic stay provisions under Section 362 of the Bankruptcy Code. Section 8.04 Remedies. The right of either Party to terminate under the provisions of this Section 8 will not be an exclusive remedy, and either Party will be entitled, if the circumstances warrant, alternatively or cumulatively, to seek damages for breach of this Agreement, to seek an order requiring performance of the obligations of this Agreement, or to seek any other remedy available in law or equity including but not limited to injunctive relief. Section 8.05 Survival of Work Plans. Upon the expiration or termination of this Agreement, the duties and obligations of the Parties hereunder under any Work Plan for a particular Project shall likewise expire or terminate, unless (i) such Work Plan by its express terms survives the expiration or termination of this Agreement or (ii) the Parties mutually agree that such Work Plan shall survive such expiration or termination of this Agreement in certain respects. Section 8.06 Survival. The following provisions shall survive termination or expiration of this Agreement and, in the case of the expiration or termination of any Work Plan prior to the termination of this Agreement, shall survive with respect to any such expired or terminated Work Plan: Articles 1, 3, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10, Sections 2.03 and 2.04 and, to the extent that [ * ] ARTICLE 9 INDEMNIFICATION Section 9.01 Indemnification. (a) Caliper hereby agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Affymetrix and its affiliates, agents, directors, officers and employees (the "AFFYMETRIX INDEMNITEES") from and against any and all liabilities, costs, fees, expenses and/or losses, including without limitation reasonable legal costs, expenses and attorneys' fees for outside counsel (collectively, "LOSSES") resulting from any third party claims, suits, actions or demands arising out of (i) any of Caliper's representations and warranties set forth in this Agreement being untrue in any material respect when made; (ii) any material breach or material default by Caliper of its covenants and obligations under this Agreement; and/or (iii) a claim by such third party that any Caliper Technology, or any portion thereof, when used in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, infringes on or constitutes a misappropriation of any Intellectual Property Rights of a third party. (b) Affymetrix hereby agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Caliper and its Affiliates, agents, directors, officers and employees (the "CALIPER INDEMNITEES") from and against any and all Losses resulting from any third party claims, suits, actions or demands arising out of (i) any of Affymetrix' representations and warranties set forth in this Agreement being untrue in any material respect when made; (ii) any material breach or material default by Affymetrix of its covenants and obligations under this Agreement; and/or (iii) a claim by such third party that any Affymetrix Technology, or any portion thereof, when used in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, infringes on or constitutes a misappropriation of any Intellectual Property Rights of a third party. Section 9.02 Indemnification Procedures. To be eligible to be so indemnified as described in Section 9.01, the indemnified Party shall provide the indemnifying Party with prompt notice of any claims, suits, actions or demands (with a description of the claim and the nature and amount of any such Loss) giving rise to the indemnification obligation pursuant to Section 9.01 and the exclusive ability to defend such claims, suits, actions or demands (with the reasonable cooperation of indemnified Party). The indemnified Party shall have the right to retain its own counsel, at its own expense, if representation of the counsel of the indemnifying Party would be inappropriate due to actual or potential differing interests between the Parties. Neither Party shall settle or consent to the entry of any judgment with respect to any claim for Loss for which indemnification is sought, without the prior written consent of the other Party (not to be unreasonably withheld). ARTICLE 10 MISCELLANEOUS Section 10.01 LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT THAT LIABILITY ARISES FROM A BREACH BY EITHER PARTY OF ITS CONFIDENTIALITY OBLIGATIONS SET FORTH IN SECTION 6, IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE HEREUNDER (WHETHER IN AN ACTION IN NEGLIGENCE, CONTRACT OR TORT OR BASED ON A WARRANTY OR OTHERWISE) FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, REVENUE, OR LOSS OR INACCURACY OF DATA, OR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES INCURRED BY THE OTHER PARTY OR ANY THIRD PARTY, EVEN IF THE PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. Section 10.02 Dispute Resolution. (a) Informal Resolution. (i) The Parties recognize that disputes as to certain matters may from time to time arise during the term of this Agreement which relate to either Party's rights and or obligations. It is the objective of the Parties to establish procedures to facilitate the resolution of disputes arising under this Agreement in an expedient manner by mutual cooperation and without resort to litigation, if possible. To accomplish this objective, the Parties agree to follow the procedures set forth in Section 2.02(b) above and this Section 10.02 if and when an issue or dispute arises under this Agreement. (ii) If the Steering Committee is unable to resolve any issue or dispute arising within its authority (or referred to it pursuant to Section 2.02(b) above) under the terms of this Agreement within thirty (30) calendar days thereof, or upon any other dispute or issue regarding a Party's rights or obligations under this Agreement, any Party may, by written notice to the other, have such dispute or issue referred to their respective chief executive officers, for attempted resolution by good faith negotiations. (iii) Upon such referral of an issue or dispute for resolution, such designated officers shall meet promptly thereafter and shall use good faith efforts to attempt to resolve such dispute or issue. (b) Formal Resolution. (i) Any unresolved dispute or issue shall be resolved by binding arbitration under 35 U.S.C. 294. The Parties agree that under 35 U.S.C. 294(c), in the event a patent which is the subject of an arbitration award is subsequently determined to be invalid or unenforceable by a court or governmental body of competent jurisdiction from which no appeal can or has been taken such arbitration award may be modified by any court of competent jurisdiction upon application by a party to the arbitration. Whenever a Party shall decide to institute arbitration proceedings, it shall give written notice to that effect to the other Party. The Party giving such notice shall refrain from instituting the arbitration proceedings for a period of ten (10) calendar days following such notice to allow the Parties to attempt to resolve the dispute between themselves. If the Parties are still unable to resolve the dispute, the Party giving notice may institute the arbitration proceeding before JAMS or its successor pursuant to the United States Arbitration Act 9 U.S.C. Section 1 et seq. Arbitration shall be held in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. The arbitration shall be conducted in accordance with the provisions of JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures before a single arbitrator mutually chosen by the Parties, but if the Parties have not agreed upon a single arbitrator within fifteen (15) calendar days after notice of the institution of the arbitration, then a single arbitrator shall be chosen under JAMS rules from neutrals who have experience trying complex commercial dispute cases. All arbitrator(s) eligible to conduct the arbitration must undertake in writing as a condition of service to render their opinion(s) promptly after the final arbitration hearing and to provide a reasoned written opinion setting forth the findings of fact and conclusions of law. No arbitrator shall have the power to award punitive damages or any award of multiple damages under this Agreement and such awards are expressly prohibited. Judgment on the award of the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court in the County of Santa Clara, California. Except to the extent entry of judgment and any subsequent enforcement may require disclosure, or except as required by law, all matters relating to the arbitration, including the award, shall be held in confidence by the Parties. (ii) This Agreement shall be governed, construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without reference to conflict of laws principles. Each of the Parties hereto consents to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California and to any state court located in such district in the event that any dispute arises out of this Agreement, agrees that such Party will not attempt to deny or defeat such personal jurisdiction by motion or other request for leave from any such court, and agrees that such Party will not bring any action relating to this Agreement in any court other than the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California or a state court located in such district. (c) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, the Parties may seek an injunction or injunctions to prevent breaches of this Agreement and to enforce specifically the terms thereof in any court of the United States or any state thereof having jurisdiction, this being in addition to any other remedy to which they may be entitled at law or equity. Section 10.03 Non-solicitation. The Parties acknowledge and agree that each Party's employees and consultants are a valuable asset and are difficult to replace. Accordingly, each Party agrees that, during the Term and for a period of [ * ] thereafter, it will not knowingly offer employment as an employee, independent contractor, or consultant to the other Party's employees, independent contractors, or consultants. The Parties agree that the foregoing shall not be deemed to prohibit either Party from making a general, public solicitation of employment in the ordinary course of such Party's business, provided that such solicitation is not directed specifically to employees of the other Party. Section 10.04 Assignment. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, neither this Agreement nor any rights under this Agreement may be assigned or otherwise transferred by either Party, in whole or in part, whether voluntarily or by operation of law, including by way of sale of assets, merger or consolidation or other similar transaction, without the prior written consent of the other Party, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld; provided, however, that (i) Affymetrix may, without Caliper's consent, assign this Agreement or any of its rights or obligations hereunder to (a) an affiliate of Affymetrix or (b) a person, other than an Affymetrix Disqualified Assignee, that is a successor to substantially all of the assets of Affymetrix (whether by way of sale of assets, merger or consolidation or other similar transaction), in each case who executes a written agreement of assumption by which it agrees to be bound hereby, provided that Affymetrix shall not be relieved of its obligations hereunder in connection with any such assignment, and (ii) Caliper may, without Affymetrix' consent, assign this Agreement or any of its rights or obligations hereunder to a person, other than a Caliper Disqualified Assignee, that is a successor to substantially all of the assets of Caliper (whether by way of sale of assets, merger or consolidation or other similar transaction) who executes a written agreement of assumption by which it agrees to be bound hereby, provided that Caliper shall not be relieved of its obligations hereunder in connection with any such assignment. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the Parties and their respective successors and assigns; and provided further, however, that in connection with any assignment by Affymetrix of this Agreement or any of its rights or obligations hereunder without Caliper's consent, Caliper shall have the right to terminate any Work Plan for any Project with respect to which the Project Acceptance Date shall not have occurred on or prior to the date of such assignment (for purposes of clarification, Caliper shall, under such circumstances, have no right to terminate any of its obligations under this Agreement relating to the manufacture and sale of any Initial Developed Product, under Article 5 or otherwise, with respect to which the Acceptance Date shall have occurred on or prior to the date of such assignment). For purposes of this Section 10.04, (i) an "AFFYMETRIX DISQUALIFIED ASSIGNEE" shall be any person or entity that [ * ] , and (ii) a "CALIPER DISQUALIFIED ASSIGNEE" shall be any person or entity that [ * ] . Section 10.05 Independent Contractors. The relationship of the Parties established by this Agreement is that of independent contractors, and nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed or implied to give either Party the power to direct or control the day-to-day activities of the other, nor shall any Party have the right or authority to assume, create or incur any third party liability or obligation of any kind, express or implied, against or in the name of or on behalf of another except as expressly set forth in this Agreement. Section 10.06 Severability. In the event that any provision of this Agreement conflicts with governing law or if any provision is held to be null, void or otherwise ineffective or invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, (a) such provision shall be deemed to be restated to reflect as nearly as possible the original intentions of the Parties in accordance with applicable law, and (b) the remaining terms, provisions, covenants and restrictions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect. This Agreement has been negotiated by the Parties and their respective counsel and will be interpreted fairly in accordance with its terms and without any strict construction in favor of or against either Party. Section 10.07 Entire Agreement. This Agreement is an integrated document and all attachments hereto and incorporated herein constitute the entire, final, complete and exclusive agreement between the Parties and supersede all previous agreements, intentions, or representations, oral or written, relating to this Agreement. This Agreement may not be modified or amended except in a writing signed by a duly authorized representative of each Party. Both Parties acknowledge having read the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement and all attachments hereto, understand all terms and conditions, and agree to be bound hereby. Section 10.08 No Waiver. The failure of either Party to enforce at any time any of the provisions of this Agreement shall not be deemed to be a waiver of the right of either Party thereafter to enforce any such provisions. Section 10.09 Force Majeure. If either Party is prevented from performing any of its obligations hereunder due to strike, fire, flood, governmental act or order or restriction, or act of God, or any other reason where failure to perform is beyond the control and not caused by the negligence of the non-performing Party (a "FORCE MAJEURE EVENT"), such non-performing Party shall not be liable for breach of this Agreement with respect to such non-performance to the extent any such non-performance is due to a Force Majeure Event. Such non-performance shall be excused until the termination of such Force Majeure Event, provided that the non-performing Party gives immediate written notice to the other Party of the Force Majeure Event. Such non-performing Party shall exercise all reasonable efforts to eliminate the Force Majeure Event and to resume performance of its affected obligations as soon as practicable. Neither Caliper nor Affymetrix shall be entitled to rely on a Force Majeure Event to relieve it from an obligation to pay money (including any interest for delayed payment) that would otherwise be due and payable under this Agreement (save to the extent that payment of the same cannot be made by reason of bank strike or similar occurrence). Section 10.10 Notices. Any notice required or permitted under the terms of this Agreement or required by law must be in writing and must be (a) delivered in person; (b) sent by first class registered mail, or air mail, as appropriate; or (c) sent by overnight air courier, in each case properly posted to the appropriate address set forth in the introduction paragraph to this Agreement. Either Party may change its address for notice by notice to the other Party given in accordance with this Section 10.10. All such notices shall be deemed received on the date of receipt thereof if received prior to 5 p.m. in the place of receipt and such day is a business day in the place of receipt. Otherwise, any such notice shall be deemed not to have been received until the next succeeding business day in the place of receipt. Except as explicitly provided in this Agreement, notices may not be sent by email. Section 10.11 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which so executed will be deemed to be an original and such counterparts together will constitute one and the same agreement.

EXHIBIT H ZYMARK SCICLONE PRODUCT FACTORY WARRANTY Zymark warrants your Zymark manufactured equipment, including hardware, software, and firmware, and the Zymark purchased controller (if applicable), against defects in material and workmanship for a period of one (1) year from the date of shipment. WHAT IS INCLUDED - - On site service is provided during normal business hours, your local time from 8AM through 5PM, excluding holidays. A Zymark representative will make his/her best effort to be on site within three business days. - - Unlimited emergency on site repair services, parts, and software corrections that affect original functional design specifications, and their associated labor and travel expenses. - - Unlimited access to Zymark's Technical Support Center during the warranty period, which provides troubleshooting, repair instruction, service dispatching, replacement part information, and shipment. - - One pre-scheduled on site Preventive Maintenance and Diagnostic Servicing (PM) performed by a Zymark Field Service Engineer. A PM visit includes the replacement of Limited-Life parts exposed to fluidics, such as syringes, valves, seals, and fittings. The Zymark Field Service Engineer will perform a comprehensive analysis and testing to confirm the equipment is left operating to factory specifications. - - Scheduling of the PM within the warranty period is flexible and determined by the customer after notification by the Zymark Field Service Engineer. The servicing is typically scheduled six months after the equipment installation, but equipment usage rate and availability may cause the date to vary. A completed Zymark Field Service Report provides thorough documentation of all maintenance and service work performed by the Zymark Field Service Engineer during the on site visit. (Exception: Documentation is not provided when Zymark provides service via telephone, fax, or modem.) - - Limited-Life parts are covered for thirty (30) days after installation and are replaced once during the PM. See description of Limited Life Parts later in this warranty. - - Cosmetic surfaces are warranted for thirty (30) days from date of installation. Customers MUST use the Zymark-purchased controller. If customers fail to use Zymark's controller, field service charges incurred during the workstation installation process will be charged at Zymark's current rates. These charges include round-trip travel and on site installation time, transportation expenses, and per them living expenses. Any defects covered by this warranty shall be corrected by replacing or repairing the affected item, at Zymark's option. Parts replaced during the warranty period will be covered for the remaining term of the original warranty, or for thirty (30) days from time of replacement, whichever is longer. Such replacement parts may, at Zymark's option, be new or remanufactured. All parts removed from war ranted equipment become the property of Zymark Corporation. Zymark reserves the right to satisfy its warranty obligations in full by refunding the purchase price minus any service, validation, or travel charges of any defective product. CUSTOMER RESPONSIBILITIES - - The equipment must be used under normal installation and application conditions as described in the User's Manual. - - The equipment must be maintained as described in the User's Manual. - - Reasonable precautions should be taken to keep caustic atmospheric conditions, chemical spills, and biological and radioactive contamination from rendering the equipment irreparable, which would void this warranty. See the Hazardous Limitation Statement for further details. - - Zymark Automation Certified Disposables are required for proper operation of all applicable products. - - The customer is responsible for making the equipment available for a PM during the warranty period. Zymark will not be held liable for a missed PM due to restricted access to the equipment during the coverage period. - - When Zymark provides telephone, fax, or modem support, the customer is responsible for completing any necessary documentation of the service. - - If the customer maintains a change control/validation logbook as a permanent record, then he/she is responsible for entering all service documentation into this log. - - Customers must perform the appropriate level of revalidation required as a result of maintenance or service provided. - - Data back up is the responsibility of the customer. Zymark will not be held liable for loss of data due to failure of the PC (controller) hardware or software. - - Customer will make the equipment available for emergency and preventative maintenance servicing upon arrival of a Zymark Field Service Engineer. EXCLUSIONS ANY ALTERATION OF THE HARDWARE OR SOFTWARE ON ZYMARK PRODUCTS COVERED UNDER THIS WARRANTY, THAT ARE NOT PERFORMED BY ZYMARK CORPORATION OR AN APPROVED ZYMARK VENDOR, WILL VOID THIS WARRANTY. - - Product that has been subject to misuse, accident, negligence or improper transportation, handling, installation, storage, use, maintenance, or application is not covered under this warranty. - - The Sciclone 384-channel low volume head is warranted for one (1) year or 750,000 aspirate or dispense movements, whichever comes first. - - The Sciclone 100nL head is warranted for one (1) year or 600,000 aspirate or dispense movements, whichever comes first. - - Zymark Automated Certified Disposables are required for proper operation. Repair services required for inaccurate operation, accuracy, or precision due to the use of non-Zymark Automated Certified Disposables will void this warranty and be invoiced at Zymark's current field service rates. - - This warranty is intended to cover equipment manufactured by Zymark. Equipment purchased from other vendors is not covered by this warranty. - - Zymark will provide service for Zymark supported software and hardware platforms only. A Zymark representative has the right to remove any unsupported software from the controller when troubleshooting to eliminate any possible software conflicts it may have on Zymark equipment. Service due to unsupported software loaded on the controller will be invoiced at Zymark's current field service rates. - - Limited-Life parts are covered for thirty (30) days after installation and are replaced once during the PM. Beyond this replacement, these parts are available at current list prices and are designed for replacement by the customer. See the description of Limited-Life Parts below. - - Damage to Limited-Life parts caused by insufficient maintenance or cleaning practices, or abnormal applications are not covered under this contract. If these situations are diagnosed, charges are at current list prices for parts and current service rate structure for labor and travel. - - Application and chemistry support is not included. - - Software releases that contain new product features and functionality are offered for sale by Zymark and are not included under this program. - - This warranty applies only to the original users and delivery locations. It is not transferable to other users or locations without pre-approval from Zymark. LIMITED-LIFE PARTS Limited-Life Parts are any parts that are exposed to solvents, reagents, or samples. Such parts include, but are not limited to: syringes, valves, seals, and fittings. These parts are warranted to be functional at the time of installation and are covered for thirty (30) days after installation. Limited Life Parts are routinely replaced by Zymark Field Service Engineers during a PM visit or during Zymark Repair Depot servicing. Otherwise, these parts are available from Zymark at current list prices and are designed for replacement by the customer. REPAIR AUTHORIZATION In servicing situations requiring the return of equipment to Zymark, equipment must be returned to Hopkinton, MA, USA, or a facility designated by Zymark. The customer shall prepay charges for equipment returned to Zymark, with Zymark paying for equivalent return shipment to the customer. A Returned Material Authorization (RMA) must be obtained for any equipment being returned to Zymark. Contact the Zymark Technical Support Center by telephone at (508) 435-9761 or via the Internet at techsupport@zymark.com or by fax at (508) 435-0950 before returning any equipment to Zymark. Additionally, customers are required to complete a Zymark Chemical Questionnaire prior to the issuance of an RMA. All equipment returned to Zymark must first be decontaminated to meet Zymark and United States Department of Transportation procedures and standards. These procedures provide for the safety of Zymark receiving and repair personnel. HAZARDOUS LIMITATION STATEMENT AT NO TIME WILL ZYMARK PERSONNEL PERFORM SERVICE ON UNSAFE EQUIPMENT, PERFORM SERVICE IN UNSAFE ENVIRONMENTS, OR DECONTAMINATE EQUIPMENT TO MAKE IT SAFE. ZYMARK IS NOT LICENSED TO ACCEPT PRODUCTS THAT HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO RADIOACTIVE MATERIALS. Prior to the performance of any service work, Zymark personnel will evaluate the condition of the equipment and the environment in which the equipment is located. After evaluation and discussion with the customer, Zymark commits to the following: - - When the environment and equipment are determined to be free of chemical, radioactive and bio-hazardous materials by Zymark personnel, servicing will be performed. - - When the equipment and/or the environment are determined to be hazardous by Zymark personnel, Zymark reserves the right to refuse servicing the equipment. One of two situations will then occur: 1) The customer will decontaminate the equipment and/or the environment in which the equipment is located to the satisfaction of Zymark personnel, prior to Zymark servicing. 2) The customer decides not to decontaminate the equipment and/or the environment, and takes responsibility to service the equipment themselves through on site, verbal instruction from Zymark personnel. PARTS AVAILABILITY AND ON-GOING SUPPORT Zymark provides support for its products for a period of five (5) years after a product is no longer available for purchase.

THIS INCLUDES, BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO, THE PRODUCT'S CONDITION, ITS CONFORMITY TO ANY DESCRIPTION OR REPRESENTATION, THE EXISTENCE OF ANY LATENT OR PATENT DEFECTS, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. IN NO EVENT WILL ZYMARK BE LIABLE, WHETHER ARISING IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, FOR ANY LOSS OF PROFIT OR ANY OTHER COMMERCIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR OTHER. IN NO EVENT SHALL ZYMARK'S LIABILITY EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCT. EXHIBIT I (There was no Exhibit I attached to the final signature document.)
