In addition to the antisera, calibrator, and other support components, the first two kits contain an enzyme while the third contains a radioactive tracer.

The applicable subheading for the three in-vitro diagnostic kits will be 3822.00.1000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for composite diagnostic reagents containing antigen or antisera. The rate of duty will be free.
