RE: The tariff classification of affinity purified antibodies from Spain

You state in your letter that the subject antibodies will be used exclusively in research to detect the presence of the main isoforms of amyloid beta protein in tissue or blood specimens.

The applicable subheading for affinity purified antibodies will be 3002.10.0190, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Antisera and other blood fractions and modified immunological products, whether or not obtainied by biotechnological processes: Other.” The rate of duty will be free.
