11. Warranty Disclaimer
OriGen Biomedical warrants that reasonable care has been used in the manufacture of these devices and that they are free from defects in workmanship or materials at the time of shipment from OriGen.

Origen shall not be liable for any lost profits or for any claim or demand against OriGen by any other party. In no event will Origen be liable for special, indirect or consequential damages, even if OriGen has been advised of the possibility of such damages, OriGen’s aggregate liability for damages under this agreement, whether arising from or based upon breach of warranty, breach of contract, tort or other cause of action, shall in no case exceed the purchase price that buyer pays for the particular goods involved.
