This section pertains to the inspection of a sample of medicine by a buyer. Here's what it says:
When a sample of medicine is shown to and inspected by the buyer, both parties agree that the purpose of showing and inspecting the sample is solely to allow the buyer to assess the quality of the bulk (presumably a larger quantity of the same medicine). It does not constitute a sale by sample.
In other words, if a buyer is shown and inspects a sample of medicine, they should use that sample to judge the quality of the larger quantity (bulk) they intend to purchase. However, this act of showing and inspecting the sample does not automatically mean a sale has taken place based on the sample alone. The actual sale is based on the quality of the bulk product.
These clauses are common in business contracts to establish clear payment terms and conditions related to product samples. They help ensure that both parties understand their rights and responsibilities in the transaction.
