For convenience and to improve turnaround time, a sample submittal sheet (Request for Analysis) can be filled out on-line or downloaded and e-mailed. Filling out a Request for Analysis form will provide all of the information required including who the report and invoice should be distributed to. To ensure proper chain-of-custody documentation, use our Chain-of-Custody Record instead of the Request for Analysis and submit the completed form with your samples.
All samples must be identified clearly with sample numbers. This can be accomplished with waterproof ink on the sample bags or with sample tags in the sample bags. Turnaround time will be improved by packaging samples in order, neatly in shipping containers, and providing an accurate sample list, with a hard copy with the shipment and an electronic copy sent by e-mail. Sample submissions poorly labelled or packaged, or having incomplete or no submission sheets may not be processed until adequate written instructions are received from the client and may incur additional sorting charges.
If using pop top vials or glass bottles, ensure that they are taped shut and protected from breakage. Sealed plastic bags are best for shipping pulps. Complimentary shipping labels are available upon request. Heavy duty plastic sample bags, cloth sample bags, soil envelopes and sample books are available at cost.
For most efficient delivery, we recommend the use of couriers, or transport companies for heavier shipments.
