Sample Handling Makes a Difference

Broken Air-O-Cell cassettes, asbestos samples stuck to duct tape…open zip-lock bags with paint chips falling out… Actual shipments that have been received by our laboratory.

When this happens, you will notice that additional time and documentation is needed in order to provide results to you.

A few suggestions on how you can help preserve the integrity of your media and, ultimately, the reliability of your analyses…

Carefully label and document your samples before sending them to the lab.

Do not place a chain of custody in a sample bag or sample container. This paperwork should never come in direct contact with the actual sample.

Wrap all glass tubes and other delicate items in bubble wrap.

Don’t use duct tape – strong adhesives can tear off labels and make sample separation difficult for our analysts.

If you’re ever unsure of the best way to pack samples, just ask…Remember, when in doubt call us!
