Sample Submissions

Sample Drop-off

  • Please contact us first to discuss your project.
  • We will generate a quote with detailed pricing for your specific project.
  • Let us know when you are ready to submit.  Generally earlier in the week is better to allow for faster results.  Typical turn-around time is one week.
  • An account number for billing is necessary for work to begin.

Sample Shipment

  • If you are outside the university, ship early in the week, preferably Monday or Tuesday, so we can be sure samples will reach our facility in a timely manner.
  • Use Priority Overnight service and pack tubes wrapped in parafilm and in a secondary plastic bag.   Fill your shipping container fully with dry ice. Please note that dry ice shipments usually require special documentation and packaging labels.
  • Include a detailed list of your samples including name and contents. Contact us to let us know your samples are in transit and provide a tracking number if available.
