DIFFICULT MATRICES AND MARKER COMPOUND
Premiums and/or increased turnaround time may apply for analyses of unusual or difficult matrices. Due to the precision instrumentation used in analytical testing each instrument is calibrated prior to analysis of each sample. The most accurate results are obtained when calibration is completed to a predetermined range dependant on the material and the anticipated marker compound levels. When sample concentrations are outside of this range the samples must be re-prepared and re-analyzed using an alternate range. Marker compound range is expected with each sample submission. If range finding is necessary the client may incur additional expense and turnaround time will be increased. The client will be contracted prior to proceeding.
When submitting a sample for analysis, please complete a Chain of Custody Form (COC), which can be found under “test forms.” Failure to submit a properly completed Chain of Custody could result in a delay of sample processing and/or analysis. On the Chain of Custody, you will be asked to provide us with the following information:
- Name of contact persons: Your results at IL are strictly confidential and results will be released to your list of contacts only.
- General Contact Information: Address, phone, and fax number, email.
- Hard copies of analytical results are mailed upon completion, unless otherwise indicated. Additionally, results may be phoned, faxed, or emailed. For your convenience, please list the preferred method to obtain your results on your Chain of Custody.
- Sample description: a lot number or sample number and a physical description.
- List of requested analyses: List the analyses and the anticipated range of the marker compound. If range finding is necessary additional costs maybe incurred and standard lead times will not apply. See section on "difficult matrices and marker compound range.”
RETAINING AND DISCARDING OF SAMPLES
After the completion of analysis and reporting of results, the remainder of your sample will be retained for 15 days, at which time it will be disposed of. If you would like any remaining product returned to you please indicate your request at the time of sample submission. Due to regulatory concerns hazardous samples will be returned to the client.
All new clients are required to pay at the time of service. Industrial Laboratories accepts Cash, Check, or Credit Card. Results will be held and not released until payment has been received. For recurring clients, Industrial Labs offers credit terms. Standard terms are Net 30 days from the date of invoice.
