LabQMC Sample Submission
Submission of samples to LabQMC is a straight forward process. The following is information on Forms and Paperwork, Payment, Shipment, and Sample Return.
Forms and Paperwork
Sample Submission Form:
All samples must be accompanied by a copy of our Sample Submission Form (link to the PDF form here). If you need assistance in filling out the form, please do not hesitate to contact us. All submitted forms must be signed as agreement to our terms and conditions.
Safety Data Sheets (SDS):
We require that the correct SDS accompanies the submission of all samples. For manufactured items that do not have an SDS and prevent no health hazard, this should be noted on the submission form. Please note that we cannot accept materials that are radioactive, biohazards, or present hazards for which the laboratory is not equipped.
If paying by purchase order (PO), a physical copy of the PO must be included with the samples.
Analyses can be paid for by credit card or purchase order. If paying by credit card, please provide that information on the submission form, or, if you prefer, call LabQMC to provide that information over the phone. We accept all major credit cards. If paying by PO, a copy of the PO must be included with the samples.
International orders must be paid by credit card or wire transfer. Complete payment information must be received before we begin analysis. International credit cards are charged an additional 3% service fee.
New customers paying by PO may be asked to fill out a business credit application. Credit approval may take 5-10 business days.
Samples should be shipped to the following address:
c/o Quantachrome Instruments
1900 Corporate Dr
Boynton Beach, FL 33426
When you send samples to us, please ensure they are packaged properly and securely. Powders in plastic bags must be individually double bagged, the outer bag being taped closed. Glass bottles and vials should be protectively wrapped before being placed in a suitable shipping box. Each sample container must be permanently marked with unique sample identification that matches the details on the sample submission form. Any health hazard warnings should also be placed on the container(s).
All samples from US customers will be returned approximately 30 days after reporting of results.
Standard method of return for domestic samples is by UPS Ground Service and a $15 sample return fee will be added to your invoice. Alternatively, you may provide us with a FedEx or UPS account number on the submission form, which will be used for sample return.
International samples will be properly disposed of 12 months after reporting analysis results.
Samples contaminated with mercury cannot be returned and will be disposed of appropriately.
The disposal fee is included in the analysis price.
