What are the steps to get a sample tested?
Complete a service request form, found here
Once completed, a copy of the request form will be sent via email; check the SPAM/junk folder if it cannot be found
Package up the sample(s); specific volume requirements are listed in the catalogue
Label samples “for analysis only, not for human consumption”
Use appropriate packaging materials, such as bubble wrap and packing peanuts, to minimize the risk of samples breaking
Include a copy of the request form in the box, if possible
Ship samples to the appropriate location using any carrier (FedEx or UPS recommended)
Specific location addresses can be found here (at the bottom of the page)
Do NOT ship for Early AM delivery
Once samples and a service request form have been received by BDAS, they will be placed in the queue
Typically, BDAS will not make contact when samples are received
Check tracking to see if the package has been delivered before calling
For the majority of in-house tests, standard turnaround is 7-10 business days and priority turnaround is 2 business days. Turnaround for outsourced testing is 10-15 business days. See the catalogue for specific details.
