Storage and Handling

Most samples will be stored sealed within the container they were submitted in at room temperature in a well-ventilated laboratory.

If required (and indicated) samples can also be stored in a:

  • Fridge (~4°C)
  • Freezer (~ -20°C)
  • Vacuum desiccator.
  • Glove box

Storage is available for radioactive and bio-hazardous samples, but please let us know before sending the sample so that we can make suitable arrangements.

If you have any other special requirements for storage please contact us to discuss these and where possible we will be happy to arrange these facilities.
