Sample submission:

A selection of sample submission, labelling and shipping tips is available for reference.

Returning clients can make note of their Client ID to expedite the sample submission process.

Before submitting samples to the Environmental Isotope Lab (EIL), please ensure the following:

  • A sample list template (XLSX) including "Billing Information" has been completed and emailed to the EIL as well as included in your shipment as a printout.
    • New Clients: Fill out "Client" and "Invoicing" information. Make note of your Client ID when assigned
    • Returning Clients: If a Client ID has been assigned and is included, "Invoicing Info" is not required
  • If your institution requires a purchase order (PO), make sure it is emailed to the EIL.
  • Make sure billing information (DOCX) is provided (not necessary if already completed in the sample list template). Billing will occur after analyses are complete.
  • A chain of custody form (DOCX) is available to help facilitate delivery.
  • If shipping from outside of Canada, a customs clearance form (DOCX) is available. It must be sent to both Reem and Christine (UW Procurement) as well as printed and attached to the outside of your shipping container.
  • Make sure to indicate that the shipment is Delivered Duty Paid (DDP). When preparing the Waybill for your carrier, check all transportation charges to sender and all duties and taxes to sender.
  • Country Specific Taxes: Please let us know if there are any supplemental taxes at your end that we need to account for. There are no Canadian taxes for research.
  • Sample Chemistry: We require the actual chemistry/concentrations of the samples provided to us to perform the analyses including units. This is critical as sample preparations are based on this information. If samples need to be reprocessed due to incorrect information, an additional fee may be incurred.

Accepted forms of Payment (Payer to accept all charges):

  1. Company or personal cheque
  2. Credit Card: VISA, VISA Debit, Master Card, AMEX (Canadian funds only)
