How to Send a Sample

The following is a summary of how to send samples to MST for analysis. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.


Elemental Analysis

Please send a sample in a single sheet case, an FOSB or a chip case.

Organic Pollution Assessment

If possible, please prepare two identical samples, place a sample's surface on the other's surface and wrap them twice in a matte surface of aluminum foil.

Small Fragment Sample

If a sample requires careful handling with tweezers, please put the sample in a clear zuppered bag that can be seen from the outside; the weighing paper may flick the sample away; the chip case may have static electricity, which makes it impossible to take out the sample. For organic contamination evaluation, please contact us saparately.

Powder Sample

Please send a sample in a small bottle, a weighing paper or a zipper bag.

Liquid Sample

Fill a screw cap container with a sample. If the sample amount is very small, we can lend you special containers.

Biological Sample

Wrap a sample in aluminum foil, put it in a zipper bag, place them in a styrofoam container with package cushioning or dry ice (if not, ice packs) and send them by frozen parcel delivery service. If humidity control is required, please attach the sample to a glass slide, place it in a conical tube with a desiccant and send them to us.

Other Points to Note

  • Please indicate the surface for measuring.
  • Be careful not to touch the sample surface for measuring.
  • For samples that may be altered by exposure to air, please consult us.
  • Please ship fragile samples in a cardboard box with package cushioning.
  • Samples that need to be chilled should be sent by chilled parcel delivery service in a styrofoam box with ice packs.
  • Samples that need to be frozen should be sent by frozen parcel delivery service in a styrofoam box with dry ice to avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles of the samples.
  • Biological samples to be analyzed must be non-infectious. Analysis results must be used for research purposes only and not for diagnositic and therapeutic purposes.
