When you ship samples to Aquatic Biology Associates, Inc., please send us information about your project that is necessary to process and analyze your samples. You may choose to use your own chain-of-custody sample form, enclosed with your samples.
Or, you can click here to download our sample log spreadsheet. List samples and essential collecting information, such as the sampling gear used, net mesh size, and area sampled. Your completed sample log can be shipped with your samples or e-mailed to us.
We will use your sample log when taking inventory of your samples when they arrive at our lab. We will contact you by e-mail that they have arrived safely and in good condition. Any discrepancies between information on the sample log and the sample labels, or the number of samples, will be resolved or clarified at that time.
