Materials NOT SUITABLE for garbage disposal – Please contact the lab for discussion prior to submittal.
IMPORTANT: Beta Analytic can only receive chemicals, solvents, and fuels in very small quantities – not exceeding 0.3 cc (300 microliters).
Recommended Container for Liquids – 1 mL glass micro-sample vial with a crimp top that has a Teflon-lined septum. The vial should only be ¼ – ½ full.
Make sure the vials have snap caps or any tight closure that will prevent leakage. You can also use vials found at this site. Wrap the vials properly to prevent breakage during shipment.
Please make sure the vials have chemically non-reactive seals, e.g. made of a silicone disk with one or two teflon faces. If you use low-volume screw top vials like the amber one above, make sure they have a non-reactive cap liner made from silicone and teflon or some other chemically non-reactive material. Do not use vials that have caps lined with a piece of cardboard with an Aluminum-foil face on one side. The cardboard side is glued to the cap. These are not suitable for volatile liquids as the vapors can dissolve the glue and contaminate the sample during shipment.
Beta Analytic is a tracer-free laboratory. Samples that have been artificially enhanced with Carbon-12, Carbon-13, Carbon-14 or any other isotope cannot be accepted for analysis as they may cause damage to the lab’s equipment. Any damages to equipment or loss of equipment time resulting from samples that contain elevated isotope ratios will be the responsibility of the client and will be billed to the client.
