The water sampling instructions depend on the type of water to be sent for analysis. It is critical to get in touch with the lab before sampling to get the most accurate results for your samples.
NOTE: 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.
Please use this label for customs declaration: “Carbon NCM Number 2803.00 – for scientific study – to be destroyed entirely during the analysis – no commercial value.”
