How do i submit a sample?

 Step 1: If you are a first time client, please fill out the contact form here. 

Step 2: The Analysis Request Form: For every set of samples that you submit, you will need to fill out our MCL Analysis Request Form.  We provide the request form in both a PDF format which you can print or an excel format which you can adjust to fit your needs. 

     · Fill in the client information and the sample information at the top of the request form.
     · Write down a sample description for each sample that you are submitting. The sample description is what will be used to generate a report, so please make sure to add any details pertaining to the product or swab that you would like to appear on the report (ie. Production date, expiration date, weight, etc).  If you need more than one line to fit all the necessary details in, please feel free to do so.
    · Check off the boxes for all the analyses you want on each sample.  If you need to see a brief explanation of the analyses, they are available in our services list.
    · If you are filling in the request form electronically, please email it to the lab the day prior to pickup or on the day of shipping (  If you are not filling it out electronically, include a copy with your samples.

Step 3: Getting samples to us:

    · Our Company Courier: If you are local to the Seattle area, we provide a courier service in the mornings on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. We do not provide a courier service on Tuesdays or Thursdays at this time. The route covers most of Seattle, south Seattle, and the Kent area. If you are a first time client and would like to see if your facility is on our route, please call us or fill out our new client contact form.  If you are a returning client, please login to the client page and schedule a pickup that way.

     · Dropping off samples:  You are more than welcome to drop off your samples at anytime Monday thru Friday from 7AM to 3PM. You can also use a local courier service; we have worked with Fleetfoot before, and we have found them to be reliable (206-728-7700). To ensure that testing starts the same day as drop off, you will need to drop off all samples by noon. There is a parking lot in the back of the building (down the alley way) that you are more than welcome to use.  The address for all drop-offs is:

 711 6th Ave N, Suite 100
 Seattle, WA 98109

· Shipping samples: You can ship them to us using USPS, UPS, or FedEX.  Remember to be mindful of the temperature necessary during shipping.  All swabs should be shipped on ice, but products will vary according to their intended use.  The address to ship samples to is:

 711 6th Ave N, Suite 100
  Seattle, WA 98109
