Include the following information: detailed sample description; sample type (e.g. animal origin, dairy product, plant origin, processed meat, environmental swabs, alcoholic beverage, cosmetic, raw material, petrochemical, etc.); the sample texture (e.g. solid, semi solid, liquid, powder); storage condition (e.g. frozen <0°, chilled 3°±2°, ambient >7°). Please remember to indicate the quantity of samples and the frequency of testing.
