Submit your sample

(There are special requirements for CHN, Halide, and ICP. If you have any questions, please ask Elizabeth Eves (bleves [at] illinois [dot] edu )

To submit samples for microanalysis, you must fill out the online sample submission form (https://www-s.scs.illinois.edu/micro/) and submit it.

For University of Illinois, UC users, fill out the sample submission online form and bring the samples to Room 47 Noyes Lab and place in the appropriate service tray. Use the computer in this room to check them in. Samples must be checked in so that lab staff know the samples have been brought to the lab. Your samples will not be run unless they are properly submitted online and checked in.

Samples that require multiple services should be placed in the service tray to be performed first. If a sample requires multiple analyses, the customer is also asked to submit one sample for each area of analysis. For example if the customer requests CHN & ICP analysis the customer should submit at least a minimum of 2 samples for analysis. Customer is also asked to review the "Sample Preparation" section for the proper amount of sample to place in each vial. Samples that are moderately sensitive should be placed in the appropriate container such as vacuum desiccator, regular desiccator, high humidity container, or freezer. (The freezer is maintained at below 0 °C). Enter on your on-line submission form where the sample is located. Users from outside the University of Illinois need to fill out a Technical Testing Agreement before sending samples. Samples should be mailed in protected containers to:
