Sampling and turn-around time

Analytical results refer strictly to the submitted sample. The extent to which the sample is representative depends on the sampling procedure which is of crucial importance.

For GMO testing in grains please submit a minimum number of 3000 seeds. For other matrices like animal feed and food, samples of at least 50 - 100 g are required.

Your Romer Labs representative is happy to consult you on the right sampling procedures.

Our normal turn-around time is 10 working days. Faster testing within 72 hours or same day results are available on request and at an additional charge. Contact your local Romer Labs representative or laboratory for more information.
