Shipping Product Samples

To insure the integrity and security of samples sent to Medallion, we ask that our customers observe the following guidelines when shipping samples:
  • Secure each food sample in its own container. Seal each sample package completely so that no leakage will occur.
  • This is very important to prevent cross-contamination.
  • Use packing materials that are strong enough to travel without damage or leakage.
  • Samples needing refrigeration should be shipped appropriately.
  • Please mark “refrigerate” on the outside of the package to ensure continuous refrigeration.
  • Label each sample individually with the identification you would like included on the final report.
  • CAUTION: Do not use magic marker for labeling pesticide residue samples. This will contaminate the matrix.
  • Enclose a Medallion Analytical or Nutritional Submission Form with sample identifiers and matrices, purchase order and analyses you would like performed on each sample.
  • If you would like your samples or shipping coolers sent back to you, please provide your UPS or FedEx shipping number or include a return label with your product.
  • Additional fees may apply for sample return or for special disposal.
