Sample Collection

What do I need to do?

You should receive a sampler packet which includes:

  • A cover letter with a permission form for guardians/parents to sign and a data sheet to fill out sample information.
  • A labeled 50 mL tube with your sample number.
  • A labeled 120 mL container if you’re collecting a duplicate sample.
  • Parafilm to seal the container(s) (wrap it around the lid after you’ve capped the container — watch this how-to if you can’t figure it out)
  • A pre-labeled refrigerator magnet with your sample number.
  • The data sheet must have the date and time the sample was taken from the faucet.
