Policies & Procedures
Turn Around Time
Synergistic Pesticide Lab specializes in pesticide residue analysis of primarily food, agricultural, and environmental samples. You can expect quality results within 7 to 10 business days for a regular turnaround, depending on workload and time of year. Specific projects may be rushed with pre-approval and an additional charge.
Submitting SamplesBe sure to label the sample containers and fill out a Chain of Custody form to send with the samples. Include your contact info, sample ID, date sampled, the requested analyses, and sign/date the bottom. You are welcome to drop them off in person or send for next day delivery via FedEx, UPS, or USPS. During the winter, some samples with enough coolant can be sent 2nd Day or Ground.
After you submit a sample or set of samples, we will communicate with you regarding the project's status. Upon completion of your project, you will receive your final report via email (PDF). We can also give you a call with verbals or send the report by fax or mail. We maintain a strict confidentiality policy and never share your results without your permission!
When your results are ready, we will issue an invoice to be paid by check only in 30 days or less. Please let us know who we should contact by email or mail for invoicing.
