Australia Sampling Protocols
Groundwater Samples for Australia
Detailed instructions on how to use the Bio-Flo sampling approach to collect groundwater samples using a variety of pumps (peristaltic preferred, grundfos, air bladder, etc.) for MBTs.
Detailed instructions on how to collect groundwater samples in poly bottles for MBTs.
Detailed instructions on how to collect groundwater samples for CSIA.
Bio-Trap Samplers for Australia
Detailed instructions on how to use the Bio-Trap Samplers for DNA based analyses.
Bio-Trap Sampler Protocol for DNA (DNA based CENSUS (qPCR), QuantArray, and/or NGS)
Soil/Sediment/Solid Samples Australia
Detailed instructions on how to collect soil/sediment samples for DNA based analyses.
Soil/Sediment/Solid Sampling Protocol for DNA ((DNA based CENSUS (qPCR), QuantArray, and/or NGS)
Corrosion Sampling Protocols for Australia
MI can analyze almost any type of sample matrix including water, coupons, pipe samples and scrapings, pig run solids, black powder and more. Following are links to pdf files which provide detailed descriptions on how to collect MIC samples. These same protocols apply for any DNA based assay (QuantArray, NGS, CENSUS (qPCR)).
MI Australia Chain of Custody
A chain of custody (COC) form must be included with each shipment of samples. Please package the COC in a moisture-proof bag and attach on the underside of the cooler lid. Click on the pdf link to obtain a copy of our COC or contact us to have a copy faxed to you.
