How to submit samples for analysis

  1. Contact us (Derek@proteincentre.com) to discuss project specifics. This includes; sample description and numbers, sample conditions, and desired outcomes.

  2. We will send you a Statement  of Work (SOW) for you to sign and return to us along with any other required documentation (Ethics approvals, etc.). The SOW will describe how we will analyze your samples as well as the cost.

  3. When we receive a signed SOW, you can initiate the process of sending us your samples (details below). If your shipper has provided you with a tracking number, please let us know what it is as soon as possible. This can help with potential delays due to brokerage issues. Before you send your samples, please fill out and print a copy of the sample submission form and include it in the box with your samples.

To submit samples for analysis, please complete the Sample Submission Form and submit it with your samples. Please also read our Terms and Conditions for placing an order.  For more information about how to ship your samples please see Shipping Information.

Please Note:

  • Please do not send samples until you have a signed SOW with the Proteomics Centre
