Safety information

When shipping pharmaceutical samples it particularly important that you submit information about the matrix at hand. In order to protect ALS employees and assure that the best possible analytical method is applied we therefore need the below information about samples sent to ALS:

  • Sample matrix
  • High expected concentrations of PBT (persistent bio accumulative toxic) or toxic substances
  • Potential infection risks
  • Do the samples require any special storage conditions or spaces?
  • Submit an MSDS, Master Safety Data Sheet (if possible)
