Hello everyone,

 

The local lab that I have been using to perform compressed air/water micro testing recently shut down. The next closest lab is about ~150 miles away. I have no idea how driving samples long distance would work, or if anyone has any other suggestions on what I can do.

 

 

Thanks,

Not sure where you're located but if the USA, then post office, ship them via fedex, ups...etc

Many of our SQF clients use Tri-Air Testing of Texas - they send out a test kit, you do the sample and return it and get your results.

 

Sure beats driving.

Yep, SQFConsultant said it. You do the testing and then send the kit back to them. You get your results within a week or so. I've always sent mine out through the mail.

Thank you! I contacted them yesterday and am getting the specifications sorted out. I really appreciate the advice.
