What is the sample log, and why is it important?
A sample log must be submitted with each kit as it provides our data team with the information needed to analyze your sample and generate your results.
In this very brief form, we require identification of the following sample collection details:
- Kit ID
- Sampling location
- Sampling method
- Sample start date & time
- Sample collect date & time
- Average influent flow over sample period
- Sample matrix
We request you submit your sampling log within 24 hours of collecting your sample to ensure prompt delivery of results. You may access the digital sample log form at app.biobot.io/sample.
*Please note that we are only able to report the sample's data if the sample log is completed
