Sampling kits

Cellmark's GCN eDNA sampling kits are designed to make your job as easy as possible - they match Natural England protocols. Their cost is included in the overall price of the service.

Ensure unused kits are kept at room temperature in an appropriate solvent store, consistent with Health & Safety regulations. Use them within four (4) weeks of receipt.
Each kit will contain the following items:

The sample tubes, packaging and sample return form have all been pre-barcoded for your convenience. We recommend that you retain the outer packaging of the kit as this can be used to return multiple samples.

Please ensure that you follow the sampling and return instructions carefully.

Delivery & Sample returns

Once we have received your order we will arrange for the kit(s) to be couriered to your chosen location. The cost of this is also included in the overall price of the service. Normally, when we receive an order before 3pm, we can arrange for it to be delivered the following working day.

We appreciate that customers will have different requirements for returning samples and we aim to accommodate these:

Please ensure that you follow the return packaging guidelines on the reverse of the sample return form. All samples are checked on arrival to ensure that they are in a suitable state to be tested.
