Sample Storage and Storage Policies

Loring Laboratories stores samples that have been processed and reported on by the laboratory for a minimum of 1 year. Please contact the lab for the status of your sample. We make every effort to accommodate requests to perform additional analyses on the same sample within one year of the original analysis, provided that the sample stored is the appropriate sample type, adequate in amount and good integrity.

Every care is taken to ensure that samples are processed separately in the sample preparation area and the geochemistry lab. Samples are in this way, never contaminated and the sample stored is as intact as when it arrived.

Sample inventory management with LIMS is used to track samples throughout their processing and testing and allows for accession, storage and retrieval of samples, aliquots and related data quickly.

Storage policy is typically the following:

• All pulps are retained for a period of one year.
• All crushed rejects are retained for 6 months.

Note: Arrangements can be made for longer storage periods with a nominal fee applied.

We are proud of our ISO Registered Quality System
