How to pack and send samples

  1. Please pack each sample separately (e.g. in a zip bag or plastic vial), in a way preventing its contact with the atmospheric air, and make it clearly labelled,
  2. register each sample through our online registration form (download DOC [Word] form). Alternatively, describe your samples on our Word-type information sheets (open on-line sample registration form), and provide them either via e-mail or in printed form (sent together with the samples),
  3. pack all of the samples into a rigid box or bubble envelope (having in mind, that sample vials placed in a soft envelope, might be cracked during shipment),
  4. when sending samples from outside the European Union, please attach (if possible: outside the parcel) a custom declaration (preferably on our form (download)), with the minimum “value for customs purposes” stated
  5. send your package to our postal address: Poznan Radiocarbon Laboratory, Rubież 46E, 61-612 Poznań, Poland
  6. please provide an order, stating name, and postal address (and EU VAT number if applicable) of the institution/person willing to pay for dating your samples, and the total price ready to be paid
