Sample size guideline

SMT LABS continuously aspire to deliver your test results as soon as possible. To avoid unnecessary delays, please abide by the following instructions:


It is very important that we receive the completed Sample Submission Form (attached), with clear written testing instructions and your supporting purchase order. These documents have to accompany your samples, when delivered to our laboratories in order to avoid any unnecessary delays. It is also a mandatory SANAS (ISO 17025) requirement that we receive clear and explicit instructions from all clients as well as supporting documents.  We strive to register all samples on the day of receipt, however this may not always be possible if samples are received after 15:00.

Sample sizes:

Our test methods require a specific quantity of the sample to be tested. If we do not receive a sufficient quantity of the sample, we unfortunately cannot conduct the tests required.  See our SMT-R-94 Sample Size Guideline

We thank you in advance for your assistance in this regard.

Test today, improve tomorrow!
