How Do I Send a Sample to Avanti?

The first step is to fill out our online Analytical Services Order Form. This form allows you to communicate all of the information we need to process your order, confirms pricing, and notifies us to expect your sample. Print out a copy of the completed order form after submitting it online and send it in the package with your samples. Always send your sample in a tightly sealed container with a label providing an adequate description of the contents. Sealed foil pouches, screw cap glass bottles that are taped shut with stretch tape, or typical nutraceutical plastic bottles containing capsules are all examples of acceptable types of sample containers. If you have perishable samples, please send them on ice packs or dry ice via an expedited shipping method such as FedEx priority overnight. Make sure to protect your sample container from breakage with bubble wrap or other packing materials and send them to:

Avanti Polar Lipids, Inc.
Attention: Analytical Services
700 Industrial Park Drive
Alabaster, AL 35007
Phone: 205-663-2494

Once we receive your sample, you will receive an email confirming receipt of your sample and the approximate date you will receive your results.
