How are samples submitted?

Submission forms can be downloaded directly from our website. Once you have completed the form with all the necessary company, sample and assay information, simply include the form with your first set of samples. Once we receive them, we will create an account for you that same day.


What is Bia Diagnostics’s average turnaround time?

Most samples for ELISA analysis that arrive in our lab by 12:00 noon EST are run the same day and results posted to your email address by around 6pm EST.


How does a client pay for services?

You will be invoiced when testing is complete. We appreciate your payment by credit card, check or EFT within 15 days of receipt of the invoice.


Do you run official methods?

Yes, we run AOAC or CODEX methods when available, and all methods are validated by us before use.

 

Can you validate our in-house method?

We can validate both your method and your matrix to be sure of compatibility. We can also run spike recovery studies on your matrix as well as repeatability, reproducibility, max-minimal levels, and other parameters as required.


What is a Matrix?

The matrix is the total composition of your sample.


What is an Allergen Spike?

An allergen spike is a solution known to contain a specific amount of target allergen.

 

What is a spike recovery?

A spike recovery is one method of validating that a matrix is compatible with a specific method. For an additional fee, we can run your sample with a known amount of target allergen (spike). We compare the results of the original sample, the spiked sample as well as the spike itself to determine if your sample is compatible with the method used.

 

When should a spike recovery be requested?

Spike recoveries are not required but are recommended for each new matrix submitted. Contact Bia Diagnostics for further details.
