Accurately filling out a registration form, affixing a barcode label to the sample bottle and sending the oil sample to the appropriate lab for analysis are the final steps in submitting an oil sample.
Accurate, thorough and complete lube and equipment information not only allows for in-depth analysis, but can eliminate confusion and difficulties that can occur when interpreting results.
A component registration form is included with every sample kit. Always complete the Sample Information section of the form. Fill out the Component Registration section of the form when sampling a component for the first time or to notify the laboratory of a change for a previously registered component or fluid. The Component Registration section of the form does not need to be completed if a previous sample has been analyzed for that specific Component ID and no information has changed. The laboratory will request additional information if the registration form is incomplete and there is no information on record from the last sample that was analyzed.
The Component Registration Form includes a barcode that corresponds to the to sample information you recorded on the form. Identical barcode labels are included on the bottom of the Component Registration Form.
Small return-address labels are provided on the Component Registration Form for non-postage-paid kits. Choose the label for the laboratory nearest you.
Make sure to include your return address on the package.
