How do I submit samples to VMRD for testing?
Samples should be shipped to VMRD to the attention of the "Laboratory Director." All samples must have a sample submission form (available upon request) indicating the tests requested and a valid import permit. Sample submissions can also be arranged on our Updated Customer Portal. If you would like to sign up for the portal, please let us know by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. A Customer Experience Center Representative will assist you in account creation.
If you already have a Portal account and need assistance on how to submit a sample, please contact us at email@example.com or feel free to watch the instructional video below or download the written instructions.
