Client Updates:

In order to improve overall customer service, AFL is reinforcing its submission form policy.  It is critical for us to have complete information at the time your sample arrives and is processed through login. This is to help facilitate processing of samples and to prevent any testing errors.

Helpful Tips:

  • Save form as a template with your standard information completed.
    • With each submission fill in pertinent information.
  • Attach additional information or questions on separate sheet of paper.
  • Copy your salesperson, if applicable, for special tests or turnaround so they may work with login and lab department to meet your need.
  • If shipping product for testing, email us at a copy of the submission form in advance so that we may begin to process; when your product arrives it will require verification only and be processed quicker.
  • Results will be emailed to contact listed on the submission form; results are also available via Result Point.

Going forward, if we receive a submission form that does not comply, samples will be placed on hold and client contacted. Testing will not proceed until a valid submission form is provided.

Rush Testing Guidelines
We understand your need to often request rush testing and will make every effort to accommodate you as an important client. Following are some suggestions to make the process easier and to ensure you get your results in a timely manner.

  • Notify AFL in advance; prior to sending samples if possible.
    • Contact your sales representative; if they are unavailable, contact the appropriate lab department, or call the main number.
  • Provide either submission sheet or detailed request in advance so that we may assess our ability to process the rush.
    • Allows discussion for cost and timing
    • Review methodologies
    • Opportunity to make alternative arrangements, if necessary
  • If advance notice is not possible ensure RUSH is highlighted on submission form and attach any additional questions or information
    • Contact your sales representative; if they are unavailable, contact the appropriate lab department, or call the main number.
  • Rush requests are not guaranteed without confirmation either from your sales representative or lab department
  • AFL’s standard Rush charges are:
  • 100% for 24 hours
  • 75% for 2 days
  • 50% for 3 days
  • These are ranges only and will be confirmed based on specific client needs. A rush is considered complete when a final report is available to client (on result point, by email, or per request.)
