What can I do if I have sent my sample, but forgot to fill out the collection form?

If the date, time, collection location or the collector's name is missing, we will call you one time using the number we have on file. We will leave a message with the clerk, secretary, or answering service for you to call us. You will have until 12 (noon) the next day to return the call, or we will reject the sample and send you a replacement (Yellow - REPL card) kit for you to collect another sample.

If you realize that you left off information after sending your sample, you can call the lab at 785-296-0971, and we can update your form when the sample arrives at the lab.
