Shipping Samples

Kathinka Labs guarantees most lab results within 48 hours (two business days) of receiving your samples. Let’s make sure you get those samples to us safely and quickly:

Step 1: Purchase your lab analysis packages on our website.

Step 2: Print a copy of your e-receipt after your order is placed and include it with your samples.

Step 3: Properly label and package your samples:

  • Please send a minimum two duplicate 12 oz. samples for beer analysis, one 750ml spirit sample, or two duplicate 8 oz. samples for kombucha analysis. Note: minimum sample volumes are tied to your requested analysis type(s), so please double check the Package details for the volume requirements.
  • Label samples with codes provided in your confirmation email.
  • Label box with “Samples for laboratory analysis only,” “Fragile,” and “This side up”.
  • Shipping kombucha? We recommend using an insulated box with 3-4 gel ice packs to keep samples cold during shipping.
