New protocol for sending leaf samples to LGC Genomics

Dear LGC Genomics users,
Many of you have encountered a problem while sending leaf disk samples to LGC Genomics using their sampling kit. In many cases, leaf samples are arriving mouldy. To avoid any frustration from both users and LGC Genomics, and after consultation with Dusty, we recommend that you follow this procedure:

  • Place the desiccant bag between the seal and lid of the plant collection kit. As this may lead to the lid being loose, we recommend that you tape the pack sample rack/seal/desiccant/lid together to prevent movement of the lid while keeping the desiccant in contact with the seal during the mailing.

In addtion to the above procedure, the desiccant can still work if it is placed on top of the lid as long as it is placed into the plastic bag and closed as shown on the protocol received with the sampling kit.
If you have any doubts or questions, please don’t hesitate to ask

Eric Wendell

There are many software available in the market that allows you to send data over a protocol. But often entounters bug during reception. However, the new MBAS software allows you to send data over TCP is now being used widely in the agricultural departments. For more information you can also look here.
