Exhibit Disposal

Please indicate below how you would like for us to dispose of your original exhibit and associated packaging. If you wish for us to retain and store the original exhibit, storage fees may apply. Note that extracts of fire debris samples are retained by our laboratory as a part of the analysis process. Reanalysis of sample data at a later date is therefore possible without the original sample.


Your completed form will be sent to GKA Analytical Services staff, who will review your analysis request and carry out the analysis once your sample has been received. If you have not previously submitted samples to us, we will contact you to confirm your analysis needs before carrying out the analysis. If the scope of your request falls outside of our current capabilities, we will discuss alternative analysis options with you.

To ensure the most accurate test results are obtained, please ensure exhibits are collected and packaged appropriately. For guidance on packaging, please see our Packaging Exhibits Technical Bulletin. Our standard analysis turnaround time is 3 business days. However, complex or unusual analyses may take longer to complete. We will advise you of any delays in analysis.
