For each strain/cultivar you wish to test, sterilize scissors w/10% Bleach solution for 10 minutes and wipe dry.  (this is to ensure there is no contamination between samples).  

Root Sampling:

Fresh disposable gloves, use freshly sterilized scissors for each sample.


Carefully lift the plant up from the pot.  Dust off soil near the surface and remove a small section of lateral roots.  Dust the soil off the root cutting and place a one or two centimeter cutting into a zip lock bag and seal.  label the bag to match sample submission form.  Immediately place sample into a cooler with ice packs or directly into refrigerator.  Please send sample overnight.
