Suitable Sample Submissions
Bat droppings (guano)
If you think you may have a mixed species site it is best to send pellets individually and label a back up sample tube(s) from the same area to avoid cross contamination
Bat Species ID Kit
If you already have your own sampling materials ready to send your sample over to us that is not a problem.
If required we can send you a free sampling kit containing:

We will contact you upon receipt of your order to double check if you would like us to send out a kit. Alternatively you can email us prior to submitting your order at email@example.com to request your free kit.
