Submitting Sample Info to the Lab

Available options: via Paper, PC or Mobile

Sample Submission

You can choose your preferred method of notification that your sample is on its way to the Lab. There are three options: 


  • You either fill out a paper form, include it in the envelope and send it together with the sample to the lab location.
  • The 2nd option is to log in on www.eoilreport.com and fill out the sample info.
  • Or the third way, use the Horizon app.

1. Paper

Sample Info/Component Registration Forms

A Sample Information/Component Registration Form (on the right) is included with every sample kit. Fill it out only when sampling a new component for the first time or to notify the laboratory of a change in component or fluid information already registered with the laboratory. Complete, up-to-date information ensures that you receive the proper testing and an accurate analysis of the results.


Sample Labels

Two barcode labels are provided with every Sample Information/Component Registration Form. Every sample submitted to the laboratory must have a barcode attached to the bottle. Make sure the Component ID is listed on both the barcode label and the paperwork. If your sample is submitted online, you will still need to attach a barcode label – with the Component ID written on it – to the sample bottle.


Sampling and Shipping

Attach the return address label for the laboratory location to the mailing envelope. Apply the appropriate postage and ship. It is highly recommended that a trackable delivery service be used for shipping samples to the laboratory. Log on to www.eoilreports.com and enter the tracking number just below the barcode to track your sample’s progress once it arrives at the laboratory.
