Improve accuracy and reduce data entry by eliminating the paper chain of custody.


Online Sample Submission

Sample data is entered in the field using pre-defined methods and uploaded directly into your LIMS.

EnviroChain streamlines sample login and reduces costs with LIMS integration.

With sample submission from the field and LIMS integration, login data entry is dramatically reduced and transcription errors are eliminated, saving time and improving accuracy.

Compared with the typical cost of processing a paper CoC in the laboratory of around $10.00, EnviroChain reduces that expense by 80% or more with a transaction cost of under $1.00 and very little data entry.

EnviroChain is a subscription service for laboratories, and starts with a FREE six month trial. Laboratories simply register for EnviroChain, build a profile, and provide a link to clients (sample generators).

Sample Generators pay no fee to submit samples. Just register, select the lab and project, and submit samples.

EnviroChain is integrated with Element LIMS from Promium or can be integrated with other LIMS. See our API Information for more detail.
