Oxygen (18O) and Hydrogen (D/H) Water Sample Tips

1) Avoid over-tightening caps
2) Do not freeze water samples in glass vials.
3) Avoid storing samples in containers with a headspace greater than the volume of the solution.

4) The SIF only analyzes samples with a pH between 5 and 9. Samples outside this range must be neutralized prior to shipment to the SIF.
