Five years ago Naktuinbouw Laboratories switched to the use of Bioreba bags for all leaf tests for PCR and ELISA testing. If the samples were not delivered in Bioreba bags, the costs (purchase of the Bioreba bags, the extra time and labor) to transfer samples into Bioreba bags were not charged to the client. This is going to change. As of January 1, 2024, there will be a handling fee for samples that not have been delivered in Bioreba bags. This handling fee is € 2.40 per sample.
