Following our successful Foragelab app for iOS and Android, this new submission process helps you ensure prompt handling of your samples when they arrive at the lab. You can include detailed descriptions of your sample, select the analysis you require, provide GPS coordinates of the source and even attach a source picture of your sample.

How It Works

CVAS provides quart-sized sample bags at no charge. The sample bags have a form affixed that provides the user the opportunity to identify the sample and request services without additional paperwork. If you are submitting your sample using the mobile app or website for general information, please be sure to include your account number and UniqueID on the sample bag that was given during the submission process.

CVAS can provide poly shipping bags for shipping samples. These work for shipping samples by UPS and U.S. Mail. Two sizes are available: 12 inch x 15.5 inch at $0.25 each and 19 inch x 24 inch at $0.70 each.

To order US Postal shipping labels and/or UPS shipping bags you may call us toll free at 1-800-282-7522, or fax us at 301-790-1981. We request that you obtain Priority Mail shipping bags from your local Post Office.


CVAS has been certified by NFTA yearly since we began participating in the program over 15 years ago. CVAS is certified by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture for manure testing.
