Sample Information Forms

A Sample Information Form is included in every all-inclusive analysis kit for oil analysis, lubricant analysis, grease analysis, coolant analysis and fuel analysis.

It contains:

  • A detachable, self-adhesive barcode sample number you can use to label the sample bottle. Even if you are entering the details of your sample via our customer portal LAB.REPORT, you must stick this barcode to the sample bottle. This is the only way the details you enter can be unmistakably assigned to the relevant sample.
  • An easily detachable sample reference which you keep for your records. This includes the laboratory number, already printed on the reference slip in case of queries, with the sample designation, delivery date and UPS tracking information (where applicable) to be added.
  • Questions about your oil sample, which will allow the experienced tribologist to make a detailed assessment of the values produced by the analysis.
  • All important information for handling samples can be found on the reverse.

Oil analyses
Standard information form

You can provide information on liquid samples from a wide range of sources in our Universal Sample Information Form. Use this form if our individual Sample Information Forms, recording information specific to certain industries or uses, do not cover your sample.

When you place your order, you can specify whether you would prefer to receive a specific Sample Information Form with your all-inclusive analysis kit instead of the universal information form. These individual forms are easier to complete, as they, for the most part, explicitly request the information required to produce a relevant assessment.

If you have already received the universal information form, check on our customer portal LAB.REPORT whether it might be better for you to enter your information online and use a specific information form template.

Grease analyses

We are receiving more and more lubricating grease samples. That's why our Grease Sample Information Form asks the right questions needed for lubricating grease diagnostics. Send us your lubricating grease samples with this information form enclosed. This allows you to guarantee a relevant interpretation of the analysis values produced.

If you are downloading the Sample Information Form for greases or entering the sample at LAB.REPORT, label the sample bottle with a sample number from one of the Sample Information Forms you have.

Fast online entry

If you cannot use the provided Sample Information Form, enter the sample information via our free customer portal LAB.REPORT. Here, you find an unused laboratory number for your all-inclusive analysis kits. Always mark the sample bottle with the laboratory number that you used to enter the sample data.

If you already are an OELCHECK customer, you can request your login data for LAB.REPORT at any time. Your address and the machine and component data are saved here. For new samples you just have to complete the sample-related data.In the customer portal you can retrieve all your laboratory reports with images, data and additional tools for sample management.

With the new OELCHECK-App you can enter your sample data via smartphone or tablet by means of QR-Code directly at your machine.
