1.2 Obtaining a meaningful sample

A sample should be representative of the bulk from which it was removed and should be stored in such a way that it retains its integrity before analysis.

This is a big advantage of test kits. They remove the necessity for transportation or extended storage periods, during which time the composition of the sample may change due to biochemical or surface reactions.
