Sending your samples to Elettra

  1. It is possible to send samples related to a specific proposal once approved for beamtime and booked on the Elettra's calendar (you should have received an email about this). Before sending your samples, log-in VUO and make sure you have or are listed on a project (check “Already submitted proposals” under “Your Proposals” section).
  2. Prepare your samples according to the instructions page.
  3. If you are going to send samples in cryogenic conditions, make sure your dewar is cold but dry (no liquid nitrogen). If you ship cryovials in canes, do not forget to put each cane in a plastic sleeve and make sure each pin and vial is tabbed in properly and/or held in place by another vial on top of them.
  4. If you are sending not dangerous samples from outside European Union:
    • Do NOT organize the shipment as “temporary exportation”
    • Purpose/Description of contents: Describe kind of specimen and add "for scientific experiments at Elettra Synchrotron (Trieste, Italy)”. Put the EU harmonized tariff number which better describes your samples (find it in https://www.tariffnumber.com/) and eventually add “Not dangerous”.

      Example1: Protein crystals in cryogenic dewar: Dry-shipper containing frozen protein crystals for scientific experiments at Elettra Synchrotron (Trieste, Italy) – EU harmonized tariff number: TARIC 35079090. Pure research purposes. Not dangerous. Not restricted, as per IATA speciExample1: Protein crystals in cryogenic dewar: Dry-shipper containing frozen protein crystals for scientific experiments at Elettra Synchrotron (Trieste, Italy) – EU harmoal provision A152

      Example2: Triazole-based crystals in cryogenic dewar: Molecular crystals for scientific experiments at Elettra Synchrotron (Trieste, Italy) – EU harmonized tariff number: TARIC 2933XXX. Pure research purposes.  Not dangerous, not restricted, as per IATA special provision A152

      Example3: Triazole-based crystals within glass containers in dry box: Molecular crystals for scientific experiments at Elettra Synchrotron (Trieste, Italy) – EU harmonized tariff number: TARIC 2933XXX. Pure research purposes.  Not dangerous.

    • Commercial value: "Value declared for customs purpose: 10 Euro" [free to change it. This value was fine for other users. Avoid to declare zero as a value: it can not be accepted by the customs]
    • Duties and taxes: "Payable by exporter"
    • If required specify "Non-flammable gas 2" as hazard class
    • For administrative issues (e.g. customs problems) contact Marco Palci (marco.palci@elettra.eu, (+39) 040 375 8969)).
    • We suggest to organize the shipment pick-up at the beginning of the week to avoid delays at custom due to the weekend
  1. If your samples are dangerous, do NOT send them without a written permission from the beamline responsible.

  2. In your VUO account, under “Already submitted proposals” in the “Your Proposals” section, select the proposal relative to the samples to be sent from the list and find the “Add dewar/container” link.
  3. Fill the form adding the information you got from your express courier. Courier name, tracking number, dewar code (a unique product-code printed usually at the top or at the bottom of the dewar), expected dispatch date. Please if you changed any of the informations suggested in point 4 above (e.g. commercial value) let us know using the Notes box.
    Once saved the information above, it is possible to update the dewar description file you have prepared according to point 2. You can upload here also a copy of the proforma invoice you added to the shipment (if present) and  a copy of any other declaration you added (if present).

Recovering your samples back to home Institution

  1. As soon as a beamtime ends, the proposer receives a notification vie email in order to download the data and organize the dewar(s)/sample caontainer pickup at Elettra.  We do not have the space or the manpower to keep your dewar(s) much longer after the experiments: the proposer is strongly invited to promptly contact an express courier for samples recovery.
  2. If you are sending back not dangerous samples outside European Uninon, organize the pick-up shipment using the following informations:
  • Do NOT organize the shipment as “temporary exportation”
  • Purpose/Description of contents: Describe kind of specimen and add "for scientific experiments at Elettra Synchrotron (Trieste, Italy)”. Put the EU harmonized tariff number which better describes your samples (find it in https://www.tariffnumber.com/) and eventually add “Not dangerous”.
