Laboratory Testing

Service Testing
Universal Seed is happy to offer service testing for our non-production customers. Our specialty is vegetable seed, and our detailed reports of analysis can provide valuable information to growers, producers, and buyers of many different species. We are also able to offer visual inspection exams on officially drawn samples, suitable for phytosanitary certification. Please don't hesitate to reach out to our lab staff if you have any questions! Universal Seed LLC - Testing Lab is accredited by the National Seed Health System for visual inspection. Accreditation verification online at
How to send samples:
Please include a new customer form if one has not yet been completed, and clearly identify your submitted samples with the lot, kind, and variety (or VNS), as well as the tests requested. Samples sent via USPS should be mailed to the main Universal Seed LLC office, as they do not deliver direct to the lab.

Direct to lab via UPS or FedEx:
Universal Seed LLC - Seed Lab
3465 Independence Hwy
Independence, HWY 97351

To main office via USPS:
Universal Seed LLC - Seed Lab
1285 N. Main Street

To help everyone take the best samples possible, the AOSA has made the chapter of the AOSA Rules regarding seed sampling available to the public. It can be found at the joint AOSA/SCST website
