Order Process

Step 1: Send an email to to indicate your interest in AMSL services.

Step 2: A staff member will respond with a Qualtrics survey to obtain information specific to your needs.

Step 3: Upon return of the Qualtrics survey, a quote will be sent to you via email. A brief follow-up meeting may be needed to discuss additional details regarding project goals.

*The following steps apply to internal/Ohio State clients only. External clients will follow a different process, including signing a testing agreement. For external clients, AMSL will contact you to outline the process.

Step 4: To move forward with the project, initiate a non-catalog requisition in Workday.

Workday requisition information:

  • Internal Supplier: Applied Microbiology Services Lab.
  • The requisition should be entered as a service, not a good.
  • Reference the Quote ID in the Internal Memo field and provide contact information (name and email address).
  • Follow unit-level policies/procedures for initiating a requisition.
  • Once the requisition is approved at all levels, a purchase order will be generated and sent automatically to AMSL.

Step 5: Upon receipt of the purchase order, sample drop-off logistics can be coordinated with an AMSL staff member.

Step 6: Orders will be billed in Workday upon completion of service(s)

  • AMSL is unable to pre-bill/pre-charge
  • For large orders, billing will occur at different intervals based on completion of “batches” as determined by the AMSL staff and IDI’s business manager
