Information of sample container

Curator prepared JAXA container to package up samples for transfer to an investigator’s institution, in a high-purity nitrogen (ppb levels of trace gases) atmosphere. So the samples can reach the investigator without exposure to the earth’s air.

The selected researcher who wants to send the allocated samples with their special container must explain to JAXA the reason why the samples should be transported with the special container in the proposal sheet. Then it must send the special container to JAXA until two weeks after it would receive an e-mail of result of the review. JAXA will decide the sample treatment environments based on the researcher’s request and the cleanliness level of the container. If the researcher could not send the container until a month after the result e-mail, JAXA will send the samples the researcher with the JAXA container.
