Destructive sampling: insect collection

Destructive or invasive sampling of specimens for research purposes generally involves irreversible changes (including complete destruction) to the samples.

Our destructive sampling policy governs a variety of situations, including:

  • scanning electron microscope studies (SEM), which involve a metallic coating of specimens
  • morphological disarticulation studies
  • serological or protein studies
  • and chromosome or DNA research.
