If your bottling session is drawn by our random system for an IQO homogeneity check , all you have to do is prepare a package with the bottle corresponding to the number extracted from the IQO Portal (represented by the number in the green circle in the corresponding image) . Once the package has been prepared with the bottle extracted and labeled as per the instructions , log in to the IQO Portal and indicate that the bottle is ready to be collected , we will come to collect it from your company.

The lot drawn will however be marketable immediately. Once the IQO homogeneity analyzes have been completed, you will be notified of the outcome both via email and via the IQO Portal .
