French Equivalent: Échantillon dupliqué

A sample which is taken up twice for enquiry by two different parties of investigators. Two interpenetrating samples assigned to two investigating parties are sometimes so arranged, for purposes of control of field operations, as to have common sample units these common units constitute a duplicated (sub-)sample.

This should be distinguished from a duplicate sample.
