French term or phrase: Mélange suspecté
This is from an investigation report summary on non-compliant analyses from labwork. Below is the sentence:

Mélange suspecté au niveau des échantillons #3 et #4 lors de la préparation des dilutions.

It's not clear to me whether samples 3 and 4 were switched or somehow the two were mixed together. I'm not sure if the best term for "Mélange" here would be "mixture" or something else.

Thanks in advance!
