I got some of them just by killing any symbiote I saw excluding the zombies in the streets since they are just normal. If you have done tons of the other optional missions and have the achievements, I would skip the samples because myself and another member on here never found 2 of them so they are possibly unobtainable.

Just keep playing the game UNTIL you get to the mission that tells you that you can't finish any outstanding optional missions... My guess is not all 6 are available from the start... I mean I only see the big symbiotes now and then, haven't seen the white ones in a while and haven't seen the flyers or electric ones

No they are not available from the start. I forget the names but first you get the small black ones. Then after different missions you get more. i don't know the order but vulture and electro open a couple. The protect shield barrier opens another. In any case, there is no sure way to collect the sample. some cases i killed a couple and got it and sometimes i had to kill 20 or 30 before i would get the sample. its is just random.

What is the name of the strong symbiote. I'm wondering if I got it already. That and the white ones (non zombie)

Edit: Ok I don't know which ones are the berserker ones and which are the slasher ones... Thoughts?

"To obtain a sample , you must be near the symbiotes when they explode and you must press the Y button. I didn't figure this out until my third or fourth sample" That is something I read from someone in the Xbox.com forums for Web of Shadows, I'm in the process of getting the optional mission achievements and I am going to try this out after work.

Hope this works...

Beserkers are the pure red ones. You will not be able to fight one of them until the mission where SHIELD is moving their base from Stark Tower to Fisk Tower.

Slashers are the white ones. You will see them "slash" at the air.

Hope this helps.

No, keep beating on a symbiote past when its life bar has expired. This should help you free people from symbiotes and capture a sample.
