Bad oil sample

I am going through the survey process and the oil samples came back questionable. Some work had been done to aftercoolers and heat exchangers but no oil change was done after this work was completed. The broker is suggesting the oil be changed and new samples run. The only curve in this process is that due to health issues the owner is unable to take the boat out for the 10-12 hours needed prior to a new sample being done. They are suggesting that it be run at the dock, in gear, so there is a load, at 1200-1400 rpm. Would this be adequate?
